#122 of 182 2006 EXL passenger and rear window does not work
May 14, 2011 (6:24 am)
Driver side power window is working fine but passenger side front window and th rear windows do not work. I hear a click noise but the windows would not work. I have checked the window lock switch, that does not seem to be the issue. Any idea what the issue might be?

We purchased an Odyssey touring on April 22nd 2011. It is a 2011. It had 3 miles on it when we picked it up. The TPMS light came on on the way home from the dealership and it is still on.

It turned out to be the Relay Control Module. I bought it from Bernardi Parts for $218 or so. Not cheap so I would make sure to check the fuses first, and then use a meter to see if any power is getting to lo beam socket itself.
If no power to lo beams and if you hear clicking in the Relay Control Module (under the hood by the passenger side) when you turn on the lo beams, then your headlight/turn signal combo switch is most likely good. Problem would be the lo beam relay in the RCM. There was a related TSB (05-034) (http://www.skidmore.edu/~pdwyer/e/files/tsb/a05-034.pdf)
Note: It is difficult to remove the bottom cover without breaking the tabs. Maybe that's why they make you buy the whole assembly.
Hope this helps. As a quick fix so you can drive at night, you should be able to use the high beam relay (if your hi beams work). Remove the hi beam fuses and jumper the the high beam fuse + side to the lo beam fuse + side. Kept left to left and right to right.

Has anyone taken apart the Relay Control Module in the fuse box? I replaced one because the lo beam relay was not working and want to repair the old one for a spare.
It looks like the snap tabs will need to be broken or is it better just to use a dremel to cut off the rectangular box above the relays. Any sensitive components to watch out for?

I literally purchased this car (EX-L RES) on April 1, 2011. WTF?!?!?!?!

There IS a cure for the low battery warning light. I brought my 2011 Honda Odyssey EXL RES to Serramonte Honda for the same problem that everyone is complaining about. DO NOT BRING YOUR ODYSSEY TO GRACE HONDA FOR SERVICE. GRACE HONDA WILL DAMAGE YOUR VEHICLE AND NOT TAKE ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE DAMAGES. LAWSUIT HAD BEEN FILE. Serramonte Honda working with American Honda had came up with a solution to this annoying problem. An updated battery sensor is available through American Honda for warranty work. Old sensor part number is 32600-TK8-A01. New part number is 32600-TK8-A02. The new part number is not in any Honda dealership's inventory yet. American Honda had decided to keep this in house for the time being. You can call American Honda and they will set up an appointment with Serramonte Honda for this issue. Once Serramonte Honda confirms this problem and calls American Honda, American Honda will over-night the new part out for replacement and the problem goes away! Good luck to all the 2011 Honda Odyssey owners. Ask for Alex Lam, service advisor, who is super professional in handling the matter. Request for tech Hao Liang to work on your Odyssey. He is an excellent tech and knows how to do the job right the first time around. I had just pick up my Odyssey with no more problems! Take care.

Could you point me to some web page that explain those hundred mA? That's the issue I am experiencing. I lost 2 batteries within 9k miles. I insert my multimeter and it max out the 100mA reading. I think this is way too high when the car is off.
The battery has a capacity of 50ah. If it's draining at 100mA, it will drain half of the battery (which make it very hard, if not impossible to start the engine) within 250 hours. I don't think Honda engineers are so stupid to have those kind of parameters in their minds.

Did you figure out what caused that 0.4A draw? I have the same issue with my 07. Thanks.

Actually I think I solved the problem. I kept pulling fuses till the battery draw went to almost zero. There is a fuse panel on the drivers side near the emergency brake pedal. I pulled out the 7 AMP fuse marked "BACK-UP". With this out, the .4 amp draw went away. I drove with it out for a day, but certain things did not work- Power side doors, alarm, lock(ignition off), rear wiper, rear dome light, and others. I could live with that if it saved my Battery. However, I now re-installed the 7 AMP fuse- and everything again works, with no .4 Amp battery draw. ??? maybe something reset in a control module. If I ever have the problem again I will pull the fuse. Better option than having to use a battery charger every night.
#131 of 182 2004 Honda Odyssey engine stops while driving
Jun 18, 2011 (8:42 am)
My Odyssey would stop running while driving-highway, local roads, any speed, any weather, any common road/weather/distance. It did this several times. I tool it to two dealers several times- they ran diagnostics but found nothing because the "Check Engine" light did not come on which means that no ERROR CODE was stored in the computer.
Final solution- After dealer had it and drove it everyday, the problem was discovered- no communication to power control module (PCM). They performed a " No communication test" and found a Faulty Main Relay!! All I can say is that the FP# on the invoice is 39400-S84-003. $64.78 for the part and, no surprise these days- labor was $230.00. Before you have it replaced by a dealer, see if the part can be ordered and install it yourself or have your local mechanic do it for you.
