Software mistakes in over 770,000 Honda cars can suddenly disable the power windows, turn signals, windshield wipers, defroster, and rearview cameras. That's a lot of very important things. Honda has issued a recall after discovering electrical disruptions in the body control module's controller area network or CAN. Although I guess in this case it's more like a CAN'T, amirite?

About The Recall

  • The body control modules were provided by Sumitomo Electric Wiring Systems and will receive a software update as part of the recall.
  • The issue affects the 2018-2020 Accord and Accord Hybrid, as well as the 2019-2020 Insight.
  • The recall number is X95 and is expected to begin on January 18th, 2021.
