Tesla is recalling the Model S and Model X cars of 2021-2022, as well as the Model 3 and Model Y cars of 2022 due to a charging problem that could lead to overheating of the infotainment screens.
Recall of 129,960 cars solves the problem with the CPU screen of the infotainment system, which may not cool down enough during a quick charge, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recall report.
This is unusual, because the main problem with fast charging is the battery temperature. But this time it’s a screen that could potentially overheat.

Overheating may cause the screen to be delayed or restarted. Because the rear view camera tape is displayed on the screen, this is considered a critical security issue. According to NHTSA documents, this has already been noted in 59 warranty claims and field reports.
Tesla at least plans to solve this problem, as it often does, by updating software over the air (OTA). It is expected that the firmware update to improve CPU temperature control will be ready by May 4th.
This is not the first problem with the Tesla screen. It took pressure from regulators before Tesla recalled 135,000 Model X and Model S. faulty touch screens.

Otherwise, Tesla was able to solve a number of problems for which it must submit revocation documents, completely by air and without visiting the service center. But instead of fixing the defects, some recent examples, including cars, are programmed on ride through the stop signs and a Boombox function. which interfered with pedestrian warning sounds included consideration of functions that did not comply with federal regulations.
And Tesla is unable to handle all recalls with OTA updates. Anything involving hardware still requires a certain manner of personal verification.
