  2. Permanently disable Auto Stop Start!

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Sounds like it might not be making great contact...then again yours is a 2017, it may be a little different than my 2016. I would think that they would not change the design. Don't give up hope, I think there is a solution for you, you may need to get a multi-meter out and test it a bit. If you...

    If you had a way to place a switch in the circuit it could be toggled that way using a standard toggle switch instead of the pilot's built-in momentary switch. I just wanted to maintain the factory look but I suppose you could hide a toggle switch somewhere.

    I attempted Hondaguy92's by just disconnecting the wire, but that did not work on my pilot. In my tests with a multi-meter I found that the button, which is normally LOW (0 Volts), when pressed went HIGH (12 v). Then I found that the green wire was 12v when the ignition was on so connecting the...

    To answer your question, yes the light on the dash should light up each time the pilot is started if this is performed correctly. I believe you may have seen that result because the yellow wire is grounded when not pressed therefore the 12v high trigger may not have been seen by simply using a...

    That is how ours functions too. The issue we have had is that the delay between releasing the brake and moving forward has in some cases created “hairy” situations. In this case it actually did not re-start as you would expect which is enough to make me say never try that again. Even if you...

  13. Permanently disable Auto Stop Start!

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Quick note on why I did this: Since the purchase of my wife’s 2016 Elite Pilot we have struggled to like the auto stop/start feature. With her and the kids always running around she sometimes forgets to manually disable it but when it shuts the car down she hits the button and moves on. I...
