Honda CR-V Recall announced for Power Window Switch Failure

Car recall - BSN

(Best Syndication News) - Honda announced the recall of around 268,655 CR-V passenger vehicles because the driver-side power-window switch could fail to work correctly or melt. The problem was reported to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on October 5, 2012.

Only the model years between 2002 and 2006 are involved in this recall. The manufacturing dates of the recalled cars were between February 19, 2002 and July 28, 2006.

The switch that operates the window could overheat, smoke, and potentially cause a fire. Additionally, the switch could fail even when it is not being used; even with no person present in the vehicle. Because a fire potential does exist, owners should park their cars outside until the repair has been completed.

Honda will be letting the vehicle owners and dealers know of the recall. They will give the owners instructions on how to get the free repair of the switches as needed. The recall notifications should start on or around November 2, 2012. Concerned owners can also contact Honda’s toll-free customer service at 1-800-999-1009.
