#1 of 190 Honda Odyssey Electrical - 2007

Locks, internal lights and DVD player ?!?
I hope this isn't duplicative....3 issues/questions as mentioned above. I have 2007 EX-L with DVD with less than 5K miles.
Every once in a while, the auto lock feature seems to kick in (after the locks have already been auto locked). It does seem like it occurs on acceleration after a stop so it could be the ABS test that I have read about here. How often (monthly or weekly) is the ABS supposed to test itself and how long is it supposed to last (an entire local trip...20 mins)? This has happened 3-4 times so far.
Next, the indoor dome lights turn on and off while driving when they are set in the middle function (to turn on when the car is opened and then off after a bit). It seems like this happens in connection with the ABS but am not quite sure. This too has happened 3-4 times. Any thoughts?
Lastly, anyone's DVD make noises when a dvd is in the player but is not being played and has not been used for a few days?
#2 of 190 Vent Window Motors
Jul 04, 2007 (10:06 am)
Hey everyone! I have a quick question to see if any one else has had this issue. I have a '04 model and one day about four months ago, the vent windows stopped working. When I push the buttons, I can here the motor receive the signal, but nothing happens. When I had the A/C fixed, a separate issue, I had my mechanic check it out. He stated that the motors were burned out. That makes me think that there is another issue like a short or something to burn both out. Has anyone else had this issue? When I talked to my service rep on the phone here in Alabama, he stated it was the first time he had heard of it. Thanks for any feedback.

My friend, TAKE IT BACK to the dealer and have them fix that problem. Do not leave dealer without them fixing. I live in NY and had the same auto locking problem. Dealer DID NOT give me any hassle...they just change alarm system/box and problem was solved.

I think this is aknown issues from Honda Van.
Myself have a 2003 Honda van, the left vent windows without use for more than a year but stopped working!, I did bring it back to dealer for replacing the motor, after I own my van over 3 years the the right vent windows stopped working! I bring it back to dealer and they said it will cost me $380 for repair !.
I have 3 different friend has the same issue.

I have less than 150 miles on my new 07 Honda Odyssey EX-L and the driver's side power window won't go back up. All the other windows work fine. Anyone else have this problem?

#7 of 190 Power Locks - Passenger side not engaging
Oct 01, 2007 (12:51 pm)
I have a 2000 Odyssey. Recently the passenger side door lock would not engage using powerlock. Every time I have to manually lock and unlock the door. Has anyone faced similar issue and how did you fix it? My mechanic advises that the lock actuator has to be replaced and estimates about $135. Is there an alternative fix to this?

Is it the front passenger door or the sliding door? I have an '04 (for sale - anyone want to buy??) with the same problem on the passenger side power slider. Only seems to happen when it's really hot though, say over 90 degrees F. It's just one of the many minor electrical problems that rear up whenever the weather turns hot. Rear wing windows, steering wheel radio controls also affected. I've never had it fixed though because we replaced it with a Sienna in August and the Ody has been sitting in the driveway... out of sight, out of mind.
#9 of 190 Rear Wiper turns on by itself
Oct 03, 2007 (8:18 pm)
My 2007 Ody rear wiper sometimes turns on by itself. It was triggered by I put the lever down one click for intermit front wiper.
Everthing goes fine again after I turned the rear wiper knob back/forth a couple times. Seems to me the wiper switch has sort of short circuit inside.
#10 of 190 Sliding door open then doors lock back up
Oct 08, 2007 (10:30 am)
I'm having a problem that is driving me crazy. I use the remote to unlock then open a sliding door. I put my child in his seat in the 2nd row and while I'm doing this the doors click/lock back up. So now I have to remember to open the driver's door first even though I'm not getting in yet. I'm afraid of a potential lock out with the kids in the car. I wonder why this is happening-- and if others have had this same problem. Oh it is a 2002. Thanks.
