  1. 09 passenger door stuck closed after actuator replaced

    2009-2011 Pilot
    A few months ago I parked at the doctors office for my wife's appointment, door worked as normal. When we were done it was raining so I went to get the car and when she attempted to get in the door wouldn't open. Fast forward to yesterday where I managed to get the interior panel far enough off...
  2. Pioneer DEH-S4220BT in 2003 Pilot

    Audio & Electronics
    Finally got rid of the cassette adapter in the wife's Pilot and replaced the stock radio with this Pioneer. Install was pretty simple and I programmed a Maestro so she can keep her steering wheel controls. Just figured I'd post it up somewhere...
  3. Engine Stalls and Throws Codes after Engine Wash

    2003-2008 Pilot
    I just de-greased and washed the engine on my 2003 Pilot (took the engine covers off first) because during the last oil change I noticed the bottom of the engine and tranny covered in engine oil. The oil change yielded much less than the 4+ quarts it should have had. Anyway, after the wash...
  4. Phone Bluetooth cutting out

    2012-2015 Pilot
    Phone Bluetooth connection won't stay connected. Blinks on and off on vehicle. Phone Bluetooth is fine. Other items stay connected on phone so it's the vehicle. Just had car serviced, could something have been knocked loose?

  8. Cabin Light Flashes on Right Turns

    The right hand cabin light (map light?) in my 2008 Pilot flashes when I am turning right at all but the slowest speeds. I can stop it from happening with the switch (by my left knee) that controls the lights in the cabin, including those operated when the door opens, I can hear a relay clicking...
  9. TPMS System Function Error - HELP!

    2009-2011 Pilot
    Hello, recently acquired an '09 Touring AWD, and for a while it was fine, but then the TPMS error light started coming on. My wife overinflated the tires one morning when it was cold and she thought they needed air. After realizing and deflating them, the tire guy at Costco scanned the sensors...

    Wondering what everyone likes best for rubber floor mats? If you've seen other styles and wish you had different ones, etc....
  11. Spacer Lift kit

    2003-2008 Pilot
    Hello, I have an 06 Pilot EX-L. I recently installed a 2" leveling spacer lift kit. Now the axle angle is too much for the oem axles (I knew this would happen), does anyone have any brands on beefier cv axles that can handle the angle?
  12. Auxillary fuel tank

    2003-2008 Pilot
    Hello there, I have an 06 Pilot EX-L and I'm going for the overland look on it (not just looks but function as well). I was wondering if anyone has added an auxillary fuel tank where the spare tire is normally mounted? I'm planning to mount a spare to a roof basket on top (because I have...
  13. How similar is the 03 pilot to a CRV of the same year as far as off road modifications go?

    2003-2008 Pilot
    Hey there, I'm new to the SUV/ 4x4 capable world. I have recently picked up a 2003 Pilot with an amazingly low 108,000km's on the ODO and all maintenance done by a Honda dealership on time or before. The truck is in immaculate condition but I can't help but want to molest it. I'd like to start...
  14. 2019 Pilot gas mileage

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    I recently purchased a 2019 Pilot with AWD. I was curious to see what gas mileage I would be getting, both in normal and econ modes. After 2000 miles of mostly commuter driving, I see NO Difference in MPG between the two modes. Possible explanation is that since acceleration is reduced in...
  15. 2019 Passport suspension on 2019 Pilot

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Did anyone try to install Passport suspension parts on Pilot? I liked the feel of the Passport suspension (stiffer and less leaning in the corners) plus it has .5 inch more ground clearance. I would not mind to have the same on my 2019 Pilot Touring. Has anyone considered the same? The dealer I...

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Hi all, I am new to the forum, and a new Pilot owner. So far, LOVING the car. Unfortunately, I had a strange incident. There was snow on the roof, and my daughter slightly opened the sunroof, then immediately closed it again and crunched the snow with it. I cleaned things up as best as I...
  17. New Catalytic Converter or new pilot?

    2009-2011 Pilot
    I have a 2009 Pilot with 236,000 miles. The check engine light has been sputtering on and off for several months with a catalytic converter error code. Auto Zone recommended Cataclean, and it does make the check engine light go away. It costs about $30 a bottle. I probably need to replace the...
  18. My off road experience with 2017 Honda Pilot AWD

    General Discussions
    Just went out to see fall colors somewhere in Ontario, Canada and end up off road unexpectedly. I would say Honda Pilot did a really great job here, even though it isn't a proper off road vehicle. <iframe width="720" height="720"...
  19. 2016 Pilot Front Vent Issue

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Out of the blue my Pilot's front vents stopped working. Rear vents working including A/C so that's not the issue. I have already turned fan on high and cycled through the modes and you can hear it trying to cycle through but still no air comes out. Also, no air from front defrost or floor...
