Report Receipt Date: FEB 12, 2014
NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V052000
Component(s):
Potential Number of Units Affected: 13,535
Manufacturer: Nissan North America, Inc.

SUMMARY
Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) is recalling certain model year 2012 through 2014 Frontier vehicles manufactured from November 28, 2012, through December 17, 2013. In the affected vehicles, a circuit breaker may have been installed incorrectly causing the main wire harness connected to the circuit breaker to face outward, potentially contacting a metal bolt located on the A-pillar.


CONSEQUENCE
The bolt may wear through the wire harness covering, resulting in an electrical short which could cause a fire.

REMEDY
Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the circuit breaker orientation. If the circuit breaker orientation is incorrect, dealers will repair the vehicles free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in early March 2014. Owners may contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.

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.
