Honda has recalled 2005 Honda Accord, Odyssey, and Acura TL vehicles because the fuel pump may lose power due to a loose wiring terminal in the main fuse box. If the fuel pump loses power, the vehicle will not start. Dealers will replace the fuse box.
Honda has recalled 1997-2001 Prelude, 1999-2002 Accord, and 1999-2000 Acura TL models because the ignition switch interlock may fail. If this happens, the key will be removable before the engine is in the "Park" position, which could cause the vehicle to roll and crash. Dealers will confirm interlock function and vehicles will receive an updated interlock lever free of charge.
The wire harness located in the trunk hinge area is not adequately protected and over time could be damaged by the trunk opening and closing. A damaged harness could result in a blown fuse, causing loss of license plate, back-up, and tail light function. Loss of tail lights could reduce visibility and increase the risk of a crash. This recall began on September 15, 2004. The Acura recall number is P45.
Honda and Acura are recalling numerous 2001–2004 vehicles to inspect for an internal automatic transmission fault. This fault could result in gear failure, which can cause the transmission to lock up. If the transmission were to lock up with the vehicle in motion, a crash could result. If the inspection reveals internal transmission damage, the transmission will be replaced. If no internal damaged is noted, the transmission oil cooler return line will be revised in order to increase fluid flow. For more information, please call Honda at 1-800-999-1009 or Acura at 1-800-382-2238.
Honda has recalled 1998-1999 Accord and Acura CL, and 1999 Odyssey and Acura TL vehicles because the ignition cylinder body may be worn, which can cause the shift interlock not to function properly. If the vehicle does not securely lock in "Park" due to a worn ignition cylinder, the vehicle may roll, which can cause a safety issue. Dealers will inspect the cylinder body for wear and replace the cylinder body, collar, and latch plate if necessary. If there are no signs of wear and all is operating as designed, dealers will replace the latch plate.
The brake system master cylinder may corrode internally. This may result in poor braking performance and lengthened stopping distances, which can cause an accident. Dealers will replace the master cylinder assembly.
Honda has recalled 2002 Accord, Odyssey, Acura CL, MDX, and 2003 Honda Pilot, Acura CL, and TL vehicles because the timing belt tensioner pulley, which is mounted on the water pump, may be misaligned and at risk for failure. Dealers will inspect the tensioner pulley and water pump and will replace the pump and timing belt if necessary.
The electrical contacts in the ignition switch may be worn. This may cause the engine to stall while driving, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the ignition switch to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin by June 14, 2002.
