It probably is due to a blown fuse.

Refer to the owner’s manual and re-check the fuse no. 11 in the secondary fuse box -under hood.

The shift lock release is below the shifter. You have to pry the small cover off first. Owner’s manual also shows it. Manual is online via Honda if you don’t have the hard copy.

Have you been looking at Fuse No. 11 in the under-hood Auxiliary fuse box (secondary fuse box)?

If fuse no. 11 is okay, check the wiring under that fuse box, some of the wires may be damaged, for example rat chewing on the wires, etc. Fuse No. 9 and 10 at that same fuse box are for the driver's power seat switch.

If you have a voltmeter, you can also measure the voltage on the brown wire at the brake pedal position switch connector.

Here is a link to fuse information for a 2011 Pilot: Honda Pilot (2010 ? 2011) ? fuse box diagram | Auto Genius

Your earlier post stated: " 2011 honda pilot replace brake switch still nothing.. it cranks but stuck in park the brake lights, fan, horn isnt honking but is making a some kind of slight buzzing sound seat adjusting switches not working and some other random things that need electricity not working but dashboard lights come on also the d for drive on the dashboard is blinking green".

You would have to check all of the items listed on the Secondary Fuse box, but it sounds like you may not be getting power to your Secondary Fuse box (Auxiliary). If this is the case, you may have to track back to see what provides power to the Secondary Fuse Box. Is the passenger seat reclining (this is in the Primary Fuse box)? Is it the driver's seat not reclining (this is in the secondary fuse box)? Horn is in the secondary.

I would recommend going through the items in each of the fuse box listings and try to isolate which parts (or all) of a fuse box is not working. Then try to troubleshoot from there.

Hope this helps!

I would also check the battery and the alternator for the correct voltage.

Good luck,
Sam
