The contact referenced NHTSA campaign id number 10V074000 (fuel system, other ); however, the VIN was not included in the recall. The manufacturer was notified of the failure.

Titan 4WD 9-cyl

  • 58,000 miles


I own a 2005 Nissan Titan. There is a safety recall NHTSA 10V074000 for a defective fuel gauge sending unit. The recall notice states; the instrument panel fuel gauge may inaccurately display that the vehicle still has some fuel, typically about one quarter tank, when the fuel tank is empty. My truck has precisely that problem, I have run out of gas on the road several times when the gauge shows 1/4 full. I set up an appointment for this recall and when I arrvied I was told I did not qualify. I called Nissan today and again was told I do not qualify though they could not tell me what VIN's or manufacturing dates qualify. I believe that since my truck exhibits the problem described in the recall, my vehicle should qualify for replacement of the fuel sender unit.

Titan 6-cyl

  • 57,000 miles
My 05 Nissan Titan fuel gauge reads that I have a quarter of a tank left when I run out of gas. I have been told this is due to a faulty sending unit in the gas tank. This is disturbing because if I were to run out of gas on the highway or my wife has my truck and runs out of gas, the power steering shuts off when the truck dies from no fuel. This could cause a collision and result in serious injury or death. This is not a chance I am wanting to take with the lives of my family. This item has been recalled on other Nissan Titans, but when I called about mine it was said that it is not covered under the recall. I would like to make it known that the 2005 Nissan Titan crew cab SE 4 wd..VIN number [xxx]...also has this problem and should be included in this recall. And the recall id # 49063 is for the fuel gauge system recall. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

The dealer advised him to bring the vehicle in and they also stated that it is better for the gauge to be high than low. The current mileage was 54,000 and failure mileage was 53,000.
