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. The loss of the low beam headlights may increase the risk of a crash. No crashes or injuries have been reported related to this issue.
This recall now includes certain 2002-2004 CR-V, 2002-2003 Civic and 2003-2005 Pilot models.
Torque News reports The NHTSA initially began investigating the headlight problem last spring. The agency received 34 complaints related to the problem prior to launching the investigation and 12 complaints after beginning the probe.
Thus far there have not been any reported crashes or injuries do to this problem. The Japanese public multinational corporation began sending out letters to owners of these vehicles in late September, and they are prepared to begin fixing the wiring issue free of charge.
