Jaguar Land Rover Australia — Land Rover Discovery Sport 2017 MY and Range Rover Evoque 2016 & 2017 MY 2.0L Diesel with automatic transmission
What are the defects?
The engine harness may have been routed incorrectly and as a result could contact the water charge air cooler bracket. Vibration of the engine may cause chafing that results in the outer sheath of the cable wearing through, exposing the wires of the engine harness.
What are the hazards?
Depending on the location of the chafing, electrical arcing and short circuit may occur. A warning light on the instrument panel may illuminate. There could be loss of the electric steering system, engine cut-out without warning, melting of engine parts, smoke or an under-bonnet fire.
What should consumers do?
Owners will be notified by letter and instructed to take their vehicle to a preferred authorised Land Rover dealership, who will inspect the engine harness and water charge cooler bracket and reposition, repair or replace parts as needed.
Until the vehicle is inspected, it is recommended that it is parked outside, preferably away from other vehicles and property.
