854,000 Nissan Sentras recalled to fix brake light issues

Nissan says it is unaware of the collisions and injuries caused by the problem.

Detroit — Nissan is recalling more than 854,000 cars in the United States and Canada because the brake lights may not turn on when the driver pedals.

The recall targets certain Sentra compacts for 2016-2019 models, including more than 807,000 in the United States.

Nissan states that silicone contamination from grease used in nearby components can cause oxidation and cause the stop lamp switch near the brake pedal to malfunction. In that case, the stop lamp may not light and the engine may not start. In the event of a condition, the owner may see a malfunction indicator light on the dashboard.

Nissan says it is unaware of the collisions and injuries caused by the problem.

The owner will receive a temporary repair letter in April and will instruct them to schedule a service reservation in the event of a problem. When enough parts are available in the fall, a second letter will be sent telling all owners to book the service. The dealer replaces the switch and adds a protective grommet.
