Started about a month ago. Every time I hook my trailer to the Ridgeline, the check light comes on. And if I start the truck and go right into reverse, the VTM-4 light comes on. What the heck is going on?
The first thing I would do is check to see if all of the trailer lights work. That should be pretty easy with a friend. If any don't work, and the bulbs are good, then it's likely in the wiring. If you have a 12 volt power supply you can then disconnect the trailer from the truck and test the lights using the power supply. That will confirm that it is either the trailer wiring, or not. It should not take you too long to figure it out.
What CUinaRidge mentioned is the first thing that came to mind when I read your post, Ittybitty. Those hack jobs can cause electrical problems from time-to-time vs the isolated circuit the OEM harness gives you. If you have the OEM harness, then something more complicated may be going on. Have you tried to hook up to another trailer to see what happens? Maybe it's the trailer itself that is creating the short.
Yes, all latter model Gen1s and all Gen2s come with an integrated class III hitch receiver but only the AWD versions have complete wiring harnesses. If you have a Gen2 FWD and you want to tow, you can purchase their OEM accessory trailer hitch harness.
Hello! I just bought my first Ridgeline. It’s an 07 RTL with 149k miles. This is my first paid off car so I really want to baby it and get 300-400k miles out of it. It was Arizona owned it’s entire life and doesn’t have a single spot of rust so I think it would be worth it to invest some money...
Last week my '07 Ridgeline (134K miles) rounded a corner and after a few seconds of intermittent engagement the engine disengaged from the drive. On pulling over / coasting to a stop and popping the hood, a quick survey found an overflow at the transmission cooler expansion tank. After pick up...

2013 sport black. How do I sell a truck that can’t move? Trade in value?
Thanks for your 2 cents!
Hi folks, I have read several posts that talk about the wet headliner issue and how it can be related to the seam cracking under the roof rack/rain channel trim and/or the sunroof drains being clogged.
In my case, I had observed leaks each time it would rain, however, I recall the leaks were...
I bought a 2018 Honda Ridgeline new and within weeks inside driver’s door had a dent where I put my elbow. Apparently, I have a very boney elbow. Also bought a Honda CD/MP3 player, I listen to new purchased books on CD. Same time period it started resetting to first track and/or lost sound. Have...
