Vehicles Affected: Approximately 394,000 model-year 2015-18 Nissan Murano SUVs; model year-2016-18 Nissan Maxima sedans; and model-year 2017-19 Nissan Pathfinder and Infiniti QX60 SUVs
The Problem: These vehicles were previously recalled and unrepaired, or inspected and determined to not need a repair. In addition, this recall expands the previous population. The antilock brake system 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.
Infiniti manufacturer Nissan notes that if the ABS warning light remains illuminated for more than 10 seconds after engine startup, owners should park the vehicle outdoors away from other vehicles or structures and not drive it.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the ABS actuator for free.
What Owners Should Do: Nissan will send owners interim notices beginning Dec. 2; owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available, currently expected to be in the summer of 2020. Owners can call Nissan at 800-867-7669, Infiniti at 800-662-6200, 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.
