Tesla Needs to Fix 130K Cars Because Their Ryzen APUs Are Overheating

Electric car maker Tesla has issued a soft recall for nearly 130,000 of its cars because of an overheating issue with its onboard CPU, according to a report by electrek. Overheating can cause the infotainment touchscreen to malfunction. Fortunately, this type of recall does not require people to return their car to the dealership, and a fix will be made available via an over-the-air software update.

Cars affected include the 2021-2022 Model X and Model S and 2022 Model 3 and Model Y, which use AMD’s Ryzen APUs. Older Teslas with Intel Atom CPUs appear to be unaffected because of their lower TDP. As this issue can affect critical car functions, the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) requires Tesla to issue a recall.
