NHTSA Recall 19V-060

 

IMPORTANT SAFETY RECALL

This notice applies to your vehicle: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

 

Dear <First Name Last Name>,

This notice is sent to you in accordance with the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act.

 

WHAT IS THE REASON FOR THIS NOTICE?

Honda has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 2015–2017 model year Accord vehicles equipped with a V6 engine. Fuels containing high sodium content can contaminate certain internal components in the fuel pump and reduce fuel flow to the engine.

 

SAFETY CONSEQUENCE

Reduced fuel flow to the engine combined with vehicle operation in high temperature conditions can restrict vehicle acceleration and/or cause an engine stall, which increases the risk of a crash.

 

EMISSION CONSEQUENCE

The check engine light may illuminate as a result of this defect. Your vehicle may fail a state or local emissions inspection when such tests are required under state law if you do not have the repair done.

 

WHAT WILL HONDA DO?

The dealer will update the software for the engine control unit with programming that eliminates sodium contamination in the fuel pump for free. The dealer will also perform a diagnostic scan on your vehicle and, if the diagnostic scan confirms a previous occurrence of engine stalling, the fuel pump will be replaced for free.

 

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?

Please call any Honda automobile dealer and make an appointment to have your vehicle’s software programming updated, a diagnostic scan performed and if necessary, the fuel pump will be replaced for free. Once you make an appointment for your vehicle, be advised that the reprogramming process may take approximately 30 minutes. If the fuel pump must be replaced, the total repair process (including software update) may take approximately 1 hour. However, your dealer can provide you with a better estimate of the overall time for this service visit, as it may be necessary to make your vehicle available for a longer period of time. If you are not the only driver of this vehicle, please advise all other drivers and passengers of this important information!

 

CHECK YOUR VEHICLE FOR OPEN RECALLS

i-HDS Diagnostic Software and J2534 Reprogramming Software

American Honda Motor Co., Inc. (“Honda”) offers the i-HDS (Honda Diagnostic System) software suite for the diagnosis and repair of electronic systems on Honda and Acura automobiles, and for the reprogramming of electronic control units (including, but not limited to, ECMs and PCMs). This software provides access to all Honda and Acura vehicle systems (access to the immobilizer security system requires a Security Professional level software subscription and Vehicle Security Professional [VSP] registration with NASTF). To use the i-HDS software, you need to purchase one of our convenient subscription options. In addition, you will need a pass-thru Vehicle Communication Device (VCI) that is compliant with SAE J2534-1 and J2534-2 in order to communicate with the vehicle

 

Vehicle Communication Interfaces (VCI)

The i-HDS software supports the use of a generic pass-thru VCI that is compliant with SAE J2534-1 and J2534-2. However, Honda recommends the Denso DST-i or the Bosch MVCI for use on Honda and Acura vehicles, as Honda has worked closely with these manufacturers to ensure their hardware and our software interact safely and within the J2534-1 and -2 specifications, for both diagnostics and reprogramming. If you choose to use a generic VCI, please carefully consider the customer and technical support options you will receive from your chosen device supplier. Honda does not provide technical or customer support for generic VCI devices.

Reprogramming with the J2534 Rewrite Application in i-HDS

Included in the i-HDS software suite is a new reprogramming application called J2534 Rewrite. This application is made available to all subscribers of the i-HDS software suite and replaces the previous generation software, J2534 Honda Pass-thru Reprogramming Software.

This new application is compatible with generic VCIs that comply with SAE J2534. It must be used to reprogram any Honda/Acura vehicle equipped with ECUs that support reprogramming. Refer to the table below for legacy applicability for the programming of ECMs and PCMs. Though system dependent, late-model vehicles may be equipped with other ECUs that support reprogramming as well, e.g. ABS or VSA. J2534 Rewrite must be used to reprogram these control modules, as instructed in an applicable service bulletin.

As shown in this table, not all legacy Honda/Acura models are equipped with a reprogrammable ECM/PCM. Furthermore, all 2007 and later models not listed in the table are fully supported with this application.
