California car owners may wish to know that Nissan has issued a recall of 2013 Nissan NV200s because of a problem with the battery terminal fuse, which could explode, resulting in the vehicle stopping completely. The recall affects 2,529 vehicles that were manufactured between Feb. 6 and Aug. 2, 2013. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that the protective covering of the wiring to the battery fuse could deteriorate. If the wires touch the bracket that holds the fusible link, the car could short-circuit, which could cause the battery terminal fuse to blow.
According to a Nissan spokesman, the problem has not resulted in any known injuries or car accidents. However, the NHTSA explained that if someone is driving when the fuse blows, the fuel pump will shut down and the engine will stop, which could cause an accident.
