Safety Recall Z4J: 2018-2019 Honda Odyssey Check Park Mechanism, Battery Terminal Inspection, and Update TCM

April 12, 2019

Loose Battery Terminal Connections

A damaged parking rod can allow the vehicle to roll when parked, increasing the risk of a crash or injury.

 

NHTSA Campaign Number: 19V299

Manufacturer Honda (American Honda Motor Co.)

Components POWER TRAIN, ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

Potential Number of Units Affected 50,504

 

Summary

Honda (American Honda Motor Co.) is recalling certain 2018-2019 Odyssey vehicles. Loose battery terminal connections or a degraded battery may cause the Transmission Control Unit (TCU) to unexpectedly reboot. Upon rebooting, the TCU may shift the transmission to the “Park” position, possibly damaging the parking rod.

 

Remedy

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will ensure the battery terminal connections are secure and will update the TCU software, free of charge. Additionally, the parking rod effectiveness will be checked. The recall began May 31, 2019. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-888-234-2138. Honda’s numbers for this recall are Z4J, Y4K.

 

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Safety Recall: 2018-19 Odyssey Check Park Mechanism (Snapshot Upload Required), Battery Terminal Inspection, and Update TCM

Supersedes 19-046 Safety Recall: 2018-19 Odyssey Check Park Mechanism, Battery Terminal Inspection, and Update TCM, dated May 24, 2019, to revise the information highlighted in yellow

 

AFFECTED VEHICLES

Year Model Trim VIN Range
2018-19 Odyssey Touring, Elite Check the iN VIN status for eligibility.

 

REVISION SUMMARY

Revised title and added notes to emphasize the need for a snapshot upload.

 

BACKGROUND

A momentary voltage loss to the TCM, usually caused by a loose battery terminal, can cause the transmission to shift to Park while driving. When this happens, the parking mechanism could get damaged, and the vehicle may move while the shifter is in Park.

 

CUSTOMER 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 new or used vehicle inventory.

Failure to repair a vehicle subject to a recall or campaign may subject your dealership to claims or lawsuits from the customer 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

  • Inspect the transmission’s ability to stay in Park (requires an assistant and snapshot upload).

NOTE

You need to send three snapshots of the inspection procedure results to Tech Line. If they are not sent, your claim will be debited and you will need to repeat this procedure at your dealership’s expense.

  • Replace the transmission if the park inspection procedure fails.
  • Inspect the battery terminals.
  • Clean or replace the terminals and/or battery if the terminal inspection fails (an extremely small percentage of vehicles may require a new battery or battery terminals).
  • Update the TCM (not required if transmission is replaced).

 

NOTE

If an error occurs during the update, go to TCM UPDATE ERROR.

Latest ECU Software

 

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.

The VCI Application Table below lists devices that either are approved and supported by Honda or are known to have completed and passed an independent, exhaustive validation program with our i-HDS software suite.

Manufacturer Version Information Notes VCI Name
Firmware J2534 API
DENSO 2.02.0002* 04.04 This is the current generation VCI used by Honda and Acura dealers. Honda routinely validates the functionality and provides customer support for this device. DST-i
DENSO 2.02.0002* 04.04 This is the current generation VCI used by Honda Canada Inc. Honda and Acura dealers. Honda routinely validates the functionality and provides customer support for this device. DST-nano

* These versions may have been superseded. Honda provides the latest supported versions to current i-HDS subscribers.
** Version used in validation program. See Terms and Conditions and Important Notice Regarding Reprogramming below for more details.

 

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.
