Default Honda issues second Fit window recall, this time for 143k units

From AB




Statement by American Honda Regarding Master Power Window Switch
Recall: 2007-2008 Honda Fit

143,083 total Honda Fit vehicles are being recalled in the United
States
No crashes or injuries have been reported related to this issue
Customer notification will begin in mid-July

Honda will voluntarily recall 143,083 model-year 2007-2008 Fit
vehicles in the United States to replace the master power window
switch, at no charge to its customers. Under severe conditions, rain
water or other spilled liquids may enter through an open driver's
window and enter the master power window switch on the driver's door.
Over time, exposure to water and other fluids can cause electrical
resistance in the switch, which ultimately can cause the switch to
overheat and melt, damaging the switch and potentially damaging an
associated wire harness. Additionally, if a switch melts, it could
produce smoke and, potentially cause a fire. No crashes or injuries
have been reported related to this issue. Honda is advising customers
to park affected Fit vehicles outside until the power window master
switch has been inspected.

In January 2010, Honda conducted a recall of the same Fit vehicles for
this issue utilizing a repair procedure which has since been
determined by Honda not to be sufficiently robust to ensure that all
switches would be completely sealed against all possible moisture
intrusion. Under the current recall, which applies to all 2007-2008
Fit vehicles regardless of whether they were repaired as part of the
prior recall, owners of affected Fit vehicles will be asked to bring
their vehicle to their local dealer to have the master power window
switch inspected. If the inspection reveals existing damage to the
switch, the switch will be replaced immediately using Honda's current
limited stock of updated parts. If the inspection does not reveal any
damage to the master power window switch, the vehicle will be returned
to the customer, who will be contacted later in the year to have the
switch replaced when sufficient supplies of the updated switch are
available.

Honda is announcing this recall to encourage owners of all affected
vehicles to take their vehicles to an authorized dealer as soon as
they receive notification of this recall from American Honda. Mailed
notification will be sent to customers in mid-July 2013, and at that
time, owners of vehicles from the affected model years will be able to
determine if their vehicles require repair by visiting
www.recalls.honda.com or by calling (800) 999-1009 and selecting
option 4.
