Question about Honda Odyssey
I have code p1717, how do i know if sensor is good, and can i changed
Yes, the hondas have a vast number of tranny codes.
rule 1: no ecu (or tcm) in the world knows what part is bad. !!
it only knows, what tests failed. period.
a mech, does his tests to find the real cause, guessing will be expensive.
you can buy the FSM and read it? the tranny section is over 100 pages, (on car alone tests) off car 1000 pages.
A/T is complex, to the extreme....
its not a sensor, why guess that?
ok i go to alldata dot com for you ($15 yr/subs)
and look and see this. (truncated)
Open in Transmission Range Switch ATPRVS Switch Circuit That means the wire is bad, cut, connector bad, rusted, or the switch is bad.
a technician checks this path, and finds, the truth.
that is what we do.
Trouble Code Conditions:
With the vehicle driven in reverse at a speed of 3 (5 km/h) mph or less for at least 2 seconds, no RVS signal is detected.
need and FSM?
cant fix cars with outone, or the online account, not complex cars of today, no way, Jose'

SOURCE: 2000 Honda Odyssey - P1739
P1739 Automatic Transaxle Concernsthis is from the Honda manual, what does this mean? it means there is an electronic shift solenoid fault in the transmission and it need to have the Honda dealer hook up there dealer only test equip to pin down the exact issue with the trans controls.

I would not recommend using Dexron III. Honda Odysseys are prone to transmission problems. A drain and fill with Genuine Honda Fluid is Recommended. The drain plug can be removed with a 3/8 ratchet at the bottom of the trans. The fill hole is at the top of the trans. You remove it with a socket on a long extension. The capacity is close to 3 quarts

Your car’s audio system will disable itself if it is disconnected from electrical power for any reason. To make it work again, you must enter a specific five-digit code in the Preset buttons. Because there are hundreds of number combinations possible from five digits, making the system work without knowing the exact code is nearly impossible.
You should have received a card with your manual(if you have one) that lists your audio system’s code number and serial number. If you don't have the card, you can get the code number from your Honda dealer, but to do this, you will need the system’s serial number. (you can try the following to get the serial number, but I don’t know if it will work. To access the serial number, turn the radio on. It must display ‘‘CODE’’, then turn the radio off. Push the preset 1, preset 6, and power buttons at the same time, then quickly release.)
If your car’s battery is disconnected or goes dead, or the radio fuse is removed, the audio system will disable itself. If this happens, you will see ‘‘Code’’ in the frequency display the next time you turn on the system. Use the Preset buttons to enter the five-digit code. If it is entered correctly, the radio will start playing.
If you make a mistake entering the code, do not start over; complete the five-digit sequence, then enter the correct code. You have 10 tries to enter the correct code. If you are unsuccessful in 10 attempts, you must then leave the system on for 1 hour before trying again.
Hope this is helpful.

Have supplies ready(long stem funnel to reachfill hole, 4 qts honda genuine atf-z1, rags for drips)
1. First, park the car while its hot on a flat surface and turn the engine off. Locate the yellow transmission dipstick and remove it and wipe it clean.
2. Look for the the ATF fill plug and washer(below and to the left of the brake fluid reservoir) 17mm marked "ATF" and remove it.
3. Locate the drain plug(not the one on pointing towards the drivers front tire but its located on on the drivers side of the transmission pointing towards the passengers side and lying horizontally) and remove it along with the washer. Its blue and is a standard 3/8 square drive plug and remove it. Drain completely. (wait 15 min or so until ALL is gone and replace the plug after throughly cleaning the magnet that is attached to it).
5. Replace atf fluid(honda says 3.3 qts- but mine took 3.8 to bring to first hole in dipstick level-check while running(use honda z-1 fluid only-yes- its expensive).
6. Replace fill bolt and washer and tighten.
7. Replace dipstick, let engine get hot and recheck. Recheck again after driving a day or so.
Your done-good work, you saved a $100 dollars...
It can be changed for every 60000 miles..

The transmission range sensor aka neutral safety switch is located underneath the air filter on top of the transaxle and very easy to access. Replace this part (around $50) and it will solve your problem.
What happens is this, when your tranny warms up, it disperses heat to the sensor switch and if its faulty or worn out, will send faulty relays to the transmissiom computer module (TCM) and makes the transmission shift irratically (OD to 3rd and back while driving at freeway speeds). You tranny is not overheating like most people believe, its the switch. Mechanics are telling alot of people that their tranny needs replaced. Watch Out For These People!! They only want your money!!
