Minor Voltage Spikes Causing Major Shutdowns in Clarity Fuel Cell Cars

There’s something defective in the Clarity Fuel Cell’s ECU that is causing a full-on panic over minor variances in voltage, shutting down the fuel cell stack and prompting a recall.

Combustion engines need gas. EVs need electricity. And the Clarity Fuel Cell needs, well, fuel cells.

Honda issued a similar recall back in February, but owners are still complaining about a sudden loss of power.

The Clarity Fuel Cell can only be leased in California and must be repaired at one of 12 authorized dealerships in the state.
