The contact owns a 2002 Nissan Altima. Initially, the rear seat belts on both sides of the vehicle would not release on an intermittent basis. Currently, they do not work at all. The dealer has not yet been notified. The front driver and passenger side headlamps dim on their own; however, the instrument control panel show them as being activated. NHTSA campaign id number 073054000 (exterior lighting:headlights) was referenced. The contact received a ticket due to the headlamp failure. The current mileage was 96,791 and failure mileage was 95,000.
