Honda is issuing a recall for SUVs due to an electrical error.

The automaker is voluntarily recalling certain model year 2016 Honda Pilot vehicles. In the affected vehicles, when one of the safety systems malfunctions -- such as tire pressure monitoring, anti-lock braking or electronic stability control -- there is potential that the instrument panel will not illuminate the corresponding warning light.

However the warning lamps will illuminate when the ignition is turned off and then turned back on. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with federal regulations that set safety standards for the electronic stability control, light vehicle brake, and tire pressure monitoring systems.

Honda is recalling about 35,000 Pilot vehicles. Both, two-wheel and four-wheel drive models are included.

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will update the instrument cluster software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 27, 2015.

Owners with questions about the recall can contact Honda customer service at (888) 234-2138.
