Vehicles Affected: Approximately 241,000 model-year 2018-20 Honda Odyssey minivans
The Problem: The wire harness leading to the third-row accessory power outlet may have been damaged when the interior panel covering the harness was installed, pinching it between the panel and the metal vehicle body. If the wire harness was damaged, a short circuit can occur, heating the plastic harness cover and increasing the risk of a fire.
Honda said it is aware of three fires related to this issue but no reported injuries.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect, reroute and wrap in insulating tape the wire harness leading to the third-row accessory power outlet. If the wire harness is found to be damaged, it will be replaced. All repairs will be done for free.
What Owners Should Do: Honda will begin notifying owners in mid-March. Owners can call the automaker at 888-234-2138, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
