Question about 2002 Honda Odyssey

Sliding door driver side won't open

When I unlock the doors with the electronic button, this door won't unlock. When I manually unlock it, it locks again. When I try to actually open it with the button, it just beeps three times and doesn't try to open. But it does slide ok manually once I do get it unlocked. Some advice about fuse 13 didn't work (although it did reset the clock). This is all I tried. Any help?

    Amazing!! Daniel Beaty is brilliant!! It turns out my fuel tank wasn't closed all the way, and now the door closed!! How much money has he saved me, and any others who have the same problem! We are truly indebted, Mr. Beaty!

    I have an 2009 Odyssey and my gas door sensor also broke, leaving the gas door stuck shut and the sliding door not functioning. It is the plastic plunger portion of the sensor that broke on my car, it was broken by a gas attendant at Costco, Does anyone know the part number for the sensor, I want to replace it ASAP.

I had the same problem and it ended up being the sensor for the gas door. Another symptom in my case was the gas door not openning. The sensor doubles as a spring to pop the gas door open. I didn't want to mess up my storage compartment like danielbeaty, but it was harder. I took the kickplate off and the trim from around the rear panel, and a couple of screws, and was able to reach in and unplug the sensor. I'm in the process of posting the procedure in more detail.

    The instructions on chuckfurlong's site fixed my issue. I used the info to remove the panel - disconnected the sensor, and door works now. I just needed a bit more room to get to the sensor then prying the panel would allow. Here is a link to images of the my sensor connected and disconnected. - Thx Chuckfurlong! - Drew http://webdrew.com/?page_id=94

    I had the same problem, but was able to play with the gas door sensor from the outside, and that made it work. Amazing. I had originally tried the thing with the fuses and that did not work.

Ok on most 2002 to 2004 honda odyssey's have some major problems most are from the transmission going out every few thousand miles. Anyway if it's the driver side sliding door if you notice when the gas cap is open it wont allow you to open,or the door will just lock it can mostly be the actuator with is a little switch of some sort in the gas cap when pressed down the door knows it can open when not all the way the door knows either someone is filling up the tank. So a easy way to fix this is check your fuel door get a flash light look at close as you can to see if it's making contact with the actuator if not maybe the door is a little bent. It's a simple fix if you know what your doing or at least have the common sence not to screw up anything now if you cant notice a bend in the fuel door then! you need to find the wire to that switch mostly its either under the left foot panel on the sliding door floor at the edge where you step to enter the van pull that piece up. You will notice wires all surrounded in a black tubing for the 2002 odyssey i am pretty sure the wire is red/or yellow it can be diffrent so i don't know for sure. If you know someone who is great on honda's they would know for sure then you just cut that wire because the door wont know if its either closed or open the fuel cap so it will allow you to open and close the left sliding door. Problem solved just put tape over the wire you close (elecritical tape) only then put all the panels back and you are good to go. You just saved your self $$$ from dealers if not under the 10 yrs 100,000 mile warranty the last place you want to go is to the dealer to fix something if not under warranty they will screw you over so bad its not even funny for something like this its about 500$ to fix. I hope this helps

    I tried the fuse trick first - didn't work. Before taking the gas tank door apart I opened it, took the cap off and retightened it and shut the gas tank door (giving it an extra push). Then tried the door again and it fixed the problem. Thank you sooooooo much.

Hello Daniel,
For absolutely no reason, BOTH of my 2004 Honda Odyssey electronic sliding doors stopped working. I've tried to activate them from the remote and the interior buttons....all to no avail :-( Could it be a burned out fuse or a sequence of buttons accidentally hit on the remote devise ???
Your service and insight is GREATLY appreciated.
Respectfully,
erin

I fixed this last night. It was not the actuator in the door. The van has a switch in the fuel fill door that will not let you unlock that door if the fuel door is open. I simply cut the wires coming from that switch and the lock operates normally. It's GETTING to that switch that's the tough part. The little storage cubby in the 3rd row under the window on my van was already broken so I forcefully removed it with large screwdrivers (it's screwed in from the bottom) and I could then see the cable and wires. If you have the time and patience, you would remove that entire rear quarter panel to get to the wires, but that involves removing part of the headliner, both seatbelts, lots of trim, etc. (easily an all-day affair) Depends on how nice your van is! Honestly - I regret destroying my cubby but I knew the lock would drive me and my wife crazy and did not have the $$ to pay a dealer to fix it. It used JB Weld to put the pieces back together and drop it back in there so it's somewhat functional but it looks pretty crappy. Anyway - email me with questions: danielbeaty@hotmail.com

I had the same problem with my driver side slide door. The manual tells you to remove a fuse but the wrong one. First make sure you have the power off for the slide doors and that they are closed all the way. If you look under the drivers side there is a fuse panel. Take the cover of and pull the #7 fuse. Wait about 2 minutes then replace the fuse. Turn the key 1 time and turn the power back on for the slide doors. Use the remote to open both doors and they should work again. This is a reset for the van doors.

Why isn't my right sliding door not opening or closing


If sliding door is electric, that's where I would start, check the electrical circuits for voltage and ground. If that checks out, the issue may be mechanical?
Your owners manual should give you some operational info for the sliding door.

My 2005 Honda Odyssey driver's side manual sliding door won't open/unlock - I hear the lock mechanism moving when I activate the power lock/unlock, but the door cannot be opened no matter what i...


More than likely the connecting rod that goes from the door lock actuator to the locking mechanism itself came unattached. These rods are usually held in place by a small piece of plastic that the rods "pop" in and out. The only other thing i can imagine possible is that the door lock itself is actually seized up. In order to attempt to fix this, you would have to remove the door side panel to see the inner workings of the door, and this is quite difficult on most side sliding doors (i have a 2000 pontiac montana w/dual sliding doors). Hope this can help you solve your problem.

The lock on the driver side sliding door was stuck unlocked. Now it stuck locked.


you should clean the locking mecanism and then lubricate with WD40. If this is a van, my van has a sliding power door on the pass side and a manual slider on the drivers. alot of times the drivers locks and dont lock like it has a mind of its own but it always works with the drivers controls. and then the next time i dont think about it and it works. now it also has child proof locks on them, a little plastic lever you slide up and down as to put in a lock position so child cant open from inside and down to allow door to open from inside. double check this. it wont unlock with the key or power? you might have to take off inner door panel to manually unlock this and get it lubed

The lock on the power sliding door (driver's side)


You should be able to manually unlock the door and open it,even without the power lock working.The center roller on these vans is prone to wear,causing binding and misalignment of the electrical connectors that you see when the door is open.This may cause the locks to be disabled and the door to not open with the power button.There are three rollers on each door,but many times only the center one is worn out.The installation & alignment of the rollers is critical on this vehicle,so you should consider the dealer for this repair. good luck

Sounds like something isn't right.Try to disconnect the battery for a few minutes and see if that helps.Some times the ecu gets haywired and disconnecting the battery might reset it.And if it is the original battery you might want to get it tested.

Battery died now power sliding doors and rear hatch not operating


1) Unlock all doors from driver's door while it is open. The driver's door is the only door to remain open during this process! 2) Turn the key from OFF to RUN 8 times within 10 seconds, with the eighth turn ending in RUN. All the doors will lock and unlock if program is successful. 3) Turn key OFF and remove key from ignition. Within 20 seconds, press any button on the remote. (Press sliding door or rear hatch and it will open!) 4) If door locks do not respond, wait several seconds and press button again. If doors still fail to respond, try repeating steps (1-3).
