APPLIED VEHICLES: 2018 – 2019 Versa Sedan (N17)


Check Service COMM or Dealer Business Systems (DBS)  National Service History to confirm campaign eligibility.



Nissan is conducting this voluntary recall campaign on certain specific model year  2018-2019 Versa Sedan vehicles to reprogram the Audio/AV Control Unit. This service will be performed at no charge to the customer for parts or labor.



Nissan has assigned identification number R1911 to this campaign. This number must appear on all communication and documentation of any nature dealing with this campaign.



It is the dealer’s responsibility to check Service COMM or Dealer Business Systems (DBS) National Service History for the campaign status on each vehicle falling within the range of this voluntary recall which for any reason enters the service department. This includes vehicles purchased from private parties or presented by transient (tourist) owners and vehicles in a dealer’s inventory.  Federal law requires that new vehicles in dealer inventory which are the subject of a recall must be corrected prior to sale. Failure to do so can result in civil penalties by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.  While federal law applies only to new vehicles, Nissan strongly encourages dealers to correct any used vehicles in their inventory before they are retailed.




  • Special tool USB drives have been shipped to each dealer: J-52812-7, J-52812-8, and J-51812-15.


  • Additional USB drives are available from TechMate: nissantechmate.com or 1-800662-2001.
