Models: Infiniti Q45 Years: 1991-1992
Number Involved: 28,970
Dates of Manufacture: June 1990 - June 1992
Defect: This recall involves passenger vehicles equipped with Bose rear speakers with an integral amplifier. A conductive bridge can form between two lines of the circuit board pattern when there is electrolyte leaked from a capacitor and high humidity conditions. This can close a transistor on the circuit board and result in overheating. This condition can result in smoke or flame and possibly the rear speakers catching fire.
Remedy: Dealers will replace the circuit board with a new board that has been coated. Owner notification is expected to begin during January 1999. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Nissan at 1-800-NISSAN1 (1-800-647-7261).
