Concern With Convertible Roof Switch
Body, Interior & Misc., August 5, 2013
RepairPal Expert Overview
Our Quick Take:
The convertible roof switch does not meet federal safety standards regarding its operation of the power windows.
What Should You Do?
Jaguar will notify owners beginning September 27, 2013. If don't receive notification and you feel you should, please contact your dealer for further instruction. They may ask for your vehicle identification number (VIN), so please have it handy when you call. The Jaguar recall number is J030.
When the convertible roof is operated, the power windows are also activated. The switch in the overhead console for opening and closing the convertible roof does not operate the power windows in a manner consistent with federal safety standards. Dealers will replace the overhead console with a new one which contains a revised switch to correct this concern.
