2012 Honda Odyssey ProblemsElectric Sliding Door Issues
There have been some issues reported with the electric sliding doors. Our technicians remind us that proper diagnoses will be necessary to determine the cause of various faults which may occur.
The front brake rotors can warp and cause a vibration when braking. The rotors will need to be machined or in cases where they are worn to thin, replaced to correct this issue.
The Honda Odyssey may develop issues with the automatic transmission.
Rough shifting may occur, and the “D4” light and check engine may begin to blink. The check engine light will also illuminate, and OBD trouble codes P0700, P0730, P0740, P0780, P1768 and/or P1768 will be stored in the computer.
If the transmission shifts roughly, the failure is very likely mechanical failure of the transmission. If the transmission performs normally, a faulty sensor, or dirty transmission fluid may be the case.
In most cases, it is necessary to use professional diagnostic equipment to provide a diagnosis, and complete the repair.
The longevity of the transmission is dependent on strict adherence to the manufacturer's recommendation for ATF replacement intervals and procedure.
2012 Honda Odyssey QuestionsWhy would both Check VSA System and Check Emissions System lights be on? (1 answer)
Odyssey wouldn't start yesterday. Battery is fairly new. Jumped it, ran it for 30 minutes. At restart, it struggled to start but got going. Then both the Emissions System and VSA system lights were on. A couple of months ago Honda replaced front axles under warranty. Any idea what this means?

2012 Honda Odyssey RecallsSecond Row Outboard Seats Release Lever Remains Unlocked
The locking mechanism for the second row seats that secures them after accessing the third row may stick in the unlocked position. Dealers will install an additional bracket and spring to both second row outboard seats free of charge to resolve the concern.
The shift interlock system is designed to prevent the shifter from being moved out of the park position unless the brake pedal is depressed. These vehicles are being recalled because during sub-freezing temperatures, the interlock mechanism may be slow to operate. The could allow the shifter to be moved from the park position when it should not be allowed to do so. As a result the vehicle could roll unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will install an updated shift interlocking mechanism to correct this concern.
During manufacturing, some of the metal rivets used to secure components of the driver's airbag may not have been installed. A missing rivet could alter the performance of the airbag during deployment, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will inspect the driver's airbag module and replace it if necessary.
