Crank Position Sensor issues sees Land Rover models recalled

Diesel-powered Land Rover vehicles could suffer engine cut-out

The same issue with a possibly faulty Crank Position Sensor that affects the Jaguar XF/XJ has led to a recall of a range of Land Rover models.

The Land Rover recall affects the 2012 to 2014 Model Year versions of the 3.0 litre TDV6 Land Rover Discovery, Range Rover Sport and Range Rover. The TDV8 powered Range Rover is also affected.

All the affected Land Rover vehicles were produced between the 2nd of April 2012 and the 2nd of May 2014.

The ACCC recall notice advising that the engine may not start, or may cut out without warning.

If the engine cuts out, the vehicle will lose brake power assistance and Power Assisted Steering (PAS) will also be lost, with the vehicle requiring increased steering effort.

If the vehicle is fitted with air suspension system, the system may reduce the vehicle to its lowest ride height position.

If the engine cuts out during use this poses an accident hazard to the driver and other road users.

Owners will be notified and instructed to take their vehicle to a preferred Authorised Retailer who will replace the engine Crank Position Sensor.
