I read somewhere to never tow a AWD vehicle because you could mess up the transmission. The car has to be carried on a flatbed truck. You may want to check it out.

Great, now we have everyone in AHM's cell phone numbers. :)
Does this tool apply to the Passport? In the attachment it says:
  1. The Acura TLX V6, Acura MDX, and Honda Pilot Touring and Elite models

Yes it does, that “Vehicle Handling Manual” was published in 2015 which is probably why the Passport isn’t listed.
thanks. I am thinking I should probably have one of these with my vehicle for emergency’s?.

I wonder if tow companies know about this and have the tool. With so many newer cars having similar shift by wire transmissions I would hope this is common knowledge among them.

OK, $50 on eBay vs $260 from Honda seems like a no brainer. I'll spring the $50 to have peace of mind I do have the tool should I need it.

For the AWD with 9-speed transmission there is a special tool available. See page 6, Appendix C. (last page). Note: eBay has your best price.
Wowza:

"The Acura TLX V6, Acura MDX, and Honda Pilot Touring and Elite models with the
Shift-By-Wire (SBW) transmission will be in Park and cannot be shifted to Neutral
with the engine off. Once notified, the DFR will expedite delivery of a special tool (to
be returned) to shift the SBW transmission to Neutral"

Really? omg

but wont crank for some reason
try puting in neutral comes up and says
it has to be running
so it is blocking in our running vehicle great eh.

right tool to load it up

No fun to be on the side of the road and needing a "Honda-only" tool huh. Heck the doc implies that not even all dealerships would have this thing.

Wow, I snagged one yesterday for $50 bucks, and today they've boosted the price to $150. Must have had a run on them and decided to see what the market would bear! Sorry pshadoa! This is the revised listing:


Not only that, mine was "free shipping" and the new listing has a $6 charge for that!

Same here I got mine for $50 with free shipping. I'd agree that perhaps this forum generated enough hits to their site that they felt like they could jack up the price. It's insane that Honda is charging $260 for this.
