Nissan Recalls Trucks and SUVs for Electrical System Failure
Atlanta 10/29/2010 02:11 AM GMT (WooEB)
Nissan issued a worldwide recall Thursday for 2.2 million vehicles. The company says the vehicles are at risk for failure of the electrical systems, which may cause the engine to stall.
"Silicon vapor may form inside the electrical relay that supplies voltage to the engine control module. Over time, this vapor could create oxidation on the electrical contacts in the relay that may lead to engine performance issues, including the possibility of stalling at low engine speeds,” Nissan said.
The recall includes 747,000 trucks and SUVs in the United States and 23,000 in Canada. Vehicles included in the North American recall are: 2004 to 2006 Nissan Armadas and Titans, 2005 to 2006 Infiniti QX56, and August 2003 to June 2006 Nissan Frontiers, Patherfinders and Xterras.
There have been no accidents related to the problem.
