Some of Land Rover’s latest vehicles need a fix for their tire pressure monitoring system affecting about 28,037 units. The recall covers the 2013-2014 LR4, 2014 Range Rover and 2014 Range Rover Sport that have a build date between September 16, 2013, and June 30, 2014.
The issue is that the TPMS might not be able to locate the sensors while the vehicle is underway. As a result, the low tire pressure warning light could illuminate even if the tire pressures are accurate. If this happens and one of the tires then loses air pressure, the driver wouldn’t know about it.
The fix is simply an update of the Body Control Module software for most models. However, it’s not compatible with the 2013 LR4, and these vehicles are getting new sensors. Obviously, this is being done at no charge to owners by Land Rover, and the recall is expected to start on December 1.
