#2993 of 3436 Re: pilot VP 2008 side mirror [pilotvp]

Look up Majestic Honda on the net. They have an online parts catalog where you can purchase one. I have been VERY HAPPY with their online service. It may be cheaper to go to your local honda dealer and order one after the S& H is added for such a small part. I bought a whole mirror assembly in the correct color for my '04 pilot and it was a LOT cheaper than my local dealer wanted. Took only 3-4 days before it showed up at my door. I have also bought brake pads (front & rear) from them....Honda Parts!! and even with the $15 S&H it was $20 cheaper than my local dealer.
#2994 of 3436 Radio Problems
Jan 06, 2009 (11:54 am)
We have a '04 Pilot (82k miles) with AM/FM Cass CD & with the entertainment system (DVD) with rear headphone jacks. We are having problems with the rear Headphone jacks being very noisey to where you can not use them. Also the other day on a couple hour trip the left side speakers would not work. Then yesterday there was a hissing noise in the background of what ever was playing. It does not always do it but seems to be getting worse as time goes on.
Has anyone else had problems like this?

Good show! Interesting site.
I was hoping for parts and pieces to install hitch and wiring on our 03 CR-V.
Can't seem to find wiring instructions for that year model.
#2996 of 3436 Check Engine & VTM-4 Light on
Jan 09, 2009 (5:05 am)
I have a 2004 pilot with 75000 mi and just had the VTM-4 light comes on and check engine light. Also when sitting idle, the engine revs up and down in a pulsating fashion. When I first start the car the VTM-4 light does not stay on and I am able to engage the 4 wheel, but after I let it run for a few minutes the VTM-4 indicator light comes on and then I am unable to engage the system. Any ideas???

Recon it would be the same for the 2003 CR-V as for the 1999 in the video?

Had the same problem a couple month's ago with my 2004. It was a broken wire to the knock sensor. An 8 dollar part ant 400 dollars to R&R the intake manifold to get to it. Good luck.

Did you ever find out what was causing this? I had the right side bulb go out about a year ago and replaced it, but this low beam out/high beams working issue is puzzling.
#3001 of 3436 Keyless entry not working on 05 Pilot. Alternatives?
Jan 12, 2009 (10:25 am)
One of my keys doesn't remotely open the door anymore after 4 years of ownership. I've changed the battery, but no change. I'm not sure I want to have to pay for a new one. Any ideas what it would cost?
Anyway, is there a way to arm and disarm the vehicle's standard alarm without the remote? I don't think I've ever seen a switch under the dash for the alarm. Still have my other key, but want to make sure I know of any alternatives to the remote keyless entry and the alarm function.

We had the same problem with our 06 Pilot. We took it to the Honda dealer who "reset" the keys so they both would work. They did not charge for this 10 minutes of work due to we were covered on warranty.
The dealer needed BOTH keys to align the locks.
I believe all of the owners of Pilots in that law suit had 5000 miles added to their warranty coverage. At least that was what the service rep told me. Hope this helps.
Good luck to all and stay safe.
