This limited regional recall is for vehicles currently registered or first sold in Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and equipped with Takata-brand air bag inflators.

Honda is recalling 2004–2005 Accords because the wiring harness for the seat position sensor (SPS) was attached to the wrong place on the seat frame and may have been overtightened. If the wire breaks, it may cause the SPS to fail and the air bag warning light to illuminate. A failure of the SPS may cause the air bag system to default to full inflation pressure, regardless of seat position, which can increase the risk of injury for smaller drivers. Dealers will replace the sensor wiring sub harness free of charge.
