What are the defects?

A concern affecting the intelligent power distribution module (IPDM) relay has been identified. There is a possibility that the ignition relay contacts in the IPDM may become contaminated with a build up of silicon oxide due to silicon evaporating from the relay diode. This can lead to poor conduction at the relay contacts.

What are the hazards?

In the extreme case, the resulting poor contact can potentially result in the engine stalling and failure to restart the vehicle.

What should consumers do?

Nissan will shortly mail directly to the owners of affected vehicles advising them to return the vehicle to a Nissan dealer to have the relay replaced free of charge with a counter-measure part. In the meantime, should any consumers experience difficulties, they can contact a Nissan dealer or our Customer Assistance Centre on 1800 035 035.
