Question about 2008 Honda Pilot

After market HID's for 08 Pilot

I've recently had aftermarket HID's installed and they don't go on initially. Sometimes it's both sides, sometimes it's one side. The techs have tried EVERY way to wire it and rewire it. We've tried a relay kit, power caps, connecting directly to the battery, connecting to the parking lights. I've taken it back to the shop about 5 or 6 times now and they are dumbfounded.

Don't know what there is left to do.

    Thanks so much for your reply. They replaced it with an all new kit and it still didn't work. They go when I turn the lights on, off, then on again. But that gets old quick.

Get hid lights that actually work.
if you connect direct to the battery,they should work.
that means the ballasts are defective.

2007 honda pilot radio code

Typically to get the code you have to have the serial number of the unit and call a Honda dealership to get the code. Sometimes in years gone by, there was a credit card sized card that had a sticker with the serial number and code. Sometimes the sticker is even stuck on the owners manual or the inside of the glovebox.

It sound like you are going aftermarket so I would think that the code is not needed as the code was only for the factory radio itself, not the rest of the system (speakers, etc..) Call the radio installer and ask but I don't think you need the code.

The Metal Hook can't fit back into its hook after installing a H4 HID bulb

You could try removing the metal retainer(long metal balde) in an old wiper blade and forming it into shape to hold the bulb...I've done one honda HID retainer with it and it works...You need to have a good pair of pliers and a side cutter to cut the metal as it is very hard and like a spirng.
Good luck.
