2006 Nissan Frontier ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING NHTSA Campaign #10V517000
Summary: Nissan is recalling certain model year 2004-2006 armada, titan, infiniti QX56 and model year 2005-2006 Frontier, pathfinder and xterra vehicles. The intelligent power distribution module (ipdm) assembly contains an engine control module (ECM) relay that has a diode for electrical current noise reduction. The ECM relay may allow silicon vapor to form and, over time, the silicon evaporates from the diode molding which causes silicon oxide to develop on the ECM relay contact due to arcing.
Consequence: This could cause engine stalling increasing the risk of a crash.
Actions: Dealers will replace the ECM relay inside the ipdm assembly. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall began on December 6, 2010. Owners may contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #10V517000 »
2006 Nissan Frontier SUSPENSION:FRONT:CONTROL ARM:LOWER ARM NHTSA Campaign #10E019000
Summary: Nissan is recalling certain front and rear lower links, P/nos. 54501zq00A, 54500zq00A, 551A1zq00A, 551A0zq00A, 54501ea00A, 54500ea00A, 551A1ea500, 551A0ea500, 54501zr00A, and 54500zr00A, sold between November 25, 2009 and May 14, 2010 as replacement parts for model year 2004 through 2010 titan, armada, and QX56, and model years 2005 through 2010 Frontier, xterra, and pathfinder vehicles. The lower control link assembly has two cylindrical collars forming the inboard attachment points to the chassis. Due to an improper welding process some collars may contain welds that do not meet strength specifications.
Consequence: If the collar weld separates, the vehicle handling will deteriorate, possibly resulting in a vehicle crash.
Actions: Nissan will notify owners and dealers will replace any affected lower link free of charge. The safety recall began on July 12, 2010. Owners may contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #10E019000 »
2006 Nissan Frontier FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:STORAGE:AUXILLARY TANK NHTSA Campaign #10V075000
Summary: Nissan is recalling certain model year 2006 and model year 2008 Frontier, xterra and pathfinder vehicles. The molded fuel tank shells can deform, causing the fuel sender float arm to contact an embossment molded into the tank shell causing the instrument panel fuel gauge to show that the vehicle has approximately one quarter tank when the fuel tank is empty.
Consequence: This could cause the vehicle to run out of gas and stall in traffic, increasing the risk of a crash.
Actions: Dealers will replace the fuel level sending unit inside the fuel tank with a new one that has a modified float arm. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or before March 22, 2010. Owners may contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #10V075000 »
2006 Nissan Frontier AIR BAGS:FRONTAL NHTSA Campaign #08V690000
Summary: Nissan is recalling 242,720 MY 2005-2009 pathfinder, Frontier and xterra vehicles originally sold in or currently registered in the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and the District of Columbia. In those areas of the country which use heavy concentrations of road salt in the winter, a mixture of snow/water and salt can enter into the front crash zone sensor (czs) housing. If this occurs, the czs may internally rust resulting in a signal interruption. If this happens, the red air bag warning light will illuminate to alert the vehicle operator.
Consequence: This issue could result in the non-deployment of the driver and passenger front air bags in a crash, increasing the risk of personal injury.
Actions: Dealers will replace the front czs with a redesigned sensor. The recall began on January 26, 2009. Owners in the other states will receive extended warranty coverage for the sensor to 10 years. These owners will be notified of the warranty extension by mail and will receive a sticker to place in their warranty booklet explaining the extended warranty coverage. Owners may contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #08V690000 »
2006 Nissan Frontier EQUIPMENT NHTSA Campaign #07E046000
Summary: Certain hopkins aftermarket trailer brake control connection harnesses sold for use on certain models of Nissan vehicles which are listed above. The internal part numbers within hopkins are: 1010476025, 1040376025, 1110476025, 1170376025, 1290376025, 1010476035, 1040376035, 1110476035, 1170376035, and 1290376035. A wire may have been placed in an incorrect position in the electrical connector housing. This results in an incorrect routing of wires between the trailer brake controller and the towing vehicle wiring system.
Consequence: This harness would result in power from the trailer brake controller going to the towing vehicle dash light circuit rather than the trailer brakes. This result would be the lack of trailer braking when the towing vehicle brakes were applied. It would also result in the towing vehicles dash lights being activated when the vehicle brakes were applied. The failure of the application of the trailer brake could result in reduced ability to stop and contribute to a possible crash.
Actions: Hopkins will notify owners and replace the original harness with a revised harness free of charge. The recall began August 17, 2007. Owners can contact hopkins at 800-835-0129. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #07E046000 »
2006 Nissan Frontier EXTERIOR LIGHTING NHTSA Campaign #06E064000
Summary: Certain tradesonic combination lamps sold as replacement lamps for use on the above listed passenger vehicles. Combination lamps not equipped with amber side reflectors fail to conform with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 108, lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment.
Consequence: Lack of amber side reflectors in the lamps will decrease lighting visibility to other drivers and may possibly result in a vehicle crash.
Actions: Tradesonic will notify owners and replace the lamps free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during July 2006. Owners may contact tradesonic at 626-934-8884. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #06E064000 »
2006 Nissan Frontier FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:STORAGE:TANK ASSEMBLY:FILLER PIPE AND CAP NHTSA Campaign #06V092000
Summary: On certain king cab trucks, in a severe side impact crash, there is a possibility that deformation of the vehicle's body could cause the fuel filler cap tether to be stretched to the point of unscrewing the fuel filler cap.
Consequence: This may result in a fuel spill which in the presence of an ignition source could result in a fire.
Actions: Dealers will replace the fuel cap tether pin assembly with a modified one free of charge. The recall began on April 24, 2006. Owners may contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #06V092000 »
