The Eco setting on the Honda's are pieces of ****. My Odyssey shakes and rumbles when the cylinders cut out and continues to shake while this setting is on. There has to be some way to turn this annoying, ride destroying, setting off. It's a computer that does this and computers can be turned off. The problem is no one wants to tells us how.

The shaking when the eco function light is on is probably caused by a weak or bad coil pack on one of the 3 cylinders that is firing when the light is on. im also a master technician who owns a honda pilot and think this is one of the worst ideas honda ever came up with. it does cause excess wear on the cylinders that are always firing. i am looking into turning off this feature in my pilot, and yes there is a way to do so. it may not be cheap though. will update with more details.

I own a Honda Civic IE the ECO light keeps coming on and off...and when it does the car tends to shakes..I have read other solutions that it means that the car is saving gas...but I'm really concerned about the shaking of the car..doesn't it affect anything else on the car? Or those it mean that there is something else wrong with the car? should i get the car checked up? Please anyone who knows or have had the same issue as me please let me know..

Just unplug one of the sensor connector. Your engine light will come on but the ECO will not work.

Sorry, Moorthy, But this system cannot, and should not be turned off.
I drive the same car as you, and believe me when I tell you that you will get so used to it that eventually you will not notice the light anymore.
Like my colleage above said: This is a good feature in your van, and is what allows you to get such good gas milage.

I have a 2014 same issue however mine is modified with a ramp so it’s not an option to replace I did the cpu update and still have this issue I was so escalated the video and recordings went to the Honda engineers who said its a problem in the van but nothing can be done I’ve asked to have the eco mode turned off or disabled and have been told it’s not an option.... the only option pointing more money into this ****** thing

I have a 2006 Touring. All motor mounts replaced. One half shafts replsced. New rotors. New tires. Wheels are true. HATE the ECO function. The car feels like it has tire problems that comes and goes with the ECO light. Just a mess. I would HATE to take it on a long drive.

The above answers are not the problem. We have a 2012 odyssey and they're built to run like that
Everybody complains about the same thing. My parents have an eco button in their crv which shuts it off on demand. Why didn't Honda give this option in the odyssey? I'm bucking up and dealing with it until Honda comes out with one that doesn't have it. By the way, anybody else have a constant whining sound in their odyssey when sitting still? Other than the kids? Just wondering.

Sounds like the motor mounts have failed. The mounts are electrical that are supposed to cancel out the vibration when the eco mode is engaged, if the mounts have lost their liquid they will likely cause a vibration due to the unbalance of the crankshaft spinning. hope that helps

I got a 2006 touring odyssey with the frustrating eco light and vibration. Saving gas HA every time it does that I seem to be giving it more gas so it kicks out of that drive mode. There must be a way to shut off or Honda better get a recall coming soon. And the run flat tires.....again another dumb idea sooo expensive to replace.. What happened to Honda reliability
