HONDA RECALLS ACCORD AND INSIGHT FOR REAR CAMERA PROBLEMS

Honda says 232,000 Accords and Insights in the U.S. have the wrong rear-view camera software.

 — Honda is recalling 232,000 Accords and Insights in the U.S. to repair rear camera problems.

The 2018 Honda Accords and 2019 Honda Insights have rear-view camera displays programmed with the wrong software.

Honda says the screen that normally displays the images may fail to display those images when backing up.

The automaker says the screens can go blank after certain usage events, but Honda didn’t say what those events are. However, restarting the vehicles won’t bring back the camera images.

Although blank screens won’t prevent a driver from backing up, the problems do violate federal regulations concerning rear visibility.

Honda hasn’t received any reports of crashes or injuries, but dealers will need to update the software that controls the rear camera displays.

The automaker didn’t say more about the Accord and Insight recall other than recall notices will be mailed in November 2018.

Concerned owners may call Honda at 888-234-2138.
