Question about 2003 Honda Odyssey

03 odysssey won't start

It seems like the battery may be dead but we can't get the thing out of park so we can push it out of the garage to check it. How can we shift it out of park so it can be moved?

    The van's electrical system is completely dead and the battery is good. Don't know what is going on.

On the top of the steering column there is a little platic cover. Remove the cover and insert the ignition key. You should now be able to shift the car into gear. I've done this a dozen times or so as the kids are always leaving a light on in the car.

When stalled car will not start again for some time and battery seems dead. What is this?


that is because it is dead?
that key dead thing is called NO CRANK, not no start.
no car starts unless cranked, or push started or gravity started,
so its a NO Crank issue,
and the stalls, well if the battery drops below 10v the EFI system
stop working just like your lap top does, or CEL phone
and for same reasons.

most folks do a jumper cable crank next. like the AAA tow truck man does first, and for good reasons.
this proves what is wrong,
1: battery was dead (car cranks now)
2: starter dead. or key line dead, if not. cranking now.

my guess is its #1

if battery was dead, then it is
  • bad battery.
  • only discharged, so why not charge it?
  • or phantom drains, (over night parking battery dies)
  • or alternator is dead, (chargelight glowing? test alt.

Key won't turn, won't shift from Park


My 2003 Saturn l200 2.2 ecotec did this when the battery was dead. Put some juice on the battery, then the car came out of park, and I was able to remove the key. To the car, there's a vast difference between a sluggish battery and a dead battery. It may have enough amps to crank it, but it wont start w/out full output from the battery.

2000 Buick regal- My key is stuck in the ignition and will not come out and it has no power, I am unable to even move it oiut of the garage. Help!


I suspect your battery is dead. The key won't come out unless the car is in park also.. and might even require power from the battery to get the key out.. I would start with a jump to the battery and see if your key issue is solved.

The battery is dead and the car is in the garage and when I turn the key to switch it out of parking gear it wont go I need to push it out of the garage


YOU NEED BATTERY POWER TO ENERGIZE THE BRAKE TRANSMISSION SHIFT INTERLOCK SOLENOID TO SHIFT TRANSMISSION TO ANY GEAR.TRY USING A JUMPER BOOSTER BATTERY TO POWER CAR UP ENOUGH TO SHIFT IT OUT OF PARK TO MOVE IT.

My battery on my 2003 Pontiac Vibe is dead and I cannot shift out of Park and into Neutral to get my car out fo the garage to jump it... Suggestions?


Have you considered a portable battery booster? With the booster, you should be able to start the engine or at least energize your car's electrical system which will allow you to shift the transmission out of Park.

Randomly won't start, happened after jumping dead battery


Probably the battery. Take it the chain auto parts place and they will test it for you.

Guages when crazy. Now won't even try to start.


You likely have it repaired by now but it sounds like a classic case of oxidized battery or cable connection (sometimes mis-diagnosed as bad battery but cured with new (clean) battery)
