Nissan is conducting a safety campaign on certain 2016 Nissan Sentra and Leaf vehicles to inspect the passenger side airbag module and main body harness. Due to a supplier error, the front passenger airbag wiring harness connector cylinder may have been manufactured out of specification. The wiring harness connector could disconnect from the airbag module completely.
- If the connector becomes fully disengaged, a warning lamp will illuminate but the airbag will not deploy in a crash where it is designed to deploy.
- If the connector becomes partially disengaged, a warning lamp may not illuminate.
In the event of a crash, the first stage may deploy, but the second stage may not deploy as designed. This may increase the risk of injury to the front seat occupant in a crash where the front passenger airbag is designed to deploy.
Those receiving notices will be asked to return to their dealerships to have the air bag module and main body harness inspected and replaced as necessary. Owners wanting more information about the problem are asked to contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261. The NHTSA campaign number for this recall is 16V-436.
