American Honda Motor Co. is recalling 9,179 2017-model year Ridgeline AWD pickup trucks so dealers can address a potential electrical issue, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The trucks involved were manufactured from April 1, 2016, to Aug. 11, 2016. Water may enter the rear wiring harness through the connector located under the truck bed drain hole, possibly causing the connection terminals to corrode, NHTSA said. Corrosion of the wiring harness can cause greater electrical resistance. This condition might unexpectedly activate the vehicle stability assist (VSA) system, increasing the risk of a crash.

Honda dealers will inspect the rear wiring harness and related components, replacing them as necessary. There will be no charge for this service.

The recall is expected to begin Jan. 24. Vehicle owners can reach Honda customer service at (888) 234-2138. Honda’s number for this recall is KD3.
