Problem with the 'MICU' "Mutliplex Integrated Control Unit"

Remember those FLAT BATTERY, BATTERY FLAT threads?

Well this is why!!!

IF you didnt get the letter I am confident if you phoned the dealer and described the fact you got the same problem they would check your car out for you :)

I will scan the letter in tomorrow if you wanna see it.

Type R MICU

Anyone else recieved a letter from Honda yesterday recalling their car for a MICU fault. Looks like a software upgrade to stop the battery from running flat when you have locked your car.

No I haven't yet, my cars a 57 plate (Sept 07), I take it that it must be all early CTR's? saying that I did run my car details through Hondas website for any recalls and it came up with no updates required.

Hi,
My letter arrived last Thurs - booked in for Fri.
Is this a software/firmware upgrade or a replacement part? The girl on the service desk said it was a 'major' job.

i was at the dealers for 2 hours, took them about 20 minutes to do the actual work cos they just had a new design put in so you can see into the working bays! :) an hour is to tide them over is all.

my dealers just booked me in for a temp sensor replacement which will take "45" minutes due to the temp being listed wrongly after this micu swapout.
