Issue: When the car is parked in very cold temperatures for a long time, a relay in the brake system may freeze.

If this happens, multiple brake warnings will stay on in the instrument cluster after the car is started.

The driver may also notice a hard brake pedal.

If the car is driven, this could cause an increase in stopping distance.

Safety Risk: An increase in stopping distance could create the risk of a crash.

Corrective Actions: The company will mail owners a letter explaining this problem.

The letter will describe how the brake warnings work.

Drivers should not to drive the car if the warnings stay on.

Nissan will provide a 4 year/80,000 km warranty extension to repair the problem with relay freezing.
