American Honda Motor Co. is recalling 35,406 2016 model-year Honda Pilot 2WD and 4WD SUVs because of faulty safety system warning lights, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said.
The driver may not be alerted to malfunctions in such safety systems as tire pressure monitoring, anti-lock braking and electronic stability control, NHTSA said. As a result, the condition fails to comply with federal safety standards.
The recall affects Pilot 2WD vehicles manufactured May 4-Sept. 8 of this year, along with Pilot 4WD vehicles manufactured May 7-Sept. 4 of this year.
In a released statement, Honda attributed the problem to “a software error in the combination meter.” Dealers will update the combination meter software, free of charge, to resolve the issue. Honda said it discovered the condition through internal testing.
The recall is expected to begin Nov. 27, NHTSA said. Vehicle owners can reach Honda customer service at (888) 234-2138. Honda’s number for this recall is JV7.
