I recently started to hear "knocking" noises from the front left side of my 08 Honda pilot when going over any sort of bumps in the road..more so at slow speed.. Or that's at least when I can hear it most clearly. I'm not sure how serious this issue is. My cars been in two shops the past month. One was to instal a new radiator because there was a leak and the second was for a power steering line. Now a week later this knocking noise... Does everything tend to go at once?

Any ideas/ price to fix estimates would be appreciated!



Removed exhaust already

Last summer, I started having an issue with the climate control. When the weather started getting cooler, if I switched from A/C to heat, it wouldn't switch back to A/C with the climate control knob. After a few trips and a few more tries, it would switch over. After we switched it to heat for the winter, it obviously wasn't an issue. Now that the weather is heating up, we desperately need the A/C back on, but can't get it to switch back. Even with the unit completely off, heat seeps out. Any help would be appreciated.

After I changed the car battery, I cannot reset the clock. I push the 'clock' button but there is no sound and the time does not blink. Pushing the hour and minute buttons does nothing.

no codes show up

I had an autobody shop lift the top panel on my 2004 Pilot while it was in there for an accident repair since this water leaking has been an ongoing problem while raining and during a car wash. They didn't find any issues with the panel; however, it continues to leak. I take off the plastic cover of the light to release the water and dry it out. How is repaired?

This worked for 2 days but it came back on tried again but didn't work this time?

Have checked the fuses and found no blown fuses
Is there a common issue that would cause them all to not work.

Harness light was on for an hour or more

Started my car this morning and the entire audio/information screen is blank. The radio will not work, the reverse camera will not work, and the thermostat will not show up. I can heat the car, but I can not tell what temp it is on. Any ideas??

A friend is having trouble with her 2004 Honda Pilot's brakes. When the weather gets very cold, sometimes the brakes won't "catch." This usually happens when the car is first started, but has happened after she had been driving a little while. She's had it to the Honda dealer three times and they have no idea. Does anyone know what this could be? Other than dangerous.

averaging 8 miles per gallon

I have a 2005 Honda Pilot. Changed rear pads. Noticed the pins that hold the caliper have a little play left to right. Is this normal? Also, replacing the inside pad is REALLY tight. How snug should those be? Since I have changed the brakes there is a squeak and seems like the pads don't float correctly.

Have had the brakes and rotors replaced. The light seems to reset when each time the vehicle is started but comes back on shortly after driving. Lost brakes once but pumped the brakes and they came back. Once home checked the reservoir, it was full.

Do i dare drive the vehicle on a 1500 mile trip without replacing it. It is a long slit but does really not have a gap and the vehicle seems to run fine??

Can't select 2015 Pilot, but that is what I have. This morning after starting, door alarm chiming while interior lights on while driving. Won't turn off. All doors are closed. Can't turn interior lights off. dashboard showing all doors open. OMG...HELP!
