  6. 2002 Honda CR-V EXTERIOR LIGHTING:HEADLIGHTS:SWITCH NHTSA Campaign #12V136000

    • Date Announced: MARCH 30, 2012
    • Vehicles Affected: 1,375,217

    Summary: Honda is recalling certain model year 2002 through 2004 CR-V; model year 2003 through 2005 Pilot; and model year 2002 and 2003 civic vehicles. In March 2012, Honda filed a defect report to recall certain model year 2002 through 2004 CR-V and certain model year 2003 Pilot vehicles. In August 2012, Honda informed the Agency that it was including an additional 820,789 vehicles including certain model year 2004 and 2005 Pilot and model year 2002 and 2003 civics. The total number of vehicles being recalled is now 1,375,217. Due to tension from the combination switch wiring harness, wear on the surface of the electrical terminal can occur, yielding copper oxide, which increases electrical resistance. Increased electrical resistance may cause the terminal ends to melt within the wiring harness connector.

    Consequence: If the terminal ends melt within the wiring harness connector, the low beam headlights may become inoperative, reducing driver visibility and increasing the risk of a crash.

    Actions: Honda will notify owners, and dealers will repair the low beam terminal harness or replace the lighting switch as necessary, free of charge. The original recall began in April 2012. Owners of vehicles involved in the September 2012 expansion will be notified in September 2012. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-800-999-1009.

A replacement air bag may have been installed, as one example, if a vehicle had been in a crash necessitating the replacement of the driver's air bag.

    Consequence: In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's air bag, the inflator could produce excessive internal pressure that could cause the inflator to rupture with metal fragments striking and injuring the driver or other occupants.
