The documents said a circuit breaker in
mid-sized trucks from model years 2012 through 2014 may have
been installed incorrectly at an assembly plant in Canton,
Mississippi, potentially causing an electrical short and fire.
The power seat and sunroof functions might also be rendered
inoperable, according to documents filed with the U.S. National
Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
A Nissan spokesman said there have been no reports of accidents
or injuries related to the issue, but one report of smoke coming
from under a dashboard on a truck in Mexico in December.
Of the affected vehicles, 13,535 are in the United States, 1,930
are in Mexico and 1,373 are in Canada, the spokesman said.
Dealers will inspect the circuit breaker wire harness and repair
free of charge if needed. The recall is expected to begin in
early March, according to the NHTSA documents.
