Question about 1997 Honda Odyssey

1 Answer

Car starts and stops, if i keep the key at turned on possition,

Honda odyssey 1996 starts and then stops in few sec.
if the keep the key rotated all the way it runs... ( in normal conditions, it will make rattle noice, to remind us the engine is running)

for the last 2 weeks, it starts and then stops, after 3 or 4 attempt it starts and runs. I added Fuel injection cleaner, it ran 3 to 4 days, then started again.( more 1/4 tank gas is left with the added Fuel injection fluid)

Pls. let me know what could be the cause ...
Thank you

Hello, honda has a problem with the key switch shorting out. mostly becuase there is to much weight on the key ring. the electrical part of the switch looses contact in run mode. replace the ingtion switch electrical part. this should solve the problem

2001 honda odyssey...what does green "key" light on dash indicate?


that green key is the immobilizer system indicator. It comes on for a few seconds when you turn the key to ON. It will then go off if you have inserted a properly coded key. If the key isn't coded properly, the green key indicator will flash and the engine won't start. The indicator also blinks several times when you turn the key from ON to Acc or Lock. This is normal. (From owner's manual under "Indicator Lights")

1996 Honda Odyssey strange, intermittent ABS problem


If you are absolutely sure that the all the abs sensors are good. Then the only other factors are the abs unit itself and the abs computer. Please have the system checked with a a scanner to make sure. Remember the only way to an ABS light will reset is by driving the vehicle and if every component of the system is fine the light will go out. Because your light is on there is a problem in the system and your abs is not functioning when the light is ON .Good Luck

We found our solution...a new ignition. :-( One day the key stuck in the ignition and refused to be removed! It cost us around $350.00 to have a new ignition installed. No way around it.
