Land Rover's automonomous emergency braking (AEB) feature may be disabled without any warning light indicating there's a problem. The issue is believed to only affect 86 Range Rover, Range Rover Sport, and Discovery vehicles.
It's been nearly a year since the feds opened an investigation into Land Rover's door latch recall and in that time plenty of new complaints have come in.
NHTSA has received five unique reports alleging incidents of doors opening with the SUVs in motion, then repaired by replacing the latch assemblies. One Range Rover customer was allegedly injured by a door that inadvertently opened.
Two years ago Land Rover recalled 66,000 SUVs because their doors could fly open while driving. But the feds are now questioning if the recall included enough vehicles and if the software update was an adequate repair.
Land Rover has issued a recall that should hopefully stop doors from opening unintentionally.
Land Rover says an investigation determined there were problems with the electrical function of the keyless entry system. A short-circuit can turn the keyless entry motor into a brake and slow or stop the keyless lever from returning to its "home" position.
