Question about 2003 Honda Odyssey

1 Answer

When I plug in my portable DVD player, it only runs when the ignition is on. Is there a problem with my fuse? I notice I have a loaner right now and it doesn't do this. Is this a simple problem or something that is expensive to diagnose and fix??

Radio acts like there is no power

The radio, DVD and CD only function when the ignition switch is in the RUN or ACCESSORY positions .Your problem sounds like the radio and possibly the other affected devices are lacking power in the accessory position. This may be an issue with the ignition switch. These vans have a high failure rate of the ignition switch [not to be confused with the lock cylinder, where you insert the key] The power door locks should always have power. Check ALL the fuses both under the hood [next to the battery] and under the dashboard, if there is an additional fuse box there.

Clock fuse radio ele mirrors dvd player keeps blowing kia sedona

Same thing happened to me. My DVD player stopped working and the 15A fuse for Power 1 kept blowing. Turns out that there was a little metal ring that had fallen into my powerpoint connection on the dash. It was shorting out my DVD player. Removed the ring, installed a new fuse and DVD player is back up and running.

well it may run and all but it could be mis-firing and would degrade performance. I would make sure to put all the wires on in the correct order.If it runs fine, then it might all be on right after all but if any are in the wrong place, you would notice but not to much considering it is a four cylinder, sometimes you never notice a mis-firing cylinder. Point being is the wires do need to be in the right order for the car to run smooth and correct. Hope this helps.
