Question about 2003 Honda Pilot
+/- a week ago I took my to a car wash (with undercarriage washing) - which never had been an issue before. After traveling +/- 35 miles and parking the vehicle, the horn started blaring on its own non-stop. I started the vehicle and drove it a bit - which temporarily silenced the horn. A while later, the horn started blaring on its own again, so I started the Pilot again and drove it a bit. The horn silenced again - but this time (as I later discovered), the fuse blew - also disabling the parking interlock, etc. Since the owner's manual doesn't indicate which fuse operates the , I researched it online and finally found a schematic of the correct fuse panel - though the fuse numbers were way off (I checked the diagram and guessed correctly that it was fuse # 7). I replaced the 20 amp fuse - only to discover that trying to use the (now, disabled) horn now simply blows the fuse - and I've had to replace the fuse several times already - since I've needed to use the horn and keep forgetting that it's disabled. Does this indicate that the horn relay needs to be replaced - or could it be an electrical short elsewhere? FYI: I recently had to have the ignition key cylinder replaced. Could that also have been a source and/or solution to this problem? Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Once the dealer hooks up their computer and activates the ignition you shouldn't need to go back, The code that you were given is usually just a temp code to get you to the dealer.

I had a similar issue, but I think it's because I left the tailgate door open slightly and the built-in light killed my battery. I jumped my battery, but I wasn't able to start my car again and this time the door was closed properly. I was told by Honda that the batteries only last for about 2-3 years. I have since replaced the battery and no more issues.
