Tesla has announced a recall of 130,000 vehicles because a computer can overheat.
The company recalled some Model S sedans, 2021 and 2022 Model X SUVs, 2022 Model 3s and 2022 Model Y SUVs, The Associated Press reported.
According to documents released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the vehicle’s fast-charging process keeps the car’s central processing computers from cooling enough.
When the computer overheats, it can either lag or restart and the car’s touch screen can either operate slowly or appear to be blank.
When the screen doesn’t operate correctly, the driver may not be able to use rearview camera displays or windshield defrosters. They also may not know that the car is in drive, neutral or reverse, the AP reported.
Tesla has started sending out software updates to help manage the computer’s temperature.
There have been several Tesla recalls over the past year, but most have been corrected with software updates pushed to the vehicles, the AP reported.
