  1. Eulogy for my 2002 Odyssey

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Wow - great post. Definitely understand your perspective. I know it's just a machine but that's a lot of years and memories, especially family ones. Imagine the times when your van was loaded to the hilt and all family was loaded up for the vacation and you looked back in the rear view mirror...
  2. If you own 2001 Odyssey and have transmission problems, there is a radiator filter!

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    To the OP, your van most likely had a remanufactured transmission with the standard in-line filter that is part of the install. Still not a magic bullet to keep the transmission going IMO. I am not so bitter as to say I wish I did not buy the van, but it gave me 9 years of relative...
  3. 03 Honda Odyssey - Help find the problem [video]

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Stop driving it until you do the timing belt service. You have been driving it like this for a few weeks since you first reported this issue? This is an interference engine and a loose or broken timing belt will ruin your engine (bent valves). Will this be the first timing belt service?
  4. What's the best bulb replacement for reverse lights?

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Cree LED bulb all the way. :rockon:
  5. Headlights are too dim

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    I use PlastX from Meguires periodically on the lenses and a bright non blue coated headlight bulb. Proper aiming helps too. If I had the time and resources, a proper retrofit of projector beams and HID/LED bulbs would do - but ain't nobody got time for that! Don't be tempted to put a HID or...
  6. Penny size coolant drop every other morning???

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Water pump leaking would be a good guess. My advice is to always use OEM Honda parts for the timing belt service.
  7. Where is front accessory power outlet relay for 2003 Ex?

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Keep in mind you may run down your battery by mistake if no key in ignition with this setup.
  8. Sliding Door Cable Setting

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    See the attached and hope it helps.
  9. Wow another transmission

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    I feel your pain. If you have the time and money to repair properly with the advice above then go for it again. It really scared me when my transmission was going out so it wasn't so hard to limp it in and trade it.
  10. Sounds familiar? Engine starts well, after a few seconds engine stops all of a sudden

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    I had similar symptoms but I had a CEL on with codes P1361 and P1366. Turns out it was the TDC Camshaft Sensor. Fairly expensive as it involves a bit of labour to access it.
  11. Help needed please

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Yup, need the code read to help you.
  12. Change front passenger seat to face back.

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Don't - SRS in the front could injure or worse.
  13. Where is front accessory power outlet relay for 2003 Ex?

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Usually the front ACC socket gets dislodged from the console and the wire harness shorts or loosens. If ACC socket not working, check the #9 fuse in the Passenger's Under-Dash Fuse/Relay Box near the front passenger outside kick panel area (not behind the glovebox). In the same box you will...
  14. Unofficial 2001 Odyssey Thread

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    Hello? Anyone home? Just popped in to say hello. Still see some familiar posters around... Daily driver still a Civic (or ACURA EL to be specific) and still holding together nicely. Miss the Ody's space and functionality but not the transmission :D
  15. Bouncy tire, continued

    1999 - 2004 Odyssey
    How about a bad wheel bearing?
