Nissan has recalled nearly 240,000 cars and SUVs worldwide due to a fire risk. And in some cases they are advising people to park the vehicles outdoors.
An anti-lock brake pump can leak brake fluid onto a circuit board, causing an electrical short and increasing the fire risk, according to the company. If drivers see the anti-lock brake warning lamp for more than 10 seconds after starting the engine, Nissan urges them not to drive the vehicles and park them outdoors.
The recall covers certain 2015 to 2017 Nissan Murano, 2016 and 2017 Nissan Maxima, 2017 through 2018 Nissan Pathfinder and 2017 Infiniti QX60 vehicles. Nissan estimates 56% of the vehicles have this problem, which has been traced to faulty seals in the pump.
