We have had our Pilot EX-L 2 weeks now. On 3 different occasions, we walked away from the Pilot without locking it but had to immediately rush back because the horn went off (just like the car alarm but without any flashing lights). We tested the car alarm and panic button, both work normally.:(

Other than a few miniscule problems that were easily fixed we are very pleased with this vehicle.:)

Horn

I've had that happen as well but I discovered that both times I was pressing the "panic" button in my pocket.

One thing I will say is that the remote works from at least 50 yards away so be careful! Also, it works very well through walls as I've been in my house and hit the panic button as well and had it go off.

I have not had any "irregular" issues with it other than my own doing.

Panic continues

I normally leave the wireless control at home. It's just too bulky. (Don't get me started about how Honda keys have grown and how many holes they've poked in my pockets!)

Well, on one occasion, I parked the car in the driveway. Suddenly the "panic" went off by itself. I tried inserting the key, started the engine, and even moved the car. Still the horn beeped. I got the wireless control (fortunately I was at home) and pressed all the buttons - the beeps continued. The neighbors probably thought I wanted to draw attention to the new car.

According to the book, all these actions are supposed to turn off the panic: insert the key in the ignition, press any button on the wireless control, or wait 30 seconds. None of them worked.

Now it's more than a minute, and I'm starting to panic. I expect the police to roll up any second.

The solution: by dumb luck, I pressed the wireless "unlock" button twice.

So what do you do if the wireless control isn't handy?

Is there any other way to start the panic without using the wireless control?

The book says that you need to lock the car with a key or a remote to arm the security system. I've observed that using the master lock button on the driver door and closing the door arms the system as well. Perhaps unlocking using the same button will stop the panic.
