Isn't it a defective seat switch on the passenger side. Has to do with
a child being injured by an air bag because the child is too small.
That's what I heard.

to find out. I heard something about fire hazard.
Maybe its an electrical fire hazard ?

No. In some cases the service technician has failed to remove the old
gasket when installing a new oil filter during the first oil change
(thus having two gaskets, the old and the new) and this has on occasion
lead to engine fires. There is no recall related to this. The NHTSA
invesitgated this and closed the investigation without requesting a
recall. I believe the investigation has been re-opened. The particular
material used in the original oil filter gaskets had a tendency to stick
to the engine block, making it easy for service technicians to forget to
remove them. The material has now been changed.

Honda just announced on Dec. 8th a new campaign strategy to assure customers
about the oil filter controversy. This may be what you've been hearing
about. Notification to dealers is as follows:

Background: American Honda is announcing a Customer Assurance Program that
affects all 2003 and 2004 model year CR-Vs and selected 2005 model year
CR-Vs.



We have found that oil filter gaskets on 2003 and later model year CR-Vs
have a slightly greater tendency to adhere to the engine block only during
the first oil filter change. If the replacement filter is installed on top
of the original gasket ("double gasket" situation), leakage occurs shortly
thereafter, usually within a few miles of driving or immediately following a
cold start when the oil pressure is higher. The result has been oil leakage
and, in some cases, engine compartment fires.

1. At PDI, immediately begin replacing factory installed oil filters
on 2004-05 CR-Vs with a service replacement oil filter.

2. We will send all affected CR-V owners a notification letter,
alerting them to this potential first oil filter change problem.





Customer Notification
This customer assurance program affects about 318,000 customer vehicles.
Letters will be mailed to all known owners December 10 thru 17. The
customer notification comes with an oil filter gasket label. In the letter,
the customer is instructed to bring the label with them to their first oil
filter replacement service and to have the service advisor attach it to the
repair order. The label reminds technicians to return the old filter gasket
to the customer, to verify it was properly removed.

OEM oil filter gaskets have a slightly greater tendency to adhere to the
engine block than do replacement oil filter gaskets. Service replacement oil
filters do not have this tendency. Keep in mind that this program only
applies to the very first oil filter replacement on 2003-05 CR-Vs.



I hope this answers your question.

Howard
