Nov. 19 (UPI) -- Tesla announced Saturday that the company would recall more than 320,000 vehicles over a taillight issue that could cause them to illuminate improperly.

The issue, which involves 321,000 vehicles, covers some 2023 Model 3 and 2020-2023 Model Y vehicles, the company said in a filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

It said it would deploy an over-the air update to correct the issue and has had no reports of crashes or injuries related to the vehicle.

The company said the recall followed customer complaints it became aware of in late October, largely from foreign markets, claiming vehicle tail lights were not illuminating.

Following an investigation, Tesla found in rare cases the lights may intermittently not work due to an anomaly that may cause false fault detections during the vehicle wake-up process.

Yahoo Finance reported that Tesla has reported 19 U.S. recall campaigns in 2022 covering more than 3.7 million vehicles including four callbacks in November.
