Japanese automaker Honda issued a recall on over 750,000 vehicles Tuesday after discovering a problem with the airbag sensor in several popular models.
A filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said inspectors found a malfunction in the front passenger seat weight detector, which could crack and fail to suppress an airbag.
According to the NHTSA, Honda said a supplier replaced a material found in the circuit board of the weight sensor after a natural disaster impeded manufacturing at a Honda subcontractor. The replacement material was more prone to malfunctioning.
In December, Honda recalled over 2.5 million cars in the U.S. over a malfunction in the fuel pump.
