Universal Honda Limited recalls certain CR-V models of passenger vehicles
December 23, 2020
Universal Honda Limited is carrying out a voluntary recall of certain models of its Honda, CR-V passenger vehicles.
The affected vehicles were manufactured between 2002 and 2006.
The safety issue identified is that in 2012 Butyl tape was applied to the power window master switch (PWMS) as part of a market safety recall to prevent liquid exposure to the inside of the PWMS, however a gap could exist between the applied Butyl tape and PWMS case, liquid could then accumulate in that gap and over time this could lead to liquid entering into the PWMS.
Once liquid enters into the PWMS a short circuit could occur, after that there is a possibility that migration advances and heat is generated causing the PWMS to melt and expand, this could then lead to the PWMS and adjacent parts to overheat, smoke and in worst case catch fire.
The recall affects 2,153 vehicles in the Republic of Ireland.
What to do:
Universal Honda Limited will directly contact all affected customers advising them to make an appointment with their local Honda Dealer or Authorised Repairer where any necessary work will be carried out.
