Nissan Recalls 2004-2006 Maximas Due to Misrouted Seat Wire Harness

Body, Interior & Misc., January 16, 2006

RepairPal Expert Overview

Summary:

Nissan has recalled 2004-2006 Maxima models equipped with the driver preferred package because the wire harness from the driver's seat power lumbar support switch may be routed incorrectly, which can cause it to pinch under the driver's seat. A pinched harness, in combination with driving vibration, may result in a short circuit in the harness that could lead to a fire in the seat. Dealers will replace the wire harness and route it correctly.
