For the second time in just over half a year, Nissan is issuing a sizable recall for its Rogue compact SUV. The culprit in the automaker’s latest safety missive is a defective electrical connector susceptible to corrosion from water and salt that could lead to a fire.

Affected vehicles include more than 688,900 model-year 2014-16 Rogues. To get more detailed, the electrical connector for the under-dash harness may corrode due to water and salt intrusion from the driver-side footwell. Such corrosion can result in power window or seat failure, illumination of the all-wheel-drive warning light, battery drainage and damage to the electrical connector that could increase the risk of a fire.

Nissan is still developing a remedy, but interim owner-notification letters will be mailed March 2 and a second letter will follow once a remedy has been found. Those with questions can call the automaker 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.
