Statement by American Honda Regarding Body Control Module Recall: 2018-2020 Honda Accord, 2018-2020 Honda Accord Hybrid and 2019-2020 Honda Insight

  • Approximately 737,000 vehicles are affected in the United States
  • BCM software will be updated, for free
  • No reported crashes or injuries related to this issue

Honda will voluntarily recall approximately 737,000 model-year 2018-2020 Accord and Accord Hybrid vehicles along with 2019-2020 Insight vehicles in the United States to update software in the Body Control Module (BCM). Due to a programming flaw, a certain combination of driver actions and vehicle conditions may disrupt communication between the BCM and other components, causing illumination of several warning lights and malfunction of one or more electronic components including the rear view camera display, turn signals and windshield wipers, some potentially increasing the risk of a crash. This condition may also result in noncompliance with certain federal motor vehicle safety standards. Honda has received no reports of crashes or injuries related to this issue.

Honda is announcing this recall to encourage each owner of an affected vehicle to take it to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification of this recall from Honda. Mailed notification to owners will begin in late-Jan. 2021. Owners can also determine if their specific vehicles are included in the recall by visiting or by calling (888) 234-2138.
