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