Nissan is recalling 2.2 million vehicles worldwide, which includes 747,000 pickups and SUVs in the United States due to a risk of failure to the electrical systems. Nissan said that the recall includes model year 2004 to 2006 Nissan Armadas and Titans, 2005 and 2006 Infiniti QX56 models along with Nissan Frontiers, Pathfinders and Xterras from August 2003 and June 2006

To fix the issue, Nissan said that it needs to replace the electrical relays in the engine control modules, the computer that controls engine performance and other essential motor components.

Nissan said that in some cases the engine may stall.

“Silicon vapor may form inside the electrical relay that supplies voltage to the engine control module,” Nissan said. “Over time, this vapor could create oxidation on the electrical contacts in the relay that may lead to engine performance issues, including the possibility of stalling at low engine speeds.”
