Recently, Tesla Motors has had to deal with the latest in a line of high-profile fire events involving one of its cars. Tesla, quick to dismiss any probability the car itself caused the fire, has already released a software update for the car to deal with its suspected cause for the fire--faulty wiring in the garage's electrical supply. The update is an "automatic charge current reduction" function able to cope with fluctuations in the input power to the vehicle.
