2005 Nissan Titan Owner Comments

problem #7

Jan 012007


  • 30,000 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Nissan Titan. The contact stated that the air bags failed and the air bag warning indicator remained illuminated. The vehicle was repaired per NHTSA campaign number: 06V459000 (electrical system); however; the repair did not correct the failure. The dealer diagnosed that the air bag wire was loose, but the wire repair did not correct the failure. The dealer diagnosed the vehicle again and determined that the air bag wiring harness assembly needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified. The failure mileage was 30,000.

Nissan previously issued a recall dealing with the wiring harness issue, #06V459000 to reroute and change the wiring cover. This affects the airbags and the operation of the seat belts, as well as the audio system. The airbag light is flashing and the rear passenger door speaker doesn't work. The recall was just a temporary cover up of the problem. The issue came up again and they refuse to fix it, wanting to charge upwards of $1000 to replace the wiring harnesss, a problem they are already aware of. The recall did not fix the problem, only a temporary cover-up.

Titan 8-cyl

  • 65,000 miles
I received a recall notice (recall 06V-459) from Nissan approximately 4 years ago regarding the wiring harness being defective. The original notice did not mention that it would require service only if the airbag light was on or flashing (which it was not). I brought my vehicle in for the recall (at kelly Nissan of lynnfield MA), not knowing this and they simply taped the wiring harnesses after inspection and recorded the recall serviced on the Nissan Titan and most likely charged Nissan of North America for parts and labor for a harness replacement. At 65,000 miles I started to get the airbag sensor light on my dashboard flashing constantly. I researched the flashing code from the sensor and it turns out to be related to the passenger side wiring harness. As recently as 2 weeks ago I received what I thought was another recall notice from Nissan of North America which clearly stated this time " if the red airbag warning lamp is illuminated - please contact your dealership immediately for repairs", after scheduling another appointment with the same dealership that did the original recall and bringing the vehicle in they told me that the recall had already been done and the was no other action that could be performed without a charge to me. The vehicle has never been in an accident as I am the original owner. I find it difficult to believe that if a vehicle has a recall and parts are replaced that the same failure will occur with the replaced parts, hence my conclusion that the actual work was never performed only recorded as such against the vehicles (VIN). Any help you could provide would be appreciated. [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

I own a 2005 Nissan Titan king cab, which I purchased it in November of 2005. After, approximately 30days of ownership and 500 miles of travel; the front brakes began to experience complications (they would shudder while braking and create an unreasonable amount of brake dust.) I quickly return to my local dealership where I purchased it, for servicing. The Nissan dealership repaired the rotors. During the summer of 2006, I began to notice a musty odor emitting from the floor and carpeting of the passenger side. During a routine oil change and requested the mechanic to inspect the truck for the cause of the odor. They couldn't locate the source of the odor. I returned the truck to the dealership for the same problem on several other occasions, during the summer of 2007 odor reappeared; they replaced the rubber gasket around door windows in hopes of resolving the issue. Meanwhile the front brakes rotors were replaced again and the gauges (fuel, oil, tach, voltmeter) acting erratically. The dealership repaired the brakes under my extended warranty & prorated my purchase of a new Nissan auto battery; according to service dept. This was the cause of the gauges malfunction. Then again IN2008, I was told the brakes were no longer under warranty and that the musty odor was caused by water coming into the cabin via a small void in the window sealant around the "factory installed windshield┐ upon hearing this, I chose to take my truck to another mechanic due to Nissan mechanic inability to resolve the brake issue & locate the source of the water. This year 2009, the rear end was repaired due the seals leaking on the driver's side and preventive replacement on the passenger seals. However, a few old issues along with new ones that still exist. My new mechanic told me the source of the water & odor issue is the A/C condenser leaking into the cabin, the blinking air bag indicator light was due to a harness needing replacing in the rear doors.

My husband was in an accident and the airbags on our 2005 Nissan Titan () did not deploy in spite on the whole front of the truck being smashed in. I have contacted Nissan several times and they will not call me back.
