SERVICE BRAKES

6/19/2015 - KENNESAW, GA
THE CONTACT OWNS A 2013 HONDA ACCORD. WHILE DRIVING APPROXIMATELY 55 MPH WITH THE CRUISE CONTROL ACTIVATED, THE CRUISE CONTROL WOULD NOT DEACTIVATE AND THE VEHICLE WOULD NOT SLOW DOWN OR STOP WHEN THE BRAKES WERE APPLIED. THE VEHICLE PROCEEDED THROUGH A RED LIGHT AND CRASHED INTO TWO OTHER VEHICLES. A POLICE REPORT WAS FILED AND THERE WERE NO INJURIES REPORTED. PRIOR TO ACTIVATING THE CRUISE CONTROL, THE BRAKES OPERATED NORMALLY. THE CAUSE OF THE FAILURE WAS NOT DETERMINED. THE MANUFACTURER WAS NOT NOTIFIED. THE FAILURE MILEAGE WAS 15,000.

STEERING

6/19/2015 - HYDE PARK, MA
SO THIS HAS NOW HAPPENED 3 TIMES IN THE LAST FEW MONTHS, ONCE ABOUT A MONTH AGO AND TWICE LAST WEEK (AFTER HAVING THE CAR DROPPED OFF TO FIX THE BRAKE TSB THAT CAUSES A SQUEAK ON TURNS). I WILL BE DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD FROM AGGRESSIVE TO NORMAL DRIVING AND ALL OF A SUDDEN I LOOK AT MY DASH ONLY TO SEE ALL THE WARNING LIGHTS ON. ONCE THIS HAPPENS YOU CAN SEE THE MPG INDICATOR HAS A DELAY, A CHANGE IN BEHAVIOR OF THE CARS CONTROLS, LDW SWITCH NO LONGER FUNCTIONS, AND LDW AND FCW STOP WORKING. THE CAR CONTINUES TO DRIVE BUT YOU CAN TELL ALL ELECTRONICS ARE EXPERIENCING A DELAY OR ISSUE WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE NAVI AND RADIO. SOME OF THE LIGHTS GO AWAY AND COME BACK AS YOU DRIVE, AND AFTER TURNING THE CAR ON AND OFF A FEW TIMES ALL LIGHTS TURN OFF WITH THE EXCEPTION OF FCW AND LDW WITH THE "FCW SYSTEM FAILURE" MESSAGE WHICH REMAIN, THAT GOES AWAY AFTER A FEW HOURS.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

6/14/2015 - SPRINGFIELD, IL
WHEN I STARTED MY CAR TODAY I GOT A BLINKING LIGHT ON THE DASH THAT LOOKED LIKE A BATTERY. I LOOKED IT UP IN THE OWNER'S MANUAL AND IT SAID "BATTERY NOT CHARGING" AND TO "CONTACT THE DEALER IMMEDIATELY FOR REPAIRS". I'LL CALL THEM TOMORROW. ABOUT A MONTH AGO, MY CAR WOULDN'T START. I HAD TO GET IT JUMPED AND LATER TOOK IT IN. THEY REPLACED AN UNDER DASH RELAY. MY CAR HAS BEEN OK OTHERWISE.

ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL

6/14/2015 - FREDERICKSBURG, VA
HAD GOTTEN BACK IN MY CAR AFTER A STOP AT A RETAIL STORE. WHEN I TURNED THE CAR ON THE TIRE PRESSURE LIGHT WAS BLINKING, THE ELECTRIC POWER STEERING LIGHT WAS ON, AND THE VEHICLE STABILITY ASSIST LIGHT WAS ON. I PULLED OVER AT ANOTHER STORE WITHIN A HALF MILE. I GOT OUT AND CHECKED THE TIRES FOR A POSSIBLE FLAT - NO PROBLEM. TURNED CAR BACK ON AND SAME SCENARIO WITH THE 3 LIGHTS ON. ONLY DIFFERENCE WAS THE TIRE PRESSURE LIGHT STOPPED FLASHING BUT STAYED ON CONTINUOUSLY. I LOOKED IN CAR MANUAL, PAGE 6 OF HONDA TECHNOLOGY REFERENCE GUIDE, UNDER THE HEADING OF MALFUNCTION INDICATORS AND IT SAID, "IF AN INDICATOR REMAINS ON, THERE MAY BE A PROBLEM; SEE YOUR DEALER". I WILL CALL MY CAR DEALER IN THE MORNING. I WANT TO STATE THAT I STILL HAD FULL CONTROL OF MY POWER STEERING. I READ OF OTHERS LOSING THE POWER STEERING BUT MINE WAS OKAY. AFTER THE SECOND STOP THE 3 MALFUNCTIONING INDICATOR LIGHTS WENT OUT.
