2005 Honda Odyssey Tailgate Problem

I left the radio on with th etailgate open while working in the garage and the battery run flat. I closed all doors and the tailgate, jumped the Odyssey. Since then the tailgate does not want to stay open. When I press the open tailgate button the tailgate lift up to the top, bounce three times and the close again. The door lift up by itself so I do not think it is the pistons.

    If you have an owners manual, look up on how to "re-home" the doors. There is a procedure to follow when the doors get out of sync' due to a power loss. I have a 2002 Ody without the electric tailgate so my manual doesn't have the steps for the tailgate.

2005 Honda Odyssey does not start (no lights, no sound)

It sounds like you have either a Bad Alternator or a loose Belt or even a loose Battery Connection. The radio will only do this when the Battery is bad or has been changed out. Check the Belt Tension and the Battery Terminals for tightness. If the Belt is even a Little loose it will not allow the Alternator Charge the Battery. The code for the Radio will have to be gotten from the Local Dealership. Call and ask for Parts. The Parts Desk will be able to give you the code by Looking up your VIN Number.
