Jaguar Cars Has Recalled the 2002-2003 X-Type
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has released the
Models: Jaguar X-Type Year: 2002-2003
Number Potentially Involved: 49,174
Dates of Manufacture: February 2001 ? October 2002
Defect: On certain sedans, under some circumstances, the power circuit that
feeds the direction indicator
system could fail. This could result in the driver being unaware that the
external turning indicators are
not operating because the internal ?tell-tail? light on the driver?s
instrument panel continues to work
normally. The loss of rear turn signals could fail to warn a following
driver that the vehicle is turning
and could result in a crash.
Remedy: Dealers will replace the General Electric Module. Jaguar has not yet
provided an owner
notification schedule. Owners may contact Jaguar at 1-201-818-8500.
