As of May 14, the automaker said that it has received 41 warranty claims, six unprompted airbag deployments, and three reports of injuries related to the airbags.

The recall covers approximately 119,000 2019 Honda CR-V crossover SUVs and will begin in early July.

The issue is separate from a series of recalls Honda has conducted over the last decade to replace more than 21 million defective Takata air bag inflators in about 12.9 million U.S. vehicles that Honda has said are responsible for 16 United States deaths, Reuters said. Honda said metal burrs in the steering wheel's interior surface can also cause components to overheat and short circuit.

In a statement, Honda said that signs of a damaged wiring harness include malfunctioning steering wheel control buttons, unexpected horn sounding, or an airbag warning light.

So far, there are no reports of crashes tied to the problem.

Honda will remedy the problem by installing a new steering wheel wiring harness, along with a new supplemental restraint system cable reel, according to Reuters. The replacement parts for the recall will be made available by the end of May 2019, Honda said. Honda's number for the recall is R4S.

Shares of Honda stock were down 0.74 percent as of 11:02 a.m. ET on Thursday.

Honda is recalling 137,000 units of its popular CR-V SUV to address a potential safety defect that could cause the vehicle's driver air bag to deploy inadvertently.
