5th Gen Ignition Switch Recall

I just typed this up on a local Honda/Acura board for a fellow Luder so i figured id copy and paste here for anyone else who may need it. Feel free to sticky mods!

Applies to:

Safety Recall:
Ignition Switch

(Supercedes 02-031, dated September 17, 2002)


Electrical contacts in the ignition switch can wear prematurely due to high electrical current passing through the switch. Worn out ignition contacts could cause the engine to stall without warning. Although the engine will restart in most cases, a vehicle that stalls while driving increases the risk of a crash.

-1997 Honda Accord (L4)
-1995-99 Honda Accord (L4 and V6)
-1995-00 Honda Civic
-1997 Honda CRV
-1997-00 Odyssey
-1997-99 Honda Prelude

Not every vehicle in the years and models listed above is affected by this campaign. Before beginning work, verify that the vehicle is eligible by checking at least one of the following.

-The customer has a notification letter.
-The vehicle is shown on your campaign responsiblity report.
-The vehicle is shown as eligible on a DCS or iN (Interactive Network) VIN Status Inquiry


All owners of affected vehicles will be sent a notification letter of this campaign. An example of the customer notification is at the end of this service bulletin.


Replace the electrical (ignition) switch

Reinstalling aftermarket parts(security systems, alarms, audio systems, etc.) connected to the ignition wiring is not covered under this campaign. If a customer wants a non-Honda part reinstalled, the shop that installed the part (or the customer) must do the work and assume liability. In addition, the customer is responsible for all costs associated with the non-Honda part and its installation. If you have any questions about this, please contact your District Service Manager.

This was straight from ALL-DATA.
