The emissions system is relatively complex, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that there are a lot of different problems that can make your Honda Pilot’s emissions light come on. Common issues include a failing catalytic converter, fuel injector problems, and more. When you see this light it’s important to get the problem diagnosed as quickly as possible. A mechanic or auto parts store should be able to read the code for you to give you a better idea of what’s causing the issue, but your mechanic will also be able to fix the issue depending on what code is displayed. Because this can be a problem with a lot of different fixes, and because more than one part can fail at once in some cases, it’s hard to know how easy or difficult emissions system repairs will be, so you should be prepared for a wide range of costs and repair times.


The Honda Pilot has been included in a class-action lawsuit regarding a range of transmission issues, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that your Pilot’s transmission is going to go bad. Transmission problems include things like unintentional acceleration, variable acceleration, extreme vibration, and other problems. That said, if your Pilot is having problems shifting or displays any other problematic transmission issues it’s important to get to a mechanic as soon as possible. Transmission issues only ever get worse with time, and especially if the problem is as simple as needing new transmission fluid it’s a good idea to get it resolved before it becomes something worse.


Brake vibration is a universal sign that there is something wrong, though the severity of the problem varies from vehicle to vehicle and situation to situation. Brake vibration can be a sign of failing brake rotors, worn brake pads, or a bad wheel bearing. All of those issues are fixable, but you’ll need a brake inspection and testing to diagnose the problem in most cases. Remember that your brakes are a critical safety system and brake repairs shouldn’t be put off if you can avoid it at all.


Honda sensors are known to have some challenges which means they may need maintenance more often than the same sensors in other vehicles. This can be a problem ranging from the sensors needing to be cleaned to needing fresh calibration, all the way through to needing to be replaced. When you bring your Honda Pilot in for sensor issues your mechanic will diagnose the exact problem you’re dealing with and make repair or replacement recommendations.


Honda uses a soy-based wiring coating which some consumers think causes problems with their vehicles. While there’s no scientific evidence of this problem, it does come up often enough that there seems to be pretty good anecdotal evidence of it. The issue isn’t so much that the wiring coating doesn’t do its job as well as other materials, it does. Instead, the issue is that the soy-based coating seems to be more appealing to rodents, causing them to chew the wiring can cause failures. This issue can sometimes be overcome by switching to different wiring with a different coating, but that can be an extensive and expensive job. Many consumers opt just to have wiring problems repaired as needed, and to keep an eye on the wiring for critical systems to prevent problems.
