Honda Recalling 124,000 Vehicles With Defective Brake Lights

Not known if recall includes export models.

TOKYO (AP) - Honda Motor Co. is recalling more than 124,300 vehicles in Japan with defective brake lights, the company said.

Honda is recalling 84,554 Acty and 39,768 VAMOS Hobio minivans produced between Feb. 20, 2002 and June 6, 2006.

The company said it decided to recall the vehicles because the improper installment of bulbs could cause a fuse blowout and possible failure to light up brake lights or to activate an alarm horn.

Separately, Nissan Diesel Motor Co. said it is recalling 6,490 trucks in 13 models produced between Nov. 15, 2004 and Jan. 30 this year, because of defective fuel piping, the company said in a statement.

The defects could trigger a fuel leakage from a loose connection, the company said.

It was not immediately known if the recalls included any export models.
