Honda Accord recalls

 

For Models: Honda Accord

Body, Interior & Misc., April 11, 2008

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Honda is recalling 2003 Accord models due to possible corrosion in the motor housing if water enters the windshield wiper motor breather port. This can cause the electrical circuit breaker inside the motor housing to fail, which can cause the windshield wiper motor to become inoperative. Dealers will inspect and repair/replace the wiper motor.

For Models: Acura RL, Acura TL, Acura TSX, Honda Accord, Honda Accord Hybrid, Honda Odyssey, Honda Ridgeline

Engine, April 2, 2007

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

For Models: Honda Accord

Body, Interior & Misc., February 8, 2007

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

For Models: Acura MDX, Acura RL, Acura RSX, Acura TL, Acura TSX, Honda Accord, Honda CR-V, Honda Civic, Honda Element, Honda Fit, Honda Insight, Honda Odyssey, Honda Pilot, Honda Ridgeline

Body, Interior & Misc., August 2, 2006

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Honda has recalled 2006 Accord, Civic, CR-V, Element, Insight, Odyssey, Pilot, Ridgeline, Acura MDX, RL, RSX, TL, TSX, and 2007 Honda Fit vehicles because the contact information for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is listed incorrectly in the owner's manual. Honda is contacting dealers and customers to provide them with a postcard containing the correct information.

For Models: Acura TL, Honda Accord, Honda Odyssey

Electrical & Lights, April 13, 2005

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

Electrical & Lights, March 7, 2005

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

For Models: Honda Accord

Body, Interior & Misc., November 30, 2004

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Honda is recalling certain sedans due to a tear in the fabric of the driver's front air bag during deployment. A torn air bag may not offer the same level of protection in the even of a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will install a protective fabric flap between the air bag module cover and the inner module.

Electrical & Lights, June 16, 2004

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Honda is recalling certain passenger vehicles because the dimmer control for the instrument panel lights could fail due to heat buildup. If this happens at night, the driver may not be able to see the instrument panel gauges, including the speedometer. Dealers will replace a multiplex control unit for the instrument panel lights.

For Models: Acura CL, Acura MDX, Acura TL, Honda Accord, Honda Odyssey, Honda Pilot

Drive Train, April 27, 2004

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

For Models: Acura CL, Acura TL, Honda Accord, Honda Odyssey

Electrical & Lights, December 8, 2003

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.
