Nissan Recalls 91K Trucks for Electrical Issues
July 19, 2019—Nissan has issued a recall for 91,319 units of the 2017-19 Titan pickup truck, according to a report by CNET.
All the vehicles included in the recall are light-duty models with gasoline engines. The affected vehicles carry build dates between April 14, 2016 and Oct. 8, 2018.
The issue mainly deals with the alternator's wiring harness. Alternator harnesses might have been damaged during installation. When eventually lowering the engine into the truck, the harness might get pulled away from its intended location, potentially breaching the wiring's shielding.
This could cause an electrical short, resulting in what Nissan calls "abnormal electrical activity," which means the interior lights might flicker, for example. Since this affects the alternator's wiring, it could prevent the truck's battery from charging.
