Recall 16V485000

Wiring To Engine Control Unit Has Faulty Connection

Recall Details

The wiring terminal pin fit at the engine control unit (ECU) may not be secure. Dealers will replace the terminal pin on the engine room harness free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

Wiring that connects to the engine control unit (ECU) may not fit properly, and not maintain a secure connection. This can lead to vehicle stalling, or the inability to start the engine. This can increase risk of a crash.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Nissan must be performed by a Nissan dealership. Nissan will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in August, 2016. If you do 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.
