Chronology :

July 19, 2018
Honda observed a potential trend of, and received a market quality report on, malfunctioning RVCs in affected vehicles from North America.

October 2018 – November 2019
Honda investigated the issue to determine potential causes and prevalence of the issue in the market. Honda’s investigation identified that variations in the tightness of the zip tie holding the protective corrugated tubing in place and the depth to which the corrugated tubing was inserted into the associated harness guide could impact RVC performance. During this time, Honda applied production improvements to address these potential variations, with the last being applied on June 3, 2019.

November 2019 – July 2021
Honda continued to monitor the issue.

July 2021 – August 2021
Honda received communication from NHTSA ODI to investigate reports of RVC malfunctions in the affected vehicles. Honda informed NHTSA the concern was currently under study.

February 2022 – April 2022
NHTSA ODI opened a Preliminary Evaluation (PE) defect investigation. Honda informed NHTSA that the issue was considered to be one of quality, unrelated to safety.

October 27, 2022
NHTSA ODI notified Honda that the issue was considered to be related to safety.

November 17, 2022
Honda determined that a defect related to motor vehicle safety existed and decided to conduct a safety recall.

As of November 17, 2022, Honda has received 3,437 warranty claims related to the issue between December
2017 to October 2022, and no reports of injuries or deaths related to this issue.

1 Associated Investigation

Rear-View Camera Failure
Dated opened: February 7, 2022

The Office of Defects Investigation (ODI) has received 42 complaints and a number of Early Warning Reporting (EWR) Field Reports alleging failure of the Rear-View Camera (RVC) in 2017-2018 Model Year Honda Ridgeline vehicles. The complaints report severe damage to the tailgate wire harness requiring replacement of the harness. The damage to the wire harness is alleged to be caused by normal usage of the vehicle when opening and closing the tailgate. The damage to the wire harness severs the connection to the RVC causing it to fail to function as designed. Most of the complaints show the failure occurring just after the warranty mileage is exceeded.

Failure or malfunction of the RVC results in reduced visibility of the area behind the vehicle. This limited view may lead to an increased risk of a crash resulting in injury and/or property damage.

ODI is opening this Preliminary Evaluation (PE) to determine the scope and severity of the potential problem and to fully assess the potential safety-related issues.

The ODI reports cited above are available to review online at NHTSA.gov under ODI identification numbers:11440548, 11438172, 11428514, 11422394, 11420068, 11419669, 11415847, 11415248, 11413184, 11408414, 11404149, 11403368, 11403360, 11399178, 11398930, 11397936, 11397565, 11388328, 11374112, 11373525, 11372604, 11350026, 11343441, 11341373, 11329993, 11298458, 11443328, 11441551, 11437880, 11431246, 11422938, 11417394, 11400366, 11395026, 11363268, 11362758, 11362378, 11361959, 11350162, 11343035, 11319870, 11206191
