WASHINGTON — Nissan North America is recalling 2,529 2013 Nissan NV200s because the battery terminal fuse may blow, causing the vehicle to stall, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"Due to the routing of the wiring harness that connects the fusible link to the battery fuse terminal, the wiring harness may wear through its protective covering, allowing the wires to touch the bracket that holds the fusible link," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "If the wires and the bracket make contact, a short circuit may result, causing the battery terminal fuse to blow.

"If the fuse blows while driving, the fuel pump will stop and cause the engine to stop running, increasing the risk of a crash."

The affected NV200s were built from February 6, 2013 through August 2, 2013.

No accidents or injuries have been linked to the recall, said Steve Yaeger, a Nissan spokesman, in response to an Edmunds query.

Nissan dealers will reposition the wiring harness and apply a protective covering. The recall is expected to begin in mid-December. Owners can contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.

Edmunds says: This recall will begin shortly, so if you own one of the aforementioned NV200s, it's best to get it into your dealership as soon as you receive your official notice.
