A wiring problem with the fuel pump control system may shut down fuel flow to the engine, resulting in a stalled vehicle, as well as power steering and power braking system failure. Loss of engine power, braking and steering assist can result in an unsafe driving condition that could result in a crash. Dealers will inspect and replace wiring that controls the fuel pump to correct this concern.
A software problem turns off the front parking lights (side lamps) after approximately 5 minutes in affected vehicles. These are an important part of keeping others aware of a driver's presence, and vehicle safety requires they remain lit while in use. Dealers will update software that controls the parking lights to correct this concern.
The brake system uses fluid in hydraulic lines to operate the brake on each individual wheel. These vehicles are being recalled because junctions of these fluid lines could develop leaks. Loss of brake fluid can reduce braking efficiency, increasing the risk of a crash or personal injury. Dealers will inspect the affected brake line junctions and tighten them as necessary to correct this concern.
Passenger airbags in many late model vehicles are designed not to deploy if a child or child seat occupies the front passenger seat. Because of a wiring issue in the passenger front seat, the passenger airbag could deploy when it should not. Unintended deployment of the airbag in the event of a crash would increase the risk of injury to the seat occupant. Dealers will repair the seat wiring to correct this concern.
272 vehicles are being recalled because fasteners may have been installed incorrectly which secure the power steering pump pulley and accessory drive belt to the engine, as well as the positive cable on the alternator. Failure of these to stay secure can cause a loss of vehicle control, unsafe driving conditions and possibly result in fire.
All late model vehicles are equipped with a tire pressure information label. These vehicles are being recalled because "none" may be indicated for the recommended spare tire pressure. As a result the spare tire may not be properly inflated and ready to use if the need arises. Dealers will inspect the affected vehicles and attach a new tire pressure label as necessary to correct this concern.
297 vehicles are being recalled because one or both rear tow adjustment links may come loose from the rear sub-frame. These adjustment links are used to help control rear wheel alignment. If a tow link were to come loose a loss of directional control could result, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the nut and washer assembly on the rear toe links to correct this concern.
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.
One of the components of the engine air intake system is the Charge Air Cooler (CAC). The CAC cools the incoming air after it is compressed by the turbocharger. Special hoses connect the components of the intake system. These vehicles are being recalled because one of the hose clamps at the CAC may be out of position and loose, the hose may come off as a result. If the hose were to come off, the engine could stall, increasing the risk of a crash. Power assist for the brakes and steering would also be affected. Dealers will inspect the CAC hose clamp to make sure it is positioned and tightened correctly.
The fuel pump operaton is controlled by an electronic module that may shut down causing the fuel pump to stop and the engine to stall. If the engine stalls while driving, power steering and braking assist will be diminished. These systems will still function but will require much greater effort, increasing the risk of a crash. Jaguar dealers will install an additional wring harness to the in-tank fuel pump to correct this concern.
