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.
Replaced battery, would not hold charge in cold weather
Compressor clutch solenoid
Starter has been making a whine noise. Just stopped working.
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.
The overhead maplight unit went bad and had to be replaced.
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!
Burnt out tail and brake lights.

Starter failed. Had to have vehicle towed.
Loose wire connection on control panel back
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!
A/c compressor was bad
LCD display in dash (odometer, trip, TPMS) would not work when relative humidity would be above 60%.
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!
Heater blower motor and sensor malfunctioned and required replacement
CD changer had mechanical error. Dealer replaced it under extended warranty.
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.

vehicle died on the way back from a shopping trip 35 miles away. totally dead battery, trouble shot it, alternator producing low voltage. Not enough to keep it running. remove / replace with a reman unit from Autozone (they had one in stock).

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.

Had to replace seat belt buckle, under warranty. Bad connection would show air bag not working.
Door unlocking mechanism on driver's door had to be replaced [the one that works from the key or from the inside]
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.
left side passenger door lock broke and would not open using the key fob.
a/c stopped blowing...when went over 40 could feel the cool air, took to dealer and they repaired said was a recall, also did maintenance - oil change, tire rotation, balance

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.
AM Radio cuts in and out when going over bumps. Faulty antenna connections. Ordered parts for another visit.
Also trailer light connector and map light assy.

All dash warning lights on. ECU threw power loss code. Dealer cleaned batt terminals, if not resolved, needs new ECU. Dealer also changed oil and tranny fluid. Suggested replacing front pads. Replaced pads myself. 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.

Airbag warning indicator was ON intermitantly. Found faulty seat belt buckle. Honda paid for labor, I paid for 'supplies' ($14).
