Honda Motor said on Tuesday it was recalling 1.79 million vehicles globally in four separate recalls, including some linked to reported fires.

The recalls includes 1.4 million vehicles in the United States.

The automaker said one recall covers 268,000 2002-2006 model year CR-V vehicles in the United States to replace power window master switches. The automaker said there had been no reported injuries, but 16 fires reported that are associated with the issue.

Honda carried out a prior recall of the power window master switches in 2012. The new recall will address the moisture-related failures of switches repaired under the earlier recall.

The automaker is also recalling about 735,000 U.S. 2018-2020 Accord, Accord Hybrid, and 2019-2020 Insight vehicles to update the Body Control Module software. A programming fault could disrupt communication resulting in the illumination of several warning lights and malfunction of electronic components, it said, including “the rear view camera display, turn signals, and windshield wipers.”

Honda is also conducting two recalls covering 430,000 U.S. vehicles in 22 U.S. states and the District of Columbia with enough road salt use to inspect and potentially replace front drive shafts. Both are in response to possible breakage of the drive shafts because of corrosion. No injuries have been reported in relation to any of the recalls, the automaker said.

Honda said repair parts are not available for all automobiles involved in the drive shaft recalls. The recalls cover some 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid, 2007-2014 Honda Fit, 2013-2015 Acura ILX.

2013 Acura ILX Hybrid and 2013-2015 Honda Accord vehicles. No accidents have been reported in the drive shaft or software recalls.
