SOURCE: Gear stick gets stuck

Check to see if the brake lights are working. If not, it is very likely that the brake switch has pitted or burned contacts. This circuit also controls the solenoid in the steering column to relase the gear shift. It is a safety feature so you (or a child) can't put the van in gear w/o having your foot on the brake. Look up under the dash and you can see the white/black switch and its plug attached just in front of the brake pedal lever. The switch simply twists out and unplugs. Note the depth of the switch by marking it with a pencil so that when you replace it, you maintain the same distance (too close and it won't be able to open; too far away and it won't be able to close properly).

It is a very cheap part and easy to replace. BTW the switch itself pops apart and can be made to work temporarily by using an emory board or sandpaper to clean the metal contacts. ALSO if this isn't your particular problem, you can use a small screwdriver to pop open the little plastic insert on the top of the steering column near the gear shift. Push down on the inner piece to manually release the solenoid and get the van in gear.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: NEED REPLACEMENT KEY FOR 2004 ODYSSEY HONDA VAN???

According to the owner's manual, the vehicle came with a "key number tag." If you have the tag, or the number off the tag, you should be able to purchase a replacement key from a dealer or locksmith.

Before you go replacing the ignition (and the previous poster didn't mention it, but what about the door locks?) I would check your owner's manual. The original owner may have written the key code in the book!

Also, look around the car. Maybe the tag is stuck in the glovebox!

Do you have any of the papers you received when you bough tthe car (even if used)? Maybe the code is written on something?

Good luck!

Make sure that your gear shifter is in park, also try turning the steering wheel back and forth while turning the key. Sometimes it gets in a bind and makes it hard to remove the key

Make sure your transmission is all the way in park. Sometimes they don't go into park completely.

I change my ignition switch in my honda oddysey 2005 and how can i program my key with ignition switch because not turn on my car


Your Odyssey has the "Immobilizer" system, that is intended to prevent someone who doesn't have your key to start your car. This system works by having a transmitter imbedded in your key and a receiver located as part of the ignition switch. The receiver picks up the signal transmitted from your key and sends it to the car's central computer. The computer is programmed to reject any signal from a key other than the one that came with your van. You have two choices: 1. Get your Odyssey to the dealer to reprogram the computer. 2. You can usually place your original key very near the key that came with the new ignition switch. This allows the receiver in the ignition switch to pick up the signal from your van's original key transmitter and send this signal to the computer. It is easy to try it.

Sounds like you are going to need a new lock cylinder. You may be able to see what the place that made you the key will do for you. Dealership is the most reliable place to have keys made.

2008 honda odessey ignition switch trouble


Hi

I have same problem - intermittently in my 2005 Honda Odyssey (Australian Version)! Same story with dealer response since of course it will not do it when I take it in (twice). Honda dealer says he cannot repair problem unless he sees it is broken! Very frustrating!!!!

I have had some success by putting the key in and out of lock several times and then moving it about when I try to start the car - normally this fixes it. I only hope this does not break permanently when I am far from home!

Keen to hear if others have this problem and have found a permanent solution.

We found our solution...a new ignition. :-( One day the key stuck in the ignition and refused to be removed! It cost us around $350.00 to have a new ignition installed. No way around it.
