Problem description:

An electrical overload in the 48Volt (V) electrical system may cause a failure of the Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor (MOSFET).

This may cause an electrical cascade failure, causing the DCDC convertor to experience an electrical short where the 12V circuit shorts to ground.

As a result, smoke from the DCDC converter can be vented into the passenger compartment, and where sufficient oxygen exists, a sustained vehicle fire may occur.

The Land Rover Discovery Sport MHEV models affected by this recall were manufactured between 25 May 2018 and 2 October 2020.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Land Rover dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.

Check the vehicle's history

UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
