Nissan North America is recalling 1,522 2016 model-year Sentra cars because of potential stalling tied to the engine control unit connection, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The recall, expected to begin by Aug. 26, covers Sentra vehicles manufactured April 11-26 of this year. The engine room harness may have a terminal pin too large to maintain a connection with the engine control unit (ECU).
“If the engine room harness loses connection to the ECU, the vehicle may not start or the engine may stall, increasing the risk of a crash,” NHTSA said on its website.
Nissan dealers will replace the terminal pin on the engine room harness, free of charge, to address the problem. Vehicle owners can reach Nissan customer service at (800) 647-7261.
