Tesla expanded the number of Full Self-Driving (FSD) Beta testers with the release of V10.3 late last night.
It unfortunately didn’t go smoothly, with an unexpected bug that resulted in a number of issues, including FSD and basic Autopilot being unable to engage.
We reported on the issue earlier this morning on Twitter after receiving several reports from our readers that they were also seeing false front collision warnings that resulted in hard braking.
We have received some reports of FSD 10.3 having major issues where FSD is essentially bricked.
Doesn’t engage (not even regular autopilot), random collision warnings and sudden hard braking.@elonmusk is there going to be an update soon?

Elon Musk confirmed the issue soon afterwards, saying the team was aware and working on a fix.
Until that fix is ready, Tesla has recalled the 2021.36.5.2 software update and sent the regular production build of 2021.36.5.1 to all beta testers. This means they will be unable to access FSD Beta and only have regular Autopilot and Navigate on Autopilot available.
This is even being done on cars not connected to WiFi, showing Tesla considers this a critical issue by forcing the update over the LTE data connection.
UPDATE 12:20pm PST: Several owners are now reporting that 2021.36.5.1 was pending on their cars, but has now disappeared. This could mean Tesla has already been able to fix 10.3 and it could be re-released soon.
Tesla has not yet released a timeline on when they expect to be able to re-release V10.3 to beta testers.
This is a developing story, keep checking back for updates…
