#63 of 100 A/C not blowing cold
May 25, 2010 (10:55 pm)
My 2000 Odyssey is not blowing cold air. When I turn the a/c on it is blowing, but not getting cold. It has been checked for freon and I have been told that there is no leak. I recently took it to Pep Boys and was told it was the compressor along with hoses,etc,etc. When I asked the guy about the fan not moving he didn't even know what I was talking about, so how do I know he's telling the truth. I know the fan doesn't move when I turn the air on and I don't want to pay$1000 to get this fixed.
#64 of 100 AC compressor died - 2007 EX-L

Our AC compressor died today at 77,000 miles, we just replaced the power steering pump 3,000 miles ago!
Honda needs to "beef up" their warranty or people will start looking elsewhere!
#65 of 100 04 Odyssey climate control
Jun 05, 2010 (2:42 am)
The A/C blows warm air only, and only when fan is on max. Dealer first replaced a $160 A/C "switch". Dealer said this worked 30 seconds, then failed. Dealer now says I need $540 Climate Control unit.
I'm hugely disappointed in Honda. What is next to go wrong? I have purchased Hondas for the past 20-30 years because of their quality. I'm not sure if my next vehicle will be a Honda.
#66 of 100 How Do I Remove Ceiling vent covers?? Help!!!!!
Jun 07, 2010 (10:08 am)
I need to remove an air vent for the ceiling interior. One of my kids was plaing with the louvers that direct the air and unsnapped the plastic louvers from the piece they snap into. It can be put back togther if I could figure out how to remove that trim piece from the ceiling. Anyone ever do that?? Thanks

Dealer is probably clueless... look at forum for replacing the blower motor resistor (transistor assembly) part number 79330-S84-A41... I have a 2004 Odyssey too... with the same symptoms...(The A/C blows warm air only, and only when fan is on max.)
I bought the part at the dealer today for $75 and replaced it myself... A/C is up and running and fan works at all speeds again.
#68 of 100 AC stopped working on brand new Odyssey
Jul 14, 2010 (7:12 am)
My AC has stopped working on my 2010 Odyssey that I purchased 1 month ago. It only has 1400 miles on the car. They are diagnosing the problem but said they can tell the compressor is not engaging. Has anyone else had a problem this early on - I'm very concerned about what this holds for the future.
#70 of 100 My 2005 honda air conditioning is broken. $1500 estimate from dealer
Jul 15, 2010 (7:48 am)
My honda air conditioning had stopped working last year and this year finally we got around to taking it to the dealer. I was shocked too at the cost of replacing the compressor. I have been reading the posts and looks like it's a common problem but Honda is not acknowledging it. Should I bother calling them at all or just bite the bullet and get the repairs done ? I'm not a very confrontational person so don't want to call up the dealer or Honda CS and argue about it if there is no luck. Any help will be appreciated.

Do you have a good relationship with the service dept - meaning are you a regular customer and give them high scores on surveys? If so, ask the service advisor to contact Honda on your behalf for a good will gesture - that you've heard there have been issues with the A/C. No need to be confrontational - just ask. The worst they will say is no.
If you don't have that relationship - you're probably out of luck.
Most dealerships have "silver bullets" they can use for good customers. I know I could go to my dealership with my 2000 Ody with 105K if the tranny went and they'd find a way to help me out. I do all my service there and give them high scores. They like me since I'm a profitable customer and they are willing to go the extra mile. Too many folks forget that.
#72 of 100 a/c blowing hot air like a car salesman!
Jul 16, 2010 (1:40 pm)
I am having similar a/c problem - but the defrost won't engage, and can't change the blower location (where the air blows out from) - none of the lights on the a/c dash work, but the fan blows at different speeds (hot air, not cooled). I am thinking maybe it's the transistor based on posts. I found this online and it may help people. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ByacfcUJSYA Hopefully it's okay to post the video, it's not great quality, but shows you the location of the transistor 79330-s84-A41 Honda, or JA1428 Autozone. Good luck and hopefully this works for me. I checked all fuses first, and pressure seems okay, actually a bit high. but that shouldn't affect if the a/c blows and the lights, only the compressor I would think.
