Tesla has issued recalls for issues affecting the Models 3 and S. The campaigns cover a total of 475,318 vehicles.
The Tesla Model 3 recall affects 356,309 copies of the model, and those units have production dates of July 15, 2017 through September 30, 2020. The problem is that the wiring harness in the trunk includes a coaxial cable that handles video from the reversing camera. to feed. Over time, opening and closing the trunk can wear out this cable and potentially damage it. This may cause flickering or intermittent video feed from the camera.
Tesla first became aware of this issue in June 2021 when its field quality team observed high consumption of trunk wire harnesses from the company’s service division. This team investigated the situation through December 10, 2021, and this search found 2,301 warranty claims and 601 field reports on this issue in the United States. There is no evidence of accidents, injuries or death due to this fault.
To repair it, technicians at Tesla service centers will inspect the wiring. If there is no problem, technicians install a guide that prevents this problem from happening again in the future. If the cable is worn, the vehicle receives a new trunk harness and guides it. Tesla plans to start contacting affected owners about this on February 18, 2022.
The Tesla Model S recall covers 119,009 vehicles and their production dates are September 16, 2014 through December 23, 2020. The problem is that the secondary lock assembly for the front storage area (frunk) could be lined up too far towards the back. ‘back. The location may prevent it from locking.
If somehow the primary latch inadvertently releases and the secondary latch is not engaged, the trunk could open and block the driver’s view out of the vehicle.
Tesla’s Field Quality team began investigating this issue in January 2021 as they investigated a case where the frunk of a 2018 Model S opened while the vehicle was in motion. The group found that the secondary latch was misaligned with the firing pin. and began to further research the problem.
It was not until December that the team analyzed the problem to find the cause and identify the population of affected vehicles. The team found four warranty claims and three field reports on this issue in the United States during the investigation. There are no reports of accidents, injuries or fatalities due to this problem.
Tesla service center technicians will inspect the secondary latch for this population of vehicles. If they find an S model where the secondary locking latch is misaligned with the firing pin, technicians would reassemble and reposition the parts for proper alignment. Tesla plans to begin notifying affected owners on February 18, 2022.
