Fix Tesla Flashing Signal Lights – Pro Tip

If you’ve recently replaced the headlights on your Tesla, you may have noticed a flashing signal light and an error message on your car’s screen. This issue can occur even if you didn’t get the new headlights from Tesla. The good news is that you can fix it with a simple software update.

When you replace a part on your Tesla that requires a software update, it’s important to wait until you have an update available from Tesla. This is because the new part may not be compatible with the current software version of your car, causing issues like the flashing signal lights.

To fix this issue, simply wait until you receive a software update notification from Tesla. Once you have the update, you can swap out the part and perform the update to ensure compatibility. This will fix the flashing signal lights and error message on your car’s screen.

It’s important to note that this issue can occur with other parts on your Tesla that require software updates, not just headlights. So, if you’re planning to replace any parts on your Tesla, be sure to check if a software update is required and wait until you have the update before making any changes.
