My 2011 pilot ex makes a muted dong sound while driving.
I have a basic pakage: no NAV or lane detection.
It doesnt seem to relate to speed.

Does it have a system that expects a phone to be hooked to it? And it dings occasionally to remind that it's not connected?
Is it the Same ding as when the door is opened with lights on or key in off ignition?

No. It's a 2011 with no Nav, no touchscreen, basic factory radio, that's it.
It DID come with wheels, an engine, and a steering wheel!
The door-open alarm is a tinny "ding".
This is a more mellow "dong" if that makes sense.

As long as it's not an unpleasant ding. :)

Does the dong always happen at consistent intervals or randomly? Does it occur while stopped at a light or only when moving?

Have you tried driving with radio off and climate off to see if the dong happens with those off? Have you checked the glove box or console for some item left in car that could be making the sound?

I recall on other vehicles that I've owned that there was a backup method of warning of a fault with the airbag system, in the form of a chime, if the airbag light on the instrument cluster was burned out. When you turn they key to the "on" position, does the airbag light come on for a few seconds?
