Recall 15V032000

Potential Electrical Fire

Recall Details

A mixture of snow/water and salt can seep through the interior carpet on the drivers side resulting in an electrical short in a wiring harness connector under the carpet. If left unchecked this could lead to a fire. Dealers will inspect the kick panel wiring harness connector and if necessary install a new harness connector and waterproof seal free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

An electrical short may develop underneath the interior carpet on the driver's side of the vehicle, due to moisture and salt seeping through the carpet. This could result in a vehicle fire. 

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Nissan must be performed by a Nissan dealership. Nissan began notifying known owners of affected vehicles beginning in 2015. If you did not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Nissan dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
