Honda Water Leak Recall

Honda is recalling certain model year 2017 Honda Ridgeline AWD vehicles manufactured April 1, 2016 to August 11, 2016, because water may enter the rear wiring harness through the connector located under the truck bed drain hole, possibly causing the connection terminals to corrode.  According to Honda, corrosion of the wiring harness can cause increased electrical resistance, unexpectedly activating the vehicle stability assist (VSA) system, and increasing the risk of a crash.


According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration ("NHTSA"), Honda will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the rear wiring harness and related components, replacing them as necessary, all free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 24, 2017. 

Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-888-234-2138, and should reference recall KD3.  Owners may also contact the NHTSA Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safecar.gov.
