I recently purchased a 2020 Hybrid Limited. I bought a service manual for it from TechAuthority.com, but it does not include the electrical schematic. It looks like there is a separate manual for the 2018 electrical, but not for the 2020. Is the 2020 electrical unchanged from 2018?

I have to say I'm disappointed with the service manual. It hard to read, no index, part diagrams etc. Its also annoying that it is only available on Windows. I'd prefer a paper one, or at least a plain PDF.

The Pacifica replaces my 20 year old Honda Odyssey. Its manual was much more detailed. Are there better manuals for the Pacifica?

Thanks.

Good question in general. They should be PDFs. I run my computers on Linux exclusively, so a Windows only service manual would p*** me off!

Linux here as well. Not only will it only work on WIndows, it also will not work on Windows in a Virtual Machine. Its bad enough that it only works in Explorer. It gets worse. It locks out all browsers from internet access until you restart them.

So, I payed $200 for a manual that I can't access on my laptop. Not at all happy. I would much rather have a paper version. I carried my Odyssey manual in the van for 20 years.

I also don't like that they put a "security" block on the ODB2 interface to prevent "unauthorized" devices from accessing it. Very annoying.
