1999 Land Rover Discoverys Recalled

Washington, DC (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration today published the recall of certain 1999 Land Rover Discoverys  manufactured between May 1998 - June 1999 because the contacts of the relay that operates the anti-lock brake system (ABS) pump can stick and remain closed when commanded to open by the ABS electronic control unit. The warning lamp will illuminate and an audible alarm will sound. The anti-lock braking system will not function and the vehicle may experience inadvertent braking for less than a second.

Approximately 11,099 vehicles are affected by this recall.

Dealers will replace the ABS relay. Owner notification began during August 1999.

Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Land Rover at 1-301-731-9040.
