2008 Nissan Altima Hybrid AIR BAGS, ELECTRICAL SYSTEM: SOFTWARE NHTSA Campaign #08V521000
Summary: Nissan is recalling 204,361 MY 2007-2008 Altima, Altima hybrid, 350Z, 350Z roadster, MY 2008 Altima coupe, rogue, MY 2009 murano, and infiniti MY 2007-2008 G35 sedan, MY 2008 G37 coupe and EX35 passenger vehicles equipped with Continental automotive systems' occupant classification system (OCS) control units. A varistor in the OCS control unit located in the passenger seat cushion may have been manufactured out of specification. Under certain conditions, this could cause an interruption of signal between the OCS and the air bag control unit (acu).
Consequence: This could result in the passenger air bag being suppressed which could fail to provide adequate protection in the event of a crash.
Actions: Dealers will test the signal between the OCS and acu systems using a special tool to check that it is functioning as designed. If necessary, the seat cushion (containing OCS hardware) will be replaced with a new one manufactured to specification. The recall began on November 4, 2008. Owners may contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261 or infiniti at 1-800-662-6200. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #08V521000 »
