Of all the recalls happening this season, Jaguar has also joined the list, with a latest recall action of 7000 F-Types, over two separate electrical issues. While the larger of the issue pertains to the seat belt sensors, a smaller issue relates to 272 cars including XF, XJ and F-Types, in the U.S markets only. Jaguar has asked the related dealerships to check the problem and rectify them if needed.

The major issue, and affecting the larger number of cars is that of the seatbelt sensors. According to the notice issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, "the seatbelt harness connector which connects the Seatbelt Tension Sensor (STS) to the Occupant Classification Sensor Control Module (OCSCM) may not have been correctly wired." This means that if a child is seated in the front seat, the passenger air bag will remain activated.

The second Jaguar recall relates to 272 cars including the F-Type as well as the XF and XK. The cars are said to be affected by a Front End Accessory Drive belt, Power Assisted Steering pump pulley and the battery positive cable at the alternator. These issues can increase the risk of fire or the loss of power steering and is found only in the United States vehicles.

While the latter problem will be resolved by calling the affected units to the dealers and have them checked, the former relates to vehicles manufactured between 31 August, 2012 and 22 October, 2014 and the owners are required to bring their cars to their local dealership to correct the configuration of the harness connector wire. Jaguar will be notifying the related vehicle owners in the due course of time.
