  1. 2017 Pilot Front & Rear Dashcam / Dash cam install (AWD Touring)

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    I am running my front camera wiring exactly the same as OP. Maybe I'm thinking too much, after the install, I have this question.... how likely the wire, running along the window trim, would interfere side airbag deployment? The side-impact airbag is hiding behind A pillar. I have my wire...
  2. Windows and moonroof partially open this morning

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    The design is simply to avoid lawsuits from idiots. Mr. Dumb could be poking the window while Mr. Dumber closes the window with a remote and chops off certain parts of Mr. Dumb.
  3. Purchase 2016 Touring with 172,000 miles?

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    If it's properly maintained, 172k isn't a problem. Carfax doesn't show everything. It would be a good idea to have a mechanic to take a look. Many local shops offer such service.
  4. Reliability

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Thanks for the replies. That's good to know. We have a Honda old enough to attend middle school. Never had major mechanical issues. But, it was an old school vehicle, nothing fancy except a CD player. The new Pilot is like a computer on wheels. It carries more electronics than a Radio...
  5. Reliability

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    I've been reading almost every post for a month or two. I understand people usually only come here when they have problems and seeking for solutions. However, it scares me a bit that some have multiple issues on the very same vehicle. This indicates problems with overall reliability, not just...
  6. Passenger back up light not working....

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    My 2000 Honda Accord had similar problem. Turned out to be damaged wiring. Forgot which light it was.
  7. Android Auto

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Peter, thank you for asking. Both phone and car are perfect. The issue is my OCD ;)
  8. Flipping spare tire

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    wrapped the can in a small piece of bubble wrap then pack in a ziploc bag, so the fix flat can won’t get rusted
  9. Flipping spare tire

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    I flipped mine. Used the space to carry 2 cans of fix flat thing. It's safer to store "outside" of the vehicle.
  10. Random Electrical Snapping/Cracking Sound - Elite

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    saw this from Odyssey chat site... not sure if this is the right fix. maybe someone already posted. http://www.urvi.net/forumfiles/SN/A19030B.PDF
  11. Random Electrical Snapping/Cracking Sound - Elite

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    If this is a design issue instead of production defect, all 2016+ Pilots, soon or later, will have this problem. Am I correct? Sounds like a class action time.
  12. Android Auto

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Thanks for the reply. Before you physically disconnect the cable, do you "soft" disconnect first? I can't find any icon on the screen to soft disconnect (something like "safe disconnect" icon on a PC before yanking the USB cable).
  13. Android Auto

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    How do you disconnect Android Auto? Do you simply power off the engine then unplug the phone when you are home? Or, do you disconnect the USB cable before shutting off the engine?
  14. Key FOB

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    On top of that..... can't disable rear gate remote open is a problem for me too. My garage is few inches too low. Hopefully I won't remote open by accident while parked in garage.
  15. Honda Care

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    I used Honda care years ago. The service adviser took care of everything. Same as taking the car in under original factory warranty (at least in my case). The only difference is that you have to pay deductible.
