A Jazz de Havilland Dash 8-100, registration C-GJIG performing flight QK-8988 from Ottawa,ON to Montreal,QC (Canada) with 40 people on board, was on approach to Montreal when after lowering the landing gear the crew received a safe indication for the nose gear followed by unsafe indication of the nose gear, the nose gear indication frequently changing between safe and unsafe. The crew aborted the approach and declared emergency. After working the checklists the crew commenced a low approach to have the gear checked from the ground, the nose gear was reported down and obviously in its normal position. The crew subsequently positioned for a landing on runway 24R and touched down safely about 35 minutes after aborting the first approach.

The Canadian TSB reported that maintenance replaced a number of parts during subsequent examination but the indication still remained intermittent. A further search finally identified three connectors in the nose wheel well, that were partially connected to ground. The connectors were repaired, a following system check revealed normal operation and the aircraft was returned to service.

The incident aircraft resumed service 3 days later.
