Recall information provided by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

Component not known


00V288
Certain light duty trucks and sport utility vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 102, "Transmission Shift Lever Sequence, Starter Interlock, and Transmission Braking Effect." These vehicles could have a shift cable lock plate that is too brittle and can break. The gear shift lever and the "PRNDL" indicator may move, but the transmission will not shift out of the "Park" position. Also, the gear indicated on the display may differ from the gear engaged in the transmission. If the driver selects "Drive" and the transmission is actually in "Reverse", a vehicle crash could occur.
Dealers will replace the automatic transmission shift cable lock plate. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Nov. 6, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.

Component not known


02V298
On certain pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles equipped with a supercharger, under certain conditions, such as full throttle in low gear when the engine is not fully warmed up and at cold ambient temperature, the amount of intake airflow through the air flow meter may exceed the maximum preset diagnosis limit value. This will cause the engine control system to go into the failsafe mode. Under this condition, the malfunction indicator lamp will illuminate and engine speed will not exceed 2400 rpm regardless of the throttle position, increasing the risk of a crash.
Dealers will reprogram the electronic control module. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Jan. 13, 2003. Owners should contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.

Component not known


02V299
On certain 4-wheel drive pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles, water may enter the rear axle housing due to inadequate sealing of the anti-lock braking system (ABS) sensor. This can result in corrosion and eventual failure of the wheel bearing. If this occurs, the wheel assembly could separate from the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Dealers will inspect the rear axle for water intrusion, and all affected components will be replaced. The ABS sensor will be resealed to prevent water intrusion. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Jan. 13, 2003. Owners should contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.

On certain passenger and sport utility vehicles, the clock spring electrical connector may not be fully secured to the driver air bag module squib pin connector. If the connector comes loose, the driver air bag will not deploy in a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Dealers will install a retaining clip on the clock spring electrical connector. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin April 28, 2003. Owners may contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.
