2006 Honda Civic Problems

Airbag Light Due to Failed Occupant Position Sensor

The airbag warning light (SRS) may illuminate due to a defective occupant position sensor. Honda has a recall campaign to replace defective sensors on affected cars.

Power Window Switch May Fail

On Certain models a faulty power window switch can cause the power windows to work or not work intermittently.

Possible Shift Control Solenoid Fault

The shift control solenoid externally mounted on the automatic transmission (non CVT) can fail and causes a harsh 1-2 shift. Replacing the shift solenoid and flushing the transmission with genuine Honda automatic transmission fluid may eliminate harsh shifting characteristics. A broken internal spring can cause the same issue. If the shift control solenoid does not repair the problem, the transmission will have to be replaced.

Passenger Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures On Deployment

Honda Recalls Certain 1998-2007 Civic CNG Vehicles to Add Insulation for the CNG Tank

Honda recalled certain compressed natural gas (CNG) Civic vehicles to add insulation to the rear seat back. In the event of an interior fire, the CNG tank could become compromised due to uneven heating, preventing the pressure relief safety device from functioning as designed. If the tank heats and does not vent the contents, the tank could rupture and explode. Dealers will install the insulation to help protect the tank from uneven heating.

Honda Recalls 2006-2007 Civic Hybrid and CNG Models for Possible Brake Light Switch Failure

Honda is recalling 2006-2007 Civic Hybrid and CNG models to address a concern about the excessive lubricant used for the telescoping steering column, which may drip onto and damage the brake light switch. If this happens, the brake lights could become inoperative and the shifter may not release from the "Park" position. Honda will replace the brake light switch and install a protective cover over the brake light switch free of charge.
