Honda Recalls Another 88,000 Vehicles With Rearview Camera Issues in Canada

Published on June 28, 2023 in Recalls by Guillaume Rivard

Rear-view cameras have been mandatory on all new vehicles in Canada for several years now. They’re great for preventing a number of collisions—at least when they work properly. Reliability is a major concern, as evidenced by the growing list of recalls to fix rear-view camera issues.

Honda is giving us another example this week. The Japanese automaker is recalling approximately 1.2 million vehicles globally, including 88,228 in Canada.

In some cases, the terminals on the coaxial cable for the centre display may not have been manufactured correctly. As a result, the display could lose its connection, and the rear-view camera image may not appear when the transmission is shifted into reverse.

Affected models include the 2018-2023 Odyssey, 2019-2022 Pilot and 2019-2023 Passport. The next-generation 2023 Pilot doesn’t have the same problem, it seems.

Honda will notify owners by mail in the coming weeks and advise them to take their vehicle to a dealership to replace the media oriented systems transport (MOST) cable harness and install a cover over the centre display connector.

Earlier this year, Honda had to recall nearly 24,000 vehicles in Canada—2018-2020 Fit and 2019-2022 HR-V models—because the battery voltage could drop when starting the engine and result in the centre display remaining black. Once again, this would cause the rear-view image not to appear when reversing.

In this case, however, the remedy is a simple software update to the display.
