#293 of 911 AUTO DOOR LOCK FOR ODYSSEY
Nov 25, 2004 (9:50 am)
I purchased a new 2004 Ody this past August to replace my failure prone 1996 Windstar. Happy to get rid of that POS and great to enjoy the performance and quality of the Ody.
However I wish that there was an Auto door lock feature when you accelerate from stop like there is in the Windstar and other vehicles.
Is there such an aftermarket kit available?
Why did Honda not offer this feature in the first place?
Are there any issues (safety or otherwise) that must be overcome?
Comments and suggestions are welcome.

This has been asked a few times before, but so far the answer from the Honda shop guys on the board has been no. I would love to have it also, but doesn't sound like either Honda or the aftermarket has stepped up to the challenge.

I am sure this is possible...I have a 93 accord...installed a alarm system for $149 many years ago and was offered by the installer this function of auto lock after starting the engine. I am sure it can be programmed into the circuitry....by a repair shop if not the dealer.

We have an 05 EXL Nav/RES and are considering getting the subwoofer that Honda offers. Has anyone else added this and do you like the added sound and placement?
I am wondering if I should shop around and get a better brand/quality sub.
Any words of wisdom?

as with any after market item
I would almost always recommend going with a third party i.e. a car sound dealer/installer. You'll pay alot less and likely wind up with something that is comprible or better.

I'm about of getting the touring model as well, but my wife love the 8th seater. I think you can purchase a plus one seat at the part dealer but a problem is the seat belt
#299 of 911 Mud Guard Installation?
Nov 30, 2004 (3:37 pm)
Anyone install the mudguards on an ODY themselves?
I have a new O5 EX and would like to buy OEM mud guards and install them myself to save a few $.
Is it easy to do? Just a bolt or two on each, or more involved?

Big Problem! If safety is important (big reason why we bought a Honda) then do not install any seat that doesn't have a factory seatbelt. Just my opinion here.

I installed mudguards on our 2005 Ody last weekend. It is definitely a do-it-yourself job. No drilling required. You have to cut off a plastic snap-in nut for each of the rears, but it's not bad. There is one screw on each of the rears that is difficult to reach (not much room to get your hands in close enough). I thought I might have to remove the rear wheels to get enough room to reinstall the screw. But, I kept trying and finally got it. You'll know which screw I'm talking about. I ended up standing next to the wheel and reaching in with both hands (palms-up) to reach back and get the screw started. You'll need a very short screwdriver. A little ratchet with a phillips driver bit worked well. handaaccessories.com has instructions you can print. instructions did not come in the box with the guards
