Recall 14V618000

Tire Pressure Monitoring System Fails

Recall Details

The tire pressure monitoring system may fail, causing warning lights to illuminate due to not detecting the wheel sensors properly. Dealers will update the body control module software free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The system that monitors proper tire pressures may fail, due to a problem with the system locating and being able to properly monitor the sensors in each wheel. This can result in a warning for low tire pressure not occurring, and can result in unsafe vehicle operation.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Land Rover must be performed by a Land Rover dealership. Land Rover notified owners of affected vehicles starting in December, 2014. If you did not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Land Rover dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with. The Land Rover recall number is P050.

Summary
Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC (Land Rover) is recalling certain model year 2014 Range Rover and Range Rover Sport and 2013-2014 LR4 vehicles manufactured September 16, 2013, to June 30, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) may fail to learn the locations of the individual sensors while the vehicle is being driven. As a result, the low tire pressure warning light will illuminate, despite the the tire pressures being within specification. Should one of the tires subsequently lose air pressure, the driver would not be notified of the change in air pressure.
Consequence
If the TPMS light illuminates because the sensors cannot be located, it could mask an actual low tire pressure condition, possibly resulting in tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy
Land Rover will notify owners, and dealers will update the Body Control Module (BCM) software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on December 1, 2014. Owners may contact Land Rover customer service at 1-800-637-6837, Option 9. Land Rover's number for this recall is P050.
Notify
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
