Vehicle Make / Model:     Model Year(s):
     HONDA CR-V     2002-2004

NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 12V136000 NHTSA Action Number: EA11012

Potential Number of Units Affected: 554,428
Summary:
 HONDA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2002-2004 CR-V AND MODEL YEAR 2003 PILOT VEHICLES. DUE TO TENSION FROM THE COMBINATION SWITCH WIRING HARNESS, WEAR ON THE SURFACE OF THE ELECTRICAL TERMINAL CAN OCCUR, YIELDING COPPER OXIDE, WHICH INCREASES ELECTRICAL RESISTANCE. INCREASED ELECTRICAL RESISTANCE MAY CAUSE THE TERMINAL ENDS TO MELT WITHIN THE WIRING HARNESS CONNECTOR.
Consequence:
 IF THIS OCCURS, THE LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS MAY BECOME INOPERATIVE, REDUCING DRIVER VISIBILITY AND INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
Remedy:
 HONDA WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND DEALERS WILL REPAIR THE LOW BEAM TERMINAL HARNESS OR REPLACE THE LIGHTING SWITCH
