215,000 Nissan and Infiniti Vehicles Recalled for Fire Risk

2016 Nissan Maxima;

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 215,000 model-year 2015-17 Nissan Murano SUVs, model-year 2016-17 Maxima sedans, model-year 2017-18 Pathfinder SUVs, and model-year 2017 Infiniti QX60 SUVs

The Problem: The antilock brake actuator pumps may allow brake fluid to leak onto an internal circuit board, which may result in an electrical short, increasing the risk of a fire.

The Fix: When brake fluid has leaked onto the circuit board, the ABS warning lamp will remain illuminated for more than 10 seconds after engine startup. If this occurs, owners should park the vehicle outdoors away from other vehicles or structures, and not drive it.

Dealers will inspect the serial number on the ABS actuator, replacing it, as necessary, for free.

What Owners Should Do: Nissan, which also manufactures Infiniti vehicles, will begin notifying owners on Oct. 15. Owners can call Nissan at 800-867-7669, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
