REVISION SUMMARY

  • Information was updated under WARRANTY CLAIM INFORMATION.
  • Information was updated under REQUIRED TOOLS.
  • 2004-06 TL models were moved to S/B 19-020, Safety Recall: Driver’s Airbag Replacement Inflator Can Be Over-Pressurized (Module Replacement)

 

BACKGROUND

In certain vehicles, the replacement driver’s (front) airbag inflator (from either a previous recall repair or an airbag module replacement) could produce excessive internal pressure during airbag deployment. If an affected airbag deploys, the increased internal pressure may cause the inflator casing to rupture. Metal fragments could pass through the airbag cushion material, possibly causing injury or fatality to vehicle occupants.

NOTE

If the VIN status inquiry indicates that the vehicle is subject to any open safety recalls, including a front passenger’s airbag inflator campaign/recall, make sure to also complete those recall repairs before returning the vehicle to the client. If you are unable to complete any open recall, advise the client of the recall status and when the recall could be completed.

You may receive a different part number than ordered, and the inflator may appear different. As a result, there may be different installation instructions. Make sure you review this service bulletin for installation instructions and details about model applicability.

 

CLIENT NOTIFICATION

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 used vehicle inventory.

Failure to repair a vehicle subject to a recall or campaign may subject your dealership to claims or lawsuits from the client or anyone else harmed as a result of such failure. To see if a vehicle in inventory is affected by this safety recall, do a VIN status inquiry before selling it.

 

CORRECTIVE ACTION

Replace the driver’s airbag inflator, then return the original, undeployed inflator as directed.

 

REQUIRED TOOLS

Part Name Part Number Quantity
Bulldog Metal Snips MWT6716B 1

 

NOTES

  • The metal snips have smaller jaws compared to regular tin snips to give you better mechanical advantage and allow the snips to fit in the tight area around the airbag.
  • Make sure you use these snips to minimize the amount of debris created. Never allow any debris to fall into the airbag while the inflator is out of the airbag module.
  • Replace the snips when they are dull. Dull snips may contribute to the horn plate being bent or creating small pieces of metal that could get into the airbag.
  • If you need a replacement or more snips, contact the Tool and Equipment Program at 888-424-6857.

 

PARTS INFORMATION

NOTE

Always use new Torx bolts to install the airbag module. The new Torx bolts are coated with threadlock to make sure they do not come loose.

573.6(c)(6)
Chronology:
June 2014
Honda launched a regional safety improvement campaign NHTSA ID 14V-351 and began using PSDI-5D inflators as recall remedy parts.
March 2015
As the scope of the non-desiccated PSAN airbag inflator recalls expanded, Honda began sourcing recall remedy airbag inflators from alternative manufacturers to supplement the supply of replacement parts.
July 2016
Honda stopped ordering, and instructed dealers to stop installing, the PSDI-5D inflator as a recall remedy part.
March 21, 2018
Honda was informed of a January 19, 2018 crash in which it was alleged that the driver’s airbag inflator had ruptured during airbag deployment.
March 23, 2018
An initial rupture incident report was submitted to NHTSA per Standing General Order 2015-01A.
April 10, 2018
A joint field inspection of the subject vehicle performed by the airbag inflator supplier, NHTSA, and Honda confirmed that the driver’s airbag inflator had ruptured. The inspection also confirmed that the ruptured airbag inflator was a PSDI-5D that was installed in the subject vehicle as a recall remedy part. A final rupture incident report was submitted to NHTSA per Standing General Order 2015-01A.
Mid-April – early February 2019
Honda began an investigation of the ruptured replacement airbag inflator in collaboration with the airbag inflator supplier and NHTSA. As part of this investigation, the parties sourced similar PSDI-5D replacement parts from warehouse inventory and initiated DOE testing. As PSDI-5D replacement parts were collected from the field, including airbag inflators produced in the same timeframe as the ruptured airbag inflator, DOE testing and analysis of those inflators also occurred. Ultimately, analysis of the ruptured replacement airbag inflator, along with the field inflators, did not result in a conclusive determination of the factors that may contribute to the over-pressurization observed in these inflators. However, all available evidence points towards a manufacturing process anomaly.
February 15, 2019
Honda met with NHTSA and shared the status of the investigation.
March 6, 2019
Honda determined that a defect related to motor vehicle safety existed and decided to conduct a safety recall.
As of March 6, 2019, Honda has received one injury claim related to this issue.

1 Associated Investigation

Air Bag Inflator Rupture
NHTSA ID: EA15001
Dated opened: February 24, 2015

The Office of Defects Investigation (ODI) opened PE14-016 in June 2014 based on six inflator rupture incidents involving consumer owned vehicles produced by five vehicle manufacturers. All six vehicles were operated in Florida or Puerto Rico at the time of the rupture and for the majority of their service life, and were equipped with inflators produced by Takata, a tier-one supplier of automotive air bag systems.

During the course of PE14-016, ODI determined that five additional vehicle manufacturers used inflators of a similar design and vintage also supplied by Takata. No evidence of field failures was found in vehicles produced by these five additional manufacturers. Nonetheless, at ODI’s insistence, all 10 vehicle manufacturers initiated a regional recall within approximately two weeks of the opening of the investigation. The regions recalled initially included Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, areas with high absolute humidity and climatic conditions believed to be a significant factor in the inflator ruptures. As part of the recall actions, inflators removed from remedied vehicles are to be returned to Takata for testing.

Takata’s initial test results on passenger inflators from remedied vehicles indicated a much higher than anticipated rupture frequency for inflators returned from Florida. Accordingly ODI requested all 10 manufacturers expand the regional recalls for passenger inflators to include other geographic areas where high absolute humidity conditions exist, including the Gulf States and other coastal areas. Takata’s testing of the passenger inflators to date continues to indicate this geographic area as having the highest risk, with no ruptures occurring from inflators returned from outside the expanded recall regions. During PE14-016 four additional passenger inflator field events occurred, all in vehicles from the same expanded geographic region.

Also during PE14-016 four additional driver inflator field events occurred including two in vehicles from regions not known for high absolute humidity, specifically California and North Carolina. Accordingly, ODI requested all five of the affected vehicle manufacturers currently using the subject Takata driver inflators expand to nationwide recalls. Significantly, neither of the affected vehicle manufacturers or Takata provided any explanation to account for these two driver air bag inflator ruptures outside the area of high absolute humidity. Takata testing of returned driver inflators indicates a lower rupture frequency as compared to passenger inflator testing. All test ruptures reported by Takata to date have occurred on inflators returned from high absolute humidity areas.

The investigation now includes all manufacturers and vehicles known to be affected at this time. ODI’s investigation will focus on, among other things, root cause analysis, other potential defect consequences, identification of affected vehicles scope, and adequacy of the remedy.

The five ODI reports cited above can be reviewed online at https://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/owners/SearchNHTSAID under the following identification numbers: 10537899, 10568848, 10585224, 10605877, 10651492
