#267 of 276 'Check Fuel Cap' message on 2008 EX-L
Apr 14, 2009 (6:15 pm)
I have put in some 6K mileage. The tank was 1/4 empty when I was staring at this message.
I checked other forums and did ensure that I turned the fuel cap until I heard atleast 3 clicks. I have been through 3 or 4 engine on/off cycles / driven some 50 miles and the message doesn't go away.
Does anyone know how to get this reset? Is this a recurring problem?

Did either of you ever find the problem? My 2007 is now in day 2 at the dealership with the same issue; they continue to search for the cause. Complicating matters is the fact that it is a handicap-modified kneeling van from VMI. Since Honda cannot find the problem, they blame VMI and tell me that I'm paying them by the hour unless they can positively identify it as a Honda issue.

Have somewhat same issue with our 08. Our "brain" needs to b replaced but having issues with Honda dealership and service. Have lodged 3 complaints and still nothing has been done. The service dept has now LOST the part to our car. NO working power doors, trunk wont open at all, no a/c, temp gauge, and now lost all dash board lights...2 wks now without a car and 7 kids!!

Dealership was not able to identify the problem, but the car magically healed itself while there. They did report to me that they ran the battery dead in the process. I asked if losing battery power could possibly lead to some sort of system reboot which would explain the car's recovery & they said yes, it's possible. I hope for no recurrence, but as an experiment will disconnect the battery it does.

My van was to be fixed today but when I called yesterday to make sure part was there they called me back to inform me they had LOST the part and they THINK it was in California...they have no idea when the part will be there but they will call and let me know when they get!!! Filed my 4th complaint with Honda with no response and called management at the dealership where we bought it and haven't heard from them either..guess i will have to take it to another Honda dealership b/c this is going to b week 3 without a car and i am still having to pay for it!! I WILL NEVER buy another Honda

#274 of 276 Is map light owner replaceable?
Feb 16, 2011 (12:43 pm)
One of the map lights just went out in our Odyssey. I don't see anywhere in the manual that says I can change it myself. I'm pretty surprised given that my own car is a 2002 model and has never had a map light go out.
#276 of 276 '08 / '09 Small details question
Mar 01, 2011 (9:26 pm)
We are considering replacing our '02 Ody EX (136k miles), but my wife absolutely hates the new '11 body style. A CPO last gen Ody is a possibility. I haven't kept up with the running changes, so need some guidance on feature improvements. We are looking for an EX again - power sliders, but no leather.
1) Anybody know what year the 4 shaft auto came into use? I want to avoid the previous gen 3 shaft unit if possible.
2) I know that the mid row received power down windows with the '05 gen III body. What about the 3rd row? Did the power remote controlled flip out windows remain? Manual only? Not movable at all?
