Has anyone else found the wiring corrosion to be the solution to the intermittent starting problem? I am having the same problem with my 2007 Honda Odyssey. I have taken it to the dealer several times and they have not been able to recreate the problem in the shop; one time the kept if for a week and did not recreate the problem. It was happening a lot, i.e. almost every time we drove it. Then the ignition switch was replaced and that did nothing to resolve the issue or reduce the frequency of incidents. I finally convinced the dealer to change the starter and that reduced the frequency tremendously, but the problem was still there. Recently we had to replace the AC coil; since that time, the frequency has increased. If anyone can offer their experience with a successful solution, please let me know.

We are just starting down this path with an '07 Honda Odyssey. I agree this has been a very problematic car - transmission and a/c issues for us - definitely not what we expected from a Honda.
Full disclosure - this is not MY experience, but in researching online - I came across this link - where they discussed this being a "classic" malfunction of the neutral safety switch. If anyone finds anything else would really appreciate a post - as again - our car is sitting at the Honda Service department as we speak due to their inability to reproduce the issue on demand.
