Nissan has issued a recall for its Pathfinder SUV, due to a potential problem with a brake pedal switch.

The switch activates the vehicle’s brake lights, and an incorrect installation during the manufacturing process may cause the switch to malfunction.

In this instance, the brake lights will remain permanently illuminated, causing confusion and a potential hazard to other road users.

Also, the switch controls the safety locking mechanism for the automatic transmission, meaning vehicle occupants may be able to move the shifter from ‘Park’ without depressing the brake pedal.

Affected vehicles were built in May 2013, and the recall targets just three Pathfinder examples in Australia.

Nissan said there are no reported incidents arising from this problem locally, and that the recall process will involve an adjustment to the switch and fitment of a new relay.

All recall work in this instance will be carried out at no cost to owners.

Last month, Nissan recalled its Tiida small car as part of the ongoing Takata airbag recall program. For the Tiida, a total of 41,154 vehicles are affected in Australia.

Nissan will attempt to contact affected owners shortly, but any owner wishing to learn more about the latest round of recalls should contact their local dealer.
