#131 of 190 2004 Honda Odyssey engine stops while driving
Jun 18, 2011 (7:42 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.

I had the same problem with my 2011 EX-L. It's not the symbol I expected for low tire pressure (The semi-circle with a candle in the middle) but the dealer put some air in the tires and TPMS light went off.

I have a 2004 Honda Odessey who's battery died every two days. After replacing the alternator and battery, I finally found a bad mg clutch relay (this is the AC relay) in the engine fuse box. This caused a 3 amp draw causing the battery to discharge rapidly.
I hope this helps!
#137 of 190 Honda Odyssey Electrical Problem
Oct 15, 2011 (3:56 pm)
While driving my 1999 Honda Odyssey (with ~85K miles) the van temporarily lost power. AC, radio went out for a few seconds and then the dashboard lights came on (like when the van is started). Van ran OK after that. I took my van to a local autoshop and they said it was a loose battery cable. All was OK until the other day when it happened again. I checked the cable connections and they seem to be good to go. I even jiggled the cables while the engine was on. BTW, + cable was replace 6-8 months ago. I did not see "check engine" light during the power interruption.
I plan to take the van to Honda Dealer but I have limited confidence they will find a solution. Any suggestions on what I should suggest to the mechanic? Communications test to power control unit, etc?

I've had the same problem and haven't been able to diagnose it despite taking it to the dealer 3 times. Basically the Navigation/radio seem to go out while driving. And as usual it never occurs when at the dealership, but happened about 6 times while driving to them. I thought it was a loose cable to the battery and removed it/ retightened it without much help. I also looked at all of the fuses, but they all looked ok. Suspect it has to something to do w/ the Navigation system since that is what keeps resetting, but will just have to wait to find out.
#139 of 190 2011 Odyssey, MULTIPLE electrical problems
Nov 08, 2011 (7:06 pm)
Okay, this is our third Odyssey. It will be our last. Bought it brand new in late March. By end of April, battery died with about 500 miles on it. I figured it was just a crappy underpowered battery so I replaced with $200+ Sears Diehard Platinum. Thought that would resolve the problem, but instead we have experienced ALL of the following on MULTIPLE occasions: (i) Low Battery Warning; (ii) Low Tire Pressure Warning; (iii) keypad transmitter won't unlock door, and car won't start (as if battery dead again) - call AAA, and while waiting for them, 20 min later car starts as if nothing happened and locks work again (this has happened 3 separate occasions with no rhyme or reason); (iv) voice command button occasionally results in 15 minute delay before command can be given; (v) phone calls draopped on bluetooth after about 5 seconds. Three trips to Honda Service already, and, of course, none of this happend while there (except for low pressure light) and they say everything is normal. In New York, 4th strike means lemon law. This is the 8th new Honda I have owned and I am absolutely appalled. I would warn anybody who is thinking of buying an Odyssey to WAIT until Honda figures out what the heck it has done to this model! Our 2007 was fine, except for the pain in the butt run-flats that got about 15K miles. This car is absolute garbage. It has turned a big Honda fan into a real doubter.

Update to my 99 Honda Odyssey Electrical Problem. After researching the probem online, I had the dealer replace the ignition switch and the van runs fine now. Of course the dealer couldn't find anything wrong when they drove it. Anyway, this is my second ignition switch since the part was recalled and replaced back in early 00's.
