What is a VIN?

VIN stands for "Vehicle Identification Number" and is unique to your Honda. This sequence of seventeen letters and numbers is specific to your vehicle and reports its engine size, body style, model year, transmission type, color, etc. All vehicles newer than 1980 come with a VIN.

Where can I find my VIN?

Your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) can be found on a small, metal plate attached toward the top of the the driver's side of the dashboard. This small, metal tag is designed to remain visible through the windshield to view/access easily. Every car is required to have one of these correctly-located small, metal plates and it is illegal to remove or change this plate. If this tag is missing, chances are the vehicle has been repaired, or more likely, stolen.

Background

An internal component in the SRS unit can be susceptible to corrosion, which can potentially result in the SRS unit failing. If the SRS unit does fail, the SRS indicator can come on. If the vehicle is involved in a collision and the SRS indicator is on because of the SRS unit failure, the airbags will not deploy, which increases the risk of injury.

Affected Vehicles

2008-2010 Accord Sedans

Replace the SRS control unit

Part Information

Parts are not available in sufficient quantities to support this recall. Customers will initially be advised to visit the dealer only if their vehicle's SRS light is illuminated. Once sufficient parts become available (expected to be Fall 2016), customers will be notified again to visit their dealer for their SRS control unit replacement.

Service Bulletin

A preliminary version of bulletin 16-006, Safety Recall: 2008-2010 Accord SRS Unit Replacement has been prepared to support this recall. This version will instruct dealers to verify the light on condition and then check for diagnostic codes. If there are any codes indicating an internal SRS unit failure, the unit will be replaced. All other conditions will be addressed as they become applicable. Once parts are sufficiently available, the bulletin will be revised to reflect SRS control unit replacement in affected vehicles, regardless of whether or not internal failure codes are set.

Unsold Unit Treatment

All unsold, affected units most be repaired prior to sale of the car.

Customer Notification

Customer notification is planned for March 2016.
