2009 Honda Pilot ProblemsSoftware Update For False Coolant Sensor Fault Code
On certain models the PCM misinterprets data from the coolant sensor and sets a false Check Engine light (MIL). A software update from Honda will repair this issue.
On certain models a leaking side marker light wire harness can cause a water leak inside the vehicle. Resealing the wire harness where it goes through the body into the cabin area should stop the leak.
A knock or clunk type noise may be noted from the front suspension over bumps. This is can caused by worm stabilizer (sway) bar links. Replacing both stabilizer bar links will commonly repair this issue.
2009 Honda Pilot QuestionsFront interior map light will not turn on, only problem on one side. (1 answer)
rotors were replced approx 5,000 miles ago on front but again the rotors are again warped?
Dealership told me that the engine harness is badly corroded and needs replacing. Would like to investigate to see what would cause this, as the cause may be under warranty, as the harness replacement is not. Anyone else experience this? Thanks!
2009 Honda Pilot RecallsPassenger Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures On Deployment
The passenger frontal air bag inflator may rupture on deployment, causing metal fragments to come through the air bag and injure occupants. Dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator free of charge to resolve the concern.
During manufacturing, some of the metal rivets used to secure components of the driver's airbag may not have been installed. A missing rivet could alter the performance of the airbag during deployment, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will inspect the driver's airbag module and replace it if necessary.
The stitching that secures the end of the lap section of the driver and front passenger seatbelt may be incomplete or missing. As a result, the seatbelt may detach from the anchor webbing, increasing the risk of personal injury in a crash. Dealers will inspect and replace the affected seatbelts as necessary. The Honda recall number is R95.
