#85 of 140 rear blower problem
Feb 17, 2002 (10:36 am)
Just got ours 2 weeks ago.
has anyone had the following problem:
Rear Air - turn the fan on high, ac compressor button off. Fan speed in the rear sometimes fluctuates as you are driving around town. This only happens when the fan speed for the rear is on high.
Fluid levels- Both power steering and coolant levels were at high with cold engine. Now after 400 miles with engine cold, levels have dropped about 1/2 inch from the high mark. Is this normal during the break in?
Any break in tips.
I hear that there is special break in oil in the engine and one should not change this oil until the first 5k miles or 5 months whichever comes first.
Thanks all for your help!

Not really a problem but this seemed like the closest forum for this question. I have 3 sons, 10, 2 and infant. Where are people putting their childseats as a rule?
I'd like to put the infant in the 2nd row right seat pushed to the middle and my 2 year old in the 2nd row left seat. My 10 year old can basically sit anywhere.
I like this arrangement because it allows me to use the 3rd row magic seat without having to touch the childseats. Is safety a concern? Should I have one of the children (probably infant) in the center seat of the 3rd row? Or is anywhere but the front row more or less equally safe. (Especially considering this is about as safe of a vehicle as you can ride in).
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

It would seem this message board is not very active. Only a few new posts this year and they are mostly questions or comments to which no one replies. There must be a better forum for Odyssey questions ...

Lots of information on all Odysseys!

in the owners area and choose the "other" Problems forum. It's very active. You will also find the main comments area. I'm not sure why the moderators have not consolidated all the topics.
#90 of 140 sliding door problem-Honda should RECALL!!!
Mar 23, 2002 (5:48 am)
I have 2000 Honda Odyssey EX. I have driven about 18000 miles for two years.
Welll, it has started about 6 months ago that my driver side sliding door wasn't closing. So, I took to the dealer, and guess what. They already had plenty of part ready for my problem (sliding door latchet? I remember that I had to wait a week to get my climate control switch for my old Dodge Caravan). Anyway, this guy told me that Honda had a recall on 1999, which is same as my car but year older. He told me that my passenger side will go bad as well.
It happend about two months later. Oh well, now I have brand new door latchet for both of my sliding door.
Is my problem over? Nope.
About Month ago, (two months after they fix them), my drive side sliding door goes nut. This time, it stop working completely. Oh well, dealer told me that my computer stop working for the door. Hmmmmmm. Now Computer?
Anyway, I am on his watch out list. He asked me to call him directly, if I have same problem.
Hmmmmm. What happen if I ever moved to other city after the warranty expires?
Anyway, I think HONDA should recall the sliding door and should extend our warranty. Because it's not the mechanical problem (?), rather it's a design fault.
By the way, I have tried to put some review on this site, and it's not showing up (I did twice).
Do they only accept a good review for Honda?

They don't automatically appear when posted. It can take up to a week before they are listed on that particular model page. Check back in a few days.

I had a problem with my CR-V and after broadcasting info to various forums, several Odyssey owners reported similar problems.

#93 of 140 Elecrical Problems?
Apr 11, 2002 (10:16 am)
'00 LX -- I have had to jump the vehicle several times due to battery drain. A couple of times because of kids/lights. However, today the car lost electrical power after a 15 minute drive. It would not restart when starter engaged, with a clicking noise heard from engine. After removing the key the dashboard lit up, and then without key in-- I could raise/lower windows. Checked the boards and I haven't seen such electrical type problems reported. Maybe bad alternator?
Just read previous post (#91)... maybe this is the problem...

I'd say it's a bad ignition as no matter what the alternater does the windows can't go up and down unless the circuit is complete, which means the key is on or a faulty key switch. Happens to lots of cars, the switch goes bad. Another tip for everyone and that is if you have a car with one of those keys that has the resistor in it so your car can't be started without the proper key. If you drop it and it gets a little wet and you put it in the ignition it can temporary make your car so it can't read the signal and won't start until the key and ignition switch both dry.
