HONDA Jazz Recall
Headlights may not illuminate correctly
HONDA announced a problem with the Jazz affecting a total of 136,329 vehicles.
Due to the layout of the lighting switch wiring harness, the low beam headlight circuit can be pulled tighter than other wires. After repeated use of the headlight switch, the low beam terminal can become worn and poor electrical continuity may result from an accumulation of copper oxide. In some cases the poor continuity the poor continuity or melted terminal ends will cause the wiring harness terminal ends to melt. Poor continuity or melted terminal ends will cause the low beam head lights to become inoperative, increasing the risk of accident. Vehicles built from 22/10/2001 to 24/7/2008 are at risk.
The following remedial action is necessary to address this problem. The dealer will inspect the low beam terminal, if the terminal shows signs of melting the lighting switch and low beam terminal harness will be replaced. If the terminal is not melted the low beam terminal harness will be replaced.
