What’s the Problem?
This recall affects Honda Pilot SUVs from model years 2019-2021, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Incorrect instrument panel control module software on the recalled vehicles can cause the instrument panel to not display critical information, such as engine oil pressure, speedometer, and gear selector position until the next ignition cycle, NHTSA said. Defective software could also prevent the rearview camera image from displaying.
As such, affected Honda Pilot vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) numbers 101, “Control and Displays” and 111, “Rearview Mirrors.” Operating a vehicle without a functioning instrument panel or rearview camera display increases the risk of a crash, according to the NHTSA.
Honda is notifying owners and dealers will reprogram the instrument panel control module software, free of charge.
This recall began on September 23, 2020.
