Nissan is recalling more than 230,000 cars and SUVs worldwide due to a fire risk stemming from and leak. Nissan fears that an anti-lock brake pump can leak fluid onto a circuit board causing an electrical shortage. This shortage can increase the risk of fire. The recall covers certain 2015 to 2017 Nissan Murano, 2016 and 2017 Nissan Maxima, 2017 through 2018 Nissan Pathfinder and 2017 Infiniti QX60 vehicles.
If you own any of these vehicles being recalled and see the anti-lock brake warning lamp for more than 10 seconds after starting your car, Nissan urges you not to drive the vehicle. The company encourages owners to park affected vehicles outdoors and away from structures and other vehicles. The spokesman for Nissan says there have been no reported fires or injuries related to this problem. Starting October 15th, Nissan dealers will begin inspecting the pumps and replace them if necessary.
