Happened to me this morning. Not a full tank.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by New Honda and Ody Owner:
This happened to me in my one month old - 1005 miles brand new ody too.
Very ticked off - I actually dduplicated the problem again. Open the passenger side sliding door, then driver's passenger slide door, leave the dome light in the middle position and try to start the van. It will not crank over - I had to give it gas to crank over - very POOR Design for a Honda
Dealer and Zone office WILL BE Getting a COMPLAINT</font>

Anyone else experience this yet?
Van sat all day at work, Went to leave work, van cranked for about 10 seconds before firing!! This is the 2nd time this has happened. Ody is only a week old!!
Thanks for the explanation. How did you adjusted it?<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by 2002EXL:
Sorry, Technical jargon...
TPS stands for throttle position sensor (how much fuel is going in or how fast you want to go)
Plenum is considered an upper intake manifold (under that pretty plastic cover that says Honda on top of the engine)
A TPS switch is nothing more than a potentiometer (sp?) ie a volume knob. The more one presses the gas pedal, the more the TPS moves thus, letting more fuel in. Theres a whole lot of other software issues going on at the same time, but thats pretty much it in a nutshell.
As far as damaging the EVP system (carbon canister) by topping off your fuel tank, Unless there is a problem with the system, it can't be damaged. When fueling, when the pump stops at full don't go any more and make sure the fuel cap locks when you put it back on. If you don't you may set a OBD (computer) code that may need to be cleared by a compitent repair shop.

I think you have a different problem... Mine will crank but won't fire, yours sounds like it won't even crank!!!<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by MommyOdy:
I have had this problem 4 times from 850 miles to 2000 miles so far.It will not turn over until the third try every time. Took it in to dealership,they said it is because the computer is still learning the car.But I am not satisfied. It has happened on cold&hot days ,tank full or empty!!!!!
