The Hazard!

Nissan has identified that a limited range of 2016 production year R52 Pathfinder vehicles may have been manufactured with an Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) actuator with an oil seal that may leak brake fluid internally. If the brake fluid leaks, an ABS warning lamp will illuminate to warn the driver. If the vehicle continues to be operated in this condition, the brake fluid leak may create an electrical short in the actuator circuit, which in rare cases could potentially lead to a fire.

What to do...

New Zealand owners of the affected vehicles will be contacted by direct mail at the end of February 2019 and advised to contact a Nissan dealer to arrange for the inspection and if necessary replacement of the ABS control unit. The rectification will be at no cost to owners with regards to the parts and labour.
