Customer Question

I have a 2004 Honda Pilot LX 3.5 L
I was driving it. I stopped to talk to my friend. It was still running. I hadn't even put it in park. It just died. And wouldn't start again. It cranks but just won't fire up. It has over half a tank of gas. And my battery is less than 2 yrs old. I tried Jumping it. But still won't start. Also I've tried pumping the accelerator when trying to start. Still nothing.

Had over 3/4 tank of fuel when it died. I'm not sure about checking for spark or computer codes. It was running fine and died out of nowhere.
Expert:  Amedee replied 9 months ago.


It could be several different things and I can provide you with some possible causes. We could even speak over the phone if you would like. That would be much easier.

Would you like me to list some possible causes or would you like me to walk you through this diagnoses?
