I read your posting about your van. I have the same van and experienced similar for past couple of weeks. I have a 1999. Rough idle when starting up, then I turn off and try again and it's fine. Then one day a picture of the key flashing on the dashboard indicating didn't recognize the key and then went dead on a realatively new battery. Car repair cannot duplicate after putting in a new battery. I'm sure it'll happen again. Was thinking of taking it to Honda dealer. I know it's more exspensive but they must have heard of t his problem before.
So my question to you is what did you find out it was? Or did you ever?
Also when I park and take the key out it make a dull whinning sound.
#55 of 190 Weird door and then NO power issue.

I have a 07 Honda Oydessy that we bought used 6 months ago. the issue you open the rear sliding door and then get in to start it and EVERYTHING is dead (radio, clock, no sound on start up). You then reshut the door (which has power) and it then starts right up......This has happend 2x in the last 3 days. The second time she slammed the driver door and it worked. What does the doors have to do with the battery not giving power?
please help solve this mystery!

I took my van to a nearby dealership but guess what! It didn't happen when the service adviser tried several times on the spot. The van worked fine without any issues. It was embarrasing but my can still has the same issue from time to time. I don't know what to do.

You need to change your starter. The starter clutch slips when you hear zeeee, especially when it's hot.

Thanks to this forum. I printed out a copy of SB in regards to the engine pinging (knocking) and get the knocking sensor replaced on my wife's 2007 Odyssey yesterday. Now the annoying pinging is gone! If anyone is having the pinging issue, I will strongly recommend to get it fixed at a dealer.

Hi actually it was the main relay, making the noise. No issues not.

Mine just started doing the same thing. I bought the thing so I could unlock and open and get the kids in. Also have issues with the radio controls on steering wheel getting crossed. Never, and I do mean NEVER, again.

My '04 did that on the passenger's side vent just a few months out of warranty. Dealer said it would cost a lot to fix and I told him to stuff it. The other vent works fine. It's odd, because I only used the thing a few times. I really hate this vehicle and its many small, but hugely annoying, problems.
#62 of 190 odyssey switch in mess after a dead battery
Jun 08, 2009 (6:02 am)
My car is a 2002 Odyssey. Due to my forggeting turning off a small overhead light, I had a dead battery. After jump start, seems many switches are in a mess (even thought the car is perfectly drivable):
Mainly on driver side switches, the door lock not working; cannot control the passenger side window from driver side (but the switch on passenger side has no problem to control its window); even more weird, the light of the shift indicator (indicates if the shift is on P, R, N, D, D2) is light up normally, but if I trun on the car's main lights, that indicator dims down. Seems the whole car's logic in a mess. Please help me!
#63 of 190 Poltergeist in Electrical System
Jul 10, 2009 (5:21 am)
I have a 2002 EX that I bought new. The van now has 140,000 miles on it, but I have had electrical issues for most of the past 7 years. I went through the vents now operating and they were fixed by the dealer. I go through head lights and brake lights way too often. However, the big issues that I have had, no one can seem to find the problem. It started about 3 years ago when my horn would not sound when I locked the car. This would occur for a couple weeks then it would start again. Later, my brake light would flash on and off. Again, repair shop could not find any issues. The car locks will just unlock for no reason or the alarm will sound for no reason. My TCS and SRS lights now blink on and off as well. Again, the mechanic cannot locate what the issue is. Has anyone else out there had this problem?
