Tesla to Fix Rear Camera Display with Software Update

Tesla has informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) of an issue affecting the rearview camera display in approximately 199,575 vehicles.

Again while wording is designating this as a “recall” Tesla will fix the issue with a software update. The affected cars include 2023 models of Tesla Model S, X, and Y, as reported on January 22, 2024.

The issue pertains to software instability that may prevent the rearview camera image from displaying in vehicles equipped with the company’s Full Self-Driving 4.0 hardware. Affected software versions are identified as 2023.44.30 through 2023.44.30.6 and 2023.44.100. This problem could potentially decrease driver visibility during reverse maneuvers, though Tesla is proactively addressing it through a software solution.

Tesla plans to rectify the issue via an over-the-air (OTA) software update, which will be provided free of charge to owners of the affected vehicles. The company is set to notify owners of this update, expected to begin distribution by March 22, 2024.
