Nissan Recalls Sentra Because Brake Lights Might Not Illuminate
More than 800,000 vehicles to get new brake light switch and protective component
Nissan Sentra models from the 2016 to 2019 model years are being recalled because the car’s rear brake lights may become inoperative because of contamination from grease used in other nearby components.
There is a risk of a rear-end crash if the brake lights don’t illuminate.
Vehicles recalled: 2016 to 2019 Nissan Sentra vehicles.
The problem: The brake lights might not illuminate.
The fix: Dealerships will replace the brake light switch and install a protective grommet (an eyelet), free of charge.
How to contact the manufacturer: Nissan customer service can be reached at 800-867-7769.
NHTSA campaign number: 21V-135. Nissan’s reference number for this recall is PM971.
Check to see whether your vehicle has an open recall: NHTSA’s website will tell you whether your vehicle has any recalls that need to be addressed.
If you plug your car’s 17-digit vehicle identification number (VIN) into NHTSA’s website and a recall doesn’t appear, it means your vehicle doesn’t currently have one. Because automakers issue recalls often, and for many older vehicles, we recommend checking back regularly.
