Defect at the fuel pump relay (Accord, FR-V, Jazz 2005)

Model model type model year
FR-V BE1, BE3 05
JAZZ GD1, GD5 05

The engine dies while driving.

root cause
A manufacturing defect in the fuel pump relay (PGM-FI main relay 2) can break a coil cable in the relay. If so, the fuel pump will not work and the engine may not start. If the relay fails while driving, the engine can stall without warning and lead to an accident.

ATTENTION: During the affected production phase, this part was provided by two suppliers, Denso and Mitsuba; however, only vehicles equipped with Mitsuba relays are affected.

Water ingress on the headlight (Accord 2003-2005)

Model model type model year
ACCORD 4D CL7, CL9, CN1 03, 04, 05
ACCORD TOURER CM1, CM2, CN2 03, 04, 05

Water enters the headlight and leads to the formation of condensation or fogging. In the case of HID headlights, this can also lead to a failure of the low beam.

root cause
Insufficient adhesive bond between headlight lens and housing leads to water ingress. If the vehicle is equipped with HID headlights, water can enter the HID control unit and cause the low beam to fail.

The seal between the headlight lens and housing has been improved to prevent water ingress.
