I bought an 07 Honda Odyssey EX-L with a flood title off copart. I have replaced almost everything, the car was in perfect running order, for some reason the air bag module wasn't responding to any of the diagnostic tools from the mechanic. I had the module reprogrammed and installed it back into the vehicle, which caused the roof (passanger and driver side) air bags to deploy. I removed the battery terminals before plugging in the module, furthermore I had no other air bags deploy, and my air bags weren't deployed prior to this. Could this be from the faulty module? Bad sensors? Why didn't the other air bags deploy? What should I check or be looking for? Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks!

Oh, I'm sure the contacts weren't corroded from the immersion or anything, and I'm also sure everything else in the van was factory-fresh, even though at some time, your van was submerged to an unknown level... and since you bought it in spite of being aware of this alarming fact, I'm not sure why you'd be surprised your airbags would deploy when you replaced the module (any residual or static charge could have triggered the detonation). But I am sure you're looking at a solid four figures to replace everything now... or you could make a smart move and return your van to the deep by selling it as a boat anchor, and replace it with something that hasn't been underwater, ever... :cool:

I'm with Boogety on this one... I hope you bought the van for like $10 or something, because anything more is not worth it. Flood titles IMHO are the WORST! Since there are so many electronic components in the van, any or all of which was underwater, you could potentially have corrosion and shorts and bad contacts all over the place. The cost to chase down and fix everything is like trying to replace all the electronics in the van, which is gonna cost you WAY more than just buying one that hasn't ever been flooded.

Just my 2 cents...
