2016-2019 Sentra Stop Lamp Switch Recall
What is the reason for the recall?

The stop lamp switch on the subject vehicles may become contaminated with silicon off-gassing from silicon-based grease used in surrounding components (HVAC and brake booster clevis pin) in close proximity. Oxidation may occur at the switch contact surface due to electric arcing, resulting in silicon dioxide build-up. This build-up may lead to open circuit issues and an inoperative stop lamp switch.

What is the possible effect of the condition?

If this condition occurs, the customer may notice illumination of an Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) or Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) warning lamp(s), the rear stop lamps may not illuminate and/or the engine may not start/crank. Rear stop lamps not illuminating could potentially increase the risk of a crash.

How long will the corrective action take?

This free service should take up to one (1) hour to complete but your Nissan dealer may require your vehicle for a longer period of time based upon their work schedule.

Is my vehicle safe to drive?

The customer may continue to drive the vehicle unless the following conditions occur:
• Illuminated Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) or Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) warning lamp(s)
• Intermittent or current no-start/crank condition
• Intermittent or current inoperative brake lights

If any of the conditions do apply, please contact your local Nissan dealer for immediate service and instructions on how to transport your vehicle to the dealership. Rental is available under the campaign while parts are on order.

Will I have to take my vehicle back to the selling dealer to have the service performed?

No, any authorized Nissan dealer is able to perform the recall campaign.
