Nissan North America has issued a recall of 215,124 vehicles in the US due to an anti-lock brake pump defect that might increase the chances of an unprecedented fire. According to the recall notice that was issued by the company, certain models of the 2015-17 Nissan Murano, 2016-17 Nissan Maxima, 2017-18 Nissan Pathfinder and Infiniti QX60 have been put out for recall in the country.

The company claims that the seal on the anti-lock brake setup might leak the oil onto the circuit board that car creates an electrical short circuit.

Additionally, Nissan has also asked its customers to park their vehicles on the road and away from other vehicles or structures that might aggravate the situation in case of a fire. Apart from the USA, 19,761 more vehicles have been recalled in Canada, Nissan Canada said.

“If this occurs, an ABS warning lamp will continuously illuminate on the instrument panel to warn the driver,” the report says. As a remedial measure, the company stated that the brake pump of the subjected vehicles will be replaced by it. As of now, no deaths or injuries have been reported due to the problem, Nissan spokesman Steve Yaeger wrote in an email to Automotive News.
