Tesla is recalling 130,000 cars over CPU issues
The infotainment system on Tesla Model 3, Y (2022), X and S (2021 and 2022) vehicles overheats during fast charging.
Tesla recalled 130,000 units of his car due to CPU issues. This issue causes the vehicle’s infotainment system to overheat or overheat during fast charging and potentially damage the vehicle’s touchscreen. The company is known to have started rolling out an OTA (over the air) update on May 3 to address issues on affected vehicles, including Model 3, Y (2022), X and S (2021 and 2022). ).
Based on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announcement quoted from The Verge (11/5), the CPU is not cold enough when fast charging to avoid high temperatures. This slows down CPU processing.
“Slower processing or restarted processing may cause the center screen display to slow down or appear blank,” the report adds.
In addition, NHTSA found that this issue can prevent drivers from using the backup camera and touchscreen, and adjusting wiper speed. Although the cause of the problem was not explained, NHTSA said Tesla identified 59 warranty claims and 59 testimonials.
It should be noted that Tesla started embedding vehicles with AMD Ryzen-based chipsets that support the infotainment system last year. Earlier this year, some drivers noticed a slight reduction in range in cars equipped with Ryzen CPUs compared to older Teslas with Intel Atoms. However, the company didn’t say whether the new processor was part of the system’s overheating problem.
