Tesla recalls the 2013 Model S

Tesla Motors, Inc. is recalling certain model year 2013 Model S vehicles equipped for, and delivered with, certain NEMA 14-50 (240 volt) Universal Mobile Connector (UMC) adapters. During charging, the adapter, cord, or wall outlet could overheat.

NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V006000
Component: Universal Mobile Connector adapter
Potential Number of Units Affected: 29,222

Consequence:
An overheated adapter, cord, or wall outlet increases the risk of burn injury and/or fire.

Remedy:
Tesla will notify owners and provide an "over-the-air" software update. Some owners have already received this update. This update allows the Model S on board charging system to detect any unexpected fluctuations in the input power or higher resistance connections to the vehicle. If detected, the onboard charging system will automatically reduce the charging current by 25%.

Tesla owners can verify that they have received the updated software (version 5.8.4 or later) by viewing the vehicle's center information screen.

Additionally, Tesla will mail owners a replacement NEMA 14-50 adapter that is equipped with an internal thermal fuse. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Tesla Service Center at 1-877-79-TESLA (1-877-798-3752).

Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty: 1-800-424-9153); or go to Safercar.
