Honda is recalling more than 300,000 Odyssey vehicles from the 2003-2004 model years and about 56,000 Acura MDX vehicles from 2003 in the U.S. to address potential malfunctions of the airbag system due to electrical interference.
To prevent malfunction, an electrical noise filter will be installed adjacent to the SRS control unit, free of charge, Honda said.
Honda said it has received an increasing number of complaints in recent months of inadvertent airbag deployment in the vehicles, which are equipped with SRS control units that contain computer chips similar to those used in airbag system control units installed in other manufacturers’ vehicles that were recalled in the last year.
No crashes have been reported to Honda related to this issue.
Honda encourages owners to take their vehicles to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification of this recall from Honda.
