Ground problem. Your ground for the radio is right behind the radio or to the left at the steering column base. Loosen and retighten the bolt. Could also be an internal radio problem/solder joint/chip. I fix my own radios, because they are mine and I have time. Parts are cheap. Most people go with after market before they want to pay my price.

They are not working because either the bulbs have burnt out or they are not receiving power to turn them on. Check to see if you have power back there and take it from there. Throw in a good working bulb and see what happens.

I had a small leak in my 2006. I drove another 50-60k, leak never got worse...never dripped on ground.
I think it was a seepage.
I finally replaced it around 120k+, I got tired of shop 'informing' me of it. The gasket was pricey to replace.

it sounds to me like a connection problem. check all connection and try spraying some WD40 on them. it will help keep moisture out and clean electrical connection

You need to call a Nissan dealer, they will need a serial number from the back of the radio before they can give you a code.

You may have a defective vapor recovery system or a loose hose coupling between the filler and the tank. The recovery system can go bad after a lot miles/time. Also, overfilling the tank (going beyond 'one click') can damage the system.
I would replace the gas cap first, make sure it is the right kind, before having the VR system checked.

Typically there are plastic cable pulleys used in the seat retraction system that routinely fail. These have been replaced with metal ones by Honda, and are fairly cheap. Save yourself a ridiculous labor charge and go to www.ridgelineowersclub.com and search for seat - pulley - repair, etc. There are excellent descriptions on how to fix it. It will take about 30-45 min max. Make sure to replace BOTH pulleys for the rear seats. This forum is a priceless resource for Ridgeline owners. Honda Ridgeline Owners Club Forums

The seats are simply bolted to the floor. You'll need to remove the track trim pieces to see them. 14mm socket to remove them. The wiring can be disconnected easier once the seat is loose and can be tilted backward.

please ask again.
are you asking a driveline question, and is vastly complex. read it.
off the wiki, , does this help,?
the Ridgeline is powered by a transversely mounted J35A9, (2006-2008) J35Z5, (2009-present) 3.5 L V6 with a five speed automatic transmission. The all-wheel drive system operates in front-wheel drive mode under normal conditions and automatically transfers power to either rear wheel via a locking differential when it senses a loss of traction in the front. The VTM-4 system can be locked in first, second or reverse gears at speeds under 18 mph (29 km/h).
The VTM-4 lock (rear diff lock) works in full rear power mode up until 6 mph (9.7 km/h) then it gradually transitions to power to the front and releases the VTM-4 lock at 18 mph (29 km/h)
