Honda will be contacting the owners of certain 2018-2020 Honda Odyssey minivans because of a problem affecting the electrical system in their vehicles.
According to the defect report, the routing of the third row seating accessory power could become pinched between the uni-body and the rear trim panel. The pinch could damage the wire, expose the wiring and cause an electrical short. An intermittent electrical short could overheat the wires and increase the risk of a fire.
Those receiving notices will be asked to return to their dealerships to have the third row seat accessory power outlet wire harness inspected and replaced as necessary. Undamaged wiring and new wiring will be rerouted and a protective tape will be applied. Honda’s number for this recall is T6U and the NHTSA campaign number is 20V-066.
