Honda is recalling certain model year 2017 Ridgeline AWD trucks.

On the affected vehicles, water may enter the rear wiring harness through the connector located under the truck bed drain hole, possibly causing the connection terminals to corrode.

Corrosion of the wiring harness can cause increased electrical resistance, which could unexpectedly activate the vehicle stability assist (VSA) system, increasing the risk of a crash.

Honda says that approximately 9,179 Ridgeline vehicles are impacted by this recall—all of which were manufactured between April 1, 2016 and August 11, 2016.

Honda will notify owners of the recalled trucks, and dealers will inspect the rear wiring harness and related components, replacing them as necessary, free of charge.

This recall is expected to begin on January 24, 2017. For more information, owners can contact Honda customer service at (888) 234-2138. Honda's reference number for this recall is KD3.
