GuruD9KJ7. My car just started doing the exact same thing? What was the problem and solution?

I love my pilot (2012 EXL 4WD) but at about 130,000 miles I had multiple lights coming on and off at different times. Mechanics could find no problems except for a code that said I needed a PCU update. Basically software update on the computer. I went Tk dealer and had this done for $150. Took about an hour total. Everything was fine for a few months, then similar things started coming on again. I honestly think it is a computer issue as the car runs totally fine.

Have the same issue on my 2011 Pilot. I've read online that the Battery light often means the Electronic Load Detector is faulty but not sure if that effects VTM-4 light. Could be tho, since a faulty ELD causes voltage spikes. I'll post when I get the ELD replaced, can't seem to find one locally but they are only $10 online.
