    2000 Honda Odyssey spins but won't start please help

    When I first start my van it starts just fine but if I drive it and turn it off it just spins and won't start. I wait a minute and try again it spins the finally starts. What could be wrong? It's my only means of transportation I need help please. Thanks

    Two things to check next time it won't start:

    1. Turn the key to the running position (not start) and listen for the fuel pump whirring in the rear. If not, could be a problem with the main fuel pump relay or the fuel pump itself.

    2. Check if the green immobilizer key light goes out before you try to start the van. If not, could be a problem with the immobilizer system.

    KSS, my problem with my 1998 Accord was exactly as you described, and my solution was exactly as dave described. My darned key's built-in immobilizer chip went wonky. On a "good" start the green key lght would extinguish, and it would start normally. On a subsequent start after shutting down briefly at something like the corner mart, it would spin with nothing else happening...then I noticed that the green key light was remaining illuminated. I'd wait, try again, that light would extinguish....good start.

    Fixed this by getting a new key at the Honda dealer and destroying the malfunctioning one. Worked like a champ afterwards.
