*****Dealer Announcement*****

Nissan is reclassifying the previously announced quality action (under the same campaign ID) as a Voluntary Safety Recall to inspect the generator harness on certain Titan (A61) half-ton trim level vehicles, VK56 Engine only.  Due to a manufacturing issue that has since been corrected, certain vehicles may have had the engine sub-harness damaged during the assembly process.  As a result, an electrical short may occur and may cause the customer to experience abnormal electrical activity (intermittent radio, flickering lights, battery discharge, etc.).  In rare cases, the short may result in an engine compartment thermal incident.

 

*****What Dealers Should Do***** 

  1. Verify if vehicles are affected by this Voluntary Safety Recall using Service Comm or DBS National Service History – Open Campaigns I.D. PC673
    • New vehicles in dealer inventory can also be identified using DBS (Sales-> Vehicle Inventory, and filter by Open Campaign).

  1. Dealers must not sell, lease, trade, rent, or loan any vehicles in dealer inventory affected by this recall campaign until the vehicle has been inspected and, if necessary, repaired.
  1. Dealers should use NTB19-053 to inspect and, if necessary, remedy any vehicles subject to this campaign.
  1. Upon completion of the inspection, and if necessary repair, the service department should submit the applicable warranty claim for the action performed so it can be closed on SERVICE COMM.
