#162 of 190 2010 Odyssey electrical nightmare
Oct 11, 2012 (9:22 am)
I have a 2010 Honda Odyssey that no longer recognizes the keys when I open the doors and sets off the anti-theft system (horn, flashers, shuts of radio, etc.). I can not operate any of the buttons inside the car (sliding doors, windows, locks, rear hatch) and have to remove the horn fuse to prevent a 2 minute anti-theft alarm every time I open the doors, hood, etc. However, to drive the car, I need to wait for the anti-theft system to reset, re-install the horn fuse and then I can drive the car but once I open the door the anti-theft system triggers again.
To make matters worse, I am in the US military and stationed in Germany so the local Honda dealers don't know what to do and Honda America refuses to send any technical information for the German mechanics to trouble shoot with. Honda America keeps telling me they don't know what the problem is so they don't know what to send to the German dealer. Sheehy Honda, where I bought the car, has been little help, although they at least provided me with a recommendation to reset the key fob, unfortunately, that did not solve the problem.
Can anyone provide advice?

Can't they change the ignition lock and give you a new key fob and reset? They should do something given the vehicle is still under warranty.
#165 of 190 Honda Odyssey Power Seat

Looks like I'm having electrical problems with my drivers side power seat. 2001 model, EX, seat will raise and lower but just the back half. Will not recline, will not move forward or backward (actually its all the way back so not sure if this is a problem) Took the cowling off to view, difficult to get the hole piece off because the mount screw in the back can only be accessed if I move the seat all the way forward (which is a problem now)
Not sure where to put the voltmeter probes and what the numbers will mean. Changed the fuse to no avail. Tapped and fidgeted with connections underneath - to no avail.

I have a 2005 Honda Odessey van, I had the dealership install a command start on it when I purchased it 3 Yeats ago. Having issues with the door locks, they always lock about 1 minute after I have unlocked them. It does not matter if the keys are in the ignition or not, the doors always locks. You have to be careful because if you start the van then get out to put stuff in the doors will lock when you are out. Have also had issues with the alarm going off a couple of times when I hit unlock when I am already in the van with it running. Even if I am driving and hit the unlock button the alarm sometimes goes off.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Try this: Disconnect battery, wait for more than 20 seconds, and put it back on.
My 2001 Odyssey has a few electrical problems: alarm kicks off without reason, radio noise, and all four turning lights kept on even engine turned off and light switches off. After this "power reboot" today, all problems are gone, at least so far for 2 hours.
Hope this can help you.
If anyone has more suggestions, please let us know.
#169 of 190 DASH CLUSTER LIGHTS ETC.. HONDA ODYSSEY
Jan 11, 2013 (11:05 am)
Does anyone have the hook up or a link to a master list of all the size bulbs I would need for the dash lights on a 1999-2004 Honda Odyssey?? Not for the outside or map lights, but for the just for the dash lights, clock, all the small cluster lights etc. I know there is the main dash cluster, clock, ac control, fan blower switch, rear ac/heat switch, rear doors, CC, etc... Are they all different sizes?? How many bulbs total?

Have you got the problem figured out yet? I am having the exact same problem. Sometimes the lights just flicks and the car kept going (no issues), but sometimes the engine would stall as well.

I believe the problem was a loose connection in the bell housing of the transmission. Unfortunately, the tranny failed again and had to be replaced again. I have since traded the vehicle in for something new.
