backup camera recall honda

In June 2024, Honda Motor Company announced a new recall affecting over 114,000 vehicles due to potential issues with their backup cameras failing to activate in Reverse, a repeat of a previous recall from last year.

The affected vehicles include Honda Fit vehicles spanning model years 2018 to 2020, and Honda HR-V SUVs from 2019 to 2022. According to documents submitted to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Honda has identified 205 warranty claims related to this issue, with no reported injuries.

This latest Honda Fit Reverse Camera recall echoes a prior recall issued in February 2023. Owners who have already received the software update from the previous action are advised to schedule this new repair as well.

Based on NHTSA filings, Honda asserts that all 114,686 vehicles covered by the 2023 recall will require the latest corrective measures offered by the 2024 recall.

    Honda Backup Camera Recall Checklist for HRV and Fit Owners

    The issue stems from a defective power circuit within the audio system of vehicles utilizing a conventional ignition key, rather than a push-button start. Failure of the screen to initialize and show the rear-view feed when the vehicle is in Reverse increases the risk of potential collisions or injuries.

    Understanding Associated Safety Risks

    Failure of the display audio unit to boot up properly creates a serious safety concern because it obstructs the driver’s vision of the back surroundings when reversing, significantly increasing the possibility of a collision or injury. This issue has a direct influence on FMVSS 111 compliance (rear visibility).

    Determining Whether Your Vehicle Is Affected

    The recall affects Honda Fit hatchbacks from model years 2018 to 2020 and Honda HR-V SUVs from model years 2019 to 2022, with symptoms including the backup camera not displaying when the vehicle is shifted into Reverse. Specifically:

    • Honda Fit vehicles manufactured between June 12, 2017, and November 30, 2020.
    • Honda HR-V vehicles manufactured between July 7, 2018, and April 25, 2022.

    Owners of these vehicles should verify if their vehicle falls within the recall population based on production dates and VIN ranges provided. To check if your vehicle is included in any open recalls, visit NHTSA’s recall check website and enter your vehicle’s unique PIN number.

    Getting in Touch with the Manufacturer

    Notification letters will be sent to affected vehicle owners by Honda starting July 8, 2024. Upon receiving this notification, owners should promptly contact their nearest authorized Honda dealer to schedule a complimentary repair. This repair involves reprogramming the display audio unit with updated software to ensure proper functionality upon startup and restore the backup camera’s reliability.

    To schedule recall repairs, drivers can reach Honda at 888-234-2138. Honda has designated the recall with the identifiers TIQ and DIR. The original recall, issued in 2023, was numbered 23V046 under Honda’s designation 6DW. The NHTSA campaign number for the 2024 recall is 24V384.

    Taking Your Honda in for the Backup Camera Repair

    Promptly scheduling your Honda for recall repair work is essential for ensuring vehicle safety. Honda is also offering reimbursement to owners who have already incurred expenses related to this issue. Please note that under federal regulations, automakers are obligated to provide recall repair services at no charge to owners.

    Taking proactive steps to address this issue not only safeguards vehicle occupants and other road users but also ensures compliance with safety standards. Contact your nearest authorized Honda dealer to schedule your vehicle’s repair work as soon as possible.
