Hello, I need some help from you guy expert. I took apart the dash of my honda pilot to replace a wire harness, I took off the ac condenser, well finilly I put everything back together, then I went to recharge my ac and now the ac doesn't kick on. I checked again for right connection, but everything seen to be install right, Anybody know if I needed to do something else before I recharge the AC?

94acura, did you ever resolve this issue? I have the same situation on my 2008 Pilot where the passenger side (sounds like its coming from under the dash) has a hissing or leaking air type sound just when the heating/air is on. Just wondered what you found out.

Hi every one
I think I'm having similar problem with mine too even thought it is little different.
When I turn on my Heat the front vent are blowing on air no heat while the rear vent are blowing normal heat as wanted.
I hope someone can give idea where to start.
#25 of 71 Air conditioner is not cooling!!!
Feb 14, 2010 (12:22 pm)
I have had my '08 Pilot for only two years and suddenly the air conditioner stopped working. It blows out semi cool air... not cold at all. What are my options, I am just at 34,000 miles. I took the car in to the dealer previously for this problem when it was still under warranty and now I am facing the same problem again. I am really upset that I may have to spend a whole lot of money to fix this problem in a car that I purchased new!

Yuor post does not have enough info. to come up with some suggestions. Assuming that everything works except the air being not cold enough, you may
have insufficient amount of Freon in the system. Have you had the dealer checked for leaks in the A/C system yet?
#27 of 71 2003 HondaPilotEx a/c failure & very expensive repair
Jun 25, 2010 (9:38 pm)
I'm writing this message to warn others regarding my 2003 Honda Pilot a/c problem.
My 2003 Pilot (86,000 miles) is at the dealer for service now. Loud fan noise when I start the engine with a/c on and on cold air coming out on all vents. When the suv is running, the noise is substantially lessened and cold air comes out nicely.
It was diagnosed to have a failing a/c compressor that is spreading metal fragments to the entire a/c system. The service advisor told me that the entire a/c system has to be replaced and it will cost $5,100.00+tax. I was also told that if I had it fix much earlier, the damage would have been much less. I told him that I follow the maintenance schedule religiously and take it for service exclusively at their dealership. They should have noticed the problem and made the appropriate repair. But they did not. He also told me that this is a known problem on the CRV but not on the Pilot. There goes my plan for buying a CRV.
I called Honda customer service and the guy that I talked was very pleasant but could not offer any assistance. He will not even transfer me to his manager because he said that nobody can help me even if I talk to an executive. I think I have no choice but to have the repair done at a Honda dealership otherwise we cannot use the car or sell it in it's current condition.
With this experience, I don't think I'll buy another Honda ever again. I won't even recommend it to anybody. I'm very very very disappointed with Honda for using cheap parts.
Do any of you know someone or a number that I can call at Honda to try to get financial assistance like a discount on parts, etc.?
Good luck to all of us.

Did you get any where on this issue. I am facing the exact same thing. I had the AC fixed under warranty ten months ago and now that it is out of JUST warranty the AC has suddenly stopped working again.

Everything is working except air has progressively gotten less cool until it does not cool at all.
