Have you tried simply jumping it to start it? When was it last time it ran?

Usually clicking is b/c it doesn't have enough Cranking amps.

I’ve had numerous silly issues like this over years. Last summer car sporadically went into safe mode while driving for no reason. Sirius satellite radio needing replacement. Some type of belt replacement needed. Rear windows stuck down and needed redo. Do you know is the 2016 model year was just more problematic than other later years? I’m ready to give this one up but really like the size and feel of the car. So later pilot models have better rep?

Car battery might be bad or not making good contact. Clean and retighten the cables on the posts. Check the ground cables to see if any are corroded, loose, broken.

Does the remote start work? Might just be that stupid rock hard pedal issue and you're just not pressing it hard enough.

Remote start didn’t work either. The brake was so hard to push down. After letting it sit for 3 hours or took a charge amd all kinds of errors came up. Hill assist failure abs failure and a bunch more towed it to dealer

Brake pedals are normally hard to depress if the engine hasn't been running for a long time and the power assist accumulator has lost vacuum. Pretty much every car on the road with power brakes is like that. The accumulator stores enough vacuum so if the engine stalls on the road you can apply the brakes normally maybe once or twice to get pulled over, but each time you apply and release the brake you use up that reserve. Once that reserve is gone it may take much more effort to apply the brakes.

This wouldn’t have been the case. I had been driving all morning then it stuck in grocery store. I had only been inside 15 minutes and the pedal was all locked up. Then all the clicking and freezing of the engine gauges. The needles all wiggled then who dash shutdown.

Seen a few boosters cause this issue on 3rd gen pilots, if the back of the master is wet, replace it too.
