#593 of 747 bATT LOW - SEE MANUAL
Feb 05, 2011 (12:43 pm)
Bought 2011 Odyssey EX in 2010 late Dec.
Occasionally, when opening the door and switching off the vehicle after (short or long) drive,
the waring message: "bATT LOW" "SEE MANUAL" is appearing on the instrument panel.
The "b" in the message is lower case and the rest upper case.
I took it to the service and they run a diagnostic test, the battery was OK.
Is Honda is serving it's customers uncooked food?.

Does anybody know if this feature is only factory installed or if a dealer can do it?

Per the Honda website, when you build your own, it says $400 under accessories/ electronic. It also says you need a separate Backup Sensor Attachment. Looks like a dealer add-on, as it says that, prices may vary, and installation cost not included. p.s. I checked my dealer's website, and they charge $415 + $200 for the Backup Sensor Attachment, installed.
#597 of 747 Low Bettery Warning
Feb 06, 2011 (2:00 pm)
Brought back my 2011 EX for the second time yesterday because the warning kept coming up even after the test showed the battery was A-o.k. and this time they said Honda sent out a bulletin about a software update. So that's what they did but perhaps they just disabled the sensor like a precious post suggested. How would I know the difference? They were going to change the battery when I had emailed them about the problem not being fixed but they dropped that idea and did the software update instead.

Did you ask them what the "software update" entailed? Maybe it just changes the sensitivity of the sensor, or disables it. I'd be curious to know the details. I have the warning a lot, but now I just ignore it.
#599 of 747 Navi DVD location?

For the future - can't seem to find (either in the van, or in the documentation) exactly where the navigation dvd is located in the 2011 Odyssey. Anyone know?

I bought a 2011 Odyssey and have had it to the dealer 3 times for the "low batt" signal. The dealership said that Honda has come up with a new charging mechanism that requires the car be run for longer trips to charge the battery fully. So if you only go for 5 or 10 minute drives, this warning will display. I have contacted Honda corporate headquarters to complain and been told that there is nothing they can do until they hear from more owners. The dealership has recharged and replaced my battery, yet the message still exist. I STRONGLY suggest that anyone experiencing this problem call Honda and complain so a fix is created.
#602 of 747 Racheting buzz from dash
Feb 10, 2011 (11:03 pm)
My 2011 Touring with 2500 miles has a couple unusal noises and I was wondering if anyone else has noticed similar sounds. One occurs when the car is parked and comes from inside the center section of the dash and occurs generally when the door is opened from either the inside or outside of the car. It's a vibration/buzzy type of sound and cycles once or sometimes twice and lasts for about 1/2 second. Almost sounds a little rachetty too.
The other sound seems to come from the engine compartment and has a light "pinging" metallic sound that's similar to the noise made when an engine pings from using low octane gas when premium is required. It does occur most noticeably under acceleration or when under load. Tried premium gas but dfidn't notice a change.
I plan to have both noises checked at Honda when I take the car in for my first oil change. Take note DIYers, only Honda seems to have the 0W20 oil that the new 2011 engine requires and here in N. CA., it costs over $7 per quart.
