NHTSA safety recall results (65)

Recall information provided by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

Component not known


02V043
On certain passenger vehicles equipped with an electronic throttle control system, the stopper for the accelerator pedal will prevent excessive movement of the accelerator position sensor. If the driver applies overly excessive force to the accelerator pedal while at the same time pushing it to the right, the pedal can "over travel" due to the design of the pedal stopper. This will cause the engine malfunction indicator lamp to come on and the engine speed to be severely limited. If this occurs unexpectedly, it could lead to a crash.
Dealers will install a new accelerator pedal stopper. The manufacturer reported that owner notification was expected to begin during April 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261 or Infiniti at 1-800-662-6200.

Dealers will replace the transverse links on the left and right sides with new ones. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began June 24, 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.

00V410
Certain passenger vehicles may have an ignition lock assembly with improperly seated key cylinder cap connector pins. Vibration can cause the connecting pins to loosen and/or fall out, allowing the key cylinder cap to disengage from the key cylinder. If this occurs, the steering wheel lock rod can move and lock the steering wheel.
Dealers will inspect the ignition lock assembly and assemblies with loose or missing end cap connector pins will be replaced. A ring clip will be installed on all others to prevent loosening of the pins. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Dec. 22, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.

Component not known


03V476
On certain sport utility vehicles, the front brake caliper mounting bolts may not be adequately tightened. This could result in one or both of the caliper mounting bolts loosening. If this occurs, it would allow the caliper to rotate or separate from its mounting bracket. This could cause the brake to fail, reducing the vehicle's ability to stop. It could also damage the wheel, causing the tire to go flat. Either one of these conditions could result in a crash.
Dealers will tighten the front brake caliper mounting bolts to ensure that they are secure. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during January 2004. Owners may contact Infiniti at 1-800-662- 6200.

Component not known


02V245
On certain passenger vehicles, the fuel hose connection for the outlet of the fuel pump, which is located at the top of the fuel tank, may not have been properly attached when the vehicle was assembled and could come loose while driving or when starting the engine. If the connection comes loose while driving, the engine will stop running due to lack of fuel, increasing the risk of a crash. Also, if the connection comes loose while driving or attempting to start or restart the engine, some fuel will discharge from the fuel pump. If this should occur in the presence of an ignition source, a fire could result.
Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, properly attach the fuel hose to the fuel pump. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Oct. 7, 2002. Owners should contact Nissan at 1-800-662-6200.
