Jaguar Land Rover Ireland Limited recalls certain ‘Land Rover Range Rover Evoque’ and ‘Land Rover Discovery Sport’ passenger vehicles
November 27, 2020
Jaguar Land Rover Ireland Limited is carrying out a voluntary recall of certain ‘Land Rover Range Rover Evoque’ and ‘Land Rover Discovery Sport’ passenger vehicles.
A concern has been identified with certain 2019 and 2020 Model Year Range Rover Evoque and Discovery Sport MHEV vehicles where an electrical overload event in the 48Volt (V) electrical system may cause a failure of the Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor (MOSFET). Failure of the MOSFET may cause an electrical cascade failure, causing the DCDC convertor to experience an electrical short where the 12V circuit shorts to ground. When the DCDC convertor experiences an electrical short to ground, the 12V electrical system will discharge, this will be indicated by the battery warning tell-tale on the Instrument Cluster. In extreme cases, the vehicle occupants may notice a burning smell and/or smoke from the DCDC converter vent into the passenger compartment. Where sufficient oxygen exists, a sustained vehicle fire may occur.
The vehicles in question were manufactured from 25 May 2018 to 02 October 2020.
There are 444 affected vehicles in the Republic of Ireland.
What to do:
Jaguar Land Rover Ireland Limited will directly contact all affected customers advising them to make an appointment with their local dealer or authorised repairer, where necessary works will be carried out on vehicles.
If your vehicle is impacted by this recall, you can contact Jaguar Land Rover Ireland Limited on 01 4893790 (open Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm) or alternatively, using the following web form.Return to Product Recalls
