2016 Nissan Sentra Recalled For Stalling Risk

WASHINGTON — Nissan North America is recalling 1,522 2016 Nissan Sentra compact sedans because of a stalling risk, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"The engine-room harness may have a terminal pin too large to maintain a connection with the Engine Control Unit," said NHTSA in its recall summary. "If the engine-room harness loses connection to the ECU, the vehicle may not start or the engine may stall, increasing the risk of a crash."

A stop-sale was ordered on the affected cars until they can be repaired.

No injuries or crashes have been linked to the recall, Nissan spokesman Steve Yaeger told Edmunds.

Nissan told federal safety regulators the problem is due to a supplier error that has since been corrected.

"Owners may drive the vehicle at their discretion," Nissan said in a document filed with NHTSA. "However, if the vehicle is subject to the recall, owners should make arrangements to have the vehicle repaired as soon as possible."

Parts are not immediately available, but Nissan said a rental is covered while the parts are on order.

Nissan dealers will replace the terminal pin on the engine-room harness. The recall is expected to begin by August 26. Owners can contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.

Edmunds says: Nissan dealers can help with any concerns in this recall. Owners should stay in close touch with their dealers as parts become available.
