AMD processors overheating caused a recall of 130,000 Tesla electric motors

Tesla is recalling 130,000 vehicles due to a problem in which an AMD processor in the infotainment systems overheats during fast charging, which can cause problems with the car’s touchscreen.

The Model S sedans and Model X crossovers, which are produced in 2021 and 2022, as well as the Model 3 and Model Y, which are produced in 2022, are subject to the recall. Documents released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration say that central processors may not cool enough during the fast charging process. This can cause the computer to freeze or restart, causing the multimedia system screen to run slowly or simply shut down.

Without a working screen, cars are deprived of a camera picture, the ability to control settings, and an indicator showing what position the transmission is in. This can increase the risk of an accident.


Tesla is fixing the problem with a software update that will improve the computer’s temperature control. Tesla says it discovered the problem during endurance tests. The company has no reports of accidents or injuries, but between January and early May it received 59 warranty claims.

Last year, Tesla began shipping cars with AMD Ryzen processors for the infotainment system. Earlier this year, some drivers noticed a slight decrease in range in cars equipped with Ryzen processors compared to older Tesla models equipped with Intel Atom.
