2005 Honda Odyssey Recalls
This limited regional recall is for vehicles currently registered or first sold in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and equipped with Takata-brand air bag inflators. Upon deployment the passenger airbag inflator could rupture, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will replace the affected airbag inflator modules to correct this concern.
The affected vehicles are being recalled because a fuel leak can develop from the area of the fuel pump strainer cover. Parts to permanently repair this concern are not yet available. Honda will first send owners an interim letter, followed by a second letter when the remedy parts become available. Parts are expected to be available beginning in the summer of 2014. Vehicles currently leaking fuel from the pump cover will get a replacement using the part currently available. All recalled vehicles will receive a revised cover once the part becomes available.
Use of incorrect brake fluid may cause a rubber seal in the rear of the master cylinder to become dry and leak. The leaking fluid will enter the brake booster and may not be visible externally. A loss of brake fluid can reduce braking efficiency, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the affected seal on all master cylinders, leaking or not. This recall is scheduled to begin during December of 2010. The Acura recall number is R52; the Honda Recall Number is R51.
The gas struts may deteriorate unexpectedly early. This may cause the liftgate to close unexpectedly and possibly injure someone. Dealers will inspect and replace the gas liftgate struts free of charge.
Honda has recalled 2005 Accord, Odyssey, Acura RL, TL, TSX, and 2006 Ridgeline models because the fuel pump relay may fail. This can prevent the fuel pump from operating, which may cause the engine to stall or not start. Dealers will replace the fuel pump relay.
Water may enter the frontal impact sensors because they may not have been sealed properly in manufacturing. If water enters the sensor, corrosion can occur and the sensor can short circuit internally. The SRS warning lamp will illuminate if this happens and the front airbags may not deploy in a crash, which can increase the risk of injury. Dealers will replace the front impact sensors free of charge. The recall began August 30, 2005. The Honda recall number is P80.
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.
On 203 vehicles, the steering column may be assembly incorrectly, which could result in a loss of steering and possibly a crash without warning. Owners were notified by telephone on January 25, 2005, and arrangements were made to have their vehicles towed and repaired. The Honda recall number is P70.
Some wheel speed sensors on the rear wheels were installed incorrectly and may report the wrong speed to the ABS control unit. This could cause a sudden loss of braking and a crash could occur. Dealers will inspect the rear wheel speed sensors for the correct gap. If the gap is incorrect, the sensor will be removed and the knuckle checked for cross threading damage. If damage is found, the knuckle will be replaced. If no damage is found, the sensor will be reinstalled correctly. The recall began November 12, 2004. The Honda recall number is P52.
