Question about 2005 Honda Odyssey

1 Answer

Can not open any door using the key or remote control.

I went out to my 2007 Honda Odyssey this morning and could not open the doors. The remote would not work so I tried the key. It did not unlock the doors either. HELP!

    Are you telling me that if your battery goes dead and your doors are locked you have to have a mechanic unlock them? I can't unlock my car with the physical key if the battery is dead?

    This might be the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard, but I'm guessing there is some truth to it because I am in the same boat. Battery is dead, remote doesn't work and neither does the key.

Hmm, probably a dead battery. The problem with those locks is that they are electrically actuated, not mechanically unlocked. Thats why the key turns easily. If you turn and hold it to the unlock position, and the battery is okay, the windows will roll down. If they dont, then its the batt. Call a mechanic.

Where is the reset button located in a 2003 Honda Odyssey for the anti theft?

If the remote was programmed before loss of power, push and hold the unlock button until the alarm stops. If not try locking and unlocking the drivers side door with the the key. This has reset the alarm on my 2001 Odyssey.

You will also need the unlock code to reactivate your stereo after long term power loss. It is on a card with the manual given to the owner of new vehicles. A smart dealer will put it on a sticker in the glove box. Otherwise you have to remove the radio and give a Honda dealer the radio serial number to get the unlock code. Don't try it randomly; 10 incorrect tries locks the stereo.

Do the other functions work on the remote, like will it lock the doors? The batteries in a 2006 remote should just be wearing down so maybe they need replacement. Do you have the second remote and if you do, is it working?

My remote for my honda odyssey won't work, I

The following URL will take you to an on-line manual for your Odyssey. You will need Adobe Reader (free from Adobe) to read it, and you can't save it except in sections, but you could print out whatever info you need. The remote is covered on page 81 (go there from the index). You might check to see if you got the polarity right on the battery change, then it might become a matter or replacing the remote.

Hope this helps you.
