Question about Honda Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Yesterday when driving my minivan the steering wheel felt like it wasn't connecting to the wheels. When turning left I had to break in the middle of the intersection because the car did not turn.

Honda Odyssey 2004 Radio doesn't want to turn on either.

    It is impossible to give an opinion with out a list of items to repair but you could go to an accredited front end specialist shop for a second opinion and another quote and then decide for yourself
    of course you have to decide the condition of the rest of the car---rust engine , transmission age of the car, the whole package because if the rest is poor , then that quote may be more than the car is worth so a later model car may be a consideration

Wheels hardly turn


does it still do the same thing? i'd say you overheated your grease in your suspension nearest the wheels. it could have seeped out. i would re-grease all the front end. take the wheels off and look around for damage. check your ball joints and steering linkages for anything unusual. just as a precaution, check your steering fluid too.

Here is the Technical Service Bulletin that maybe of help, worth looking into but can't guarantee that it would fix your problem Steering - Steering Column Clunking When Turning TECHNICAL Bulletin No.: 01-02-32-001P Date: November 25, 2009 Subject: Clunk Felt/Noise Heard From Steering Column, Steering Gear and/or Front Of Vehicle During Turning Maneuver and/or Steering Wheel Rotation (Replace Intermediate Shaft As Directed) Models: 2001-2004 Buick Regal 2005-2008 Buick Allure (Canada Only), LaCrosse 2000-2008 Chevrolet Impala 2000-2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo 1998-2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue 2004-2007 Pontiac Grand Prix Supercede: This bulletin is being revised to add the 2008 Buick LaCrosse/Allure. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 01-02-32-001O (Section 02 - Steering). Condition Some customers may comment on a clunk type noise coming from the front of the vehicle while driving during a turning maneuver.

1. Locate a large area (parking lot) where the vehicle can be turned in a tight circle. 2. Turn the steering wheel to the right and/or left all the way to the steering lock, then off the steering lock a 1/4 turn. 3. Drive the vehicle approximately 5 km/h (3 mph) in a circle, preferably over rough pavement or seams on the road surface. 4. Drive the vehicle straight ahead at idle speed while applying and releasing the brake pedal. Listen/feel the steering wheel for the clunk/noise condition. 5. If a clunk is felt in the steering wheel, the MOST likely cause is the I-shaft - not the steering gear. Continue with the correction. Correction DO THIS - Replace the intermediate shaft DON'T DO THIS - DO NOT lube the intermediate shaft Replace the existing intermediate shaft

DOn,t drive this. Open the hood, follow the steering shat to the gear box. there you will see a Rubber like connector that connects the shaft to the gear box. This is what snapped. Your car is really not safe to drive untill this is fixed.

How do I align the steering after I replace the steering gear box so I have equal rotations on the steering wheel from left to right on a 1992 chevy astro van?


with the front of the vehicle raised in the air (with jack stands underneath), turn your steering wheel lock to lock, counting how many times the steering wheel does one complete rotation..........halve this number and rotate the steering wheel the opposite way...this will be the approximate middle of the steering rack movement

One important ppoint to note that not all items are built exactly, so you will require a wheel alignment after any change in steering or suspension components to be sure that everything is running true and correct

Air bag light


When the airbag light (SRS) is on or blinks it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called the clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the steering wheel while maintaining a mechanical connection to the airgag mounted on the steering wheel, to replace this part you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel, this requires a special steering wheel puller tool and that you disarm the airbag system before you start the work, to do this disconnect the battery negative cable for 1 hour prior.

Cracking noise heard/felt when turn to the left


Have you determined where the noise is coming from? I have heard noises like you describe when a Constant Velocity joint has gone bad in a front wheel drive car. You need to determine which side it's coming from left or right and if it is coming from a worn CV joint your best fix is to have the axle replaced and have the other one checked to be sure it's not going to fail shortly after you replace the one that is bad.

This sounds like a wheel bearing close to complete disintegration. I advise you get the front end free of the ground so you can check for it by grasping the wheel and attempting to rock it from side to side. It isn't hard to imagine that if it is indeed that worn, that the wheel could separate possibly taking the axle and CV joint with it. Don't take any chances - it's urgent that you find the problem quickly.
