Japanese automaker, Nissan Motor Co., has recalled 2.2 million vehicles worldwide (including about 750,000 vehicles in the U.S.) to replace defective electrical relays for their engine control modules (ECMs) that can cause engine problems. Vehicles included in the Nissan recall are the 2004-2006 Nissan Armada, Titan and Infiniti QX56, and the 2005-2006 Nissan Frontier, Pathfinder and Xterra.

According to Nissan, silicon vapor may form inside the electrical relay that supplies power to the Engine Control Module that, over time, may cause rust to form on electrical contacts leading to engine problems, including engine stalling.
