Due to an error in the assembly process, the occupant detection system (ODS) of the front passenger seat had not been installed on the seat cushion. As a result, no audible signal sounds and no warning symbol will appear on the instrument panel to warn the driver when the front passenger seat is occupied but the seat belt is not fastened. This may increase the risk of not having the seat belt fastened in the event of an accident, increasing the risk of injury.
The Land Rover Discovery vehicles affected by this recall were manufactured between 10 July 2020 and 11 August 2021.
