Range Rovers Recalled for Defective Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensor
Land Rover is recalling more than 28,000 2014 Range Rover and Range Rover Sport, and model year 2013 – 2014 LR4 vehicles.
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 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.
This could mas an actual low-tire-pressure condition, increasing the risk of a blowout.
Chrysler issued a similar recall for its Ram ProMaster vehicles last month.
Land Rover will notify owners affected by the recall, and dealers will update the Body Control Module (BCM) software, free of charge.
For more information, owners can contact Land Rover customer service at (800) 637-6837, Option 9. Land Rover's number for this recall is P050.
