Trailer Wiring for Honda Pilot: Front Fuse Box
As in the Honda Pilot Battery Change Walk Through, pop out the little locking rivets:
Remove the air intake, to expose the battery and fuse box underneath.
Unlock the 3 clasps holding the cover on the fusebox:
Then we will add 2 fuses and 1 relay(Mine already had a 20amp fuse in one):
It should look like this when done:
Close everything back up as we are done with this portion.
Trailer Wiring for a Honda Pilot: Mounting bracket and plug assembly
Now we move to the underneath the vehicle portion. But first you have to pry the plastic cover out of the plug site which I did before taking a picture:
Once you have this cut out, you need to get under the vehicle. Release the bumper may not be required but it gives you more play, There are clasps on either side that can be released to get markedly more mobility:
Place the Mounting bracket so that it will be visible through the window you’ve made in the bumper skirt, it will need to be bent to angle out this window, but you can do that after it is placed. Although the screws are self drilling and tapping, I pre-drilled my first hole with a 9/64″ drill bit so the screw could be easily placed and the bracket held better in place for the second screw. The screws will require a 10mm socket, you may need a longer socket to get the distance you need to get the driver up there:
Now take the main connector:
After placing some dielectric grease on both ends plug it into the back of the 7 way connector you just mounted and then find the other end of the connector.
This was very difficult to release as the release is on the far side aiming up under the bumper. I don’t have any good advice on how to get this off, but you can just break the plastic and worry about how you’ll reattach it later. Here is what the clasp looks like once you release it.
Connect this to the corresponding piece:
