Tesla Inc. is initiating its ninth U.S. vehicle recall in roughly three months, a spurt of safety-related fixes that’s coincided with regulators subjecting the carmaker to greater scrutiny.

The latest recall relates to a software error that may prevent the federally mandated chime that reminds drivers to buckle up from going off. Tesla will remedy the issue with an over-the-air update to more than 817,000 vehicles.
