Airbag Recall.

I have a 2004 Accord J30A4 6MT. I was watching the news the other day and say a recall for our airbags. Just throwing that out there. You may want to check with your local Honda dealership. I plan on stopping in within the next few days. Also, my headunit went out. It works but the display no longer works. There is also a recall for these as well. I hope this helps out.

Easy Nittanys. It's JUST a forum. Sorry if I ruined your day. lol. Please do us all a favor and get over it. I would consider whining on a thread to be a little more ridiculous than double posting

Honda says device in '04-'05 sedans was incorrectly installed

WASHINGTON - Honda Motor Co. is recalling 81,000 of its 2004-2005 Accord sedans because of issues that could cause an air bag-related sensor to fail, the company said Wednesday.

Honda said in a Jan. 9 letter to the government that the wiring harness for the seat position sensor, which detects the driver's seating position and adjusts the air bag inflation pressure accordingly, was attached in the wrong location and may have been overtightened.

Honda said the sensor wire could break and cause the air bag warning light to be illuminated and prevent the sensor from working properly. When the sensor fails, the air bag system automatically moves to full inflation pressure, which could increase the risk of injury for smaller drivers in a frontal crash, the Japanese automaker said.

Honda spokesman Chris Naughton said the company was not aware of any injuries or incidents connected to the recall.

The recall is expected to begin in early February, and dealers will replace the seat position sensor wiring subharness, Honda said.

Owners can contact Honda at (800) 999-1009.

Honda Motor Co. said Friday it widened a previously announced recall to add 440,000 cars that could have a lethal airbag defect.

Affected models include the 2001-2002 Honda Accord, 2001 Civic and 2002-2003 Acura TL.

The potential defect has caused 6 known injuries and one known death, according to Honda spokesman Chris Naughton.

The recall will require the driver's side steering-wheel-mounted airbag inflator to be replaced.

In some cars, the airbag inflators may over-pressurize the inflator mechanism as the airbag is deploying, which could cause the inflator casing to rupture, according to Honda. As a result the carmaker said, "Metal fragments could pass through the cloth airbag cushion material, possibly causing an injury or fatality to vehicle occupants."

Registered owners of the vehicles in question will receive a recall notice in the mail in the next few months to schedule a repair. Honda said the owners of cars most likely to have a problem will be contacted first.

In the meantime, Honda owners can log onto the Web site www.owners.honda.com/recalls and click on the "Owner Link" to get a status of their recall. Acura owners should go to www.owners.acura.com/recalls and click on the "My Acura" link.

Honda has issued a recall notice for 2001 Honda Accord and Civic coupes and sedans in order to correct an airbag defect.

In a defect notice filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Honda explains, "In certain vehicles, the driver's airbag inflator could produce excessive internal pressure. If an affected airbag deploys, the increased internal pressure may cause the inflator to rupture. Metal fragments could pass through the airbag cushion material, possibly causing injury to vehicle occupants."

Honda dealers will replace the airbag inflator in affected vehicles, free of charge. Some 2001 Accord and Civic models were recalled over this issue last year - but Honda has recently determined that the problem affects more vehicles than originally believed. Dealers will contact owners through the mail, but Honda has not yet provided a notification schedule. Those who wish to make early repair arrangements may contact Honda at (800) 999-1009.

the best way to find out if your included in the recall to sign up at honda's owner link and just to be safe take it to the dealership. They may just check the same system you looked at, better safe then sorry tho...
