Land Rover Recall P004 (P002): Brake Light Switch

2005 Land Rover Freelander

Failure to provide the proper signal when braking could lead to a crash without warning.

Exterior Lighting — Brake Lights — Switch

Summary
On certain sport utility vehicles, the brake lights may remain illuminated even when the brake pedal is not depressed. Hill descent control (hdc), traction control (tc) and cruise control warning lights may also be illuminated.
Actions
Dealers will inspect the brake lamp operation and where required, adjust and/or replace the brake light switches with new switches of the same design until a newly designed brake lamp switch is available in May 2007. Owners will then be re-notified to bring their vehicles in for the new brake light switch. An interim letter for the initial inspection was mailed on March 26, 2007. The second letter for replacement of the switches was mailed beginning July 30, 2007. Owners may contact Land Rover at 1-80-637-6837.
