    This is a common and pretty widespread issue so Honda had issued a Safety Recall. This was deemed as potential defect with the lighting combination switch on certain 2002 to 2008 Jazz.

    This Safety recall was issued by Honda on 21-06-11, Bulletin No SL-10-002-02. To kick start this recall Honda did start ailing owners way back in February 2011 to get customers booked in whilst Honda got the rectification kits to all dealers.

    What are the Symptom?

    Headlight low beam may not come on or fail without warning.

    What was the cause of this issue?

    A terminal in the combination switch 16P harness connector can overheat and may cause the low beam headlights to fail. The main beam will continue to work as normal.

    The Fix

    The corrective action is to inspect the combination light switch wire harness 16P connector and, depending on inspection result, install a combination light switch wire kit (Kit 1) or a combination light switch repair kit (Kit 2 ). According to Honda the vast majority of cases would require the Kit 1 to resolve this issue , its less than one percent the KIt 2 repair kit will be used.

    I can remember doing these whilst at Honda. It seemed like everyday there was more and more Jazz's being booked in. Although we never got 3 hours to do them, our garage would only allocate 0.8 hours for the job.

    is it for every Jazz 2004-2008? or just specified VIN's? how can check if it's been done previously on my car? I assume that it's free, any limits ie. age or mileage?
