Honda recalls 81,000 Accord sedans for wiring problem

Honda Motor Co. announced on Wednesday a recall of 81,000 of its 2004-2005 Accord sedans because of a problem with an air bag warning light.

A spokesperson was not able to immediately confirm if the recall applied to cars in Canada.

The company said the wiring harness for the seat position sensor was improperly attached and may have been overtightened. If the sensor wire fails, the air bag would fully inflate, putting smaller drivers at risk of injury.

No injuries linked with the problem have been reported to the company.

Dealers are expected to repair the wiring subharness starting next month, the company said.
