Honda Malaysia has just announced a product recall for Battery Sensor Failure and Defective Door Mirror Component. The affected models in the recall are Odyssey and Accord.
The Battery Sensor Failure issue is due to inaccurate forming on the printed circuit board (PCB) in the battery sensor during its production process. This may cause electrical short circuit of the sensor, and possibilities of smoke coming form the hood or, in the worst case, a fire. Model affected: 20,233 units of Accord (2013 – 2016 Year Model).
The Defective Door Mirror Component is due to inconsistent surface treatment of the movable contact area inside the door mirror retracting switch, which may cause the affected door mirror to retract during driving or parking. Models affected: 27,912 of Accord (2013 – 2016 Year Model) and 971 units of Odyssey (2014 – 2017 Year Model).
