Vehicles Affected: Approximately 7,000 model-year 2014-15 Jaguar F-Type sports cars repaired under a previous recall
The Problem: The seat belt harness connector that connects the seat belt tension sensor to the occupant classifcation sensor module may not have been correctly wired, affecting the restraint control module’s ability to accurately detect whether an adult or child is occupying the seat. In the event of a crash, this defect could result in the front passenger airbag deploying if there is a child in the front seat, increasing the risk of injury.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect the seat belt assembly and repair the seat belt tension harness, as necessary, free of charge.
What Owners Should Do: Jaguar will begin notifying owners June 21. Owners can call the automaker at 800-452-4827, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
