#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.
#172 of 190 2008 Odyssey EX battery drain
Apr 13, 2013 (7:47 am)
Yesterday morning my wife's car wouldn't start. AAA came out and tested the battery and told us there was an open diode in the alternator causing a battery drain. He said it should be towed as it was unsafe to drive. I had it towed to the dealer as we have an extended warranty. However, the dealer told me their tests showed nothing wrong with the alternator, but there is a dead cell in the battery. Since I bought the battery from AAA I had them come and meet me at the dealer to test it again. He couldn't even get a reading on the battery to be able to replace it and his drain test still showed something is draining the battery. Nothing was on in the car. His reading was showing the battery hovering around 1.40 amps during the drain test. He told me there's nothing wrong with the battery (though I don't know how he can tell) and I have an electrical problem. I'm going to take it somewhere else and see if they are able to troubleshoot it.

I had the exact same problem. Have them check the AC Switch Relay. I did some research on here when I had my problem and had them check it. That is what it was. The relay fails and remains open and draws power even when the van is off. They say it is not a widespread problem, but it is. Good luck, but I betcha that is your problem. I would take it back to Honda to look at.

Would that be something covered under an extended warranty? I made an appointment with my regular mechanic but I wonder if I should just go back to the dealer. Thanks.

Mine was not, yours might be depending on the warranty. It was a $9 part and about $240 in labor. I called and talked to the service manager and we ended up splitting the cost. I would push on them real hard about covering it, especially since they couldnt find it and it cost you a battery. I would take it back to Honda.

I saw your post on edmunds.com of Nov 07, 2010 about your honda odyssey battery drain with The engine suddenly had an unusual crack pop noise. (It sounded like a live electrical wire touching metal.) I have the same problem with my 2008 odyssey. I also believe it was one of your posts that pointed towards the radio being the problem. My question is did you ever find a solution to this problem. Currently we are not in a position to buy another vehicle. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Survey says... show me "AC relay!" Ding ding ding!!
That, and he told me the alternator voltage was a little low so he's replacing that as well since it's covered. He seemed to imply all I'd have to pay is about $8 for the relay. I'd better not have to pay the labor...
