NHTSA safety recall results (167)

Recall information provided by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

Component not known


00V030
On certain minivans, a wire harness, located within the engine compartment, could be damaged by contact with a metal pipe, possibly resulting in a blown fuse. If a fuse blows, engine power, or operation of any or all electrical components, can be lost, including lights, windshield wipers, horn, and the anti-lock function of the brakes. A sudden loss of power or lighting, or a failure of the windshield wipers or anti-lock brake feature in bad weather, increases the risk of a crash.
Dealers will install a protective covering over the wire harness and metal pipe to prevent this problem. If any wires are damaged, the dealer will make the necessary repairs, and then install the protective covering. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was to begin during March 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.

01V329
On certain passenger vehicles, during the assembly process, the air cleaner box cover may have been damaged, and a broken plastic piece could travel into the intake chamber. If the plastic piece lodges in the throttle body, the throttle could stick in a partially open position. Although the driver can always stop the car by applying additional brake force, or by taking other actions (i.e., shift into neutral, turn off the ignition key, etc.), if the car continues to maintain speed when the driver is expecting it to slow, a crash could occur.
Dealers will inspect the air cleaner box for damage. If damage is found, the dealer will locate and remove the broken plastic piece, and replace the air cleaner box lid. The manufacturer reported that owner notification began Oct. 25, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.

01V380
Some sedans and coupes fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 209, "Seat Belt Assemblies." Certain rear seat belt buckles were improperly manufactured. The rear seat belts will work properly and provide protection in a crash, but the owner may experience difficulty unfastening the belt after the crash. Only buckles that are marked (on the back side of the buckle) with an assembly number beginning with 00185, 00186, or 00187 have the problem.
Dealers will inspect the vehicles and replace the seat belt assemblies that were improperly manufactured. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was expected to begin during January 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.

When the convertible top is down and the seats are pushed all the way back, the seat belts may not retract properly, resulting in slack in the seat belts. This slack can reduce the protective capability and effectiveness of the belts and increases the risk of injury to an occupant in a crash.
Dealers will replace the convertible top cover to prevent interference with the seat belt. The manufacturer reported that owner notification would begin during February 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.
