Honda Pilot Tips & Tricks

Are you shopping for a midsize utility vehicle in Illinois? Or maybe you’ve already bought this modern family SUV? Whether you’re doing more research or you’re looking to learn more about your recent purchase, let Central Illinois Honda Dealers and our brand specialist HondaPro Jason show you around the 2019 Honda Pilot. Check out these Honda Tips and Tricks videos for Apple CarPlay customization, deactivating the auto high beams, the tailgate lock, manually accessing the fuel door, and more.


Apple CarPlay Customization

 

After installing Apple CarPlay, use your compatible iPhone to sync up with Pilot’s Display Audio touchscreen, allowing you to customize the appearance of your home screen by adding and/or removing apps.

Auto High Beams

 

Pilot’s high beams are on by default, but will automatically dim when the system detects oncoming lights. If you wish to deactivate this feature simply pull back on the high beams lever for 40 seconds until a light blinks in your instrument cluster.

Tailgate Lock Button

 

On the tailgate of your Pilot, just beneath the Honda emblem, you can lock all of the doors with the push of a button instead of having to physically go inside the vehicle.

Manually Access the Tailgate

 

There are various ways to open the tailgate of your Honda Pilot, but if you press and hold down the open button (just below the Honda emblem) for a few extra seconds the tailgate will switch to manual mode, allowing you to regulate the door’s height during low clearance situations.

Fuel Door Manual Release

 

If for any reason the fuel door doesn’t automatically open when you push the designated button, Pilot has a built-in manual override to access your gas tank. Simply separate the physical key from the key fob and use it to pop open the hidden compartment cover located behind the rear seating on the driver’s side. After accessing the compartment it’s as easy as pulling the white lever!
