Just got a 2020 Pilot Elite.

I'm thinking of ordering the steel wheels from the previous generation Odyssey. p/n 42700-TK8-A01

I'm assuming I need to order the new sensors for the 3rd gen Pilot and they'll fit?

Thanks.

Seems like aluminum and steel wheels use different stems and maybe the lug nuts differ too. This is getting complicated. :(

I do recall spending plenty of time searching for the correct TPMS to use with my 2007 Pilot, but I think I ultimately just found a listing that seemed reputable and stated that it would work with the car. I either bought those or took the part number from that listing.

Unless someone else chimes in with the knowledge, perhaps you can report back sharing what you learn. That’s what I did with my 2007 Pilot.

I was very worried about the shape of the wheels, and discovered that the Acura wheels I was using came with different part numbers depending on whether TPMS was on the wheel. Although the wheels I used weren’t the TPMS version, it wasn’t a problem in my case. I don’t think I have a ton of posts on this site, so it might be easy to find all the info I tried to share.

OK. So for the wiring, I’ve now got brushed clean contacts on the 3 wire terminal block, and I’ve extracted the alternator-to-voltage-regulator wiring harness that was melting and also had exposed wiring that might have been shorting out. There’s only two more known suspect wiring points now:
1) cut wire down by the starter
2) something still connected to the back of the alternator, and I want the alternator basically totally out of the loop with that fried wire. Who know so if a bad alternator is what caused that.


I’m still getting slow cranking (even with no spark plugs). So there’s a good chance the starter is just bad, but it’s clear that there is/was a host of issues that should be addressed before I start bolting parts onto this dumpster fire of a car. I’m glad I’m doing it this way.
