The starter motor wire harness may have been installed in an incorrect position, allowing the starter harness terminal to contact the heat shield and result in an electrical short.
An electrical short increases the risk of a fire.
Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and reposition the starter wire harness, as necessary, free of charge.
The recall began on April 13, 2016.
