I have a 2000 Odyssey with 13k miles. I take good care of the care and the maintenance. Recently, the car check engine indicator light and Traction Control System(TCS) indicator light started to light "on" during driving. The problem continue for a week until the light stayed "ON" all the time. The car also started to have problem during cold starts.
I do not use the TCS "Puerto Rico weather". I never put gas on my car with the engine running. I also follow the tips in the manual about the check engine light (gas cap tight)with no luck. I took the car to the dealer "ABREU POWER CARS" and after five days in service and a replaced oxygen sensor the car came out without the light on. That was yesterday 06/20/01. Today 06/21/01 both indicator lights came "on" again. Will anyone know if this is a common problem on Odysseys? Have anyone experience problems with this indicators lights?
I purchase this Honda after good results with my last one "Japan built Integra". I am worry about this problem since it is affecting two different systems and it looks as an electrical or computer module problem that my dealer could not fix.

Thanks in advance for any comments.

Regards,
L. Souto

Have you been trying to top off the fuel tank? The overflowing of the fuel may cause the fuel sensor module malfunction/damage. Engine light will be on. A honda dealer mechanic told me a few days ago.
One possibility, hope this help.

My very first trip to the gas station on my way home from KY the other night resulted in a 'overfill'.

Doh! The gas gauge showed '1/2 empty' but the pump cut off at like $7 or $8 so I thought that can't be right...some gas must have bumped the sensor of the nozzle or soemthing and so I tried again...splash splatter...ARGH!!!

I'm used to putting $20 in the Pathfinder whenever the needle reads 1/2 empty so I guess I've already learned a lesson the hard way regarding fill-ups.

lsouto,

Hopefully I have some helpful information
. I went through the same problem (except it was a 99EX). Check out this thread http://www.honda-odyssey.com/ubb/Forum2/HTML/000018.html in regards to your problem. In it you will find my problem (same as what you are experiencing) and the final solution which worked. You will see that it went to the dealer for a few trips until they got it correct. Maybe with this info you can point them in the right direction and save yourself some time and aggrevation. It worked for someone else too.

Good luck

I just reviewed the information on your post. It Looks very promising. Your description is exactly the same problem that is showing on my Odessey.

Thanks for the share information. I will give this information on the EGR valve to my realer with the part number and hopefully solve my problem. I will post the final results.
