May 6, 1985 VOLUNTARY RECALL CAMPAIGN 1984 PULSAR NX AND 300ZX HEADLIGHT SWITCH AUTHORIZATION Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. Tokyo, Japan authorizes Nissan Motor Corporation in U.S.A. (NMC) to conduct a recall campaign on 1984 Nissan Pulsar NX and 300ZX model vehicles. INTRODUCTION There is a possibility that one or more of the headlights may not work because contaminated grease was used in the headlight switch. The malfunction of the switch could cause a delay or failure in the operation of one or more lights when the headlight switch is turned on or the dimmer switch is operated. Loss of headlight function could increase the risk of a vehicle collision. All owners of the affected vehicles will be notified by letter to bring their vehicle to a Nissan/Datsun dealer for a free inspection and if necessary, replacement of the headlight switch. A copy of the owner's letter is shown on page 8/10 for your information.
