Hey y’all. We have a 2019 Honda Pilot Elite. We purchased it used but under 15k miles and in excellent condition. We have noticed that at highway speeds, intermittently, there’s this annoying AF humming noise. At first I thought it was the sunroof, but we have a friend who is a master technician at Honda and said it’s not that. He's tried to many different things. Then he said some hood parts were loose and thought it was that. No luck. I swear it’s driving me nuts, and i'm going to be commuting more and the sound is starting to be heard over the radio. Has anyone else had this? Video for the sound. Could it be something else? I searched in the group and online and saw some stuff about wheel bearings but i'm not sure that's it.

Here's a link to the video since I couldn't upload it here: 2019 Humming Noise

On another Honda I owned, we used to have that noise occur at highway speeds. It was caused by the weather strip across the top of the windshield.

How did you fix it??
Never did. Traded.
Just to verify that's where it's coming from, you might try some wide painter's tape (blue) across the top to see it that prevents it. If it does, then search for a fix.

Yeah, i'm getting to that point too. Honestly. I texted your response to my friend and unfortunately he said that is the first thing he checked. :(

You don't have any aftermarket speakers do you? I'm thinking about the Active Noise Cancelation system which can be fussy with any sound system changes.

Any update on this? I just discovered this site and registered just for this question. It was a dead link to the video, but we also have a super annoying intermittent humming at highway speeds. It sounds like it is coming from the trim area where the front passenger side curtain airbag is stored. Whenever the sound occurs, I can feel that piece of trim vibrating like crazy towards the top. The sound is loudest down low by the speaker, but I think that is just due to the speaker picking up the vibrations and doing what a speaker does.

I don't know what is causing this sound yet or if it is the same as yours. But if you have figured out any resolution on your issue, I'd love to hear it! And I will update as well if I get figured out on my end.
