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.
Honda Accord Recalls
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.
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.
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.
The tire beads may have been damaged upon installation from the factory. Dealers will remove all four tires and inspect them for bead area damage, replacing damaged tires free of charge to resolve the concern.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
