1999-2000 Honda Odysseys Recalled

Washington, DC (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has published the recall of certain 1999-2000 Honda Odysseys, manufactured between August 1998 - August 1999, because a wire harness, located within the engine compartment, could be damaged by contact with a metal pipe, possibly resulting in a blown fuse.

If a fuse blows, engine power, or operation of any or all electrical components, can be lost, including lights, windshield wipers, horn, and the anti-lock function of the brakes. A sudden loss of power or lighting, or a failure of the windshield wipers or anti-lock brake feature in bad weather, increases the risk of a crash.

Approximately 77,600 vehicles are affected by this recall.  Dealers will install a protective covering over the wire harness and metal pipe to prevent this problem. If any wires are damaged, the dealer will make the necessary repairs, and then install the protective covering.

Owner notification is expected to begin during March 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.
