What are the defects?

The battery sensor installed in the affected vehicles may have been improperly manufactured, with gaps that could allow for moisture intrusion.

What are the hazards?

If moisture containing conductive substances (such as road salt) enters the battery sensor, it could cause an electrical short and consequently a fire.

What should consumers do?

Once parts availability is confirmed, owners of affected vehicles will be contacted by mail and advised to take their vehicle to a Honda Dealer. The dealer will inspect the battery sensor to confirm if a countermeasure part has previously been installed. If required, the battery sensor will be replaced.
