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.

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.
A power steering hose may collapse and restrict fluid flow, causing loss of power steering assist. Dealers will replace the hose free of charge to resolve the concern.
The right rear brake line may rub on the rear subframe bracket and develop a fluid leak. Dealers will inspect the brake line for signs of wear, make necessary bracket and line adjustments, and replace any lines found wearing free of charge to resolve the problem.
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.
The charge air cooler hose may be out of position and loose, and may detach from its mounting. This can cause the engine to stall. Dealers will inspect the hose to make sure the clamp securing it is in the proper position and is tight free of charge to resolve the concern.
The certification label that lists weight ratings and manufacturing date as well as other data is missing from affected vehicles. Dealers will replace the vehicle or provide a refund to resolve the 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.
Vehicles equipped with a 5.0L gasoline engine are being recalled because a fuel leak can develop in the area of the fuel tank due to a cracked flange. This may result in an abnormal fuel smell or in fuel leakage onto the ground. This leaking fuel, in the presence of an ignition source, may result in a vehicle fire. Jaguar dealers will replace the affected fuel tank fuel outlet flange to correct this concern. The Jaguar recall number is J027.
