Last week, a total of four recall notices were issued from Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz and Nissan.
Kicking off the list is a recall notice for 2019-2021 Land Rover Discovery vehicles (VINs found here) which may have insufficient contact between the start-up battery ground stud and the chassis.
Affected vehicles may present with a range of electrical faults including the vehicle cutting out whilst being driven and losing all electrical power.
Known owners can expect to be contacted in writing and should arrange an inspection of their vehicle with their preferred dealer which may need to replace the start-up battery ground stud.
The first recall from Mercedes-Benz comes for 2018-2020 GLC 63 vehicles (VINs found here) which have been found to have a short circuit impacting the vehicle’s electronic system.
It appears that in affected vehicles the positive wiring to the starter motor becomes chafed as a result of regular vehicle use. This issue may lead to a vehicle fire and/or the engine may not restart after it has been shut down.
There was also a recall notice for 2019-2021 Mercedes-Benz VS30 Sprinter Vans (VINs found here) which may have an issue with the gear recognition function in the transmission not functioning as intended which could cause the reversing lamp to stop working until the next ignition change or engine start.
A loss of reverse lights may reduce visibility of the vehicle and provide no indication that the vehicle is reversing, increasing the risk of an accident occurring.
In both instances, affected owners are asked to contact their preferred Mercedes-Benz dealer to arrange for a free repair of their vehicle.
The final recall notice this week comes for 2015 Nissan Navara D23 vehicles (VINs found here) due to an issue that may see the child restraint system top tethers not able to keep a child seat securely fastened.
The tethers, which may break during an accident, may not be strong enough to securely fasten the child seat therefore a child may not be adequately restrained in their seat in the event of an accident.
Affected owners should contact their preferred Nissan dealer to organise for the child restrain system top tethers to be replaced, free of charge.
