The outer race of the secondary shaft bearing may be broken during certain driving styles. A broken outer race may cause abnormal noise, the malfunction indicator light to turn on, and allow contact between the transmission idle gear and an electronic sensor housing within the transmission.
This could result in a short circuit causing the engine to stall. Additionally, broken pieces of the outer race or ball bearing from the secondary shaft may become lodged in the parking pawl resulting in the vehicle rolling after the driver has placed the gear in the park position. Engine stall and unexpected vehicle movement increases the risk of a crash or personal injury to persons within the path of a rolling vehicle.
Honda will notify owners and dealers will update the automatic transmission control module software free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or about august 31, 2011. Owners may contact Honda automobile customer service at 1-800-999-1009.
Honda's recall campaign number is R89. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty 1-800-424-9153), or go to Safercar.
