Nissan recalls Rogue hybrids that may stall

Franklin, TN – November 19, 2021 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) has recalled 5,905 hybrids that may stall on the road, increasing the risk of an accident. The recall includes the following cars:

  • 2017 Nissan Rogue hybrid vehicles
  • 2018 Nissan Rogue hybrid vehicles
  • 2019 Nissan Rogue hybrid vehicles

Recall summary  

The recall centers around an issue with the engine harness, which is a bundle of wires that connects the engine to the rest of the car. 

In the recalled vehicles, these wires may rub against another part of the car and become damaged, which could cause a short circuit. This might lead to a blown fuse, which would cause the car to lose power entirely and stall.

Recall risks

Stalls, especially in faster-moving traffic, can be very dangerous, putting a car at risk of getting hit.  Read more about what to do if your car stalls on the road in this article about a recent Chrysler stalling recall.

Background of the recall

The part of the car that the harness may rub against is called the electronic module control (ECM) bracket. The ECM is a computer that controls over 100 elements in the car and the bracket physically supports it.

The harness that is the center of this recall has  part number 240126FM0C.

The repair

Nissan will install a wire harness protector to guard the wires from damage from the Nissan ECM bracket. Nissan will start notifying owners about the recall on December 15.

Recent recalls

Nissan  recently recalled over 7,000 other hybrids for another stalling issue. This recall affected Infiniti, Murano and Pathfinder hybrids.

Nissan recalls hybrids with software issue causing stalls

Franklin, TN – October 24, 2021 – Nissan  (OTCMKTS:NSANY) has recalled 7,634 hybrid electric vehicles with a software issue that may stall the car. The recall includes:

  • 2014 – 2017 Infiniti QX60 Hybrid
  • 2015 – 2016 Nissan Murano Hybrid
  • 2014 – 2015 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid

The affected component is the Hybrid Power Control Unit (HPCM) Module with multiple part numbers, including  237A13JV9B and 237A13JV9C.

Recall summary  

A hybrid powertrain transfers “power to the driving wheels” of a hybrid car. The recall stems from an issue with the HPCM, a small computer that controls the car’s hybrid powertrain while monitoring other parts of the car. If the HPCM detects damage to a certain bearing, it may determine that the car is overheating and cut off the power, causing the car to stall.

Recall risks

Stalls pose a risk to drivers on the road, who may get hit by faster-moving traffic. Read more about stall-related safety issues in this article about a Chrysler recall.

The repair

Nissan and Infiniti dealers will reprogram the HPCM for free. Nissan will send owners notification letters with further instructions starting on December 3.

Recent Nissan recalls

Earlier this month, Nissan recalled over 10,000 Pathfinders with potentially defective headrests, and 5,895 more Pathfinders whose seats could detach during a crash. More stall-prone Infinitis were recalled this past spring due to a separate control module software issue.

Nissan recalls vehicles with loose headrests

Franklin, TN  – October 18, 2021 – Nissan (OTCMKTS: NSANY) is recalling 10,082 2022 Nissan Pathfinder SUVs, whose headrests on third-row seats may detach during a crash, increasing the risk of an injury.  

Recall summary  

Vehicles that are part of this Nissan recall notice have headrests on their third-row seats that may have not been assembled properly. This happened because their components were misaligned and incorrectly welded during the production process. As a result, the headrest may detach during a crash.

The components in question are central and outside headrests on the third-row seats, with multiple part numbers including 86410 6TA0A and 86480 6TA2C. 

Recall risks

A loose headrest will not provide sufficient support to the passenger’s head during a rear-end collision, which increases the risk of an injury.  

Warning signs

Owners may notice the headrest moving in an “abnormal” way, which happens because of the excessive play within it. 

Other Nissan Pathfinder recalls

Despite being in production for a few months only, the new Nissan Pathfinder is already subject to at least one more recall. It deals with second-row seats, whose backsides may detach from the restraint points during a crash. 

The repair

To fix the issue, Nissan authorized dealers will replace all three headrests on third-row seats. Notifications about the repair will be sent to vehicle owners around November 19, 2021.

This Nissan recall includes more than 10,000 vehicles. To do a Nissan recall check and see if yours is one of them, use  MotorSafety’s free vehicle lookup tool.

Nissan is recalling vehicles over risk of seat detachment

Franklin, TN  – October 17, 2021 – Nissan (OTCMKTS: NSANY) is recalling 5,895 2022 Nissan Pathfinder SUVs, whose second-row seats may collapse in a crash, which increases the risk of an injury. 

Recall summary  

This Nissan recall notice includes vehicles whose second-row seats were not welded properly. In the event of a crash, the backside of the seat may detach from its restraint points

The component in question is the left and right seat frame with multiple part numbers including 88050 6TD4A and 88000 6TF8C. 

Recall risks

Seats with backsides that are not fully secured in place may fail to adequately restrain the passengers during a crash. This increases the risk of an injury.  

Warning signs

Broken welds may produce a noticeable rattle in the seat frame.

