Recall Notice

LemonFree has found some important recall information regarding 2008 Honda Element vehicles

2008 Honda Element (9/5/2012)  

Campaign Number: 12V436000

Component Name: ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:WIRING

Manufacturer: Honda (American Honda Motor Co.)

Description: Honda is recalling certain model year 2007 through 2011 Element passenger vehicles equipped with an accessory trailer hitch wiring harness. The wire that supplies power to the trailer turn signal lights was inadvertently switched with the stop lamp wire. As a result the turn signals only illuminate when the brake lamps are illuminated. This does not comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."

Defect: Without trailer turn signal illumination, the driver's intent is not communicated, potentially increasing the risk of a crash.

Corrective Action: Honda will notify owners, and dealers will repair the vehicles free of charge. The safety recall began on September 20, 2012. Owners may contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.

Campaign Number: 10V098000

Component Name: SERVICE BRAKES, AIR

Manufacturer: Honda (American Honda Motor Co.)
