Tesla extends OTA recall for infotainment overheating issue to China

Tesla will soon be sending out an over-the-air (OTA) software update to more than 100,000 Model 3 and Model Y cars in China to fix concerns the vehicle’s touchscreen display might not function as designed.

According to China’s State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR), the infotainment unit in 107,293 vehicles built at Giga Shanghai between October 19, 2021 and April 26, 2022 might overheat when preparing for or during DC fast charging.

This could lead to vehicle’s touchscreen display to operate at a slower speed, or stop functioning altogether, resulting in an increased risk of collision.

SAMR says the “recall” will see the deployment of a software update to push vehicles to software update 2022.12.3.3 or newer, the same version referenced in documents from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) last week.

In that OTA recall, 129,960 Model S, Model 3, Model X, and Model Y cars could be subject to the issue, but Tesla estimated only 1% of that subject population actually had the bug.
