Tesla Recalls 2 Million Cars Over Brake System Warning Light

Tesla car recalls came a week after the automaker recalled nearly 200,000 vehicles over concerns with the rearview camera sensing system. Should we relook at how we look at technology?

Tesla is recalling more than 2 million vehicles due to a brake system warning light issue. The recall says the warning light indicator letter font size was not in compliance with size height requirements, making it difficult for a driver to detect when illuminated, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The issue was discovered during a routine compliance audit involving a 2023 Tesla Model Y. Following the discovery, the NHTSA notified Tesla about the vehicle not complying with letter font size height requirements.

The recall impacts 2,193,869 vehicles and includes 2012-2023 Model S, 2016-2024 Model X, 2017-2023 Model 3, 2019-2024 Model Y and 2024 Tesla Cybertruck vehicles. Tesla began deploying an over-the-air software release in late January to affected vehicles. That update will increase the letter font size of the Brake, Park and Antilock Brake System (ABS). Remaining vehicles are expected to receive the over-the-air update this month. 

It’s not a great start of the year for Tesla, which last week announced it was recalling nearly 200,000 vehicles over concerns with the rearview camera sensing system.

In early January, Tesla recalled more than 1.6 million vehicles in China to address worries over its Autopilot driver-assistance tech, less than a month after the company was forced to recall more than 2 million vehicles in the United States to effectively address the same problem.

With the increasing number of mishaps involving technology which converted a good population of the world, things may not be as rosy as what at least Musk would like it to be. The technology-obsessed billionaire who just proudly announced his wireless brain chip which is supposed to enable individuals to control devices just by thinking may need to brace himself for more unexpected technical glitches, and maybe more PR speed bumps. 

Nonetheless, we cannot run away from the fact that technology neither qualifies as a replacement for job, nor an effective tool to lighten the load for some, or shave costs for others. While might modify the way we operate, for what is worth, there has to be a balance in utilising technology and recognise the importance of human interference.
