Gone Rogue: 700,000 Nissan SUVs recalled for dashboard fire risk

 Washington, D.C. — A recent report by Nissan to the NHTSA called for a voluntary recall campaign after “thermal incidents” occurred with four Rogue vehicles. Electrical connectivity issues would corrode the vehicle’s internals, potentially causing a fire.

According to the NHTSA, salt and water could enter the dashboard harness connector through the driver’s side footwell. Over time, corrosion to the connection could disable the driver’s power seat, the power window. In a worst-case scenario, battery discharge, thermal damage to the connector and full-on electrical fires can occur.

The NHTSA estimates that one percent of 2014, 2015 and 2016 Rogues may be affected by this defect, approximately 6900 vehicles.

Here are some signs that your Nissan Rogue is part of the one percent:

  • Illuminated AWD warning lights
  • Inoperative driver’s power window or power seat
  • Battery discharge
  • Burning or smoky odour
  • Smoke under the driver side dash
