Multiple warning lights

This morning wifey called me and said that there were multiple warning lights on the car and it was beeping angrily at her. Luckily, this malfunction occured within a mile of the house. I went to swap cars with her and drove it home to deal with it further. The warning lights were:

-road departure mitigation system warning
-trailer stability assist warning
-hill start assist warning
-vehicle stability assist warning
-emissions system control warning

Of course on the drive to the dealer, about two minutes away from pulling in, the warnings disappeared. Luckily, atleast I took pictures.

Took it into dealer, they said may be alternator but will call me with updates.

This happened before to me as well. Likewise, the warnings disappear on its own. I didn't bring it into the dealership since these warnings never came back.

I had this happen to me as well and the vehicle eventually stalled. The vehicle had to be towed to the dealership. They replaced all of the injectors, fuel sensors and some other components. It seemed like it was fixed for about two weeks but since then the vehicle has hiccuped a few more times and due back in the dealership next week. I don't think the dealership or HONDA has a real handle on what is going on with the vehicle.

Was she driving it when it happened?

I had the warnings, too, and the car wouldn't start. Bad cell in the battery. Another member here had the same problem.

It has happened twice now. Both times we were driving it. After the warning lights the car went into limp mode, where it feels like it has only half power. The first time the vehicle eventually stalled and had to be towed. The second time I drove it to the dealership. The first time they replaced the injectors, fuel sensor/s and something else which I can't remember. The second time they reset the engine management system and took it out of limp mode. It is booked in to to get the valves adjusted next time. It seems like they really don't know what's going on.

Update:
We took it to the dealer (of course all the warning lights were gone) and they looked into it, said they spoke with honda engineers, told me they did something with the software as far as either updating or flashing it...not sure. the electrical components tested out fine, including battery and alternator. Nobody really seemed exactly sure what this was. When the warnings were on, the car seemed to drive fine. No starting problems. Car has been fine for past couple days since. They said they had a 2016 model that had similar symptoms a few weeks prior but they had a bad alternator.

Subscribed. This was happen to me as well all warning light WifeyMobile mentioned. But it showed only after starting the Pilot. Parked it before work around (8am) started it again after work (5pm) then multiple light came on one afternoon then after couple of night suddenly the warning light went off and everything went back to normal its on the second day now that I am observing the Pilot. Hopefully it wont be happening again. :-( So far almost a year of use this is the only issue i experience and I am planning to own my pilot for a longest time.

P.S. I'm from Jasper Alberta Canada and its winter cold in here now around -20c to -25c when it happen. Wondering if the cold temperature is the reason why this is happening.

@scrubber I think I felt the same LIMP mode you've experienced as well when the lights are on. and went back to normal when all the codes/warnings cleared on the dash :-(

Not sure where you live but many places will read codes/check codes for free - I think the countries of Canada and California have some laws about NOT doing this. If nothing else and you like the idea of having information and not at the mercy of guessing/taking the "shop's word" on what is going on - you can buy a simple code reader for not that much money.

Don't take this the wrong way - or anyone else posting in this thread - This thread is nothing but "guessing" and throwing out ideas/what happened. Even if you have the same code as someone else, what fixed their issue might not work for you.

Example: A "P0420" code, there is a laundry list of tests that should be done before replacing anything. It "could be" the converter, a bad injector, a lazy O2 sensor, a bad component in the ignition system........and I could keep going
