For the second time this month my wife has not been able to start our Ody. Cranks away, but will not go. No lights on the dash to indicate a computer error code. We're 170 miles from our 100K certified powertrain warranty being up.
The first time it happened she kept trying and it did finally start. Today, at home in the garage thankfully, it just wouldn’t go. She called me and said she had been trying for about 8 minutes with no luck. She said that the ‘key’ light (immobilizer) on the dash was flashing after each attempt, which she didn’t remember seeing before. On a whim, I had her go inside and get the valet key. She did, and it started right away with the valet key. She tried again with her regular key and it started then too. The immobilizer light did not flash after the van started. Hmmm.
Anyone have any ideas? The van was in for service about a month ago. It got some emission solenoid valve replaced (warranty) and the ignition switch recall taken care of. Could the immobilizer somehow gotten messed up during the ignition switch fix? I’m going to try to get it in ASAP just to get it on record.
