  1. Air Bag light sometimes turns on when removing seatbealt. Why?

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    That's correct. The belt buckle causing the SRS light to come on is a well known issue in the Honda world, having led to more than one recall and plenty of replacements under their lifetime seat belt warranty.
  2. Air Bag light sometimes turns on when removing seatbealt. Why?

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    Here's an idea: to start, has he verified that his vehicle is not under any recall for this type of issue? Because as I remember, Honda did some recalls along this line over the years.
  3. Air Bag light sometimes turns on when removing seatbealt. Why?

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    I did make a blanket statement about the general tone of the forum, in this case as a way to discourage someone from mucking with airbag related issues that the dealer absolutely will handle for free--regardless of anyone's opinion of any dealership technical staff. Do you dispute that this...
  4. ac / heat on slightly when turned off - WHY?

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    What happens as you change the temperature control? Turn it all the way to cold, before turning the system off. Do you feel ambient air coming through as you drive. Now turn the temp all the way to hot before turning everything off; do you now feel hot air? If so, that's just the normal...
  5. Air Bag light sometimes turns on when removing seatbealt. Why?

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    I was here in the beginning of this forum, way back when. LONG before Auto Guide took it over. So yeah, "has turned into". Sure, professionals are here. Are you one? I ask because the professionals would not have hesitated to give the same advice as I gave, because they know what I know...
  6. Air Bag light sometimes turns on when removing seatbealt. Why?

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    This. I know this forum has turned into nothing more than shade tree mechanics sharing various fixes, but this absolutely is something to take to the dealer.
  7. VCM - A better way to disable.

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    The benefit is to American Honda Motor Manufacturing and its business strategy of making an EPA number. Period. American Honda knows VCM is crappy and destructive. Frankly, they don't care. They benefit from having this system to show the EPA and the buyer, and they expect it to last through...
  8. 2017 Honda Navigation System Update for 2007 Odyssey (White DVD Update)

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    Ah, so there's another benefit to the nav system: it keeps your clock set for you, automatically, from the nav satellites. (I say this tongue in cheek, but it is true--and some people would actually put that forth as a reason why you should have built in nav...) Anyway, back to the Volvo...
  9. 2017 Honda Navigation System Update for 2007 Odyssey (White DVD Update)

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    I just went and drove the Volvo wagon, the big one--V90. It's connected to the cloud 24/7. It has an app that serves as your remote start tool, plus it's where you program items for your navigation and have the app send your favorites over to the car. The maps on the car are always current...
  10. 2017 Honda Navigation System Update for 2007 Odyssey (White DVD Update)

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    Um...what do you mean by "blew $150 on nothing"??? I bought the October 2017 white disc, for my new-to-me '07 Ody. Yes, the instructions say to start the car, put it in, and wait. I did that, but in reality it just needs the ignition set to on. The update process does take several minutes...
  11. How to upgrade EX-RES radio to OEM Honda Navigation? Or aftermarket navigation?

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    The Parrot system plugs into where the satellite radio module plugs in. It's an either/or situation.
  12. Flaky Homelink Buttons

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    This is what happens to these buttons. TV remote controls have had the problem forever. They simply get used up. On remote controls, I've had luck painting a conductive material back onto the back of the button. If you can get the module out, you can do that. Search ebay for "remote control...
  13. Van sitting for a month: ECU limping etc....?

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    Not damage, but yes, weak battery. A couple of years ago when I bought my used ILX, I had the guys up the street tint the windows. When I got the car back, every light was on on the dash. WTF, dudes? Turns out they listened to XM radio all day, and ran the battery down. And this is what...
  14. How to upgrade EX-RES radio to OEM Honda Navigation? Or aftermarket navigation?

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    OEM nav, especially from 10 years ago, SUCKS. I have a great Garmin unit on the dash of my ILX. Works great. I've been a Garmin guy for years. And this one? OMG, it's so incredibly fast and it's also easy to talk to and get the navigation going. It's purely natural: "Voice command."...
  15. Cause of chime when opening door?

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    So you're saying...it responds well to be being beaten like a rented mule?
  16. 2007 Honda Odyssey Reliability

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    And you will find some people in MY1998 through MY2004 with V6/auto trans combinations where the transmission is running like the day it was new. That doesn't mean those transmissions aren't junk. They were, and are. It's just that some people got lucky and should buy lottery tickets.
  17. 2007 Honda Odyssey Reliability

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    I have to say, I went from a 2002 EX-L RES to this 2007 EX-L RES/Navi--and I'm not impressed. 5 years newer, and I think it might even be a less well built vehicle. We're having some weird driver's door lock issue that doesn't match up with anything I've researched here, for example, and the...
  18. 2007 Honda Odyssey Reliability

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    That's another question. I just bought a used 07 EX-L; 33K miles on it. Yes, thirty-three thousand miles. It replaced our 02 with 115K miles on it. We cleaned it up, had some fluids changed, and threw on a VCM Tuner. And we've noticed that gas mileage is in the 13-15 range, which sucks...
  19. 2007 Honda Odyssey Reliability

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    By mid-2005, the transmission issues were sorted out. At least, that's what ALL the reports I've read have to say. I had an 02 that crapped the bed with a bad trans and low miles. You have an EX, therefore it does NOT have eco mode--correct? I may be wrong, but I thought only EX-L and...
  20. Burning smell thru inside of car through the vents?

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    Why? That's not outrageous at all. Did you want them to work for free?
