Nissan Motor Co. is recalling more than 240,000 trucks in New Jersey and 19 other cold weather states to fix a problem that could prevent front air bags from deploying in a crash. The government said in a posting on its Web site Wednesday that the recall affects the Frontier, Pathfinder and Xterra for the 2005-2009 model years.

In states where winter time road salt is used, a mix of snow and salt could enter a crash zone sensor area and rust, interrupting the signal and potentially preventing the front air bags from deploying in a crash.

Nissan spokesman Colin Price says the problem was discovered through warranty claims and there had been no crashes or injuries linked to the issue.
