Joe is correct. Disconnect the battery and go to the fuse box under the hood, next to the battery. Remove and clean those two terminals which come out of the fuse box and connect at the top of it. If this doesn't solve your problem, the ignition switch could be an issue for you.

Sounds like the battery cable terminals need to be removed and cleaned. Most often the ground side is corroded. Use sandpaper to make everything shiny then reconnect. Do both while you have everything available.

My 2006 honda odyssey touring's Doors won't unlock with remote key. Central lock switch wont operate unless ignition is on. Everything works normally if the van's ignition is on or van is running

Do the other functions work on the remote, like will it lock the doors? The batteries in a 2006 remote should just be wearing down so maybe they need replacement. Do you have the second remote and if you do, is it working?

check for a screw on a brace under the dash with a lot of brown/ black or other same colored wires going to it, this is the common ground point for a lot of cars, take it a little loose then tighten it back up, that should fix it.

My 2000 Ford Windstar is having some electrical issues. I was driving it home and the AC stopped working the radio went dead the odometer went dead my turn signals did not work and I could not roll down...

Check your alternator. My van did something similar. I was driving down the road and all of the sudden my windows, a/c, radio, door locks, speedometer, everything electrical went down. We stopped and tried to crank it and it wouldn't. Then finally it cranked up went another mile before the fuel pump quit working too. It was the alternator. I had to have someone come jump me off and follow me to the parts store and then home for it to be fixed.
