2004 Honda Odyssey: Rear window (vent type)is stuck open. Is there a way to close it manually, then disable it so it can't be opened again? I REALLY need to know how to get it closed before it rains tomorrow.

I have a relatively simple, permanent, safe inexpensive fix I developed for the rear window problems with the Honda Odyssey in an easy to follow .pdf document with step by step pictures. How can I post this to you. I don't want to manually email this document over and over. Thanks.

2 yr old daughter pushed in an extra dvd when one was already in. now i can't get it out and dealer wants to charge $100 to take out the dvd and send it to an audio repair center who is going to charge $400 to fix it. Any other options?

I had the EXACT same thing happen with my 2 year-old and our 2006 Odyssey last week! I drove to the dealer today to have them remove it and after banging hard on the side of the DVD player for several minutes, they said it was really stuck and I would have to pay $400 to have the DVD player removed and sent to a repair center. What!?!?!
I came home and decided to try the tweezer idea. I am not handy and I'm eight months pregnant so I couldn't get as close as I would have liked to the DVD player but as soon as I propped the little rubber doors open with the tweezers to take a peek, I saw both DVDs!! I pulled the top DVD out in about 3 seconds. I then turned my car on and the second DVD popped right out!! :) I put the DVD back in to make sure everything worked and it did. I CANNOT believe I was considering spending $400 AND be without a DVD player for weeks while they shipped it off. The DVD I pulled out has a scratch from where the tweezers were holding on to it but it's on the very outside of the DVD and if I do need to replace it, ... we're talking $10-$20 rather than $400 . Sooooo glad I didn't listen to the dealer this time!!! :)

where is the blend door actuator and how to replace it on 2004 honda odyssey
Posted by cobbokman on
The air mix control motor is accessible from the front passenger-side floor board area. From that vantage point, look toward the heater and under. The air mix control motor is a black plastic housing with a wire connector and a rod that connects to a white plastic air mix control linkage. Disconnect the wire connector, remove the rod, and remove the screws that hold the unit into the bottom of the heater. You will need a stubby Phillips head screwdriver or a Phillips bit on a small ratchet as the clearance between the unit and the floor is not enough for a standard screw driver. There is also a small piece of dash colored plastic trim that can be removed for easier access.

Need to replace the passenger side mirror,glass only. does anybody know if the plastic backing plate the mirror is attached to pops out of the holder? If it does, it would make it easier to fit the new glass on the bench. I don't want to force it unless I'm sure.
Thanks in advance,

Just replaced the mirror glass myself. Don't have all the answers but can tell you this much.
The passenger side mirror on my 2004 Odyssey was hit by a projectile which caromed off the upper door frame. Left standing was a functional mirror base (motor driven part which has four, short, horizontally mounted rods) still attached to the mirror shroud and a separate assembly of the mirror glass and plastic mount.
I purchased the mirror glass alone online from a Honda dealer, removed the old mirror glass from the mount, and mounted the new mirror to the mount. To do this, look at the tabs which hold the mirror to the mount, and slide the mirror across the mount in the obvious direction. It will take some force. I had the benefit of having the mount/mirror glass blown out of the mirror shroud so it wasn't too difficult. If the broken mirror is still mounted to the mount and inside the shroud, push the bottom of the mirror inward so the top edge of the mirror can clear the top of the shroud. Then pull up on the mirror glass to slide it off the mount. This will take some force but fortunately, the mirror glass is already broken so you don't have to be gentle. Wear gloves or protect you hands while doing this.
Reverse the process for install the new mirror glass.
Now for my key tip. I had to remount the plastic mount/mirror glass assembly onto the motorized mirror base. I could see that it snapped in, with proper alignment, by pushing straight in. I applied quite a bit of force and simply could not get it to snap in place. My solution, was to put the assembly in a 200F oven for 15 minutes to heat the plastic to make it more flexible. Using paper towels to handle to avoid burns, I aligned the closures with the four, small, horizontally mounted rods, and with a moderate amount of force, the assembly snapped into place.
Hope this makes sense. I believe most people will only have broken mirror glass and not have the plastic mount with mirror glass come off the motorized base as I did.

I have a Honda Odyssey 2006. The car seems to have enough juice, but when I turn the key, all the lights on the dash flash, the headlights won't go on, and the rest of the electrical system goes all haywire. Doesn't even seem like it tries to turn over. Electrical problem? Starter? or could it be a failed key-microchip? I was able to start it with a jump...

Try a jumpstart. Can you honk the horn or use any electronics in ACC mode?

2004 Honda Odeyssey alarm sets off without reason daytime ,4AM 12N, for no reason I reset by unlocking doors then sometimes it won't trigger for 6-8 days
Cannot lock car for fear of false alarms
I Would like to disable the alarm system an extra I really don't need or miss
Honda Alarm System can I remove Fuse or relay??
If so can you help me ID it's location

try to reset the alarm as follows:---
Ok, try this.
Put the key in the ignition, and turn forward
all the way just before cranking. Then within
5 seconds, locate, press and hold in the
valet/overide button, found under the
dash area, (push button, spring loaded)
until the installed LED (the blinking light)
in your dash area goes on solid,
and the siren chirps once.
(Your valet switch might be the toggle
(on/off) type. in this case, key on,
flip switch in opposite direction,
then turn the key off.)
This should reset the alarm, and reset
the grounded relay on the starter wire,
allowing you to start the engine.
At this point, the only thing working would
be the keyless entry from the alarm,
if it came equipped that way.
Just Repeat these steps to place it
back to usable armed mode.
You may get 2 chirps, confirming it,
and the lights may flash twice as well.
That should do it. 2 different things. The valet key is a way to start and run
the car long enough to get a new key set up.
The "valet" switch is an over ride button or switch
that will put an after market car alarm in to
Look around under the dash, to the left
leg area perhaps for this switch. This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Check engine light came on the reading says Po131 o2 circuit low voltage (sensor 1 bank 1). What does this reading mean?
Posted by kjartistic... on
- Front Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 1 harness is open or shorted
- Front Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 1 circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty Front Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 1
- Inappropriate fuel pressure
- Faulty fuel injectors
- Intake air leaks may be faulty
- Exhaust gas leaks
Replacing the O2 Sensor 1 usually takes care of the problem
The front heated oxygen sensor (or O2 sensor 1) is placed into the exhaust manifold. It detects the amount of oxygen in the exhaust gas compared to the outside air. The heated oxygen sensor 1 has a closed-end tube made of ceramic zirconia. The zirconia generates voltage from approximately 1V in richer conditions to 0V in leaner conditions. The heated oxygen sensor 1 signal is sent to the Engine Control Module (ECM). The ECM adjusts the injection pulse duration to achieve the ideal air-fuel ratio. The ideal air-fuel ratio occurs near the radical change from 1V to 0V.

The driver's door lock on my 2004 Honda Odyssey does not respond to the key fob or door lock switch anymore. All other lock actuators and switches work properly. I thought it was the actuator in just that door, but a replacement didn't change anything. What else could it be? Is there a control module somewhere that could selectively go bad for just the one door?
Posted by presdude67 on
Has Honda had a look at it? Beside the engine control module
I believe there is a body control module with relays, etc for
functions like door locks, windows, wipers, so it can get
complicated. Best bet is let Honda deal with it.
