Recall roundup: Honda Civic and Pilot for a wiring fault in the headlight switch image

Honda has recently announced that the recall issued back in March for the CR-V and the Pilot crossovers has been recently expanded to the Civic and the 2004-2005 Pilot in the U.S.

According to the Japanese based automaker, owners of the 2002-2003 Honda Civic and the 2004-2005 Honda Pilot will have to take a trip back to the dealers because of the same problem found back in March, when the original recall was issued. The carmaker says that the models mentioned above have a problem with the wiring in the headlight switch which can cause the low-beams to not work.

“Honda has expanded a March 2012 low beam headlight recall to additionally include approximately 820,000 model-year 2002-2003 Civic and model-year 2004-2005 Pilot vehicles in the United States. Honda dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace components of the headlight wiring system. There is a potential failure with the wiring of the headlight switch which may cause the low beam headlights to become inoperative”, as the automaker is saying in its official press release.

The car manufacturer is saying that no crashes or injuries have been reported because of this problem. The recall will be expanded and the dealers have been notified. Owners will be mailed and announced about this new recall and they are advised to contact Honda at 800-999-1009.
