So I get this message every few days popping up on my dashboard. "AUTO ENGINE IDLE STOP SYSTEM PROBLEM". This is a very annoying message as it comes up at some times daily. I have taken to the local dealer and they have no answer.
The vehicle is a 2017 Honda Pilot Touring with no other issues. I now have about 8,000 miles on the vehicle and would like to know if any other 2017 Honda Pilot owner have the problem or remedy to our problem. If you manually turn off the Auto Engine Idle System I still get the message. Thanks.

Getting the same message today. Just over 8600 miles on my 2017 touring.

A good 25% of the cost of the car was for the comfort and peace-of-mind that the dealer will fix everything for you during it's initial growing-pains years. Call your Dealer service desk, schedule your service appointment, and let them do the magic that you've already paid for.

Just a thought...

Can I ask if any of you have had the stall problem on your 2017's or 2018's?

My 2016 Touring stalls many times when I take my foot off the brake after the Auto Idle Stop has kicked in. It is a scary problem since it could leave you in a very bad place and unable to just go. You have to completely restart the car. But I don't know if the problem exists on 2017's or 2018's?

My car will have been in the shop for 3 weeks this Monday for this problem...

Did you ever find a solution to this problem? Our 2016 touring elite has cut out on us several times, once we were almost plowed by a big rig thanks to this problem. We have also taken our pilot to the dealer several times who could not repeat the issue and claim that there is nothing wrong with the vehicle. I hate it but we are contemplating trading the vehicle in before we get hurt

Hi. I have a 2016 touring. Drove it off the lot. In 2018, I had same issue with it stalling. By 2019, it would actually shut off and I would have to turn the car off and restart before being able to drive. As the year progressed it got worse. I have now taken it to the dealer 4x and the problem has not been resolved. Under HondaCare,I've had the alternator replaced as they thought that was the issue. Recently they thought it was the battery. I'm at almost 120k now and am fighting with them to cover the issue once it's found.

I've been having the same problem without sufficient resolution. The people at Ourisman Honda in Bethesda said they never heard of this and couldn't fix it unless they can recreate the problem. The gave me a new battery and reset the computer, but the problem persists. I filed a complaint with NHTSA and suggest everyone else here do the same!

We just get into our pilot and startup...first thing before putting in drive is to hit the switch to disable the idle stop system. Gets to be a habit, like putting it in gear.

And idle stop works without the starter motor...the engine is stopped with one cylinder at top dead center with fuel/air under compression. When foot off brake or steering wheel moved the computer fires that cylinder and then engine is running. Have you heard the difference between a cold start and an idle/stop start? Very noticable. But I still don't use it.
