2003 Honda Odyssey Problems

Check engine light due to faulty EGR valve

The V6 engine is prone to problems with the exhaust gas recirculation valve (EGR valve) which can cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate.

Automatic Transmission Issues

Erratic operation of the transmission, which may or may not be accompanied by illumination of dashboard warning lights, would indicate internal transmission faults. Replacement of the transmission is generally required to correct this issue.

Power seat failure due to detached cable
On some models the power seat can become inoperative when a cable becomes detached. Replacing the cable will fix this issue.
