A massive recall at Nissan and Infiniti--the automaker's third-largest recall ever--affects nearly 750,000 vehicles sold in the U.S.

Nissan says the 2004-2006 Nissan Armada pickup and Titan sport-utility vehicle, as well as the same-year models of the Infiniti QX56, are being recalled for an issue with potential vehicle stalling. The recall also will include the 2005-2006 Nissan Frontier, Pathfinder and Xterra.

In affected vehicles, vaporization of silicon could cause the voltage going to the vehicles' engine control module to fluctuate, causing a stall.

Almost 2.2 million vehicles worldwide are included in the service action. Nissan will replace the voltage relay to solve the problem on affected vehicles.

All of the vehicles in question were manufactured in the U.S. The Armada, Titan and Infiniti models were built in Canton, Mississippi; the remainder were manufactured in Smyrna, Tennessee.
