Question about Honda Odyssey

2 Answers

99 honda odyssey Dealer replaced the ignition switch in the steering column. After they did this, the SRS light has come on in the dash. Also, now, when the vehicle is placed in to park and the keys taken out, the parking light stays illuminated in the dash and the front and rear lights come on. Only way to get them off is to remove the negative battery cable. The dealer says that the problems I am now having are not the result of them replacing or messing with the steering column.

    The dealer is saying that they have done hundreds of these repairs and never had any problems. I have taken it back and paid $84 for a diagnostic check and let them work on it. I will try to forward you their diagnosis if I can get your email address. They want me to bring it back in and pay them another $84 and let them work on it some more. They are trying to say it is a module or the brains of the safety restraint system. I think I am getting hosed.

That's bull....it is because they did the work on your vehicle. If they do not fix the problem they created, a simple comment to the effect that they will be talking to your attorney will change their attitude.

What was the problem before that caused you to take it in for maintenance?

The dealer in my opinion is not being honest with you, the problem's you now have were very likely caused by the dealer during the repair, the ignition switch replacement requires the steering column be taken apart, so they were in the area of the problem parts, why would everything be fine and then after the steering column is pulled apart to replace the switch you have these problems? the lights sstaying on problem has something to do with the light switch which is on the column, the SRS/Airbag light is most likely caused by the rotating ribbon contact that is under the steering wheel, this also was most likely disturbed by this repair, so you most likely need a new lighting switch on the column and a new rotating airbag contact, which is called the "CLOCK-SPRING" Go back to that dealer and insist they at least do a free diagnosis of the problems to see if they did anything wrong, if they are a reputable dealer they will do this for free.

99 Honda Accord EX V6 check engine light comes on and blinks ten times when I start the car along with the SRS light being on for a short period of time. The other problem has been the car shutting off...


Your vehicle may be part of a 2002 honda/acura recall. Faulty ignition switch!! Typical symptoms are: Random stalls, hard start, no spark, power loss (symptoms progress in hotter weather). When the vehicle stalls/shuts off while in motion, usually the speedometer drops to "0" while in motion. Some warning light not lit when ignition is set to "on" (chk engine/ABS/Brake etc.). Call your local dealer with your VIN# on hand and check if your vehicle is part of the recall. Refer to faulty ignition switches, affected years (1998-2002 models), accords/preludes/pilot/Odyssey/Civic/CR-V and various Acura models.

How hard is it to fix a ignition switch in a 1999 odyssey


it is not hard at all, first you will ned to be careful working around the air bag system, in addition, you will need to remove the b=neg cable connection from the battery, however, if you have a factory honda car stereo, you will need to have the access code to re activate your stereo or it will not work, a built in anti theft device. remove part of the lower dash, several screws in the steering column, the plastic covering should then allow access to the ignition switch. remove the two wire harnesses connected to the ignition, normally, three screws to remove the switch, replace and re assemble as you have taken apart. the switch will cost around 50-60 dollars at your local autoparts store. two to three hours time wise, good luck!

SRS dash light has come on and stays on , honda odyssey 2000 model, hope someone can help me !! Cheers Emma


SRS stands for supplemental restraint system (airbags). Have your car hooked up to a diagnostic computer at a dealer or good repair shop. They will tell you if your problem is with the warning system or the restraint system itself. Do not ignore this warning. And good luck with it.

My 99 honda odyssey engine just dies, at high speeds, or low speeds, it used to start right back up, but seems to be more frequent & harder to start???


Seems like your main ignition switch is worn out and causing open electrical contact. Replace the steering switch. Part number 35130-SOX-A01. This is part#8 in the "combination switch" of parts catalog. This should solve your problem.
