RepairPal Expert Overview
A failed bearing inside the automatic transmission may cause internal damage, which can cause the engine to stall or the vehicle to roll while the transmission is in Park.
Honda will notify owners of affected vehicles beginning August 31, 2011. If you are experiencing stalling or rolling while the vehicle is in Park, or if you don't receive notification, please contact your dealer. It's helpful to have your vehicle identification number (VIN) when you call.
Certain driving styles can result in a broken outer race of the secondary shaft bearing inside the automatic transmission. A broken outer race may cause abnormal noise, the Check Engine Light to turn on, and contact between the transmission idle gear and an electronic sensor housing to occur. This could result in a short circuit, causing the engine to stall. Also, pieces of the outer race or ball bearing may become lodged in the parking pawl, resulting in the vehicle rolling after the driver has placed the shifter in the Park position. Dealers will update the transmission control module software to correct this concern. The Honda recall number is R89.
