What are the defects?

Due to potentially incorrect installation of some of the stop lamp switches at the point of assembly, the stop lamp switch on some of the affected vehicles may malfunction over time and cause the stop lamps to remain illuminated when the brakes are not being applied. This condition could also negate the brake-shift interlock function.

What are the hazards?

Movement of the gear selector out of ‘Park’ position, or starting of the engine, without depressing the brake pedal could pose an accident hazard.

What should consumers do?

Owners of vehicles within the affected VIN range will be advised to contact their Nissan Dealer to arrange for adjustment of the stop lamp switch and replacement of the stop lamp relay. The rectification will be at no cost to owners.
