Nissan Australia has announced the proposed international recall from last week has reached Australian shores and is now in place. It affects the Nissan Tiida C11, Nissan Navara D40 and the Nissan Pathfinder R51 sold between March 30, 2004 and June 28, 2006.
The issue due to a potentially faulty ignition connection which, in worst case scenarios, could cause the engine to stall and not restart again. More specifically, the fault could be due to the operation of the intelligent power distribution module (IPDM) relay which could become affected by a build up of silicon oxide residue.
Nissan has announced it will contact owners of the cars through the mail asking them to take their car to a Nissan dealer to have the relay replaced free of charge. The company also says if customers are unsure if their vehicle is affected by the recall, or if they would like any further information they should contact the Customer Assistance Centre on 1800 035 035.
