Tesla says the problem does not affect brake lights or turn signals.
The company believes that the problem is caused by a firmware defect. Tesla will correct it with an over-the-air software update. As with all recall fixes, the fix is free.

Millions of vehicles on American roads need free recall repairs. To find out if your vehicle is one of them, check out the easy VIN tool in our Recall Center.
