My 06 honda pilot runs great. 10 minutes after i've shut it off and try to start it, it sputters and coughs but will not start.

Check that the battery is not faulty, if it is OK then check that it is charging looking at the battery voltage from the alternator. The voltage should be 14v over the nominal 12v. Then you have a wiring or alternator issue.

2003 Honda Element Battery, Starter, Solenoid or Altenator

im having the same problem. I went to one place and they said I needed a new starter. So I took it to another and they said the wires to the starter were not good and needed to be replaced, they put in a new battery also. Then 2 days later it wouldnt start again. So I took it back they diagnosed it and could not find a issue with it. So the guy told me it is something electrical most probably a relay of a sort. A coworker told me to go to a electrical specialist.