Other Nissan Pathfinder recalls

Although it entered production only a few months ago, the new Nissan Pathfinder is already subject to at least two recalls.  Besides the seat issue, there is also a recent problem with third-row headrests that may detach during a collision

The repair

Nissan authorized dealers replace the seat frame assembly if the welds are broken or cracked. Notifications about the repair will be sent to vehicle owners around November 19, 2021.

Nissan recalls Rogue crossovers over unsecured child car seats

Franklin, TN – September 13, 2021 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) has recalled 47,098 compact SUVs with faulty back seat tether wires, which help anchor children’s car seats. The wires may fail to hold the seat during a crash or a sudden stop, increasing the risk of injury for the child in the seat.

The recall includes 2021 Nissan Rogue SUVs and concerns seat backs with multiple part numbers, including 88650 6RC1A/B and 88650 6RD1A/B.

Recall summary  

There are two ways to secure a child seat: with seat belts or with the so-called lower anchors and tethers for children (LATCH) system. 

The recalled 2021 Nissan Rogues may have some loose car seat anchor points, referred to as “upper tether wires,” that were not welded correctly at the factory. These anchor points are used in car seats with a top tether strap, and may not hold the seat in the event of a crash.

Risks

Research by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has shown that car seats reduce fatalities by 71% for children under one year old, and by 54% for toddlers between one and four years old. In 2017 alone, car seats saved an estimated 312 lives among children under the age of five. 

If car seats are not properly secured to the car, they will not offer this level of protection. A weak anchor point might fail to hold the car seat during a crash or a sudden stop, increasing the risk of injury to the child sitting in it.

Other Nissan recalls

Over 13,000 2021 Nissan Rogues were recalled earlier this year out of concern that their trunk lids  – called liftgates in auto speak – were to separate in the event of a crash, as reported. In May, the same model year was recalled because of a potential brake fluid leak, also as reported.

Repair

Dealers will replace the seat back if necessary.  For further information about when and how to find out about the repairs, see this copy of Nissan’s owner notification letter.

Nissan recalls more than 30,000 vehicles with faulty signal bulbs

Franklin, TN – September 6, 2021 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) is recalling 30,799 cars with defective front turn signal bulbs that may fail to illuminate and show that the car is turning, increasing the risk of injury.

This recall includes the following pickup trucks and subcompact cars: 

  • 2020 Nissan Titan
  • 2021 Nissan Titan
  • 2020 Nissan Titan XD
  • 2021 Nissan Titan XD
  • 2020 Nissan Versa 
  • 2021 Nissan Versa

Recall summary  

Due to a supplier error,  the internal wiring in the affected bulbs was done incorrectly and may cause the glass surface to crack during installation. This can render both the left- and the right-turn bulb inoperable and result in the malfunction of turn signals.

The bulbs are a part of a faulty lot made by a U.S office of a French supplier Valeo Sylvania.  They have multiple part numbers, including 260605EE0A and 260105EE0A.

Risks

If the front turn signal is not working, other motorists and pedestrians will not be aware of drivers’ intentions. This increases the risk of a crash or injury.

Warning signs

The “turn signal indicator light” on the vehicle dashboard will flash faster. An audible alert will also be issued promptly to let the driver know that there is an issue. 

Other Nissan recalls

Both 2020 Nissan Titan and 2020 Titan XD vehicles were recalled at the end of 2020 because of the risk of an engine fire caused by faulty electrical wiring. In addition, some of these trucks were a part of a 127,000-car strong recall that was conducted to search for seven defective tires.

The repair

Dealers will replace the affected bulbs with new ones free of charge. Notifications were set to be sent to the owners on August 20. 

Is your vehicle a part of this recall?

This Nissan recall includes more than 30,000 of Titan and Versa vehicles. To do a Nissan recall check, please  use MotorSafety’s free vehicle lookup tool.

Nissan Rogue Sport recalled for fly-away trunk lids

Franklin, TN – September 2, 2021 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) has issued a recall for 13,215 units of the 2021 Nissan Rogue Sport over a concern that the trunk lid – called liftgate in auto-speak – may separate from the vehicle in the event of a rear-end crash.

The affected part is the liftgate hinge shaft with part number 904006MA0A.

Recall summary

A supplier manufacturing error has resulted in the reduced strength of the liftgate shaft. The liftgate shaft is the part with which the liftgate is hinged onto the vehicle. 

Risks

In the event of a rear-end crash, the liftgate may separate from the vehicle and increase the risk of injury for the occupants of the car and people around them. To read about the dangers of road debris, please refer to this article about Land Rover’s fly-away spoilers.

Other Nissan Rogue Recalls

Back in May, the 2021 Rogue compact SUVs were part of another Nissan recall for a brake fluid leak.  

The repair

Nissan recalls almost 140,000 Sentras for possible loss of steering

Franklin, TN – August 01, 2021 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) has recalled 138,736 vehicles with an issue that may result in a loss of steering and increase the risk of a crash or injury. This recall includes: 

  • 2020 Nissan Sentra
  • 2021 Nissan Sentra

The affected component is  the “inner tie rod” with part number D8521-6LB0A.

