The airbag system uses a sensor in the front passenger seat to detect if the seat is occupied by an adult. The affected vehicles are being recalled because this sensor, part of the occupant classification system (OCS), may incorrectly identify the passenger seat as empty when it is actually occupied by an adult. When the passenger seat is determined to be empty, the passenger airbag is disabled. Failure of the passenger airbag to properly deploy when necessary would increase the risk of injury to someone seated in the passenger seat in the event of an accident. Dealers will update the OCS software to correct this concern.
These trucks are being recalled because an electrical circuit breaker may have been incorrectly installed behind the lower left portion of the dashboard. As a result, a bolt may wear through the wire harness covering causing an electrical short circuit. This could result in a fire. Dealers will inspect and repair the wire harness and circuit breaker as necessary to correct this concern.
The vehicle weight rating as listed on the vehicle certification label is misprinted to a weight too large for the vehicle to carry. Nissan will provide a new label to replace the incorrect one free of charge to resolve the concern.
These vehicles are being recalled because a software concern with the antilock brake system (ABS) could cause the brake system to perform less efficiently than expected during light brake pedal application on rough roads. The resulting increased stopping distance would increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will reprogram the ABS to correct this concern.
The tear seam on the back side of the instrument panel on the passenger side that allows the passenger air bag to deploy may not be cut properly. Dealers will replace the affected instrument panel assemblies free of charge to resolve the concern.
The brake master cylinder provides the hydraulic pressure to operate the braking system. Certain vehicles are being recalled because the brake master cylinder may intermittently reduce the pressure supplied to the front brakes. This could result in increased stopping distance, increasing the risk of a crash, Dealers will replace the master cylinder on affected vehicles to correct this concern.
The lower body sill bolts may not be torqued properly. Dealers will install and tighten bolts as needed free of charge to resolve the concern.
The rear seat latch bolts may be weak and could fracture in an accident. Dealers will replace the rear seat latch bolts free of charge to resolve the concern.
If the tires are not at the correct pressure while the vehicle is driven tire failure may result. These vehicles are being recalled because the spare tire may not have had the correct air pressure at the time of vehicle assembly. If the spare tire is used with the incorrect air pressure it could fail, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers with check and adjust the air pressure in the spare tire to correct this concern.
Airbags use a chemical reaction contained in an inflator module to create the pressure necessary to inflate the bags when deployment is required. These vehicles are being recalled because the front passenger airbag inflator may produce excessive internal pressure when deployed. As a result, the inflator module could rupture, causing metal fragments to strike vehicle occupants. Dealers will inspect and replace any defective passenger front airbag inflator modules found.
