***** Campaign Summary *****

Nissan is committed to the safety and security of our customers and their passengers. Nissan has notified the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that it is conducting a Voluntary Safety Recall Campaign on a limited number of MY2013-15 Nissan Altima, MY2015-16 Nissan Rogue, and MY2016 Nissan Maxima vehicles to replace the Occupant Classification System (OCS) Electronic Control Unit (ECU) with a new unit.

Due to supplier labelling error that has since been corrected, an incorrect OCS ECU module may have been installed in the front passenger seat of some of the affected vehicles, resulting in the incorrect pairing of ECU-to-seat. With this configuration, the OCS may not perform as designed due to software incompatibility and may not classify a seated front passenger seat occupant correctly. This could cause the passenger airbag to not deploy as designed in a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

Owners of affected vehicles will be notified within sixty (60) days asking them to bring their vehicle to an authorized Nissan retailer to have their vehicle’s OCS ECU replaced.

 

***** What Dealers Should Do**** 

  1. Verify if vehicles are affected by these Voluntary Safety Recall Campaigns using the following Service Comm I.Ds:
    • PC523 – Altima and Maxima
    • PC526 – Rogue
      • New vehicles in dealer inventory can be also be identified using DCS (Sales-> Vehicle Inventory, and filter by Open Campaign).
        • Refer to NPSB 15-460 for additional information
Note: If a vehicle is affected by both R1609 and PC523 or PC526 and the R1609 remedy has not yet been performed, campaign PC523 or PC526 should be performed first.

 

  1. Dealers should not sell, lease, trade, rent or loan any vehicles in dealer inventory affected by this recall campaign until after the vehicle has been repaired.
  1. Dealers will use the procedure included with this announcement to replace the OCS control unit with the correct service part and reprogram with the latest OCS software.
  1. If a retailed vehicle affected by these campaign ID visits the dealer for service, the dealer should inform the customer about the recall campaign and communicate that parts may need to be ordered. Rental is covered under the campaign if parts need to be ordered.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):

 

Q. Is this a safety recall? 

A. Yes, a Stop Sale is in effect.

 

Q. What is the reason for safety recall? 

A. Due to supplier labelling error that has since been corrected, an incorrect OCS ECU module may have been installed in the front passenger seat of some of the affected vehicles, resulting in the incorrect pairing of ECU-to-seat.

 

Q. What is the possible effect of the condition?

Q. How long will the corrective action take?

A. The remedy should take less than one (1) hour to complete. However, the Nissan dealer may require a longer period of time based upon their work schedule. All services will be provided at no cost to the customer for parts and labor.

 

Q. When will vehicle owners be notified?

A. Nissan will begin notifying owners of all potentially affected vehicles within sixty (60) days via U.S. Mail. Owners will be asked to bring their vehicle to an authorized Nissan dealer to have the Occupant Classification System (OCS) Electronic Control Unit (ECU) replaced and reprogrammed.

J2534-1 Re/Programming

 


Tutorial for Purchasing NERS Software

Software updated April 26, 2019 to version # 04.03.00. It is recommended the latest version of NERS be installed before connecting to a vehicle.

This NERS software supports reprogrammable Engine and Transmission control units from 1999 to 2019 model year vehicles, and 2005 MY and later VIN writing into ECUs, when using a Nissan validated pass-through device. Click the Reprogramming Tab for additional information on reprogramming. This software only provides ECU reprogramming, blank programming and VIN writing capability. It does not provide diagnostic or key programming capability. For Engine and Transmission control unit reprogramming and VIN writing capability on 2020 MY & newer, please use CONSULT-III plus or CONSULT-III plus R2R software.

Vehicle reprogramming requires the use of the following:

  • Nissan validated J2534-1 device
  • Nissan ECU Reprogramming Software (NERS)
  • Personal computer running Windows XP (SP2 or later) or Windows 7 or 10 64Bit
  • Applicable reprogram file

 

Nissan tested and validated the below listed devices. Nissan does not recommend the use of any other J2534-1 device not listed here.
