  1. What to use to tie down luggage and stuff?

    2011 - 2017 Odyssey
    I'd trust the seat base latch loops, but the cargo net nubs in the back are completely worthless. They are little M6 (I think) threads with impossible to connect to plastic heads. It does seem like they should have put in a few small d-rings in the back... But maybe that would get in the way...
  2. What to use to tie down luggage and stuff?

    2011 - 2017 Odyssey
    The issue here is that in a true emergency, any 'normal' tie-down method will be totally ineffective at containing luggage, etc. Something like 10g crash (not minor, but not catastrophic) would put 10x the mass of your cargo on your tie downs. -Charlie
  3. 2003 Odyssey overheat and valve train noise

    Problems and Concerns
    If you saw sparkles in the oil, you lost some metal out of your engine... it is likely toast, or nearly so. You may be lucky and it might be replaceable parts (crank/rod bearings) or is could be catastrophic (spun bearings, cam journals, etc.). Oil filters are not perfect, and bypass dirty...
  4. 2014, blown head gasket, help please

    2011 - 2017 Odyssey
    I'm a bit surprised by that quote. Around here, it looks like used motors are $1000-2000, depending on mileage (Southern California). I'd expect maybe $2k in labor to put it in? Check out car-part.com for an idea of prices in your area. If you get a low enough mileage unit, you shouldn't...
  5. ATF to radiator lines rusted through

    2011 - 2017 Odyssey
    This is the hard lines that go to the OEM transmission cooler in the radiator, the cooler itself is fine (inside the bottom radiator tank). There is a hard line that runs across the bottom of the fan shroud that seems to rust in areas where road salt is used. -Charlie
  6. Which One?

    2011 - 2017 Odyssey
    No significant differences between '14-'17 model years. Touring adds over EX-L Nav: Front and rear parking sensors Driver's power memory seat/mirrors Rear entertainment system w/ rear 120V power outlet Fog lights and mirror turn signals And probably a couple other things I missed... -Charlie
  7. Dome Light Cold Case Mystery

    2011 - 2017 Odyssey
    There are also two screws behind the sunglasses holder / rear passenger mirror. Open it to see those screws. -Charlie
  8. 2015 EX....Power Tailgate???

    2011 - 2017 Odyssey
    Speaking of maintenance... get your trans fluid changed regularly. The rest can be done with the normal maintenance minder codes. As for the power tailgate - if there isn't a third arm that attaches to the tailgate, you have a manual tailgate. Should be easy to check... Also, the button on...
  9. Tail light burnt bulb requires entire assembly replacement ???

    2011 - 2017 Odyssey
    OLED = Organic LED, not optical LED. Different (sort of) technology to a regular LED. That isn't what is in the tail light. They are standard LEDs lighting the ends of special diffusion tubes that transmit and emit the light in the pattern you see. The rest is correct there - they aren't...
  10. Attaching Kindle to RES

    2011 - 2017 Odyssey
    Most of the streaming or direct connection options are for an HDMI connection, based on a quick google search. That means you will likely need an HDMI to Composite adapter to connect to the AV ports on the driver's side, along with whatever streaming option out of the Kindle you choose (direct...
  11. Dashboard/Navigation go dark when set in the "auto" mode.

    2011 - 2017 Odyssey
    Do you mean setting your headlights in auto mode? Do the headlights turn on at the same time? -Charlie
  12. 2011 !! H E L P !! Brake lights not working after installing LED headlights/high beams/turn signals

    2011 - 2017 Odyssey
    The inner tail lights are not brake lights, only parking lights. -Charlie
  13. LED DRL + High Beams

    2011 - 2017 Odyssey
    Step 1 is to remove the aftermarket parts that might be having an effect and see if the problem persists. If everything is fine the, install one part at a time and tell us when it when wrong - then we can try to help troubleshoot. -Charlie
  14. First road trip (with mountains) after disabling VCM.

    2011 - 2017 Odyssey
    It isn't obvious to most people that there is a fairly large difference in MPG between mid 60's and mid 70's... Many people think they should get the highway rating of their vehicle at 75mph without cruise control on (which will rarely/never happen). As for the slow acceleration - don't go...
  15. Transmission Software Update Performed w/3x drain and fill

    2011 - 2017 Odyssey
    Exactly, only it runs as either a 3-cylinder (one bank) or a V4 (two cylinders on each bank) depending on need. The deactivated cylinders can have excessive wear, blow-by, oil build-up, etc. and the motor mounts wear much faster as they are stressed more (they are 'active' mounts and ~$500 each...
  16. Acc at rear fuss box

    2011 - 2017 Odyssey
    The process is the same with the vacuum, just remove the hose (unscrews) and the canister then the plastic panel pulls off around the vacuum. -Charlie
  17. Rear-end Collision Damage and Questions

    2011 - 2017 Odyssey
    The hatch latch isn't considered the frame. Those areas should be able to be repaired/replaced by a competent body shop. The part you have to worry about is the area on each side where the bumper beam bolts (along with some structural 'hoops' that go around the vehicle at each pillar, but...
  18. Pilot caliper and rotor upgrade on a 2016 4th gen Ody

    2011 - 2017 Odyssey
    I'm of the opinion that the rotors aren't a whole lot different - the big difference is the pads. Poor quality pads cause many problems, from poor brake feel to fade to 'warping' (uneven pad deposits on rotor) to outright failure. Just change over the pads to the Akebono's that everybody...
  19. Tail light burnt bulb requires entire assembly replacement ???

    2011 - 2017 Odyssey
    It is lit by LEDs (parking lights on those center assembly and the outer tail lights. They should have a 50k+ hour life span. In this case, there is probably a small mechanical failure in the assembly (broken solder joint, etc.) that has cause the problem. Light bulbs, on the other hand will...
  20. Cold Starts - Weird Noise from the centre console

    2011 - 2017 Odyssey
    Check if it is coming from under the dash, right above where your foot rests on the gas pedal. There is an an actuator there that can go bad (air mix control for driver's side). Mine currently needs to be changed - I have to 'help' it along sometimes. -Charlie
