Re: 2006 honda Odyssey front fan quit
I'm not sure where you are based, but with most new vehicles there is a 3 year or 60,000 mile warranty, so it should be covered under that if there is a fault. I recommend taking it to the dealer if the warranty is still current, otherwise if it is not you could check through the fuses to make sure it's not just a blown fuse, maybe check the wiring to the fan motor under the dash to make sure it's still plugged in and not damaged, and (with the key on and the heater fan switched on) check for power to the fan motor with a testlight. If there is power there then the fan motor is faulty, if not then there is fault with the control system, but that is probably about as far as you could go at home. Obviously if the fan is faulty you could replace it yourself if it's easily accessible. Any further faults would need a Honda dealer or good auto electrician to diagnose.

Sounds like a fuse or relay/solenoid issue.
Fuse box is in the back left hand corner of the engine compartment. The "map" to show you which fuse/relay is which is printed right on the inside of the fuse box cover.
Worth the $5 or so to replace the fuses or solenoids.
check the ac blower transistor under passenger side of dash behind the blower motor. on my 2003 compressor would not cut on , front blower only operated on high an blew hot air, rear blew on all speed but only hot air. $58.00 at dealer plus tax. 15 minute fix. there is a video on youtube that documents the process. just fixed today
Yikes! The transmission has gotten a lot of complaints, but $3500 sounds high. You should be able to find a used one for about $1200, Power steering is no big deal, unless you were in a wreck, and the front end alignment is $75. So somebody is wanting your wallet and your kids and your dog. I would get a second opinion on all that. The van isn't that old. And 140,000 miles, it is just getting broke in. I have 250,000 miles on my rodeo, and the tranny just quit. I got a whole truck for parts with tranny for $400. Took out the tranny, and a bunch of parts, and sold a bunch of parts, and then sold the truck for $400! Not bad. Hope this helps.
It is too new for it to be a worn out fan motor so it must be either a fuse blown or a bad swithch. Check the fuse first - it's easy and cheap to fix so always try the easiest fix first.
Now I am assuming you do not hear the fan blowing. If I am wrong let me know.
If the fuses check out (look for them under dash and under hood) then you can take the switch out and test it with a volt meter. Hook up the two leads from the switch and see if you get continuity when on and also at each speed. I have seen fans work at only one speed and not the others.
Does it work at any speed? Or does it simply not come on?
