Tesla recall: “Full Self-Driving” software runs stop signs

By TOM KRISHER AP Auto Writer
DETROIT (AP) — Tesla is recalling nearly 54,000 vehicles because their “Full Self-Driving” software lets them roll through stop signs without coming to a complete halt.

Documents posted Tuesday by U.S. safety regulators say that Tesla will disable the feature with an over-the-internet software update.

The software allows vehicles to go through intersections with all-way stop signs at up to 5.6 miles per hour.

Tesla knows of no crashes or injuries.

The recall covers Model S sedans and X SUVs from 2016 through 2022, as well as 2017 to 2022 Model 3  sedans and 2020 through 2022 Model Y SUVs.
