Honda Accords being recalled for issue that could increase fire risk

Honda is recalling a potential 1.14 million of its Accord vehicles, due to a faulty battery sensor that could increase the risk of a fire.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the cars affected are certain Accord from 2013 to 2016, and said that the case for the battery sensor, which is a part of the battery management system, may allow water to get in, and potentially causing an electrical short.

According to the statement, remedy parts are currently unavailable, and dealers will perform an interim remedy of applying adhesive to the case, in order to prevent water intrusion. Interim notices are expected to be mailed on July 31, with a second notice being sent out, once a permanent remedy is ready.

Remey work, according to the statement, will be done free of charge.
