Tesla recalls nearly 1.1 million US vehicles to update window reversal software

Tesla is recalling nearly 1.1 million US vehicles because the automatic window reversal system may not react properly after detecting an obstruction, increasing the risk of injury.

The electric vehicle maker told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that it would perform an over-the-air software update of the automatic window reversal system. -2022 Model S and Model X vehicles.

Tesla said it was not aware of any warranty claims, field reports, accidents, injuries or deaths related to the recall.

NHTSA said a window that closes without the proper automatic reversing system can exert excessive force by pinching the driver or passenger before retracting, increasing the risk of injury.

NHTSA said the vehicles did not meet the requirements of a federal motor vehicle safety standard on power windows.

Tesla said that during product testing in August, employees identified the performance of the automatic window reversal system as having “larger-than-expected variations in response to puncture detection.”

After additional extensive testing, Tesla determined that the detection and retraction performance of the vehicles in the test results did not meet the requirements for auto-reversing systems.

Tesla said that as of September 13, vehicles in production and before delivery received a software update that establishes the operation of power windows as required.
