Approximately 91,300 model-year 2017-19 Nissan Titan gasoline light-duty pickup trucks are being recalled due to alternator issues. The alternator harness may have been damaged during engine installation and could cause an electrical short. This could cause the engine to stall as well as abnormal electrical activity in the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash or a fire.
Nissan began notifying owners on July 23. Owners can call the automaker at 800-867-7669 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will inspect the alternator harness for proper routing and possible damage. The harness will be clipped into the correct position or replaced as necessary.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
