Occupant Classification System Reprogramming Seatbelt Buckle Bracket Installation – 2013-2016 Nissan Sentra

NHTSA

16V242

SUMMARY:

Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) is recalling certain model year 2013-2016 Sentra vehicles manufactured June 13, 2012, to April 14, 2016.

The front passenger seat belt bracket may become deformed if it is used to secure a Child Restraint System (CRS).

The deformed seat bracket may cause the Occupant Classification System (OCS) to incorrectly classify the installed CRS, resulting in the front passenger air bag to not be turned off as designed when a CRS is in the seat.

 

CONSEQUENCE:

If the frontal passenger air bag deploys in the event of a crash when a child seat is installed in the front passenger seat, there will be an increased risk of injury to the child in the CRS.

 

REMEDY:

Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will reinforce the seat belt bracket as well as reprogram the Air Bag Control Unit (ACU) and OCS Electronic Control Unit (ECU), free of charge.

The remedy is not yet available. Owners will be mailed an interim notification by the end of June 2016 and will be sent a second letter when the remedy is available.

Owners are warned not to install a CRS in the front seat.

Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-867-7669.

 

NOTES:

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
