Note: Not all vehicles in the above range are included.

The recall campaign is due to commence in October 2013 (subject to parts availability).

What are the defects?

Nissan has identified that due to lateral load on the accelerator pedal, the contact pressure of the sensor brush to a terminal on the circuit board of the subject sensor may deteriorate. As a result, the engine Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) will illuminate, and the vehicle could go into the fail-safe mode, which would cause the accelerator operation control to limit vehicle acceleration.

In extreme cases when the engine is idling or the vehicle is coming to a halt, air intake may become insufficient and the engine may stop running.

What are the hazards?

A sudden loss or reduction in power may pose a hazard to the vehicle occupants and other road users.
