I did this to my 2019 Honda Passport Elite and it works great. Read to link below several times to let everything sink in. The 2019 information is towards the end of the link article. Parts are very common and readily available. Parts procurement is referenced in the link.

The link: Automatic Auto Idle Stop System set to Off by default ver 3 (Detailed) (see post no, 20 by MtMan in link).

12V brown wire info:::: use the 12v on the console accessory plug. The diagram is absolutely correct. For everyone that hasn't done this yet, the brown wire is located on the bottom of the console- (see post no. 27 by synstsia in link). also referenced below.

This is where you get your 12v+ from.

This is how to wire your board to the wires. FRM01 board,


5455

This is the plug that connects to the Auto Idle Stop button in the console and the plug referenced above in the FRM01 picture.

The FRM01 board is a programmable board. When you push the start engine button on the car the board will wait 5 seconds (programmable) giving the engine time to start, then click the relay on the FRM01 board for 1 second which is the same as you pushing the Auto Idle Stop button on the console. The Auto Idle Stop buttons on the console still works to activate and deactivate the Auto Idle Stop features of the Passport.

AFAICT our Auto Stop has never worked, so I'm interested to see if this works to turn it on! It would have been at the Dealer that the hood-open-start-close had been done since I don't think we've ever tried that ourselves.

Just tried it and it worked. Wife and I are going out later, will have to see it it continues to work. A hard press on the brake when at a complete stop shows a message that the auto stop function is not available.

Well that was short lived. As I stated earlier my wife and I were heading out to take care of a few things which entailed about a 25 mile round trip. I would say for probably the first half dozen stops the auto stop didn't engage, but that was about it. The PP's annoying habit is back. :mad:(n)

I've notice in both our Hondas (PP, Ody) that there are times when auto stop seems to not stop; I suppose there are certain conditions that must first be met and we're not satisfying those restrictions.

One item that I have IDd is sometimes (while sitting at a light) I'll see a dash message saying if I want it to auto-stop then I need to apply greater pressure on the brake. When I do it will shut down.

To me it (auto-stop) is a wonderful 'habit' - and Honda did provide you an over-ride function.

The hood trick only worked on the 2016 Pilot. The short the green and yellow wire trick which can cause occasional CEL is only on the 2017-2018 Pilot. Passport has different wiring setup which is similar to the 2019+ Pilot.

Piloteers have a timer circuit board option which simulates pushing the disable button. Note:Orange light still comes on the dash display. Passport owners need to go to post #20 for correct wiring diagram for them. Personally, I just by habit while pressing the shifter button, also press the auto-idle off button. No big deal, I'm already there pushing buttons.

Source of the OP's procedure is from a Piloteers thread? Not clear if the procedure works? It was entertaining reading on the last page of the thread when it became an IP dispute and then the thread was locked. :LOL:
Thanks for the link. Very interesting thread. Didn’t realize so many Pilot owners were having the stalling problem. It’s just amazing that there’s no way to disable the “feature” if we don’t want to use it. Damn government is really overstepping on this one.

Gray Beard what year vehicle do you have. I wonder of some of the is year specific. Mine is a 2019 Passport and best I can tell the method did not work. It worked until I restarted the vehicle at a later time. Maybe the computer rebooted after a timeout period??????
I have a 2019 Elite built in September. As I stated in a later post it reverted back, so maybe it is linked to a time out period. I too push the disable button along with the shift. I just think having a feature that will turn our engine off while on the road is a recipe for a disaster. It is also my understanding that the auto stop feature is to save fuel and not an emissions issue. Ask a person with a Pilot if having stalling issues while in traffic and damn near getting killed is worth a thimble's worth of gas. The default should be off and you can push a button to give yourself a feel good moment that your saving the world. The US emissions standards are stick enough. If we could get China and India to give a damn about air pollution the world would be a 100 times better off. Apologize for the rant and will now get off my soapbox.

IMHO that’s a pretty extreme reaction. Do you have any fact based evidence to support that claim? I’m truly interested, and not looking to ruffle feathers.
They're easy to find scientific studies on this. People who do not smoke and have never smoked are getting lung diseases that only smokers used to get, and science has pointed to pollution from automobile exhaust pipes. People don't want to know because they love their cars.

search for "auto exhaust and respiratory problems"

I posted a method that I thought worked however, next time I got into the car I was back to the way it was. Sorry my solution did not work. I see the same results on different internet post.

Gray_Beard, you are spot on! Why does the US have to bear the burden of worldwide environmental cleanup?? We give billions of dollars to many countries each year. Now we’re supposed to subsidize their environmental cleanup? Those in the US who complain about supposed global warming should focus their energy on the major contributors to the destruction of the environment. Stop trying to shake down the tax payers for problems that are caused outside the of the US.

Sorry for going off topic...
