WASHINGTON — Jaguar Land Rover North America is recalling 28,037 vehicles, including the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover and Range Rover Sport, to fix a problem with the tire pressure monitoring system, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The recall also includes the 2013-'14 Land Rover LR4.
A stop-sale order has been issued by the automaker until the recall repair is complete.
"In the affected vehicles, the tire pressure monitoring system may fail to learn the locations of the individual sensors while the vehicle is being driven," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "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. If the TPMS light illuminates because the sensors cannot be located, it could mask an actual low tire pressure condition, possibly resulting in tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash."
Jaguar Land Rover said it is not aware of any reports of accidents or injuries linked to the recall.
The affected vehicles were built from September 16, 2013 to June 30, 2014.
Land Rover dealers will update the Body Control Module software. The recall is expected to begin on December 1. Owners can contact Land Rover at 1-800-637-6837.
Edmunds says: This recall begins shortly, but if you are experiencing a problem with your Land Rover in the meantime, it's best to contact your dealer.
