SOURCE: 99 honda odyssey coolant fans turn too late

You might need a new ECT - engine coolant temperature sensor. If it's not reading the correct coolant temperature it's not going to tell the fan to turn on when it should.

Is the check engine light illuminated? I'd bet the ECT needs replacement.

SOURCE: Right rear window of 2004 Honda Odyssey will close.

you can close it by pulling the door panel and removing the electric motor that raises the window, then lift the window closed and reinstall the motor, but the motor is most likely defective so if u go to all that hassle just replace the motor.

SOURCE: 2005 Honda Odyssey Tailgate Problem

Try to reset the tailgate by removing the no.7 (7.5 amp) fuse in the underdash fuse box. Open and close the tailgate manually, reinstall the fuse, and try the open tailgate button. If that doesn't work you would have take it to the dealer, where they can check for DTC's (diagnostic trouble codes). Honda Al

SOURCE: 2007 honda odyssey passenger side power sliding

If it will not open or close using the remote and all other functions of the rmote work then it is likely to be the remote receiver inside the door behind the door liner. If it will not open or close using the handles the coupler may not be fastened that goes to the motor behind the right side liner. Or the motor may be bad. If you turn the doors off using the switch at the drivers left side and they still won't open or close check to see if the door is still on the rollers and not jammed up. The power motor may have gone bad or it may need to have the cable tension adjusted.

SOURCE: tailgate failure on honda accord tourer 2004

Maybe a little late here but i have a fix for this after turning down my dealers generous offer of a 750gbp fix i did some extensive googling and found this.... With your ignition on open the tailgate using the catch inside then turn off ignition and disconnect the battery for a minute. Reconect the battery and turn on ignition and let the warning lights go through their cycle. With the ignition still on shut the tailgate and hey Presto should be as good as new.

Dashboard warning light for doors will not go off when doors closed


This indicates a miscommunication between the door sensors and the computer. Use your multimeter, crack open your door panels to find the wiring connectors to the door switches. Continuity test the switches. If they all show a closed circuit when pressed, move upstream along the wiring, looking for breaks (fuses, damaged wiring, etc).

How do i fix it the problem with the sensor on back passenger door it shows up on dash board as door is open


Many door open sensors self-adjust the first time the door is closed. If something gets between the door jamb and the button switch, the switch can get pushed in too far to actually make the connection when the door is closed.
You may be able to pull the switch back into normal position, or at least replace the switch.

TAILGATE OPEN WARNING LIGHT IS ON WHEN TAILGATE IS CLOSED


Sound like your tail gate switch has failed or maybe a fuse

I would take these actions :

1. Check fuses
2. Replace Tailgate switch
3. Take to Auto electrician as it could be a short in your wiring harness.

Hope this helps

The open door indicator light is on while doors are closed


The switches themselves might be broken. This can happen when the door gets closed on the seat belt. Check for damage on the switches, or paint on the doors. Finally if all else fails, get a volt meter to check for power at each switch.

Auto tailgate warning light is on dash board but tailgate closed.


I have a similar problem, my tailgate stopped working with the outside handle and the remote but can be opened manually from the inside. I don't have an alarm so there is no problem with that but did you get a solution for the tailgate problem that I could try?

Open door light stays on on dashboard - ford puma


The contacts of the sensor to the Door can be dirty. Thus it can't sense the door properly and remarking open. Also there is a solenoid behind the Door which can be defective which can cause the problem. Kindly call a technician and check the parts.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.
