I took the car to a local car audio shop that told me it may be the internal amp inside the radio that went bad and would cost me about $250 to repair or I could install an aftermarket radio underneath the existing radio where the cubby is located for about $160 or I coul...

2009 Honda Accord Recalls

Air Bags May Not Deploy In An Accident

The air bag control unit may corrode and fail, resulting in the air bags not deploying when needed in an accident. Dealers will replace the air bag control units free of charge to resolve the concern.

Side Air Bags Or Seat Air Bags Deploy When Not Needed

The side impact air bags and/or seat air bags could deploy with only minimal jarring, rather than an actual collision. Dealers will update the air bag control unit software free of charge to resolve the concern.

Automatic Transmission Bearing Failure

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.
