Question about 2001 Honda Odyssey

1 Answer

TCS and Engine Light

I have an 01 Honda Odyssey with 64000 miles. After purchasing gas the TCS light and the Engine Light come on. The TCS light usually goes out after the vehicle is operated a few times and often the Engine Light also will go out. Usually the Engine light will go off prior to having to purchase gas again. I understand that the cause can be anything from a bad gas cap to the need to replace a more expensive part. Is there any way to test the gas cap before buying a new one to see if that is the problem? Any other suggestions? Also the clock light is out. Is there easy access to replace it?

I would recommend you have someone check the computer for trouble codes first. The codes will direct you as to what needs to be tested.

Horsecrap...go to an independent transmission dealer after you call the extended warranty folks and complain!
I can count the number of Honda transmissions that go bad before 300,000 miles on one hand.
Good Luck

SOURCE: tcs light and engine check light on my 2000 honda odyssey

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.

There are several things that will turn the check engine light and TCS light on .If you get the code I can tell you exactly what the problem is . On your year i see transmission problems as well as EGR problems. If you go to any large auto parts store they will check the code for free or a very small fee.

TCS is a separate issue from PCM code. I would disconnect the plug from PCM and clean with contact cleaner. Most of the times humidity creates corrosion on the pins.

TCS is Traction Control. There should be a speed sensor at the drive wheels. If they are not reading properly, this will cause the light to come on.

I have a 1999 honda odyssey.


Take it to Autozone and get them to read the code. If it is a minor problem (i.e., needs new gas cap) fix it and I would disconnect the battery for about 10 minutes and reset the check engine light. It should go off. If it is a serious problem it will come back on. If not it will stay off.

Before you do this get the radio code as disconnecting the battery will disable your radio and you will have to enter a code. It should have come with the car, If not call the dealer and he should be able to give it to you.

Good luck.
