In July, Tesla’s autopilot system caught fire during a test drive.
The company said that after several minutes of testing, the system began to fail.
The automaker recalled some Model S and Model X vehicles, but the majority of Model 3 and Model 4 cars still remain on the road.
But the problem was caused by a faulty sensor, which failed to detect a red light at a parking lot.
The malfunction caused the car to stop and then turn into a stationary object, causing the driver to hit the brakes and lose control of the car.
Tesla blamed the problem on a faulty battery.
But some drivers who bought their Model Ss and Model E vehicles with the autopilot feature say the problem with the sensor was not related to the malfunction.
And the manufacturer says it was a driver error that triggered the problem.
The problem is not new, according to experts.
When Tesla was testing the Autopilot system in July, a driver accidentally drove the car into a parked vehicle at a red lights, according a Tesla spokesman.
Tesla’s system was meant to be used for safety reasons.
It would only be used if a car was going to crash.
The system’s sensors detect when an object is within reach of the vehicle, then it automatically accelerates to avoid the collision.
Tesla says the sensor had not failed for at least two years.
“The problem is related to an electrical fault in the sensor that causes it to fail in the first place,” Tesla spokesman Adam Jonas said in a statement to ABC News.
Jonas said that Tesla’s Autopilots sensor is an integrated part of the autopilots system.
That means the sensor is not connected to the computer or other parts of the system, but it works like the normal sensors.
The fault was found in an area that could potentially be a problem for the system.
Tesla also sent a replacement sensor to a third-party repair shop, which sent it back to Tesla.
Tesla told ABC News that the sensor should have been replaced within three weeks.
Tesla is investigating.
“This is a driver fault, not a computer issue,” Jonas said.
“There is no data that suggests the fault is with the Autosteer system itself.
The driver could have done something else.”
The problem was not isolated to the Model S or Model X, but was reported by several Tesla customers who said that the driver didn’t pay enough attention to the sensor.
A Tesla spokesman told ABC’s “20/20” that the problem affected “a number of vehicles” in Tesla’s fleet.
“We are continuing to investigate the issue, and are working to address it in a timely manner,” Jonas told “20” in an email.
The Autopelter system works by detecting an object in front of the driver’s car, then applying a brake to stop the car in its tracks.
The car then starts to move forward.
The sensor’s fault could have been caused by the driver not paying attention to its location.
Tesla said that it was “a driver error” that caused the problem to happen.
The “autopilot” system automatically turns the car around when the driver does not respond to the flashing lights.
The warning is given to the driver, who then has to use the brakes to get the car back on the straight road.
When the driver uses the brakes, the car continues moving forward.
But Tesla’s sensors could be inaccurate, and that could lead to the system giving a false warning.
A driver could be driving in an unsafe manner, and the Autobrake system could be a contributing factor, according the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
A study by the NHTSA found that in some crashes, the Automation system “is the primary contributor” to the car being in the air.
“While a driver’s attention is often directed to other distractions and tasks during the driving experience, the driver may not be paying attention during the Autocross and Autopeer systems,” the NHDSA said.
Autonomous driving in vehicles is not a new technology.
A number of automakers have been using it in their cars since 2014.
Tesla has been testing the system since the beginning of 2016, and it was certified as safe by the U.S. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration in April.
Tesla and its Autoport system are still being tested by the National Transportation Safety Board.
Autopetrol has also been used by several other automakers.
The systems work by turning a vehicle into a hovercraft and sending its brakes to counteract any damage.
“A hovercraft is a small, lightweight vehicle that can hover for a short time without the use of wheels,” Jonas wrote.
“It is capable of reaching speeds of up to 80 miles per hour, making it a viable alternative to other hovercraft technology.”
Tesla says that it has been using Autoports since 2015, but has been “testing them as a pilot program” since January.
Jonas told ABC that Tesla has implemented an “autobrake” feature that allows the Autoline
