Tesla is recalling 300,000 vehicles due to a software glitch in the taillights.

Tesla is recalling over 300,000 vehicles in the United States due to a software fault that can cause taillights to go out intermittently, increasing the risk of a collision.

The glitch may affect one or both taillights on certain Model 3 and Model Y vehicles, according to documents posted Saturday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. According to the company, the software issue does not affect brake lamps, backup lamps, or 

The automaker stated that it will issue an online software update to correct the issue.

The recall affects certain Model Y SUVs from 2020 to 2023 and Model 3 sedans from 2020 to 2023. This could amount to 321,628 vehicles.

Tesla discovered the issue last month after receiving complaints, primarily from customers outside the United States, that their vehicle taillights were not illuminated. Earlier this month, the company completed an investigation into the problem.

Owners will be notified in writing beginning January 14. According to documents, vehicles in production and those scheduled for delivery received the update beginning Nov. 6.

According to the documents, as of Nov. 14, Tesla had received three warranty claims related to the problem but was not aware of any related crashes or injuries.
