    Dead battery = Dead DVD player

    Hello all,

    Our '06 oddy recently had to have it's battery recharged because one of our children left an interior light on. When the van was turned on and started the radio "asked" for the security code. The code was put in and everything seemed to work fine, except for the dvd player. My wife says the dvd player was working normally prior to the dead battery. Now, I am currently deployed to Iraq, so my wife is at home trying to deal with all the stuff that I normally do. I did some searching on the forum and found a post that references another post, which suggests removing the positive battery cable, but I can not find that origional post. Here is the url.

    http://www.odyclub.com/forums/showt...tery+dvd+player

    Does anyone out there have detailed instructions on how to troubleshoot this, seemingly common, problem? Looks like removing the cable worked for the guy in the above thread, but has anyone else tried this fix?

    Also is anyone else having problems with the sliding doors 'creaking" and "popping" or making any other body noise that they shouldn't? Our van is out of warranty and has been in 5 times to have the doors adjusted. The service guys have been great by not charging us for labor and whatnot, but there has to be a long term fix, right?

    Thanks in advance for any help you all may be.

    Don

    Here's the original thread that I used: RES DVD stuck on loading

    Dealer removed cables for about 1 hour. Replaced. Worked.

    Instead of removing the cable, I do believe that one can remove the radio fuse for a bit of time. Given the OP's circumstances, I will search tonight for that thread (currently at work) and post back the link if I locate it.

    I looked for a while for the fuse post but couldn't locate it. I know its here somewhere. Since you are deployed in Iraq, here is what I have come up with (but I don't know if your wife can do it). BEFORE she does either option, ask her to be sure that she has the security codes for the Audio (and NAV if your van has NAV) or else once the system gets power back, the radio won't work without the code(s). If she cannot find the code(s) and you guys bought your van brand new, the selling dealer will have the codes in their system and I believe they can give the codes over the phone.

    Option 1 is to disconnect the battery positive terminal for over an hour (preferably overnight).
    Option 2 is to pull the fuses.

    For Option 2, here is the page in the 2006 owner's manual depicting the fuses. https://techinfo.honda.com/rjanisis/...606O00384A.pdf

    You want to tell your wife to pull and check two fuses.

    Fuse #11 in the secondary underhood fuse box (Rear Entertainment System Fuse). Its the second page in the above PDF that I have directly linked.
    Fuse #5 in the driver's side interior fuse box (radio fuse). Its the second page in the above PDF that I have directly linked.

    The locations of the fuse boxes are on the second page of the PDF below:
    https://techinfo.honda.com/rjanisis/...606O00380A.pdf

    Hope your wife can check these fuses. Please post back results/solution if this works.

    ** Edit **
    As to removing the battery cable trick, it does indeed reset the system and it has worked for more than one people for the CD Changer and NAV and even the DVD Player (says Loading on the radio screen I believe). It WILL work provided none of your fuses are blown. If option 1 does not work, then she will have to pull the RES fuse and perhaps the radio fuse and check them anyway.

    Thumbs up

    I wanted to thank you all very much for your help. My wife applied the procedure provided above and it worked flawlessly!

    I searched for a forum like this as a last ditch effort before allowing the dealer control my bank account. Thanks to you, that is no longer necessary!

    Thank you once again for your help and information!

    When you get a chance, please post what option your wife used. Did she go the Option 1 Disconnect the battery route or did she go the Option #2 removing the fuses route?

    Also, good luck while there in Iraq and actually, thank you for serving.

    I too had the same thing happen to my 2007 ody. Wife or kids left the house light on overnight last night and ran the battery dead. I Jumped started the car then recharged the battery. The DVD player ejected the dvd disc then was stuck in "loading DVD" mode. I followed the advice provided on this thread and disconnected the positive battery cable for about an hour. Bingo! The DVD was reset and it is now working fine again

    Thanks ODYclub for the helpful info.

    What is the science which calls for removal of the positive cable? In most cases, the negative cable is the best one to remove.

    If you pull the +ve, you are absolutely sure of removing the power 100%. If you pull the -ve, perhaps due to other grounds through out the Ody, there might ba chance the capacitors and what not continue to get power. Perhaps that is the science.

    Disclaimer: This is PURE speculation on my part. I just recommend this as that is what has been known to work in several threads of the past and I have seen it work for the Accord in-dash CD Changers to spit out disks that are otherwise stuck and hence the recommendation to pull the +ve and not the -ve for me.

    Warning!!!! Some may not realize the dangers or disconnecting the positive battery cable.
    When pulling the positive (without removing the neg first) be very extra careful that the wrench you are using does not contact ANY metal on the car, including the battery hold down bolts and the neg terminal clamp. If it does, it can cause a serious flash, burn or even an explosion of the battery.
