Warranty Extension: EPS Torque Sensor (DTC 53-01 or DTC 53-02)

Supersedes 15-056, dated October 10, 2015; See REVISION SUMMARY

 

AFFECTED VEHICLES

Year Model Trim VIN Range
2013 Accord ALL Check the iN VIN status for eligibility
2014 Accord Plug-In ALL Check the iN VIN status for eligibility

 

REVISION SUMMARY

The gear box assembly is no longer a controlled part. Since only a small number of vehicles will need a gearbox assembly, order one only when your dealership has a vehicle with DTC 53-01 or 53-02.

 

BACKGROUND

American Honda is extending the warranty coverage on all electronic power steering torque sensors to 5 years from the original date of purchase with no mileage limit. This only applies to vehicles with EPS DTCs 53-01 torque sensor (low/high check) or DTC 53-02 torque sensor (average check).

This warranty extension will not apply to any vehicle that has ever been declared a total loss or sold for salvage by a financial institution or insurer, or has a branded or similar title under any state’s law.

 

CUSTOMER NOTIFICATION

Owners of affected vehicles will be sent a notification of this warranty extension in September 2015. Do an iN VIN status inquiry to make sure the vehicle is shown as eligible.

 

CORRECTIVE ACTION

Diagnose the vehicle, if DTC 53-01 or DTC 53-02 is stored, replace the power steering gear box assembly.

 

PARTS INFORMATION NOTE: 

  • American Honda expects very few (250 vehicles nationally) will require a gearbox replacement.
  • As American Honda expects very few vehicles will require gearbox replacement, please do not place orders unless you have a vehicle with DTC 53-01 or 53-02.
