I had this problem with my 2002 Odyssey. The brake lights wouldn't come on but the horn worked (rules out the fuse located under the hood, passenger side compartment). Could not get the thing out of park. I temporarily used the emergency unlock switch located on top of the steering column. (a small plastic tab can be pried out with a screwdriver and a key inserted pushes a button down releasing the shift lock. its in the manual.) The culprit was the BRAKE STOP SWITCH located above the arm of the brake pedal. VERY easy to remove and replace. And the part was at an auto part store. (fairly cheap too). The switch is a safety feature so a kid doesn't slip the van into drive accidently. Its just above the brake pedal, about the size of a C battery with a wire connected. First take the wire off by pushing the tab in on the wire connector and pulling it off the switch and tucking it away somewhere. Then get a wrench and loosen the lock nut a few turns, then unscrew the switch from the bracket. (it will be more obvious what to do when you have the new part in your hand). Then take the new switch and screw it into the hole. Push the brake down and feel on the other side of the bracket to make sure the button just clears the bracket so when you depress the button completely it is flush with the bracket face. Then get the wrench out, tighten the new lock nut and plug it back in. And hey, you fixed it. Check to see if the brake lights are working and you should be able to put it into drive by depressing the brake pedal.

On the steering column there is a slot that has a cover on it. Remove the cover and insert a key. the shifter should move. You might have to turn the car off and on. It is in the manual. A common problem.

SOURCE: 2004 Honda Odyssey D Light Does Not Work, But Maintence Required

D problem is simply a lightbulb out on the cluster board.
Simple to remove the cluster and replace the bulb.

The Service Required light can be reset by
1) Turn they key to the II position

2) Turn the key to the off position, and push and hold in the odometer reset button

3) Turn they key back to the II position, while still holding the button.

4) After about 10-15 seconds, the light should go off.

SOURCE: 2003 Honda Odyssey Brake light replacement

open the rear hatch. Between the tail light housing and the rear hatch opening there is a trim strip with two flush fitted flap doors. Insert a small straight blade screwdriver into the small slot on the tail light side of the flap. Pry gently inboard and the small flap will open (the hinge side of the flap is on the side of the rear hatch opening.) Now you can remove the screws that hold the tail lamp assembly in place. Finally, there is still a "spear point" clip that fits into a socket near the front outboard corner of the assembly. Gently pry with a tape wrapped screwdriver (avoids scratches) and force the assembly straight back. The clip should release and free the assembly so you can change the bulb(s).

Gear shift not coming out of park for a 2000 Honda Odyssey


Your vehicle is equiped with a feature that if the brake is not pressed in the gear shifter will not come out of park. If this feature has gone bad you can bypass it. I provided you with the proper way to do it below. I hope this helps and good luck.

I HAVE A 2003 HONDA ODYSSEY WHEN I START THE ENGINE AND MOVE FROM PARK TO REVERSE IT JUMPS BUT ONLY WHEN COLD


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you replace the transmission fluid. If the fluid is burnt the shifting tends to jump. This can smoothen it up once replaced.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

2003 Honda Odyssey that will not come out Park


Yes most likely, the brake switch also sends power to a solenoid to unlock the shift lever. If the trans works fine once you get it out of park, the trans itself is fine
