Driver side sliding door sensor not working? 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.

SOURCE: where is the cabin air filter of 2005 Odyssey located

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!

SOURCE: 2006 Honda Odyssey sliding door bushing is gone

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.

The lock on the power sliding door (driver's side)


You should be able to manually unlock the door and open it,even without the power lock working.The center roller on these vans is prone to wear,causing binding and misalignment of the electrical connectors that you see when the door is open.This may cause the locks to be disabled and the door to not open with the power button.There are three rollers on each door,but many times only the center one is worn out.The installation & alignment of the rollers is critical on this vehicle,so you should consider the dealer for this repair. good luck

2002 Honda Odyssey: sliding door jolts/reopens when closing


Please check the aft track roller assembly. It is easiest to inspect from the rear of the van looking forward when the door is open. You'll see the rear hinge assembly clearly. The track rollers cannot be seen but you can pull outboard on the rear edge of the door--the door should not move outboard more than 1/8 of an inch. If it moves out more than this or feels sloppy, suspect damaged/missing track rollers. This will cause the hinge to chatter in the track and "jolt". It will also cause the door to misalign during the close phase preventing the close motor from properly engaging.
Replacing this part is no easy task but doable if you are good with cars. Check back here for more details if you want to try it, otherwise get a competent mechanic or the Honda dealership to do it.

Sliding power doors will not open


Just had the same problem with my '05 van. I put the Master Switch in the off position. I pulled fuse #7 on the driver side sub panel, located just above the engine hood release. I then disconnected the neg. terminal on the battery. I manually opened the pass. side slider and closed it.

I reconnected the battery and replaced fuse #7. I put the master door switch in the on position. I activated the auto door switch, and it worked.

Sliding door driver side won't open


I had the same problem and it ended up being the sensor for the gas door. Another symptom in my case was the gas door not openning. The sensor doubles as a spring to pop the gas door open. I didn't want to mess up my storage compartment like danielbeaty, but it was harder. I took the kickplate off and the trim from around the rear panel, and a couple of screws, and was able to reach in and unplug the sensor. I'm in the process of posting the procedure in more detail.
