Model Years Affected: 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010

Average Mileage: 30,777 mi (27,555 mi - 34,000 mi)

Verified
On certain models the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) misinterprets data from the coolant sensor and sets a false Check Engine light (MIL). A software update from Honda is required for this repair.

    Put a piece of black tape over light--goes out and on every other week--replaced thermostat and now it could be one of two sensors--another way for Honda to drain $$$ from the consumer!!!
