Honda Recalls 2010 Accord, CR-V For Electrical Problem

January 13, 2011

American Honda Motor Company has issued a recall for the 2010 Accord and 2010 CR-V. At issue: a fault in a wiring harness, which could cause vehicles to stall.

According to a bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the flaw lies in the engine wiring harness connector. If the connector fails, it could result in "intermittent spark firing" or, in the worst-case scenario, it could cause the engine to stall.

Although any mention of sparks raises the specter of fire, in this case, that doesn't appear to be an issue. Stalling, however, represents a very serious problem and obviously increases the possibility of a crash.

The recall affects a total of 2,277 vehicles. To see if yours is affected, contact your dealer, or call Honda at 800-999-1009. Alternately, you can reach the NHTSA at 888-327-4236 and reference recall campaign #11V004000

If your vehicle is included in the recall, Honda will replace the harness connector free of charge. Repairs are slated to begin in February.
