Hi,
New member, we have a 2017 Pilot with 6k miles. Funny thing happened yesterday, hopped in it, started it up and received 2 errors on the display. One was a Blind Spot information system error and the other was a Transmission Problem error. Also the back up camera would not work and on the infotainment system screen, could not select "Vehicle". I expect it's something electrical due to the unrelated messages but it drives fine. Also, the gear lights are blinking, normally they are static.

Anyone had similar experience? I reviewed several pages of the forum last night and but didn't see anything like this. Thanks for any advice, our 4th Honda, we love them.

I experienced this issue similarly: Some time ago, probably weeks ago (I've lost track of time), I experience something strange with my 2017 Honda Pilot Elite: it had display a couple of messages in the MID: "Transmission System Problem" and "Blind Spot Info System Problem". As for the first problem, at first, nothing happened, but then later on after many days, the reverse gear was inoperable. As for the second problem, blind spot system was inoperable. We also lost rearview camera throughout the issues. Before taking the car to a Honda dealership, I decided to take an OBD2 reader and tried to view any stored DTC. I didn't see any check engine code or transmission related code. So I decided to reset the
heck engine light, even though there's not really a check engine light. Thee problem has gone away, came back in about a day or so, repeated the reset check engine light, then gone away and hasn't come back again. I'm eagerly waiting for the issue to come back again so that I can take it to the dealership. I already emailed the Honda dealership's service consultant, but I received no response back for more than a week since I sent the email. Anybody else with similar issue that actually got Honda to resolve?

We got thesame blindspotnd transmission errors a coupleof days ago. The vehicle didnt seem to have any transmission problem and was going fine. Looked like malfnction with sensors or something, because the errors stopped coming. Then again they staryed poppin up from yesterday,but now my reverse gear has a problem. I was not able to reverse the vehicle for some time. Never expected this frm a Honda.

Blind spot system? We don’t have that other than passenger side camera by side view mirror.
That's probably because you don't have Touring or Elite trims that have blind spot system.

If you must use the car, reset the system by using OBD2 reader and clear the check engine light, even though there isn't any check engine light. That worked for me. Keep the OBD2 reader in the car in case you lose blind spot, reverse camera, and reverse gear, you'll need to reset again. Otherwise, I'd strongly suggest you to get the car towed to the nearest Honda dealership and get them to examine this issue. My experience with it is that it happened only once in a span of days and if it does happen again in the near future, I'd get the car towed and let Honda know this is a real problem. My local Honda dealership had no record of this ever happening to any Honda Pilot that they're aware of according to the service consultant.

Please do follow up with what your situation is later down the road so that others know what to expect.

Ok this just happen to my 2016 Pilot Elite with 99437 miles. While pressing the gas to pass another car the vehicle made a loud clunk noise and the RPM's dropped to zero and I received a transmission, emissions and blind spot warning alarms. I was able to get the car to the dealership and they are telling me it the transmission control module that needs replaced on the vehicle. I hope this fixed the problem as I am about 500 miles from my car being out of the bumper to bumper warranty.

Sounds like you got an extended warranty? Because Honda's standard powertrain warranty is 5 years or 60K miles, whichever comes first.

I am having the same problem. Including the tailgate goes in and out. Reverse won't push and I have to put it in drive move forward then reverse, blind spot goes in and out. Side driver mirror has to be adjusted every time I get in, and one time the transmission light came on. I am at 75000 miles. Its been shifting hard since I got it. Every time I bring it in they say that they cannot find anything. They are saying that it's the way I drive, but none of my other vehicles did that.

I just looked at the solution. I am concerned that if the problem is with a screw "not torqued properly " then Honda should cover the cost. Honda made the car, honda didn't torque the screw properly. So why do I have to pay to correct it?
