Default Honda recalling 25k Odyssey minivans over side curtain airbags

Filed under: Minivan/Van, Recalls, Honda



Honda's refreshed 2014 Odyssey (now with 100-percent more vacuum power!) launched last year, but is now being called back for issues related to the side curtain airbags. According to Honda, 24,889 Odyssey minivans are affected by an issue that may cause the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) warning light to illuminate or, even worse, cause the side airbags to not deploy in a crash.

What went wrong, exactly? We'll let Honda explain:
During assembly of the electrical coupler for the side curtain airbag on the passenger's side of the vehicle, it is possible that the shorting terminal, which is used to prevent deployment of the airbag before it is assembled into the vehicle, may have been damaged. A damaged shorting terminal may illuminate the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) indicator as well as prevent the side curtain airbag from deploying during a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

Honda dealers will replace the shorting computer, free of charge. Owners will be notified by mail after May 16. For the full details, scroll down for Honda's press blast.Continue reading Honda recalling 25k Odyssey minivans over side curtain airbags
