alternator recall information needed

Hi Everyone. I was browsing the forums for troubleshooting my 2006 Murano. When I found out that the Brake light with the Batt Light was a indication my alternator was on it's last leg. Sure enough, the test showed that my battery was at a 8% charge and my alternator was at 11V and <30amps.

I was wondering if there was ever a recall for this part. It is pretty late and my local dealer is closed for remodeling. If you guys could give me some insight, it would really help me out with scheduling next week out.

Thanks everyone.

Welcome to the forum.

Yes there was a recall for the MO's alternator, however it was for 2003-2005 MOs. The 2006 MO was not affected.

out of curiosity did this recall ever make it to Canada? Or was it a US only recall?

I recently purchased a 2004 Nissan Murano. I've had it 2 months and I was driving it one day and while at a stoplight when I went to press the gas the car would not move. I couldn't reverse or go forward. I figured I'd shut it off and restart it. Well needless to say it didn't start back up. Earlier in the day I had smelled something burning when I had started it but figured rain on the tailpipe was what I was smelling. Well it seemed it was my alternator I was smelling. I've seen recalls for the 2004 Murano but I'm wondering if it's still in effect since it's now 2012. Can someone help tell me how I'd find out if the recall affects me? Thanks for any help!

Welcome to the forum.

Contact Nissan Consumer Affairs @ 800-647-7261, give them your VIN and they can tell you if the recall was ever performed on your MO.

Go to 2004 Nissan Murano Service Recalls/Campaigns - Nissanhelp.com. Register for free and then you can download the pdf. Here is some of the info from it:

If your vehicle is one of these and your alternator is original, Nissan should replace it for free. GOOD LUCK!

FYI - I bought an '84 300ZX in 97 and the fuel injectors were going bad. Turns out there was a recall on them - Nissan replace them and everything that broke in the replacement process for free under the recall. She ran like a dream after all that.

As suggested, I called the consumer affairs # yesterday to find out info on recalls for my newly acquired '04 Mo. After registering my vin # they informed me of 4 recalls for that year. One was the alternator. They showed the previous owner had completed all 4 recalls. Eased my mind a bit.

Thanks to this forum I was able to learn how to check out my new Mo.
