2013-2015 Nissan Pathfinder NHTSA announced on Monday that a three-row SUV has been recalled due to a relay switch issue that could leave the brake lights on even when the driver is not braking.
The recall includes 267,276 pathfinders in the United States. This is an extension of the previous recall limited to the 2013 model, but even models repaired with the recall 16V-380 will need to be brought to the dealer for repair again.
The stop lamp switch relays on the brake pedals can deteriorate over time, especially in vehicles with frequent stop-and-go driving where the brake pedals are continuously pressed. Deterioration can cause the switch to stay in the “on” position. This can have one of the following effects: Insufficient output or engine output limitation due to brake override. Brake light continuous lighting; Ability to shift the Pathfinder out of the “park” without pressing the brake pedal. Alternatively, you can start the engine without pressing the brake pedal.
The continuous lighting of the brake lights confuses other drivers and increases the risk of collision when the affected vehicle actually begins to brake. Brake overrides that prevent the driver from accelerating normally can also cause a crash, as other drivers may expect the Pathfinder to work properly in traffic. Removing the vehicle from the “park” without pressing the brakes increases the risk of the vehicle rolling down and injuring.
