Under BACKGROUND, a note was added for vehicles that come in with the MIL on that are eligible for this recall.



The noise suppression capacitors inside the ignition coils may degrade over time causing the MIL to come on, the engine or fuel injection system to malfunction, or in severe cases, the engine to stall.

NOTE: If the MIL is on with DTC P0300 (random misfire detected) or P0301–P0304 (cylinder misfire detected), refer to service bulletin 16-034, MIL Comes On with DTC P0300, P0301, P0302, P0303, P0304, and do that procedure first.
Then, make sure you do this bulletin to complete the repair.



Owners of affected vehicles will be sent a notification of this campaign.

Do an iN VIN status inquiry to make sure the vehicle is shown as eligible.

Some vehicles affected by this campaign may be in your new or used vehicle inventory. These vehicles must be repaired before they are sold.

Should a dealership sell an unrepaired vehicle that subsequently causes an injury or damage because of the recalled item, the dealership will be solely responsible to the damaged party, and will be required to defend and indemnify American Honda for any resulting claims. To see if a vehicle in inventory is affected by this campaign, do a VIN status inquiry before selling it.



Replace the four ignition coils and, if necessary, clean the spark plug connection ends.
