Ottawa, Ontario – Transport Canada has issued its lastest recall, which may affect some Nissan vehicles.
2004-2006 Infiniti QX56
2004-2006 Nissan Armada
2004-2006 Nissan Titan
Vehicles affected: 4,134
Certain 2005 and 2006 model-year vehicles may have been assembled with an incorrectly manufactured air conditioning condensor fan motor, which could allow excessive water intrusion and inadequate drainage. If sufficient moisture accumulates in the motor, corrosion could occur, increasing internal friction and augmenting the electrical current draw. This could cause an increase in the motor’s operating temperature that could eventually melt its wiring insulation and other plastic components and form a gas. If two uninsulated wires touch and create a spark, the gas could ignite resulting in a vehicle fire. Dealers will affect repairs.
Note: Some 2004 and some 2005 model-year vehicles are equipped with a different fan motor that is not subject to this campaign. However, it is possible that a limited number of these vehicles may have received the subject condensor fan as a service replacement part and so are being included in this action.
