Honda Recall #
NHTSA Campaign #
On certain passenger vehicles, certain parts of the integrated motor assist (ima) system are located under a metal cover behind the rear seat-back. Over time the weight of rear seat passengers may cause the metal cover to come into contact with a rubber cap covering an electrical terminal. The rubber cap may get pinched, exposing the electrical terminal.
Dealers will install a plastic cover attached to a metal bracket over the rubber cap. The recall began on February 26, 2006. Owners may contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.
