SMYRNA, Tenn. — Nissan North America Inc. is recalling 215,124 vehicles in the U.S. over an antilock brake pump defect that may increase the risk of a fire.
The recall affects certain 2015-17 Nissan Muranos, 2016-17 Nissan Maximas, 2017-18 Nissan Pathfinders and 2017 Infiniti QX60s, according to the safety recall report. The auto maker is advising owners to park their vehicles outdoors and away from other vehicles or structures.
The recall covers another 19,761 vehicles in Canada, Nissan Canada said.
The seal on the antilock brake pump may leak brake fluid onto the circuit board, which could create an electrical short and, in "rare" cases, may lead to a fire, the report says.
"If this occurs, an ABS warning lamp will continuously illuminate on the instrument panel to warn the driver," the report says.
Dealerships will inspect the serial number of the ABS actuator on affected vehicles, and if it falls within a specified range, they will replace the brake pump, the report says.
No deaths or injuries linked to the recall have been reported to the auto maker, Nissan spokesman Steve Yaeger wrote in an email to Automotive News.
