Question about 2003 Honda Odyssey
The van doesn't know if the door is open or closed. At times the cabin lights come on (like they do when a door is open) while driving and no doors are open. Other times when the door and only that door are open the lights don't come on and the alarm doesn't go off if that door is open when you are moving like it does with the other door. Also when you go over bumps at times it will set off the alarm that the door is open when it isn't. I have wiped down the contacts and cleaned the track it runs on and still no luck. Is it the sensor in the door or something somewhere else? I hate going to the dealer and having them rip me off and not even fix the problem.
It sounds like you are on the right track if you have cleaned the contacts sufficiently i would go ahead and replace them

I have a factory manual for 1999-2004 but I believe the filter is in the same location on a 2005. First, you have to remove the glove box. It's a straight forward process with a phillips head screwdriver and a 10mm socket. The filter is in the middle of the black plastic air handler behind the glove box. It is in a vertical slot covered by a narrow "door" with clips on top and bottom. If it has never been changed before, you will have to cut out the horizontal plastic cross brace that kept the dash assembly from warping during manufacture. Cut with a hack saw at each end of the plastic brace and remove it. You'll notice a metal cross brace that can be removed with screws at each end. Once the braces are removed, it is easy to unclip the filter door and replace the filter. Then just put everything back except the plastic cross brace you removed; it can be thrown out.

SOURCE: My 2007 Odyssey sliding door
It is either the stabilizer spring on the latch that is attached to the door, or slack in the cable inside the track. Mine is doing the same thing and need to find out how to access the track. I am going to start by looking if the cable has slack and can be adjusted. Good luck, if I get any progress I will update!

I have the same problem...maybe not as bad, however. The bearings in the 'roller' that guides the door down the track have deteriorated. Midas said the roller isn't rolling so they greased the track. Could be that the kids have let the door fly open too many times, especially when parked on an incline (LX model, no power doors). Anyway, it looks like an 8 dollar 'roller'...no biggie...but Midas said the whole door would have to come off to change that roller. I'm getting by for now and have not personally looked to see if I can change it without taking the door off. Saving that 'look-see' for Summer.
