  1. 2005 Nissan Altima ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING NHTSA Campaign #07V527000

    • Date Announced: NOVEMBER 14, 2007
    • Vehicles Affected: 653,910

    Summary: On certain passenger vehicles equipped with a 2.5L engine, the crankshaft position sensor can overheat causing a brief interruption in the signal output from the sensor.

    Consequence: If the interruption in the signal from the crankshaft position sensor is so brief that the electronic control module (ECM) logic does not have time to diagnose the condition, the engine may stop running without warning while the vehicle is driven at a low speed increasing the risk of a crash.

    Actions: Dealers will reprogram the ECM free of charge. Certain MY 2006 Altima which have been previously remedied under recall campaign 06V223 (Nissan R0606) are not included in this recall since the reprogramming for 06V223 also included this reprogramming. The recall began on December 31, 2007. Owners may contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #07V527000 »
