Tesla is recalling additional than 475,000 Model three and Model S sedans to address a defect that can bring about the rearview camera to cease working, the Nationwide Freeway Site visitors Safety Administration introduced Tuesday. The campaign addresses 2017-2020 Model 3s (representing approximately 360,000 units) with an unspecified vary of Model S manufacturing (NHTSA documentation seems to be incomplete as of the time of publication) building up the remaining ~115,000 units.
Above time, use of the trunk lid can put on the wiring harness which contains the cable that carries sign from the rearview camera to Tesla’s key control and infotainment monitor. End users may well observe intermittent challenges with the camera screen right before it fails entirely.
“The Model three trunk harness is equipped with a good core coaxial cable that supplies the rearview camera feed for visibility on the middle screen,” Tesla reported in its recall report to NHTSA. “The coaxial cable is affixed to a harness on the trunk lid and extends or folds as the trunk opens and closes. When the trunk is in a shut point out, the harness folds and may well expertise a tight bend radius, stressing the core of the cable.”
“Above time, repeated opening and closing of the trunk lid may well bring about abnormal put on to the coaxial cable. If the put on leads to the core of the coaxial cable to different, the rearview camera feed is not seen on the middle screen,” it reported.
Tesla says it mail notices to entrepreneurs to address the recall by mid-February.
