Anti-lock Brake System Malfunctions Causing Loss Of Vehicle Stability

Recall Details

The anti-lock braking system actuators may have contamination inside the solenoid valves, causing malfunction of the system. Dealers will inspect and replace the actuator as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

An actuator in the anti-lock braking system may malfunction, causing activation of the anti-lock braking system when unintended.  This could result in the loss of vehicle control.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Nissan must be performed by a Nissan dealership. Nissan notified owners of affected vehicles in August, 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.

Summary
Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) is recalling certain model year 2015 Murano vehicles manufactured December 4, 2014, to March 17, 2015. These vehicles are equipped with Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) actuators which may have contamination in the solenoid valves, potentially affecting the valves' ability to completely close and allow a build up of hydraulic brake pressure, or fully open and allow the hydraulic brake pressure to completely drop.
Consequence
Under some driving conditions, when the ABS is activated, the malfunctioning ABS actuator could cause a loss of vehicle stability, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy
Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the ABS actuator, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by early August 2015. Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.
Notify
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
