SOURCE: alternator not exciting
Hi ' If you changed the battery and alternator,
Check the voltage at the red wire on the alternator. if there a less than 12 volt.
Check the fuse link, that goes in the starter positive bolt.
If the fuse is bad replace and recheck the charging system.
IF charging normal. good.
If not, che the fuse in the fuse box, "" cluster".
If the fuse is blow out, replace. and check again.
OK. I hope this work for you.

There is a diagnostic connector on the passenger side of your Odyssey, under the dash behind the glove box.

I didn't hear you say that you took the spark plug out to see if there were any deposits on it. The best way to check a spark plug wire to see if it is doing it's job is to get a spark plug tester that you can manually screw out at 20k, 30k, 40k. Then start around 40k's and see if the spark can make the distance, but do it on all of the plugs so you can have some comparsions. Then find a range where a good known wire is making the difference than try it on the bad one. If is not making the distance and the wiring is in good shape, which wiring is measured in ohm, based on the length and you would have to look up your particular vehicle to see it's requirement per inch, but if all is good at this point; you might want to refer back to it's source, providing that the spark plug doesn't have oil deposits on it since that would be an important matter conserning your misfire.

Replace the Alternator. Sounds like the internal brushes have worn out as you appear to have the correct feeds to it. If you are tempted to open the alt to have a look at the brushes, be careful as incorrect assembly can cause serious damage as can incorrect re-assembly. You can simply replace the brushes but I would advise against it as the copper rings the brushes rub on (the slip rings) will also be worn and require replacement, this is difficult if you do not have the experience. Also, the bearings should also be replaced as they will no doubt be worn too. Altogether a specialist job, so grab yourself an new or exchange alternator. if you have to get a second hand unit, have it tested BEFORE you fit it..
