2004 NISSAN ARMADA
Problem: SUSPENSION:FRONT:CONTROL ARM:LOWER ARM
Nissan is recalling certain front and rear lower links, p/nos. 54501zq00a, 54500zq00a, 551a1zq00a, 551a0zq00a , 54501ea00a, 54500ea00a, 551a1ea500, 551a0ea500, 54501zr00a, and 54500zr00a, sold between november 25, 2009 and may 14, 2010 as replacement parts for model year 2004 through 2010 titan, armada, and qx56, and model years 2005 through 2010 frontier, xterra, and pathfinder vehicles. The lower control link assembly has two cylindrical collars forming the inboard attachment points to the chassis. Due to an improper welding process some collars may contain welds that do not meet strength specifications.
- If the collar weld separates, the vehicle handling will deteriorate, possibly resulting in a vehicle crash.
Nissan will notify owners and dealers will replace any affected lower link free of charge. The safety recall began on july 12, 2010. Owners may contact nissan at 1-800-647-7261.2004 NISSAN ARMADA
Certain hopkins aftermarket trailer brake control connection harnesses sold for use on certain models of nissan vehicles which are listed above. The internal part numbers within hopkins are: 1010476025, 1040376025, 1110476025, 1170376025, 1290376025, 1010476035, 1040376035, 1110476035, 1170376035, and 1290376035. A wire may have been placed in an incorrect position in the electrical connector housing. This results in an incorrect routing of wires between the trailer brake controller and the towing vehicle wiring system.
- This harness would result in power from the trailer brake controller going to the towing vehicle dash light circuit rather than the trailer brakes. This result would be the lack of trailer braking when the towing vehicle brakes were applied. It would also result in the towing vehicles dash lights being activated when the vehicle brakes were applied. The failure of the application of the trailer brake could result in reduced ability to stop and contribute to a possible crash.
Hopkins will notify owners and replace the original harness with a revised harness free of charge. The recall began august 17, 2007. Owners can contact hopkins at 800-835-0129.2004 NISSAN ARMADA
Problem: ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING
Nissan is recalling certain model year 2004-2006 armada, titan, infiniti qx56 and model year 2005-2006 frontier, pathfinder and xterra vehicles. The intelligent power distribution module (ipdm) assembly contains an engine control module (ecm) relay that has a diode for electrical current noise reduction. The ecm relay may allow silicon vapor to form and, over time, the silicon evaporates from the diode molding which causes silicon oxide to develop on the ecm relay contact due to arcing.
- This could cause engine stalling increasing the risk of a crash.
Dealers will replace the ecm relay inside the ipdm assembly. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall began on december 6, 2010. Owners may contact nissan at 1-800-647-7261.
