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.

This can cause a standard door closure procedure to make the latch appear to work with the striker, and the door can look to be closed but it won't be latched.

The recall covers the 2013-2016 Range Rover and 2014-2016 Range Rover Sport manufactured before March 10, 2015.
