Magic button is 'standard' on all cars now......It is under the left side of dash , just to the right of the steering column. Use 12 guage (double barrel works best) to 're-set'! . . . retired . . stupidity is not chosen , but BEING stupid IS.............

INVALID OR MISSING DATA FOR PRIMARY ID. Does vehicle start and idle normally?Does the throttle respond normally in neutral or park? If so try a 'reset' of the computers (may erase any stored items like radio presets , clock etc...KEY OUT!! Disconnect battery cables three minutes then touch pos &neg together to completely discharge any capacitors. wait 30 seconds. re-connect pos. to battery, then neg.turn key to run position without starting..wait at least 15 seconds check engine light should flash and then go out ..start car If all is well , good , If not I would suggest the dealer for this .

Saw your other post first ...still same recommendations. WAS second gear recall done ? That would be why an external in-line filter would be on it down by the cooler.

Does the green indicator on the a/c switch light up? does the blower motor have power going to it PCM controls the compressor , if it doesn't see the blower motor (inside fan)come on it won't let the compressor engage.Check blower motor relay. SOME are integrated into the multi-plex of the drivers side fuse box
Question Answered: where is transmission filter at on a 2004 honda pilot
June 21, 2012, 05:58 PM
there is no servicable internal trans filter on a honda. you may have an in-line filter up by the trans cooler (line to radiator) DO NOT USE ANY (insert name brand here) TRANS FLUSH products on hondas best results are drive til hot , drain,refill. repeat twice if necessary THAT is what honda considers a trans flush and it works best for their design.YES I do work at a dealer and YES I'VE replaced quite a few A/Ts shortly after they've been 'flushed' by aftermarket machines AND YES I do use 'those flush things' on other brands that seem to work well,...just not hondas. Thanks for putting up with my opinion. hope it's been a help!

drivers door lock actuator... If that one doesn't respond then none of the others will.try this... manually unlock all doors (windows can be down to make this easier) ..try to lock them with remote-?nothing? just manually lock the drivers door only..then use the remote to lock the rest..hit the remote a second time ...does the horn beep? try to unlock with the remote ? nothing?.. manually unlock drivers door then hit unlock on remote twice do the rest unlock on the second push of the remote?..Let me know what your results were and I'll tell you something funny.

Comment: Love and Drive the Car That Is Paid For

Very vague and good style to scare someone into repairs.I've seen that type of visual tactic used to scare uneducated people into many unnecessary repairs over the span of 30 years.Seeing is believing? YEAH. JUST MY OPINION. What other info was the client given?What about the newer T/Cs with hydraulic tensioners etc.?I'm sorry I'm such a sceptic ,and I apologize for sounding offensive , I'm just very defensive of the consumer.
Comment: Tire Pressure Monitor Systems Explained
July 05, 2012, 11:49 AM
First , I would like to agree with the comments regarding the safety aspects of having TPMS on cars.Second ,working at a dealership and being paid on a flat rate basis , I can't stand having to waste time on checking peoples air pressure (when that's all they come in for!). In most owners manuals ,to this day , it still states to check fluid levels and tire pressures at each fill up. Whatever happened to OWNER RESPONSIBILITY? IF it's so simple , that we should do it for free , then why isn't it simple enough for the owner? This IS just my opinion.
