I have a 2006 Honda Odyssey Touring. 3.5L V6. When I turn my headlights on, the left turning indicator light comes on inside and the turn signals won't work. When I turn my lights off, the turn signals...

Your headlight switch is shorting to you blinker switch or vise versa. This effects the interior lights because the dimmer switch is wired with the headlight switch. Both switches will need to be rewired. For a car that's less than 10 years old that is ridiculous. You could try to lodge a complaint with Honda. Most cars don't have issues like that for at least 20 years. So unless you've been driving through the arctic or have 500,000 miles you should not be impressed.

You don't have daytime running lights but you do have automatic light control. The design engineers reasoned that you would not need fog lights unless you were running with headlights on under foggy conditions so these functions are controlled by logic and can't be separated without rewiring

Headlights, a/c, radio will not turn on

Sounds major.
All three are different circuits and the headlights don't go thru the ignition switch.
I'd start with tracing the headlight circuit.

My headlights stopped working i checked the fuses they r good. the turn signals and brake lights still work also

Switch for he headlights may need to be checked out. This is a hard task unless you have a test meter. I would start by checking the headlight sockets for power, if you have power, then move up to check the power at the fuse box. You may have to remove the headlight switch if you desire to check the power connections. Your headlight switch will have to be on when you check this. Good Luck.

Headlamps stay on 5 minutes or more when car is turned off and locked. Headlamp switch doesn't seem to turn them on or off.

you don`t say but if your car has a delay timer for the headlights then this could be the problem,it is built part of the headlight switch and to repair you replace the headlight switch itself with the same switch.some of these cars also had an daylight sensor in the dash that would detect how much daylight there is and when it gets dark enough it automaticaly turns on the headlights.this system was first installed on the cadillac cars then filtered down to other models in the gm line.its someplace to start.

I push the clutch in to start it but the staarter dont turn

is your battery charged? turn the head lights on while you try to start and have someone look at the headlights while you try to turn engine over, if the headlights dim while the key is turned to start position, that means the starter is drawing fire. if starter does not turn while doing this, i would say bad starter. if not that,,,there is a neutral safety switch on the clutch. just to make sure your car does not start while in gear, the factory installeda switch on the clutch pedal to insure children and minors can not start your car. unless the clutch in pushed in. the switch is on the clutch pedal, just above the brake pedal[pad] look for a plunger type switch above the pedal.. i hope this helps!!!!
