WASHINGTON - Jaguar Land Rover North America LLC is recalling more than 5,000 MY 2010-2011 Jaguar XK and MY 2010 Jaguar XF V8 5.0L gasoline engine vehicles.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the in-tank electric fuel pump may not be correctly activated as the fuel pump relay is not energized following a vehicle startup cycle. An inadequate supply of fuel to the engine could result.
Fuel starvation to the engine can lead to engine stumble followed by engine cut-out with minimal warning. This poses a safety risk.
To remedy the problem, dealers will download revised software free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin near the end of August.
Vehicle owners can reach Jaguar at (800) 452-4827.
