Jaguar Land Rover Australia - Land Rover Discovery Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
What are the defects?
Software within the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) may in certain circumstances record a Diagnostic Trouble Code and log this as a detected fault. When the vehicle is next switched on, the system will flag a Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) defect. This will cause the Yaw Stability Control (YSC), Electronic Traction Control (ETC) and Gradient Release Control systems to be disabled. Air suspension will go into 'Safe Mode' and will be lowered to its lowest setting.
What are the hazards?
Vehicles with lowered suspension and the stability system disabled will no longer meet the vehicle stability requirements. The vehicle will not automatically restrict its maximum speed. This may cause a loss of stability, which could increase the risk of a vehicle crash.
What should consumers do?
Owners will be notified and instructed to contact their preferred Authorised Repairer as soon as possible to arrange for the rework action to be carried out.
