Range Rover Evoque recall to fix alarm going off

By Peter Chubb - Apr 10, 2013

For some time now my friend has been telling me about issues he has had with his Range Rover Evoque going off unexpectedly. This problem has been ongoing for him since before Christmas, and after several phone calls to Land Rover, it seemed as though this was something he was going to have to put up with, just until they knew how to rectify the issue.

We have now learned that Land Rover is to issue a Range Rover Evoque recall, which is to resolve the alarm going off intermittently. However, because this news has just been passed on to our friend we do not have a date for this Evoque recall, but we believe it should be soon.

In the meantime we would advise you to call your local Land Rover dealer, as they currently have no information in regards to this recall. Although, when we I hear back from my friend I’ll include an update below.

Going back to the initial problem with the Evoque, the alarm will go off for no reason at all, and in some cases owners have been unable to lock the door after they undone the locks in order to deactivate the siren. We do know this is software related, and all Land Rover will need to do is force a software update, which should be done while you wait.

Have you received any correspondence from Land Rover in regards to this ongoing alarm issue?
