Nissan North America is recalling its 2013 Nissan NV200s due to an issue with the battery terminal fuse, which may blow, causing the vehicle to stall completely.

The 2,529 affected vehicles were built between Feb. 6, 2013 and Aug. 2, 2013, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"Due to the routing of the wiring harness that connects the fusible link to the battery fuse terminal, the wiring harness may wear through its protective covering, allowing the wires to touch the bracket that holds the fusible link," said NHTSA regarding the issue. "If the wires and the bracket make contact, a short circuit may result, causing the battery terminal fuse to blow.

No injuries or accidents have been linked to the recall, said Steve Yaeger, a Nissan spokesman, according to Edmunds.

"If the fuse blows while driving, the fuel pump will stop and cause the engine to stop running, increasing the risk of a crash," said the NHTSA.

Nissan dealers are being instructed to reposition the wiring harness and then apply a protective covering, according to the automaker.

The recall is expected to start by mid-December.
