The 2016 Nissan Sentra

Nissan recalls over 1,500 Sentras in the US due to possible engine stalls

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced it has received notification of a recall from Nissan North America for its Sentra compact sedan for the US market.

According to NHTSA, “the engine-room harness may have a terminal pin too large to maintain a connection with the Engine Control Unit (ECU). If the engine-room harness loses connection to the ECU, the vehicle may not start or the engine may stall.”

The recall applies to 1,522 units of the 2016 Sentra sold in the US that were produced between mid- to late-April of this year.

Nissan North America will be contacting the owners of these vehicles and the terminal pin for the engine-room harness will be replaced at its dealerships.
