Tesla told NHTSA that as of Jan. 31 it was unaware of any crashes or injuries related to the issue.
Tesla said in a document filed with NHTSA, the South Korea Automobile Testing & Research Institute (KATRI) on Jan. 6 brought the condition to Tesla’s attention.
Tesla said on the recalled vehicles a software error may prevent the chime from activating upon vehicle start under certain circumstances.
The automaker said the issue was limited to circumstances where the chime was interrupted in the preceding drive cycle and the seat belt was not buckled subsequent to that interruption.
Tesla added the issue does not affect the audible seat belt reminder chime from activating when the vehicle exceeds 22 km/h and the driver seat belt is not detected as buckled.
The condition does not impact the accuracy of the accompanying visual seat belt reminder.
Tesla has come under increasing scrutiny from U.S. regulators and issued a number of recalls in recent months.
Tesla will perform an over-the-air software update that disables the “rolling stop” functionality, NHTSA said.
