Nissan recalls

 

For Models: Nissan Altima

Drive Train, October 17, 1994

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Nissan is recalling certain 1995 Altimas because the shift lever lock plate, which prevents the shift lever from being inadvertently moved from the "Park" to "Drive" or "Neutral" position, can be broken by the transmission shift position pin. This can cause vehicle movement, which may result in a crash. Dealers will install a bracket to prevent the shift position pin from breaking the shift lever lock plate.

For Models: Nissan 240SX

Brakes, August 19, 1994

Summary: THE INSTRUMENT PANEL BRAKE WARNING LIGHT WILL NOT ILLUMINATE WHEN THE BRAKE FLUID LEVEL IN THE MASTER CYLINDER DROPS SUFFICIENTLY TO ACTIVATE THE LOW LEVEL SWITCH DUE TO AN IMPROPERLY WIRED DIODE, REQUIRED BY FMVSS NO. 105, "HYDRAULIC BRAKE SYSTEMS."

For Models: Nissan Maxima

Body, Interior & Misc., March 15, 1994

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Nissan has recalled 1992-1993 Maxima models because in certain underbody impacts, the air bag sensor may activate and send a signal to the air bag, located in the center of the steering wheel, causing the driver's side air bag to inflate when it is not needed. This may result in minor injuries to the driver. A tunnel sensor of different design will be installed on affected vehicles.

For Models: Nissan Altima

Drive Train, March 11, 1994

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Nissan is recalling 1993-1994 Altimas because engine movement can be transmitted to the airflow meter/filter housing and support bracket, which can cause the throttle cable housing to pull out of the cable guide. This may prevent the throttle from returning to the idle position when the gas pedal is released, resulting in loss of throttle control that can cause an accident. Nissan will examine and repair/replace the throttle cable housing, insert a rubber stopper to maintain position for the cable, and replace the throttle assembly, if necessary.
