2012 Honda Fit Problems

AC fan speed stopped working

The A/C fan speed control switch stopped working, had my local Honda shop repair it. The Resister pack that controls the fan speed burned out. Simple fix except that on my particular year/model Honda had a service bulletin that stated there was a problem with the AC Fan that caused this resister pack to fail thus requiring the fan AND resister pack be replaced together. I had this done and have had no problems since then.

The Fuel Filler Door May Not Open

Fuel filler door may not open. Revised fuel fill push lifter is available from Honda to correct this issue.

 

Check Engine Light and Stuttering While Driving

The Honda Fit is known for sudden, poor drivability issues, as soon as 50,000 miles, such as:

  • Loss of power 
  • Engine Stalling 
  • Stuttering at highway speed 
  • Check engine light intermittent or flashing
  • "D4" light on intermittently or flashing 
  • OBD trouble code(s) P0300, P0301, P0302, P0303, and/or P0304
  • One or more ignition coils may fail unexpectedly, even though the code may clear.

    The coil packs will cause engine misfires during normal operation, and must be replaced to ensure engine performance.

    Cleaning and applying dielectric grease may help in very few cases.

    2012 Honda Fit Recalls

    Passenger Air Bag Inflator Ruptures During Deployment Spraying Metal Fragments

    The passenger frontal air bag inflator may rupture on deployment, causing metal fragments to come through the air bag and injure occupants. Dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator free of charge to resolve the concern.

    Driver's Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures And Sprays Metal Fragments

    The driver's frontal air bag inflator may be susceptible to moisture intrusion, which over time could cause the inflator to rupture. If this happens, it would spray metal fragments upon deployment. Dealers will replace the driver's frontal air bag inflator free of charge to resolve the concern.

    Updated Software Available for ESC Module

    The Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system helps to keep the vehicle from skidding out of control when the driver attempts to round a corner faster than conditions will allow. "Yaw" is the rate at which the vehicle is changing direction (left or right) from its forward motion. These Honda Fit vehicles are being recalled because the ESC module may allow an excessive yaw rate under certain conditions, increasing the chances the vehicle will spin. Dealers will update the ESC module software to correct this concern.
