TORRANCE, Calif. -
Honda announced late last week it will recall approximately 554,000 model-year 2002 through 2004 CR-V and model-year 2003 Pilot vehicles in the United States to inspect and replace components of the headlight wiring system.
The automaker discovered there is a potential failure with the wiring of the headlight switch that may cause the low beam headlights to become inoperative.
Honda acknowledged the loss of the low beam headlights may increase the risk of a crash. But the company insisted no crashes or injuries have been reported related to this issue.
The OEM is encouraging owners of all affected vehicles to take their vehicles to an authorized franchised dealer as soon as they receive notification of this recall from Honda. Officials said mailed notification to customers will begin in late next month.
In addition to contacting customers by mail, Honda mentioned owners of these vehicles can determine if their units require repair by going online to www.recalls.honda.com or by calling (800) 999-1009, and selecting option No. 4.
