Tesla recalls 475,000 Model 3, S sedans for faulty rearview camera wiring

Tesla is recalling extra than 475,000 Product 3 and Product S sedans to handle a defect that can result in the rearview digital camera to prevent operating, the National Highway Targeted traffic Protection Administration declared Tuesday. The marketing campaign covers 2017-2020 Model 3s (symbolizing approximately 360,000 units) with an unspecified array of Model S manufacturing (NHTSA documentation appears to be incomplete as of the time of publication) making up the remaining ~115,000 units. 

About time, use of the trunk lid can don the wiring harness which includes the cable that carries signal from the rearview camera to Tesla’s main control and infotainment display. Consumers may perhaps recognize intermittent challenges with the digital camera display screen just before it fails solely.

“The Product 3 trunk harness is geared up with a solid core coaxial cable that gives the rearview camera feed for visibility on the middle display screen,” Tesla reported in its recall report to NHTSA. “The coaxial cable is affixed to a harness on the trunk lid and extends or folds as the trunk opens and closes. When the trunk is in a closed condition, the harness folds and may well experience a limited bend radius, stressing the core of the cable.”

“Over time, recurring opening and closing of the trunk lid may bring about too much wear to the coaxial cable. If the have on brings about the core of the coaxial cable to independent, the rearview camera feed is not visible on the centre exhibit,” it claimed. 

Tesla states it mail notices to owners to handle the recall by mid-February.
