On impacted vehicles, the Anti-Lock Brake actuator pump leaks fluid onto a circuit board. The indicator light on the instrument panel will remain on for 10 seconds after the engine is started.

The recall includes 2015-2017 Murano, 2016 and 2017 Maxima, 2017-2018 Pathfinder and 2017 Infiniti QX60 models, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The company believes more than half of the vehicles have the problem, The Associated Press reported.

Dealers will inspect the vehicles starting Oct. 15 and replace the part, if necessary.
