Honda Australia is recalling 164 examples of its hybrid Civic because the electronic control unit (ECU) can be reset when the vehicle switches to electric mode, which makes it non-compliant with Australian Design Rules (ADRs).
This recall affects hybrid Civic e:HEV LX vehicles produced between 2022 and 2023.
“Due to a software fault the Electronic Control Unit (ECU) can be reset when the vehicle switches to electric drive,” said the company in its recall notice.
“This will erase stored vehicle fault codes and turn off the check engine light if it is activated.”
