mohsha, we also were told we needed the new wiring harness, and Honda corporate told our dealership that the harness would not be in until December. We contacted Honda corporate - check out https://www.elliott.org/company-contacts/honda/ for the primary contact person and sent an email to that individual explaining our issues and that we needed the part prior to leaving on a cross country trip with the vehicle in less than a month. They overnighted the part to our dealership within a few days after our contact. Picking up our Pilot tomorrow, fingers crossed that this will correct the issues for good.
I hope it works for you. Keep us posted. I'm going to make a few videos this week of my Pilot doing the snap, crackle, pop routine and take it back in for service again Saturday.

Thanks Flowergal for the information. I will do the same.

Update! Honda replaced the wiring harness in the dash. Noise seems to have stopped for now but it has only been 2 days. Now my rear wiper doesn’t work. Back to the dealer. I have spent so much time at the dealership the past 6 weeks! So frustrating!

Wondering if anyone else hears a random Electrical Snap/Crack sound, every now & then? I haven't been able to pinpoint what causes it to happen but I hear it quite often. It's one single crack/pop and then won't do it again for several minutes.

It happens whether the radio is on or off. We also thought there might be some kind of interference with the Bluetooth & my iPhone. I've turned off my phone completely and I still hear it randomly.

I am taking it in for warranty work later today and wondering if anyone else experiences this as well?

Wondering if that took care of the issue or the snapping noise came back ? I have a 2019 touring and I am experiencing the same :(

I am hoping for an update as well. I decided to install a dashcam I had lying around here. It's on a cupholder mount pointing up at the windshield and dash. My wife is driving the car as usual and will make notes of the times when she gets the snap, crackle, and pop noises. Based on the times she notes, I am going to collect the corresponding recordings from the memory card in the camera and compile it all on a CD or a USB flash drive to give to the dealer. I don't plan on taking it back in until I have several documented events.

yes! The noise has stopped for now. Fingers crossed! It did take the dealership 3 times in to make the call to replace the wiring harness. I would push them to do this first. The harness is on backorder.

I've got an appointment tomorrow at the dealer, I've got my USB drive here with recordings from the dashcam that demonstrate the noise. I'm leaving the Pilot and they are giving me a loaner, which I plan on keeping until they have an answer beyond resetting my head unit.
