Renault Commercial Roumanie has notified the National Authority for Consumer Protection (ANPC) about starting a campaign to recall in service Nissan’s Maxima, Pulsar, Juke, Qashqai and X-Trail.
“As part of the continuous tracking process of vehicles’ quality, Nissan has identified possible incident at the verification system of oxygen sensor. (…) Nissan has identified that, in case of probe’s failure by short-circuiting, no warning light does not illuminate in the dashboard. In this situation, it is likely that that legal regulations are not met,” the car maker’s notification sent to its customers and ANPC reads.
The drivers of 96 cars thus are advised to contact a.s.o.p. an authorized service by Nissan Romania network, to check and repair the vehicle.
The repair will last up to 30 minutes for making a software updating of the injection computer.
The oxygen sensor in the vehicle measures the oxygen levels in the exhaust gases exiting the engine. This information is used by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) to determine the correct air to fuel ratio for the engine in real time. The sensor is located in the exhaust system and allows the fuel injection and engine timing to work efficiently, which assists with emissions control. The oxygen sensor transmits the data to the vehicle’s PCM to maintain the optimal air to fuel ratio for the engine.
A bad or failing oxygen sensor will have a negative impact on environmental emissions and engine performance.
