Question about 2001 Honda Odyssey
Check engine light won't go away, so replaced EGR valve and cleaned EGR port. When I put everything back and tried to start the engine, the battery sparked - and nothing. The engine never turned over. Now when I turn the key, the panel lights would come on. But when I try to turn over the engine, nothing happens and all lights on instrument panel go out. Did I create a short?

-after you change the part you have to reset/clear the code
-this can be done by either:
(1) using the OBD2 code reader that Autozone used OR since option 2 (below) is very quick
(2) disconnecting the battery for about 30 seconds (this will delete all codes/radio presets/etc) but it will also clear the 'check engine' code
-this is what I do AFTER i write down my radio station presets :)
-hopefully the new EGR valve resolves your issue after you CLEAR the code
...but that code just means a an insufficient amount of Exhaust Gas recirculation (pressure difference) used to keep the emissions in check
-if it comes back, then there are a few other fixes to try also
-let me know if you need further assistance
-please remember to rate me `fix-ya`if it works

SOURCE: Cleaned out egr intake and
It's the non-OEM EGR valve. I had the same problem, replaced the EGR valve with one bought at O'Reilly's, light came back on. Spent the $ to have the intake cleaned out too, and light came back on driving home from the shop. Mechanic suggested using a Honda EGR part as it has a different port opening as the non-OEM part. Sure enough, light has stayed out since. Took non-OEM EGR valve back to O'Reilly's and **** enought to get a refund on it.

I had the same code/symptoms a few weeks ago. Dealer did a nice job checking through all the details. Replaced the egr too, but no improvement. Finally found one cylinder not firing correctly (not the same pressure as the other cylinders.) Dealer did a value clean/adjustment, for about $250, and the problem has been gone for about a month now. We are also getting about 15% better mileage.
Hope this helps.

The problem with an aftermarket catalytic convertor is the quality of the material that is in them. Used factory Honda convertors can be sold for 75 dollars. A used aftermarket catalytic convertor will sell for 5 dollars. If u truely want to fix this problem, you need to save up for a new Honda convertor and buy it.
