Honda/Acura Releases New Parts Information: UPDATE

Honda and Acura released an updated parts position statement: Driver Assist / Safety Systems May Fail Unless OE Parts Used. This statement supersedes the original publication issued November 2014. Whereas the old position statement listed only a limited number of specific models, the new statement has been broadened to cover all Honda and Acura vehicles equipped with the options listed in the original position statement.

Included in the parts information update is the fact that some parts, like the grille on a vehicle equipped with a collision mitigating brake system, are different than vehicles without a collision mitigating brake system. In this example, if the wrong grille is installed, it will set a DTC and prevent the system from functioning correctly.
