TOKYO — Nissan Motor Co. says two vehicle plants that halted production because of a delay in part shipments from Europe will operate Thursday while plans for Friday are undecided.

Nissan spokesman Toshitake Inoshita said today that Japan’s No. 3 automaker will resume output at the two Japanese plants by using auto parts in the company’s stockpiles.

Nissan suspended output at the plants Wednesday because shipments from Ireland of air pressure sensors for tires were delayed by the disruption to international air travel from Iceland’s volcanic eruption.

Nissan said it has yet to decide on production plans from Friday.
