Honda recalling CR-V Crossovers


Undated (WXOW) - Honda is recalling more than 480,00 vehicles due to a potential fire risk.

Earlier this month Honda recalled half a million Accord vehicles because of a potential leak in a power steering hose which could cause a fire in the engine.

Now Honda is recalling CR-V Crossovers because of an electrical switch in the drivers side door that could melt and cause a fire.

The recall is for CR-V Crossovers from the 2002 to 2006 model years in the U.S., Europe and Africa .

Honda said rain and other liquids could enter through an open window and damage the master power switch on the door, leading to overheating. 

No injuries or accidents have been caused by the problem, but there have been five fires.
