Honda—Odyssey—Rear Wiper Motor
What are the defects?
If the rear wiper blade is frozen due to extreme low ambient temperature, and the rear wipe is activated, a condenser within the wiper motor assembly may short circuit. This condition may occur due to reverse electromotive power from the wiper motor. As a result, the wiper motor condenser may generate heat due to high intermittent current flow and in worse case may ignite.
What are the hazards?
What should consumers do?
Honda will contact owners of affected vehicles by mail.