Recall summary  

A tie rod is part of the steering mechanism that connects the steering wheel to the wheels.

On vehicles that are part of this recall, both left and right tie rods may have been damaged during manufacture, making them less sturdy.  As a result, these tie rods may bend or even break apart when going over bumps and other obstacles.  

Warning signs

Depending on how severe the damage is, bent tie rods may cause the steering wheel to be “off-center” and vibrate at certain speeds. In addition, a broken tie rod would cause a significant decrease in steering response and control.

Risks

A reduction in steering response makes the vehicle less stable and responsive, which increases the chance of a crash or injury. This risk is as severe to the driver and its passengers as it is to other motorists and pedestrians. 

Safety tips

Driving with any of the symptoms that indicate an issue with the steering system is extremely unsafe. If such a situation arises, you should get your vehicle towed by an authorized towing service.

Other Nissan recalls

Nissan had recently recalled certain Nissan Murano 2020 crossover SUVs that had faulty control arms. In addition, there was a Nissan Sentra recall earlier this year for faulty brake lights.   

The 2020 Sentra is not subject to any other recalls.

The repair

To fix the issue, Nissan dealers will check both left and right tie rods  and replace them if they are bent. The repair is free of charge. Notifications will be sent to owners around August 05, 2021.

Is your vehicle part of this recall?

This Nissan recall includes almost 140,000 of their sedan vehicles. To check for this and other Nissan recalls, use MotorSafety’s free vehicle lookup tool.

Nissan recalls Armada and Infiniti QX80 over faulty fuel pump

Franklin, TN – June 3, 2021 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) has issued a recall for 24,140 Armada and Infiniti QX80 vehicles with faulty fuel pumps.  The fuel pump issues can cause the engine to stall, increasing the risk of a crash. The recall includes:

  • 2020 Nissan Armada
  • 2021 Nissan Armada
  • 2020 Infiniti QX80
  • 2021 Infiniti QX80

The recall only includes units equipped with V8 engines. The affected part is the fuel pump module; part number A7040-3ZD0B.

Recall summary

The recall stems from an issue with the impeller, which is a disc that draws fuel from the tank and directs it to the fuel pump. As a result of a supplier error, the impeller can swell and cause the fuel pump to “bind internally.”  This can disrupt the flow of fuel to the engine and result in the car stalling while driving.

There have been no incidents caused by this issue in the U.S., according to Nissan.

Risks

A fuel pump failure while driving will cause a vehicle to abruptly lose power, increasing the likelihood of being rear-ended by another vehicle.

If the system fails while the vehicle is immobile, it can prevent the engine from starting.

Warning signs and safety tips

The manufacturer says there are no warnings before a stall. However, generally speaking, a faulty fuel pump can manifest in a number of ways, such as the engine sputtering at high speeds or a drop in the gas mileage.

The “check engine” light may also come on. In case you experience any of the above signs while driving, calmly maneuver your car to the side of the road and contact roadside assistance.

Other Nissan and Infiniti recalls

Back in April, Nissan issued a recall for the 2021 Infiniti Q50 and Q60 sedans that also faced a potential stalling problem. However, that was related to a software issue and bears no connection to this recall. The Nissan Armada 2021 is not subject to any other recalls.

The repair

Dealers will replace the affected fuel pump module, free of charge. Owners will be sent a letter with more information on July 20. However, it is not clear when the repairs will be performed.

Nissan recalls 2021 Rogue SUVs for brake fluid leak

Franklin, TN – May 20, 2021 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) has recalled 14,054 vehicles that may leak brake fluid. This may cause the brakes to stop working properly, increasing the risk of a crash. It can also lead to an electrical short, upping the risk of a fire.

The recall includes 2021 Nissan Rogue compact SUVs. The components involved are the right- and left-hand brake caliper assemblies, with part numbers 44000-6RA0C and 44010-6RA0C, respectively.

Recall summary  

The recall concerns the rear brake calipers, which help clamp down on the wheels to slow the car down when braking. The calipers in the recalled cars may be missing a small part that helps make sure the brake fluid stays sealed inside the brakes. Without it, the fluid may leak out, reducing the brakes’ ability to stop the car and possibly causing an electrical short.

Warning signs

According to Nissan, a warning light would appear on the dashboard in the case of an electrical short, but would not warn drivers of weakened brakes.

Risks and safety tips

An electrical short can lead to a fire, increasing the risk of death or injury for the people involved. For tips on what to do in the event of a fire, please visit our recent article about a fire-related Hyundai recall.

For tips on what to do if your brakes fail, please refer to this article about a recent Ford Edge recall.

The repair

Nissan knows the serial numbers of the affected calipers, but not precisely which cars they were put into. To find the defective parts and see if a replacement is necessary, dealers will scan the QR code on both left and right rear brake calipers. The inspection and any replacements will be free. Owners will receive information about when and how to seek repairs starting June 10.
