Recalls on Nissan Rogue SUVs due to wiring corrosion

Over 120,000 units of 2017 Nissan Rogue crossover SUVs are being recalled due to a potential fire hazard caused by corrosion in the vehicle’s electrical system. The original recall for this problem was issued in January of 2022, however, it only covered the models from 2014–2016.

Corroded electrical connectors are to blame for the recall as they can lead to a number of different problems, including the possibility of a fire that could harm the passengers and increase the likelihood of a collision.

This bundle of wires and plugs is known as the “dash side harness” and can be found beneath the panelling in your vehicle’s cabin. The concerned vehicles may have a problem where moisture and salt from the floorboard might seep up into the control module and electrical system. There is a risk that the wire connectors will rust and break.

Recalled is the dash side harness with part codes 24017-6MA0A, 24017-6MA0B, and 24017-6MA1A.

Owners of impacted vehicles will be contacted throughout January 2023. After inspecting impacted vehicles, dealers will repair or replace any faulty connectors. The connectors will also be treated with lithium grease to protect them against corrosion caused by liquid damage.

How to tell if your Nissan Rogue is at risk?

The power windows or seat controls on the driver’s side stop working, the all-wheel-drive warning light comes on, or there is heat damage on the connector. There is always the chance that the car’s battery will die.

No injuries or fires were reported, however, Nissan did get nine complaints about harness connector corrosion. As for the 2017 models, Transport Canada also allegedly reported the same issue to Nissan. The current recall results from an investigation into the 2017 Nissan Rogue undertaken by Nissan between February and August 2022.
