2013-16 Honda Accord recalled for fire risk

Honda Australia has issued a recall for 4811 examples of its Accord sedan sold between March 2013 and February 2016, over concerns a faulty battery sensor could cause a fire hazard.

The Japanese manufacturer reports that affected vehicles could have an improperly manufactured battery sensor, with gaps that could allow for moisture intrusion.

If the condition occurs, moisture containing conductive substances (such as road salt) could enter the battery sensor, causing an electrical short and potentially a fire.

Recalled Accord sedans were available for sale from 18 March 2013 through 29 February 2016. A VIN list for these units can be viewed here.

Both the 2.4-litre and 3.5-litre versions of the Accord are affected by this recall, though there have been no reported incidents in Australia. A similar notice has been issued in the US, with around 1.15 million vehicles affected.

Owners of the affected vehicles will be contacted via mail once parts availability is confirmed, and will be advised to present their Accord to their local Honda dealer to have the battery sensor inspected and, if necessary, replaced.
