Year(s):
2007, 2008
Manufacturer:
HONDA (AMERICAN HONDA MOTOR CO.)
NHTSA ID:
07V549000
Recall Date:
December 3rd, 2007
Units Affected:
34,300

Affected Component: Air bags:frontal.

Summary: On certain vehicles originally sold in or currently registered in the states of connecticut, delaware, illinois, indiana, iowa, kentucky, maine, maryland, massachusetts, michigan, minnesota, missouri, new hampshire, new jersey, new york, ohio, pennsylvania, rhode island, vermont, virginia, west virginia , wisconsin and the district of columbia. The wire harness for the occupant detection system (ods) and the occupant position detection system (opds) is routed underneath the carpet on the driver's side floorboard. In areas where road salt is used, salt from the snow on the driver's shoes will melt and may penetrate the carpet and leak into the wire harness. If the harness is exposed to salt brine, corrosion may occur and the wire may break causing the srs indicator light to illuminate. A failure of the ods and opds may not detect the presence of a child seat or an out-of-position passenger and deployment of both the front seat passenger's frontal and side air bags will not be suppressed. .

Conequence: In the event of a crash, a deploying front passenger air bag or front passenger's side air bag will increase the risk of injury to small or out-of-position occupants. .

Remedy: Dealers will inspect and replace the wire harness. The recall began on december 12, 2007. Owners may contact honda at 800-999-1009. .

Notes: Honda recall no. Q66. Customers may also contact the national highway traffic safety administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty 1-800-424-9153).

Affected Component: Visibility:power window devices and controls.

Summary: Honda is recalling certain model year 2007-2008 fit vehicles. Under severe condition, water may enter the driver's window and reach the master power window switch. If the master power window switch is damaged as a result of the water intrusion, overheating and failure of the switch may result. .

Conequence: An overheated switch can cause smoke, melting and fire. .

Remedy: Dealers will inspect the switch and install a cover around the switch housing to prevent water from entering the switch. If the switch is damaged, the switch will be replaced and a cover will be installed. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall began on during march 19, 2010.

Recall Date:
December 15th, 2010
Units Affected:
143,083

Affected Component: Exterior lighting:headlights:high/low beam dimmer switch.

Summary: Honda is recalling model year 2007-2008 honda fit vehicles. Due to an error during installation of the wiring harness for the combination switch that controls low head beam function, the wires for the lower beam circuit were pulled tighter than intended. After repeated use of the headlight switch, the electrical connector terminal for the low beam headlight circuit can become worn as a result of this tension, which can result in low conductivity and cause an accumulation of copper oxide in the area of the contacts. .

Conequence: The low beam headlights can become inoperative decreasing the driver's visibility as well as the vehicle's visibility to other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash. .

Remedy: Dealers will inspect the low beam terminal and perform necessary repairs free of charge. The safety recall began on january 24, 2011. Owners may contact honda at 1-800-999-1009. .

Notes: Honda's safety recall no. R58. Owners may also contact the national highway traffic safety administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty 1-800-424-9153).

Affected Component: Visibility:power window devices and controls.

Summary: Honda is re-recalling certain model year 2007-2008 fit vehicles covered under previous recall 10v-033. The remedy applied in this earlier recall may have been insufficient. In the affected vehicles, over time, the plastic cover may separate from the master power window switch allowing water to enter the driver's window and reach the master power window switch. If the master power window switch is damaged as a result of the water intrusion, overheating and failure of the switch may result. .

Conequence: An overheated switch can cause smoke, melting and fire. .

Remedy: Honda will notify owners in july 2013 and will instruct owners to take their vehicles to dealers to have a free inspection conducted. If the switch is damaged, it will be replaced free of charge. If the switch is not damaged, the owner will be instructed to await a second notification that will instruct them to return to the dealer to have a replacement switch installed free of charge. Honda anticipates it will have sufficient parts inventory to notify owners of vehicles with undamaged switches to return to dealers for replacement switches in fall 2013.
