Question about 2004 Honda Odyssey

1 Answer

My 2004 Odyssey has recenlty developed an unknown problem. After the van has sat overnight, the next morning, after the van has been started, when I open the back passenger door it beeps like it would if the van was in gear. Once I shut the door and try to change the gears from "park" to any other gear the shifter will not move. Any ideas???

One thing you could try ,is remove both battery cables,leave them off for 3 Min's then connect the negative one first,then the positive, this will re boot the pcm,(power control modual), MAKE SURE THE IGNITIONS SWITCH IS OFF,AND REMAINS OFF. somme times the pcm gets a little confused or who knows! but its worth a shot be for u spend a lot of $, good luck to u.

Sounds like water may have gotten by your windshield and or on some major wiring and control wires. This may dry out and go away, but use caution, if you have rodents as well. I would check under dash and van and see if there is any signs of chewed wires. Happend with my friends van and it would start and then die bells go off, click when key turned on. inspect carefully..

My gran vitara has trouble starting in the morning, when it has been sat all night, then the rest of the day it is fine, does it need clean filters??or is the battery wearing out?or any other ideas you can...

You have a defective battery. Overnight, it leaks off power. In the morning when you start it by jump starting (or a push) and it runs, the alternator will charge it, making it good the rest of the day. Then again the power will be drained overnight due to the shorted battery components.
