|Honda Recalls Over 250,000 Vehicles for Fire Risk|
Honda, in cooperation with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), has announced a recall of certain 2002 through 2006 Honda CR-Vs equipped with power windows due to a defect that could result in overheating of the window master control switch that could lead to a fire.
According to NHTSA documents, the master control switch located in the driver’s door panel is at risk of corrosion and overheating due to moisture contamination. Honda discovered this defect after receiving field reports of thermal events in the driver’s door area and recreating the observed burn patterns during controlled tests.
Until repairs have been made, Honda is recommending that owners park their vehicles outside.
