You can take the nut off the end of the compressor and remove the clutch and easily fix this, check first all by removing the serpentine belt, typically is a square hole in the idler bearing (which I suspect is the culprit or the Alternator and not the Compressor but slightly maybe.) so get a ratchet without a socket should fit into the square hole in the idler bearing, this is spring loaded and you push backwards until the belt loosens enough to remove from a top pulley and oh, you gonna get dirty and I had to make my own tool to do this with a steel ruler, a broken ratchet tip welded to the end of the ruler but tools are available if the space is tight as can be in the front part of the engine (passenger side typically). Note the exact position of the belt, take pics of it maybe.,
After belt removed spin pulleys especially the idler and alternator to hear noises and vibration - idler bearings usually can be removed from attached bracket once removed ffrom car typically and the bearing can be found for 25.00 or a used one but who trusts used when costs aren't that bad and a damaged idler or alternator can cost you lots in broken down time, towing and danger if cold and stranded. The bearings in Alternator can be changed and availabe for 5 to 10 each, photos of dissassembly and scratch marks on side of alt joints keeps things simple.
If changing bearings check brushes and chev use to sell nice brushes or rescue from used junk.
One puts a needle or the end of a wire into holes at the end of the brushes to keep the brushes back while you assemble. make sure the wires to brushes dont ground out along the way and nice square ends,dont lose the springs behind the brushes.
clean the armature (or is it stator) where the brushes contact with a file as it spins in a drill or quickly around with some 220 sandpaper and scrape out between the brass sections where the brushes contact the armature.
check that the shaft that goes into the bearing isn't too loose and put touch of locktite on shaft to keep bearing from slipping on shaft once assembled and spinning at high speeds this prevents shaft from getting torn up in a bearing failure.
clean, paint outside and reassemble. dont' put pressure on inside part of bearing only the external edge but shouldn't be issue with this.
Some alternators have to be desoldered to take apart but not typical. Is good to replace the Diode or regulator and clean area so it grounds properly and use dialectric to ground and on connections this prevents arcing and overheating and future problems.
Consider HHO as an alternative to fossil fuels.
Consider Energy Free or Over Unity Generators and Super-Capacitors as an alternative to Batteries and for Electric Cars
instead of lead acid batteries.

2000 Honda Odyssey Engine Light and TCS lights come on at engine start up when its cold out.

TCS is a separate issue from PCM code. I would disconnect the plug from PCM and clean with contact cleaner. Most of the times humidity creates corrosion on the pins.

Toyota hiace 2000 2l engine ,engine pushes out white smoke after warmed up how do i stop

White smoke is usually caused by burnt engine oil especially when accelerating from the stop lights. This is caused by either worn piston rings or worn valve guides. Worn pistons requires a major engine overhaul/rebuild or an exchange engine.

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.

2000 Honda odyssey little or no heat.

Sounds like a possible air lock. Trying running the vehicle without the rad cap until the rad fans turn on allowing the cooling system to burp out any air. Good luck.

Honda 2000 odyssey the shifter is in park, but

The gear range switch on the back of the transmission is either bad or out of adjustment. To adjust, try removing the switch and put it in the neutral position (it should click into this spot). Then put the transmission in neutral and reinstall the switch being careful not to let the switch turn at all during re-install. There is a few degrees of adjustment available by turning the switch in either direction as well if it is still off. The car should only start in park or neutral and the reverse lights should only come on when in reverse.
