The Pulsar hatch is affected by both potential faults.

Owners of the latest Nissan Pulsar sedan and hatch can expect a letter from Nissan asking them to return their car to a Nissan dealership so two potential faults can be rectified.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission say the satellite sensor for the side curtain air-bag may not have been installed correctly in some Nissan Pulsar vehicles.

This fault, in what they say would be extremely rare cases, could prevent the curtain air-bag from deploying correctly.

That recall affects the sedan and hatchback variants, the hatch though is also being recalled to replace a stop lamp switch.

The ACCC say an incorrect specification stop lamp switch was installed in some Nissan Pulsar vehicles fitted with CVT automatic transmission.

In extremely rare cases, the rear stop lamps may not work due to stop lamp switch failure, though the brakes will continue to function as normal.

Owners of affected vehicles are being contacted directly by Nissan.
