Have a Honda Question? Ask a Honda Repair Expert.
I see you had requested an expert that is not on often at all.
If you take the wires from the hood switch that go to the Pilots harness and connect them together the system will think the hood is always open and will not set. You can cut the connector off the hood switch and then just twist the wires together leaving it hooked up to the car in case you want to repair it correctly some day.
There are no fuses that will disarm the system without disabling other parts of your Pilot.
Just disconnecting the hood switch will not fix your problem. That just makes the system think it is always closed and tells me you have an issue somewhere else in the system.
You need to connect the 2 wires together which is what the dealership will do.
It is very easy and yes you can do this yourself. It is making the system think something is not closed.
The dealer will most likely charge you $50.00 to do exactly what I am suggesting., connecting the wires together not just unplugging it.
You have nothing to loose by following my suggestion to connect the wires together. I do not get paid unless you accept this answer. As of now all you owe are the site fees which I have no control over.
All I stated was that you were not disabling the system as you wanted by just disconnecting the hood switch.
