  • Honda to recall 2008-2010 Accord to replace SRS Electric Control Unit!

The recall will affect approximately 341,000 Accord Sedans to replace their unit free of charge.

Honda will voluntarily recall approximately 341,000 Honda Accord Sedans in America. The recall will affect Honda Accord 2008-2010 model years. The recall will replace the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) electronic control unit.

According to Honda, the units may be prone to malfunction since moisture may enter the circuitry within the SRS electronic control unit. The moisture can cause corrosion and eventual malfunction of the unit over time.

If the malfunction occurs and there is a crash, the airbags may not deploy. So in the event of a vehicle crash the risk of injury may increase. According to Honda, so far there have been two injuries related to this issue.

Honda claims a new SRS control unit will be installed in affected vehicles. The installation will be free of charge but will take place in fall 2016 since a large volume of new parts are needed to repair affected units. The necessary parts will not be available until fall 2016.

The owners of affected vehicles will be informed of the recall in an initial mailed notification. The mail will reach the owners by mid-March 2016. Honda will issue a second notification letter when parts become available.

According to Honda the recall is a way to encourage all owners of affected vehicles to take them to an authorized dealer. Owners can determine if their vehicles are a part of the recall by visiting the website or calling Honda center.
