Question about 2004 Honda Pilot

1 Answer

My 2004 honda pilot will not start. the battery was dead and we jumped it sucessfully in the morning. I let it run about 30 minutes. Then went to start it 4 hours later and nothing even with jumping. when I turned the key the gages would all flutter. Went and bought a new battery and the horn started going off and wouldn't stop. My neighbor removed the horn fuse to get it to stop. Now nothing. The front lights won't even light. Thae steering wheel won't turn. Please help!

My 2004 Honda Pilot ran fine then a hour later won't start. At first thought battery so we charged up usig one of those chargers you plug in. Lights flicker, and clicking sounds but won't turn

Check batry terminals are secure & free from corosion, check security of earth strap to engine & main power wire on starter, if ok have the batry load tested to ensure it can perform under load as the starter needs a lot of current. Have you tried a jump start?

I have 2004 Honda Pilot and I started it with jumper and the alarm couldn't be stopped after I turn the engine off.

If the battery is dead when you jump it the alarm will sound. Pop the hood and put the jumper cables on first, then put the key in and start the car. this should turn the alarm off.

Sounds like your fan switch is bad. There are two fan switches on that car. One works when the car is running and the other works when you turn the car off, so it can cool the vehicle down when turned off. That one must be malfunctioning. Have it checked and possibly replaced.

Battery dead on 2004 Honda had to be jumped now radio crashed

Any time battery is disconnected the radio has to have a code reentered. This is a theft prevention issue. You should have gotten the code if you bought the car new, if not call the dealer and he can provide it.

Re key less entry have no idea but could be same issue.
