Nissan North America Inc. is recalling 18,880 2012-2013 model-year Nissan NV vans because the gear position indicator might mistakenly display that the vehicle is in the “park” position when it isn’t, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

To resolve the problem, Nissan dealers will correct the installation of the transmission lever gear selector plate lock clip. There will be no charge for this service.

The vans covered by this recall were all manufactured from Dec. 20, 2010, through Jan. 4, 2013, and are equipped with steering column-mounted transmission shift levers. 

The recall is expected to begin on April 8. Vehicle owners can reach Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.
