According to the owner it sat idling outside while he went to collect some stuff in the house. He also said he had noticed a weird smell while driving previously, but at the time he thought it was from outside the truck somewhere :-(

Now I'm getting paranoid; I have smelled what could be electrical insulation smoldering a few times in my truck (also a 2006). I'd take it to the dealer, but I'm sure I'll get the standard answer: "First time we ever heard of this"

On the different boards, about 3 times. OK, so maybe a dealer wouldn't have heard of it... :teeth:

But even if it had been reported 200 times, and a TSB had been issued, they would still use that line. I have learned to bring in printed proof of TSB's or even recalls, saves a lot of time with the service writer :)

here is an email i received from Bruce York U.S. Department Of Transportation National Highway Traffic Safety Admin. Office of Defects Investigation:

Joe,



We have not had or do not have any investigation related to fires on any model year Nissan Titan Vehicles. We also do not have any Technical Service Bulletins related to fires on these vehicles. NHTSA is aware of one recall announced by Nissan related to wires short circuiting in the rear doors. Perhaps your fire is related to that recall. I have attached a copy of the recall for your reference.

Thank You,

Bruce York

so my problem can't be all that widespread... yet:paranoid:

electrical fires are flukes, unfortunately they happen. A chipmonk could have nested in the firewall or some leaves got in there... could have been anything.

Also looks like the airbag blew out the windshield. Hate to see a poor TITAN go up in smoke.

I think it's important to understand, that these are rare incidents!!
Some people are just trying to make themselves feel better, after flaming others, about similar situations, by posting things like this. I think it's sad!! Those kind of people are two faced!!
