Nissan Frontier Pickup Recalled for Fire Risk

Nissan Frontier Pickup Recalled for Fire Risk

Nissan is recalling about 13,535 Frontier pickup trucks over concerns that an electrical short circuit may cause a fire. 

The issue is a circuit breaker that may have been installed incorrectly, allowing a wire harness to potentially contact a metal bolt on the A-pillar. This bolt can wear through the harness, potentially leading to a short circuit which can cause a fire. Power to the seats and sunroof can also cut out as a result of the problem.

The problem affects model year 2012 through 2014 trucks, and Nissan has said that it knows of no accidents or injuries as a result of this problem. Nissan will contact owners and fix the issue, free of charge.
