Why Tesla FSD Beta Software Is Paused
Customers are quite disappointed as Tesla has put the installations of Full Self-Driving beta software on hold in the US and Canada. The installation is paused until the safety recall is addressed. In other words, the installation of Full Self-Driving beta software is halted because of a system recall that federal safety regulators alerted could allow vehicles to be dangerous around junctions and result in accidents.

It was National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that identified the safety issue while testing and analyzing the system. As per the NHTSA, in some possibilities, the software can break traffic safety laws.

In a new company support page, Tesla said that they have paused the latest or pending installations of FSD beta software which is a progressive driver support feature costing around $15,000. The software will be paused until it allocates an over-the-air software update that fixes the issue.
The company support page states,” Until the software version containing the fix is available, we have paused the rollout of FSD Beta to all who have opted-in but have not yet received a software version containing FSD Beta,”
