Has anyone experienced this issue with their 2016 elite AWD pilot. I’ve taken the vehicle to the dealership multiple times but they were unable to duplicate the problem. The error message randomly appears and goes away after re-starting the vehicle. If there is a solution, it will be great, if someone can share it.

I do remember someone on the forum having an issue with the AWD and it turned out to be corrosion on the electrical plug on the rear diff. Yours may just be a bad connection causing the intermittent fault. Did the dealership check for fault codes in the PCM?

Edit: don't follow this advice!

Buy a cheap OBDII reader so you can pull the code when it appears. That at least provides a troubleshooting starting point since the car isn't storing the code.

Generic obd2 readers won’t read Honda specific codes.

I am pretty sure that Bluedriver and some other BTscanners will read other specific Honda codes. I know that Bluedriver will do a full scan and read B codes and it picked up the fault code on my start/stop button so I would think that it would read all the powertrain codes too.
