Honda has issued a recall for 76,000 2006-07 Ridgeline pickup trucks, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The recall is to fix a wiring harness connector for the air conditioning that could sustain damage if accidentally kicked by the front passenger’s feet. If that occurs, the connector terminal could overheat and cause the wire insulation or wire connector to melt, potentially causing a short circuit, a fire, or both. One fire has been reported to NHTSA.

Honda dealers will inspect the wiring harness and if it’s damaged, they’ll replace it at no cost to the owner. All Ridgelines will have a protective cover installed over the wiring harness to prevent future damage from kicks.

Owners can contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009 or the NHTSA vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236.
