NHTSA Recall 12V436000


Vehicles:  Honda Element

NHTSA Recall 12V436000

NHTSA Campaign ID number : 	12V436000
	
Vehicle Make / Model: 	    	Model Year(s):
     HONDA / ELEMENT 	    	2007-2011
Manufacturer: Honda (American Honda Motor Co.) 	Mfr's Report Date: AUG 31, 2012
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 12V436000 	NHTSA Action Number: N/A
Component: ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:WIRING
Potential Number of Units Affected: 5,216
Summary:
Honda is recalling certain model year 2007 through 2011 Element passenger vehicles equipped with an accessory trailer hitch wiring harness. The wire that supplies power to the trailer turn signal lights was inadvertently switched with the stop lamp wire. As a result the turn signals only illuminate when the brake lamps are illuminated. This does not comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."
Consequence:
Without trailer turn signal illumination, the driver's intent is not communicated, potentially increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Honda will notify owners, and dealers will repair the vehicles free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on, or about, September 20, 2012. Owners may contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.
Notes:
Honda's recall campaign number is S53. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
