Honda Pilot moonroof glitch

The moonroof on 2009-2011 Honda Pilot vehicles may not operate correctly (may not open), due to a problem with the moonroof control unit software.

Specifically, this applies to the following Honda Pilot vehicles. All:

2010 2WD From VIN 5FNYF3…AB000001 through 5FNYF3…AB015011

2010 4WD From VIN 5FNYF4…AB000001 through 5FNYF4…AB025894

2011 2WD From VIN 5FNYF3…BB008765 through 5FNYF3…BB009538

2011 4WD From VIN 5FNYF4…BB015340 through 5FNYF4…BB016167

The corrective action involves updating the moonroof control unit software with the Flash Pack (P/N 07AAZ-SZAA100.

Remove fuse No. 28 from the under-dash fuse/relay box.

Reinstall the fuse and try to open the moonroof. If the moonroof does open at this point, go to the repair procedure. If not, continue with normal troubleshooting.
