Honda will voluntarily recall 2,920 units of 2016 model-year Pilot vehicles in Canada to update the instrument panel gauge software free of charge. No market occurrences have been reported related to this non-compliance issue, which was discovered through internal testing.
The vehicle’s instrument panel gauge software contains an error that may result in conditions that are non-compliant with the requirements of the Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (CMVSS). The software error may prevent warning lights such as the VSA, ABS, and BRAKE warning lights from illuminating on the instrument panel gauge when required. To address this issue, an instrument panel gauge software update is available.
Honda is announcing this recall to encourage all owners who purchased an affected vehicle to take it to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification of this recall from Honda. Mailed notification to customers is scheduled to begin in November 2015. Additionally, owners of 2016 Pilot vehicles can determine if their vehicle requires repair by going to www.honda.ca/recalls or by calling 1-888-9HONDA9.
