#3285 of 3439 Head's Up: Power Drain That Affects Navi
Jan 04, 2011 (7:24 am)
Over the holidays, our Honda navi suddenly started asking us for the navi code everytime we started our 2010 Pilot Touring. Never did that before. Thought it was maybe a battery problem, but everything else in the car worked and it always started.
So, dropped by dealer and asked. Turns out there was a TSB on certain Pilots that covered the sun/moonroof drawing a trickle of power from the battery and that would set off the Navi. They fixed it and seems to be fine.
I had not read anything about this, so thought I would post it for others.

I have an 05 Honda Pilot that brakes suddenly by itself. I have reported it to the NHTSA. Could everyone post their outcomes with Honda? I would like to see Honda take responsibility for this problem. Please contact me by email.

Please don't ask for "personal" help via email. We all benefit when a problem is discussed on the open forum. Thanks.

to say nothing of having your e-mail waiting to be scooped up by a Nigerian prince who wants to give you money.

This makes sence.
Since I was looking at Trailer Blazers Ext, my brother-in-law talked to an owner of one and they told them that all of a sudden the breaks lock up and send them into the ditch without warning or senor light. So since a system like this is on alot of vechicles a failure in this system causing breaking is not out of the question.
I am also looking in Honda Pilots aka: a 2005.
If this model year has issues with there VSA system then I will probably look for either older or newer models and make sure I get one without that system installed.
