San Francisco. Electric car maker Tesla is recalling 578,607 vehicles due to a possible problem with the boombox feature. According to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) document, some features of the boombox may result in vehicles not conforming to pedestrian warning standards.

As per the Teslarati report, the recent ‘recall’ currently affects the 2020-2022 Tesla Model S, 2020-2022 Tesla Model X, 2017-2022 Tesla Model 3 and the 2020-2022 Tesla Model Y.

Affected vehicles are equipped with external speakers that allow them to play different sounds when in motion.

Tesla’s Boombox feature is also driven through the vehicle’s external speakers.

According to the NHTSA document, Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 141 (FMVSS 141) outlines the performance requirements for pedestrian alert sounds for hybrid and electric vehicles.

It should be noted that the standard also prohibits manufacturers from changing or modifying the sound emission capability of a vehicle’s pedestrian warning system (PWS).

Tesla is working with firmware version 2020. 48.25 and later can pause sound through their PWS speakers when they are parked or in motion using a boombox.

Boombox has been in Tesla vehicles since December 24, 2020, when the feature was rolled out as part of the 2020 Holiday Update. (IANS)
