We had similar problem with our 05 Pilot EXL. Let me give the time line of things and hope it will not be too much information. Original battery, if it really matters.
Starting from day 1 as the day the issue occurred.
Day 1: I was out on a biz trip, and my wife was driving the pilot. According to her, whole bunch of lights, including ABS and (!), went on.
Day 2: She drove the car for a couple of very short trips, the lights were still on.
Day 3 - 4: The polit was parked and she drove my car.
Day 5: I was back in town and she told me the issue while we were on our way home from the airport. I called the Honda/Accura specialty shop(not a dealer) we normally have all the services done and scheduled an appointment.
Day 6: I started the car in the morning, no lights were on. Appointment was cancelled but I was suspicious. Later, the lights came back again and this time, they include the parking break light while the parking break light was not applied.
Day 8: Brought the car to the shop and they did some check and announced that it is mechanically sound about all those things. The shop suspected that the car was involved in some accident/impact around the front hood/wheel on the passenger side. We never had anything that near the level they described. They said the fuse/connection box is there and it could have some loose connections. The cost of opening it up and check/fix would be $300+. We decided that we need the car for that week and scheduled to bring it back in later.
Day 9 - 11: We drove the car as usual, the lights were on and off from time to time.
Day 12 or 13: All lights were gone.
Now it has been 2+ weeks since all warning lights were gone, everything has been okay.
BTW, Just in case this might be related. About two or three months ago, we had the warning about gas tank cap. It was gone after the second tank of gas.
The gas cap warning should be un-related unless you have damaged electrical connections somewhere. (if the vehicle WAS in a accident) One item I was told to check was the brake fluid level. If you are on the raggedy edge of the min. allowable brake fluid level than simply increased temperature outside may be causing fluid expansion and causing your fluid level to go up and down right around the sensor threashold. Just cheap insurance, check to make sure you are well over the min. line on your brake fluid reservoir. Supposedly all the same lights will come on if the brake fluid gets low as the brake fluid is the life blood of the traction control/abs/brake system.
