    Thank you. I was doing it alone. I blocked the brake done so the lights were on. I cut one wire at a time hioping the light would go off. I connected it after nothing happened. I gave up with only 5 wires to go. I will continue tonight. Thank you. Larry

Not towing with but towing behind rv and the 2010 odyssey has had to be boosted off twice, has a brand new battery on it what could the problem be


If you have to have the key on to unlock the steering wheel, try installing a battery cut off switch under the hood. You cannot completely remove battery power completely or you will loose the radio station memory and the brake lights. You can install a battery isolator on the RV so you can charge the battery on the odessy while you're towing it using a wire on the hitch connector.

How to fix b0019-0d


There are two junction connections on the four wire harness that runs from the SDM (airbag controller under driver seat) to the passenger side airbag (I/P module). Once connection is just below the passenger side airbag in the dash and another is behind the driver side kick panel.

In my case, the connector behind the driver side kick panel had likely a bit of corrosion and there was high resistance that thre the service airbag message and light on the dash. Once I cleaned this connection, the light was gone and the problem is now fixed.

High resistance in either of these connections will throw the B0019 OD code.

Brake lights turn signal not working on drivers side


check the wire loom from the boot to under the back seats, I have herd over time the back seat can cut the wiring loom as the metal in the back seat can cut the wires. saw this on a classic cars site a few years ago. you will need to fix the wires back and reseal the wires with sealing tape. also make sure the wiring is back out of the way for the seat.

Abs light, anti-lock break light, and stuck in low


One of the most common issues with this concern on this year and model vehicle here is water corrosion in the wiring connectors under the vehicle on the drivers side.
If you look under the drivers side of the vehicle just below the rear of the drivers seat area you should see wiring connectors that plug into the floor under the vehicle.
If when you disconnect these there is corrosion build up or water then the connectors and or terminals need replaced to correct this concern.This will involve pulling the carpet up in the rear seat area behind the drivers seat to access the opposite end of these connectors.you can clean the connectors with pure white vinegar .let the wire plug sit in it for a wile. then wash off and clean with an old tooth brush. then using some sealant smear it round the rubber seal with your finger. put the wires back in and on the ends were the wires are on the plug put some sealant on them to. this should help it not take on water again for a long wile. this can be a good fix if the connections are still good. if not replace then do this when it is back on the vehicle.

What is the function of the 8 wires for the factory rv plug?


The 8 wire plug on newer models is for trailer hauling. The wires give power to the following; break lights, marker lights, backup lights (as equipped) parking lights, electric breaks (larger trailers will have these) one wire is a ground, and, through a positive wire, will trickle charge your trailers house batteries also. There is an industry standard to wiring one of these plugs, so you should be able to purchase any "newer" style trailer (tent, tow behind or 5th wheel, or camper) and the wiring harness will be wired accordingly. Any RV shop or auto shop should be able to provide a schematic for the wiring if you require one.

With 4 prong and 3 extra, that will give you what you need for 7 prong for towing RV. If your not too experienced in that area, a mechanic at any trailer place, or hitch installation place or who knows RV wiring, should be able to do it for you in about 1/2 hr. or less. Testing the wires from your truck for what they do as in right , left, stop, running/taillights, etc is about the hardest part, and the 7 prong usually comes with what terminal does what.48e2ffb.jpg

I tow my 2005 Jeep Wrangler behind my motor home. I installed a Jeep trailer towing wiring kit to the rear lights. the bought a long trailer wiring kit and ran it from the front of the Jeep to the Jeep tralier wire plug. Pluged it in and pluged the other end into the motor home trailer light recptacle. I used only four wires plus ground. There is probably a way you could tap into the wiring harnes under the hood but not having a wiring diagram this is the best I could come up with and all lights do work. You can buy a test plug with led lights that plugs in both male and female, real handy for checking connections.
