Hi ,rear fog lights?
Thanks a lot for the detailed information. How about rear view camera installation in main screen bcoz I noticed some people used to install from after market. One local aftermarket shop people said if they can get wiring diagram, they can fix it.The factory power tailgate function is a lot more than just the power lift module. There's a lot of integration with the car, including a different control module in the left rear quarter area, and most importantly the wiring and can-bus interface and software are different. The safety features for the power lift system are integrated with other systems, so for instance the actuator won't lift when the hatch is locked, plus the impact protection auto reverse function. The close button and related wiring are missing from the lower trim models, and the door lock interface for the remote isn't configured. You would only be able to open and close the hatch from the button in the driver's door under the best circumstances, assuming you could get the other modules in the car (instrument cluster, PCM, locks, power delivery components, interconnecting wiring) to communicate with a new gate control module.
During my years in this forum, questions about adding hi-line features to lower-trim versions come up regularly. I just want to add one or two things from a higher-line trim package... Honda builds each model/trim specifically, and there's virtually no wiring or communications ability to make even seemingly simple feature additions practical. Unfortunately, at least in my very limited personal one-time experience with the dealer salesperson, it's up to the buyer to do all their research on model features before walking in to buy a Honda. As a result, folks seem to find themselves wishing for higher-trim features only because they weren't aware when they shopped. There's plenty of trim-specific features we just don't use in ours, but there are easily enough that do get regular use to make the higher trim level very worthwhile for the way -we- use the car. Conclusion: Be an informed shopper before you first set foot on the dealer's lot.
Thanks a lot Bob , Let me go through it . Have a wonderful day.The aftermarket solutions to display new info in the main screen seem to depend on fooling the display and patching the new video into the rear-view camera input. With no camera rear-view input, I don't know the next option.
Highly-regarded member Tahoe Fever shared a copy of the factory workshop manual as PDF. It's in the last couple years, an while labelled for the 2012 car, the info is consistent through the 2015 cars. A little searching will get you that downloadable manual set, which includes the wiring diagrams for US cars.
Here is the full version of the 2012 Service manual and Electrical for the second Gen Pilots . This will work up to 2015 . WARNING : The files are big 2012 Pilot FSM - Electrical 1 of 1 - 244MB 2012 Honda Pilot Volume 1 & 2 - 344 MBwww.piloteers.org
