Nissan Motor Co. is recalling 16,838 Frontier pickups in North America to fix an electrical glitch that could result to a fire, according to documents filed with the United States National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The documents showed that a circuit breaker in Frontier trucks from model years 2012-2014 may have been installed incorrectly at the carmaker’s Canton assembly site in Mississippi.

The incorrect installation of the circuit breaker could cause an electrical short and fire. According to the documents filed with NHTSA, the pickup’s power seat and sunroof functions might also be rendered inoperable by the glitch. A Nissan spokesman said there have been no reports of accidents or injuries related to the issue.

He, however, said there is one report of smoke emitted from under a dashboard on a truck in Mexico in December 2013. Of the recalled vehicles, 13,535 are in the United States, 1,930 are in Mexico and 1,373 are in Canada. Dealers are to inspect the circuit breaker wire harness and if required, are to repair free of charge. The recall is expected to commence early March, according to the NHTSA documents.
