|Certain hopkins aftermarket trailer brake control connection harnesses sold for use on certain models of nissan vehicles which are listed above. The internal part numbers within hopkins are: 1010476025, 1040376025, 1110476025, 1170376025, 1290376025, 1010476035, 1040376035, 1110476035, 1170376035, and 1290376035. A wire may have been placed in an incorrect position in the electrical connector housing. This results in an incorrect routing of wires between the trailer brake controller and the towing vehicle wiring system.
|This harness would result in power from the trailer brake controller going to the towing vehicle dash light circuit rather than the trailer brakes. This result would be the lack of trailer braking when the towing vehicle brakes were applied. It would also result in the towing vehicles dash lights being activated when the vehicle brakes were applied. The failure of the application of the trailer brake could result in reduced ability to stop and contribute to a possible crash.
|Hopkins will notify owners and replace the original harness with a revised harness free of charge. The recall began august 17, 2007. Owners can contact hopkins at 800-835-0129.
|This recall only pertains to aftermarket harnesses and has no relation to any original equipment installed on vehicles manufactured by nissan.
