Statement by Honda Canada Regarding Passenger Side Curtain Airbag Recall: 2014 Honda Odyssey

MARKHAM, ON, May 2, 2014 /CNW/ - Honda will voluntarily recall 1,501 units of 2014 model-year Odyssey vehicles in Canada to repair the electrical coupler, a component in the passenger side curtain airbag system, free of charge. During assembly of the electrical coupler for the passenger side curtain airbag, the shorting terminal, which is used to prevent deployment of the airbag before it is assembled into the vehicle, may have been damaged. A damaged shorting terminal may cause the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) indicator to illuminate as well as prohibit the side curtain airbag from deploying during a crash, increasing the risk of injury. No crashes or injuries have been reported related to this issue, which was discovered through warranty repairs.

Honda is announcing this recall to encourage all owners of affected vehicles to take their vehicles to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification of this recall from Honda. Mailed notification to customers will begin in May, 2014. In addition to contacting customers by mail, owners of these vehicles will be able to determine if their vehicles require repair by going to or by calling 1-888-9HONDA9.
