Nissan recalls more Rogue SUVs over wiring corrosion, fire risk

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.

Recall summary

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.  

Recall risks

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.  

Warning signs

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.

The repair

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.

Nissan recalls SUVs over loss of power brake assist

Franklin, TN – August 28, 2022 – Subaru (OTCMKTS:NSANY) is issuing a recall for 5,904 SUVs because their brake boosters may not work properly, increasing the risk of an accident.

The recall includes the following vehicles:

  • 2017 Rogue Hybrid
  • 2018 Rogue Hybrid
  • 2019 Rogue Hybrid

Recall summary

The hydraulic brake booster serves to boost the brakes’ stopping power, helping the vehicle to stop faster in an emergency situation. This is done through the force of a vacuum pump, which sucks all the air out of the brake booster to make it more efficient. 

In the affected vehicles, the effectiveness of the motor used by the brake booster may be reduced due to friction from using the brakes repeatedly or high temperatures generated by the engine. This situation can cause the “loss of power brake assist.”

The component involved in this recall is the hydraulic brake booster assembly with part number 47210 4BC8A. 

Recall risks

The worn out booster would require more effort from the driver to press the brake pedal. This could lead to the vehicle needing a longer distance to slow down or stop, potentially increasing the risk of a crash. 

Warning signs

Drivers will notice the red brake system warning indicator lighting up on the dashboard, accompanied by a buzzing sound. 

Other Nissan Rogue recalls 

The 2020-2021 Nissan Rogues were part of another Nissan recall earlier this month due to a rearview camera defect, as reported.  

There was a Nissan Rogue hybrid recall in November 2021 due to a problem with the engine harness which could cause the vehicles to lose power and stall unexpectedly.

Repair

The remedy is currently under development. Affected owners will receive letters with more information on or around September 22, 2022. 

All repairs will be free of charge and Nissan will reimburse the owners who already paid to have their vehicles repaired due to this issue.

Nissan recalls SUVs with fly-open hoods

Franklin, TN – July 2, 2022 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) is recalling 322,671 2013–2016 Nissan Pathfinder SUVs whose hoods may fly open while driving. This obstructs the driver’s field of view, increasing the risk of a crash and injury.

This recall follows on the heels of a U.S. government investigation.

Recall summary

The hood on a vehicle is held shut by two mechanisms: the primary latch, which is released when the driver pulls the lever inside the cabin, and the secondary (safety) latch, which is manually released under the front edge of the hood. 

On vehicles affected by this Nissan Pathfinder recall, dust and dirt from the road may create buildup inside the secondary locking mechanism. If that happens, the mechanism may jam in an open position. While the hood will remain securely closed, nothing will stop it from flying open if the driver accidentally pulls the primary latch release lever while driving

Background of the recall

These hood latch issues were investigated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in December 2021, as reported.

The 2014-2016 Pathfinder Hybrids are also subject to the same investigation, which is still ongoing.

Recall risks

In addition to significantly limiting visibility, a suddenly opening hood may startle the driver. This could lead to a crash, increasing the risk of an injury. 

Other Nissan recalls

A Nissan recall from October 2021 addressed software-related stalling and included Murano, Pathfinder and Infiniti QX60 vehicles.

In January 2022, Nissan recalled a large number of Rogue SUVs over a risk of fire caused by wiring issues, as reported.

The repair

At this time, the manufacturer is still working on a solution. As a first step, 40,000 owners will be asked to bring their SUVs to a dealer that will inspect the latch assembly and replace it if necessary. Nissan will collect the faulty components for examination. Owners of these vehicles will receive notifications on or after June 30, 2022.

The remaining owners will receive instructions on how to inspect the secondary latch. If a problem is found, owners can visit a dealer for inspection and replacement. Notifications about this temporary solution will be sent by August 3, 2022. 

Lastly, all owners of affected vehicles will be notified once the final remedy is ready.

Nissan recalls over 500,000 Rogue SUVs over fire risk

Franklin, TN – January 30, 2022 –  Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) is recalling 688,946 SUVs that may catch fire because of an electrical issue, increasing the risk of a crash and injury. The recall affects 2014 – 2016 Nissan Rogue SUVs. 

Recall summary  

All recalled vehicles listed here have a wiring harness – which is a bundle of wires with electrical connectors – under their floor carpets on the driver side. 

One of the connectors may not be sealed properly, allowing water and moisture to get in contact with bare wiring. This causes the connectors to corrode. The corrosion, in turn, increases the chance of an electrical short and fire and may negatively affect the operation of the driver-side window and seat. The issue may also result in “battery drainage.”

The component in question is the “Secondary Dash Side Harness” with multiple part numbers including 24014-4BA0A and 24014-5HK1E. 

Recall risks

Malfunctioning seats and windows or the smoke within the vehicle may distract the driver. 

A fire greatly increases the risk of injury or even death for the occupants of the car, as well as potentially other motorists. For tips on what to do if there is a fire, please visit the following page.  

Warning signs 

In addition to malfunctioning driver-side window and door, the driver may also notice the AWD sign come on. If there is an electrical short or a fire, the driver or passengers may notice smoke and a burning smell inside the vehicle. 

Other Nissan Rogue recalls 

Apart from these Nissan Rogue electrical issues, there were no other recent recalls that were affecting vehicles from this list.  However, the 2021 Nissan Rogue was recalled five times last year. The two recent recalls were caused by unsecured child seats in September and an overheating fuel pump which may cause the car to stall in December, as reported.

The repair

At this time, Nissan has not yet come up with a solution to the problem, although it is expected to be “available in spring 2022”.  All repairs will be done free of charge and owners who paid for theirs out-of-pocket will be reimbursed.

Nissan recalls Rogue SUVs that may stall

Franklin, TN – January 1, 2022 – Nissan (OTCMKTS:NSANY) is recalling 24,793 2021 Nissan Rogue SUVs whose fuel pumps may fail. This may cause the vehicle to stall, increasing the risk of a crash and injury. 

Recall summary  

A fuel pump is an electrical component inside the fuel tank that transfers the gasoline towards the engine.  As a result of incorrect assembly by a supplier, the pump may overheat and stop working. When that happens, the engine may stall and will not restart as if the car were out of gasoline.

The component in question is the Fuel Pump Assembly, with part number 17040 6RE0A for two-wheel drive (2WD) vehicles and 17040 6RE1A for four-wheel drive (4WD) vehicles.

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.

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.

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.
