The Texas-based electric vehicle manufacturer says it has had no reports of any crashes or injuries related to the move and it is understood the firm will provide a wireless update to correct the issue.
Tesla is recalling around 321,000 vehicles in the US because of potential problems with their rear lights, according to a filing made public on Saturday.
The Texas-based electric vehicle manufacturer said the recall affects some 2023 Model 3 and 2020-2023 Model Y vehicles.
It is understood that the firm will provide a wireless update to correct the issue, which causes rear lights to intermittently fail to come on.
The move came to light as a result of a filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Just days ago, the car company recalled about 30,000 Model X cars over an issue that may cause the front passenger air bag to inflate incorrectly and increase the risk of injury.
Earlier this month, the firm recalled more than 40,000 Model S and Model X vehicles due to the risk of a loss of power steering assist when driving on rough roads or after hitting a pothole.

Tesla has reported 19 US recall campaigns in 2022 covering more than 3.7 million vehicles, according to NHTSA data.
At Tesla’s shareholders meeting in August, ahead of the Twitter deal being struck, Mr Musk was asked about a succession plan and replied: “I intend to stay with Tesla as long as I can be useful.”
“So I think Tesla would continue to do very well even if I was kidnapped by aliens or went back to my home planet maybe.”
Tesla director James Murdoch recently told a court that Mr Musk had identified a potential successor to head the firm, but did not name them.
