Dearborn, MI – March 16, 2021 – Jaguar Land Rover (NYSE:TTM) has recalled 26,805 sports utility vehicles due to a faulty Auto High Beam (AHB) system. The high beams light up on their own, increasing the risk of a crash. The recall includes the following compact SUVs:
- Land Rover Discovery 2020
- Land Rover Discovery 2018 – 2019
- Range Rover 2018 – 2020
- Range Rover Sport 2018 – 2020
- Range Rover Velar 2018 – 2019
- Range Rover Velar 2020
The above mentioned vehicles have a faulty Auto High Beam (AHB) system. The beams light up without the driver’s input and the instrument cluster does not provide any indication that they are on. The cause of the defect is software, with multiple part numbers, including JY32-14C088-JL and KY32-14C088-JG.
During nighttime, the faulty lights may blind oncoming drivers, upping the risk of an accident, which can injure or kill the motorists and passengers involved.
Other Jaguar Land Rover recalls
In July 2019, a “seat belt locking glitch” forced Jaguar to recall the Range Rover Sport 2018 and Range Rover Sport 2019. The driver and passengers could not properly fasten their seat belts, increasing the risk of an injury during an accident.
The 2020 Velar has not been subject to any other recalls.
Dealers will fix the issue by providing a free software update. The recall starts on April 23.
