Engine Start Button Malfunction: 2016-17 Honda Pilot, 2017 Ridgeline

Recalls, Warranties, & Class Actions

The vehicle may not start on the first application of the engine Start/Stop switch, and an error message may appear on the dashboard, corresponding to Keyless Start System Error. In Canada, the replacement of the switch at a Honda dealership is covered after the expiry of the warranty under an internal policy.

Affected models

  • 2016 Honda Pilot
  • 2017 Honda Pilot
  • 2017 Honda Ridgeline

Honda U.S.A. issued a formal warranty extension program for this repair to 9 years or 125,000 miles (200,000 km).

This issue is distinct from the issue with the Honda and Acura Idle Stop feature that sometimes shuts down the vehicle owner intervention and won’t restart right away.
