Nissan Calls For Over 394,000 Sedans And SUVs In The US For Fire Risk | On Board

Nissan recently announced a call for review for 394,025 vehicles sold in the United States with the purpose of solving a failure in the anti-lock brake pump that could cause a fire.

According to the manufacturer, a seal of the anti-lock brake pump could deteriorate and at the same time filter fluid on a circuit board, which could cause an electrical short and consequently a fire.

Due to a similar fault, some of these vehicles were called for review in 2018, but no leak was found, the technicians did not carry out any repairs. This time, however, dealers will replace the anti-lock brake pumps of all units involved.

In the event that the light on the dashboard that corresponds to the anti-lock braking system remains on for more than 10 seconds, Nissan asks the owners not to drive the vehicles and rather to park them outdoors away from other cars and real estate.
