Hi all, Ridgeline Owners Club member here. Long story short, I am debating trying to retrofit the Pilot Qi charger in my RL. I have looked through the install instructions, and searched the web for info. I feel like this is fairly easily doable with one caveat. What is in that 7 pin connector that connects to the new center console. I assume two wires are power and ground, but what are the other 5? Are they all going to the head unit for the remote control of it to turn it on and off?

If I can get away with power and ground, my thought is I can just run a cable under it into the console with a USB connector on it, so I can easily turn it on and off by unplugging that cable. TIA for any info.

Try searching for posts from "Mt Man" on the board. I know he has posted some very helpful information including wire diagram for by-passing the idle auto stop. I think it was for the 2019 model but also had the earlier model year difference noted. Post # 18 in this thread with the 2019 information from MtMan

2019 Console wire

Check out this thread about the auto idle stop disable, it has wire information you may be looking for

Thanks, that definitely has a lot of good info. I still don't see what wires are actually feeding the wireless charger to see if it is as simple as power and ground. After chatting with another member on the ROC, it sounds like there is more to it than just power/ground, which I kind of suspected that it would connect to the can bus. Assuming it has to have a signal from the can bus to keep it on, even with power/gnd, I am afraid I am not going to be able retrofit it anyway.

Hopefully someone else will be able to help with more information.

There is also a web site where you can purchase a limited time (1 day, 30 days, 365 days) and obtain repair and service information. I haven't used it but the 1 day for a vehicle owner is only $10.00.

You may be able to obtain additional information for future needs also within that 1 day window. You could contact them and see what is available to you as an owner and what you could download and keep.

Yeah, I have actually seen that, but was hoping to avoid it if someone else had already pulled that diagram. $10 is halfway to a mat on Amazon assuming I can't do this!

Thank you @Jrgomez15 !

Hard to know for sure just connecting power and ground via pins 1 and 6 would actually get me what I want. Pin 7 reports any DTC's, then there are the two can bus connections. I am afraid just powering it will not get it to "turn on", it will need something from the can bus to tell it to work...

Your welcome @gti16vman.
I understand. It's hard to come by good information on the forums. And yeah the pin 6 should power the device on when ignition is turn on. Then constant voltage and ground.

Every little bit of information is helpful. I already have the wireless charger physically installed in my Ridgeline. Awaiting more info to get it wired properly. Thank you for the diagrams.

I pulled up the Diagram at Work, the 2 data wires go to another Wireless Charger. But I could be wrong...

I finally found a deal on the whole setup (charger and gear shift surround), so I bought it and it came it today. Tonight, I used a temporary setup to power the wireless charger via my variable power supply. I gave it 12.8V and low and behold, it works! Ground to pin 1, power to 6 and 7. Now, the last piece of my puzzle is to find a wiring harness for it. I would like to get the OEM one, but I have to do some more searching to find out the part number to see if that is cost effective. May search junkyards to see if by chance I can snag one there.

Just wanted to give an update and say thanks to those that have helped!

Wondering if anyone can confirm the correct part number for the harness that has the wireless charger is: 32118-TG7-A10? This is what I seem to come up with, but since I can't find a picture of it, hard to tell it actually has the 7 pin connector for the wireless charger.

As an aside, also searching for a pigtail of sorts for the cigarette lighter. Figure if I could get that, I could make it pretty OEM looking instead of tapping into the actual wiring for the lighter. This is less critical obviously.

Figured I would post up the results of my labor. Again, I appreciate the help on the wiring diagram. I found a harness that works and tapped into the 12V outlet.

Thanks again for the help.

I assume you mean the gray connector? It was being sold as a backup camera harness from a 2013 Civic/CRV. I had measured the dimensions of the connector on my Odyssey and then scoured the internet for something that would work. This one connects up perfectly. I actually ordered a couple of extras of both harnesses.

The pics posted above are of the Plug for a 2013 CRV backup camera. Was told it will plug into the wireless charger. Do I have to remove any of the wires from the plug for the charger to work? or are they in the correct spots for the circuit?
