DETROIT — Honda says it is recalling more than 550,000 CR-V and Pilot SUVs because the low-beam headlights can fail.

The automaker says it will fix a problem with the headlight wiring. Affected vehicles include 2002-2004 CR-Vs and 2003 Pilots.

Honda says there isn't enough slack in the wiring leading to the headlight switch. Over time the wires can work their way loose and cut off the low-beam lights. No crashes or injuries have been reported due to the problem.

Owners will get recall notices in the mail starting in late April.

People can check to see if their SUVs are part of the recall by going to www.recalls.honda.com or by calling (800) 999-1009 and picking option four.
