Nissan is recalling certain 2016 Frontier V6 trucks because of a potential electrical short that increases the risk of fire. On the affected vehicles, the starter motor wire harness may have been installed in an incorrect position, as a result of an assembly error by a new operator at a work station at Nissan’s plant in Canton, Mississippi. In vehicles that were assembled incorrectly, the starter harness terminal may contact the starter heat shield, which could cause an electrical short that poses a fire risk.
A total of 1,554 vehicles are included in this recall. Nissan will notify owners, dealers will inspect and reposition the starter wire harness, as necessary, free of charge.
