Nissan recall: Nearly 700K Nissan Rogues recalled over fire hazard


The Nissan Rogue is one of the Japanese automaker’s best-selling vehicles. Nissan and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) have issued a recall of nearly 700,000 Nissan Rogue vehicles from the 2014-2016 model year.

The recall according to the official NHTSA recall notice, has to do with corrosion in the electrical connector that can result in power window/seat failure, all-wheel-drive warning light illumination, battery drainage, and electrical connector damage that increases the risk of a fire.

There was a previous recall issued on 2016-2017 Rogues for insufficient seat welds. But let’s look at this latest recall.

About the defect

To know if your vehicle is impacted, NHTSA recommends keeping an eye for the following symptoms:

  • Driver’s power window or power seat inoperative
  • AWD warning light illuminated
  • Battery discharge
  • Burning odor
  • Smoke under the driver side dash

Furthermore, in affected vehicles, if water and salt collect in the driver’s side foot well, it may wick up the dash side harness tape and enter the connector. If the connector becomes corroded, electrical current may continue to flow between the connector terminals, potentially causing the driver’s power seat or power window to become inoperative, AWD warning light illumination, battery discharge and thermal damage to the connector. In the worst case condition, a fire can occur.

Nissan Rogue recall and remedy

The official NHTSA campaign number to reference is 22V024000 and it impacts as many as 688,946 units.

The remedy for this is currently being developed and coordinated with the automaker and dealers. In the meantime, notification letters informing owners of the safety risk are expected to be mailed March 2, 2022. A second notice will be mailed once the remedy becomes available.

Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-867-7669. Nissan’s number for this recall is R21B9. You can also search by VIN on the NHTSA website.

The bottom line on Nissan Rogue recall

Recalls happen to every manufacturer. It’s always good when they address these issues head on with transparency. By all accounts there are no known fires as a result of this, and the Nissan Rogue recall deals with merely the “threat of a fire.”
