Honda is recalling 344,000 Odyssey minivans for a sensor issue that can cause the vehicle to brake on its own. Honda automaker said Friday that a software and parts problem can cause hydraulic pressure to build in the braking system, “heavy and unexpected braking without the driver pressing on the brake pedal and without illumination of the brake lamps,” the company said. Honda said it is not aware of any crashes or injuries from this issue.

Honda says it will replace a “yaw sensor.”  The fix involves installing a new sensor. But those sensors won’t be available until the spring of 2014.

In the meantime, Honda said customers should start their minivans with the wheels facing straight ahead, allowing the system to properly calibrate. Customers who experience the unexpected braking should stop and restart the minivan.
