Franklin, TN – December 7, 2022 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) is recalling 125,215 2017 Nissan Rogue crossover SUVs because of corrosion in the wiring system, which increases the risk of fire. This is an expansion of a January 2022 recall for the same issue, which at the time only affected the 2014-2016 model years.
The dash side harness is a set of wires and connectors located under the dashboard. In the affected vehicles, water and salt could collect in the area under the driver’s feet, then make their way up into the wiring harness. As a result, the wire connectors could become corroded and damaged.
The component involved in this recall is the dash side harness with multiple part numbers, including 24017-6MA0A, 24017-6MA0B, and 24017-6MA1A.
Corroded electrical connectors can cause various features to malfunction, and in rare cases could cause a fire, endangering the occupants and upping the chance of a crash.
Users may notice that the driver’s side power window or power seat has stopped working. They may also observe the AWD warning light come turn on or notice heat damage on the connector. Finally, the vehicle’s battery may run out.
Background of the recall
After the January 2022 recall, in which 688,946 2014-2016 Rogue SUVs were recalled over the same issue with the wiring harness, Nissan received a report from Transport Canada alleging the same problem in the 2017 model year. Between February and August 2022, Nissan conducted an investigation into the 2017 Nissan Rogue, culminating in the current recall.
The automaker received a total of nine complaints connected to Nissan harness connector corrosion, with no injuries or fires reported.
Other Nissan recalls
Nissan issued a recall for 27,344 vehicles in November 2022, among them the 2021 and 2022 Rogue, over the rearview camera failing to display an image when Reverse gear is engaged.
An earlier recall in January 2022 involved 24,793 2021 Rogues and centered around defective fuel pumps that could cause the vehicle to stall while in motion.
Dealers will replace damaged connectors found after conducting an inspection on affected vehicles. Lithium grease will also be applied to the connectors to prevent corrosion resulting from liquid damage.
Owners of affected vehicles will be notified on or around January 20, 2023.
