Honda recalls 353K Accord sedans over windshield wiper motor

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Honda Motor Co. is recalling 353,000 Accord sedans over possible corrosion in the windshield wiper motor.

Honda said Wednesday the recall involves Accords from the 2003 model year. The automaker says water could enter an area near the windshield wiper motor and cause corrosion.

The corrosion could cause the electrical circuit breaker inside the motor area to fail and could prevent the motor from working, potentially leading to a crash.

No injuries or crashes have been attributed to the wiper problem.

Dealers will inspect the windshield wiper motor and install a cover over the motor if no signs of corrosion are present. If there is corrosion, they will replace the motor.

Owners may contact Honda at (800) 999-1009.
