2017 Honda Ridgeline 4dr SUT
280-horsepower 3.5L V6 6-speed automatic AWD
switch for windows and rear sliding windows replaced. when i got home, driver's side window did not have one touch feature requiring 2nd visit to the dealer. don't think that 2nd visit would have been needed if they did it right 1st time.
Third brake light melted at the top, leaving a 1/2" gap between the light and truck body. The melt pattern corresponded to the two center bulbs. Honda said it was out of warranty. Told me I could pay for it, then appeal!
A/C, heater fan quit working, I replaced the transistor with no fix, all fuses, wiring checked OK. The 2nd Honda shop fixed it but couldn't determine cause....said if it acts up again the interior wiring harnes to motor would be replaced.
Well, the blower motor quit working again. The shop ID'd the problem with the wiring harness from the a/c control unit to the blower motor and replaced it, a first for this rather large dealership. Lucky me!
CD changer had mechanical error. Dealer replaced it under extended warranty.
A/C blew warm air. Replaced compressor relay.
replaced dead battery
Replaced battery, would not hold charge in cold weather
Compressor clutch solenoid
LCD display in dash (odometer, trip, TPMS) would not work when relative humidity would be above 60%.
Starter has been making a whine noise. Just stopped working.
A/c compressor was bad
Had to replace switch that heats passenger seat.
A front door actuator--some part in the door was making a strange noise when car was running--Honda warranty covered it!

Starter failed. Had to have vehicle towed.
Heater blower motor and sensor malfunctioned and required replacement
Burnt out tail and brake lights.
I reported a/c blows warm air - dealer "found leak at the discharge hose" and special ordered hose.
Replaced AC discharge hose.
R side headlight failed (low beam) so I purchased a pair of bulbs and replaced the bulbs on both sides.
A second low beam replacement.
Another headlight bulb. Each time was due to the low beam burning out. It is an easy fix but I cannot explain why it is occurring more frequently than should be expected.
AC wouldn't work intermittently (condensor clutch wasn't engaging). Dealer replaced the AC compressor relay.
Passenger-side headlight bulb burned out. Driver's-side map light failed to illuminate when door was opened, however would light when map light button was depressed. Dismantled map light assembly, removed problem switch from housing and slightly bent metal contacts entering switch.
Replaced hazard switch illumination bulb. Had been blown for some time and didn't realize it was supposed to be illuminated.
Battery light came on steady. Replaced alternator.
TPMS sensor in wheel.
Positive battery terminal of poor quality, does NOT fully tighten. Thin metal terminal material either wrong size, or simply stretches over time, to point that terminal cannot be tightened. Elected to replace it with conventional aftermarket terminal.
Headlight burned out.
Replace cabin filter
Blower motor is squeaking. Mechanic inspected the blower and determined the bearings may be going bad. No repair was attempted.
Windshield washer not working. Replaced motor myself. Motor cost $38.00 plus tax. Very easy to replace.
Mixing box working irregularly sending heat to random places regardless of thermostat settings repair not doe because of uncertainty by the dealer on whether the $900 repair would correct the problem
Airbag warning indicator was ON intermitantly. Found faulty seat belt buckle. Honda paid for labor, I paid for 'supplies' ($14).
relaced battery with 100 month oem honda battery
drivers side map light flickers when on and fading out to off after door is closed..
New bulb for interior switch. My Ridgeline has had no major repairs since new (one of the first made)
REPLACED THE STARTER MOTOR
HVAC blower inop. Diagnosed main fuse box bad. I replaced it and no dice. Took truck back, dealer had it for 1 week. They said that wire harness was loose. This happened three times already and I think it will continue.Notified HONDA AMERICA
Left front brake dust guard - bent, touching brake disk. Repaired.
D3 switch never worked from the time I bought it used with 6K miles on it. They tried to repair the switch and was not successful so they ordered a new one for which I had to return a second time. Installed new D3 switch.
All warning lights on dash were flashing. ECU power failure code was thrown. Dealer cleaned batt terminals, if it happens again, needs new ECU. Oil and trans fluid changed also.
No cost to date other than maintainence.
Driver's door gasket had to be replaced 3 times.
passenger heater seat button light burned out and is being replaced under warrenty.
Have owned Ridgeline since April 27, 2005
Needs fan motor,blower transitor, and wiring harness. 4 dealers have harness, but will not release part? Truck is down at shop. Just went thru Gustav and need truck but too hot to drive without aircondition. 4 harnesses in the country and wont send ...
They finally were able to get the Blower transistor, Blower Motor and sub harness which took the longest. What was sad, there were 5 dealers in the country that wouldnot release the subharness, Honda had to go to the vendor and order more subharnesses.
Would not start. Brought to dealer. Replaced immobilizer unit and both keys' batteries. Went to pick it up, would not start again. Replaced PCM, fixed. Gave me a rental car while they had it.
Wiring harness replaced for headlight because it had got hot and light wasn't working.

Had to change bulbs for the following switches, requiring a removal of the dash trim: VTM-4, select/reset, cabin light, and VSA off.
Also trailer light connector and map light assy.
Air conditioning valve stuck preventing proper operation of AC. It would alternate between blowing low amounts of cold and then would just blow heat.
It needed two new front overhead interior lights.
