Honda Odyssey Check Engine Light on, Catalytic Converter Issues
Honda Odyssey Problem
Average Mileage: 125,495 mi (70,000 mi - 200,000 mi)
I had my catalytic converter replaced with an after market one four months ago. Last week I had my muffler replaced, and the man that replaced it said the converter was not done very well and he welded a spot on it for me. Since then, my check engine light has been on. I have been told not to be concerned about the light being on because the computer doesn't recognize after market catalytic converters. Is this true. Should I stop worrying about it.
My 05 Odyssey had 4 catalytic converters on it and ALL burned out. Honda charged me about $1,000.00 every single time to replace them. They said they didn't know why they went bad. I finally had a non-Honda mechanic be honest with me and tell me that I had a leak in my fuel system which was apparently not worth fixing. He told me to sell the vehicle. Wish I had known this MUCH earlier from the Honda service technicians. Apparently this is a VERY common problem with the Odysseys. Why hasn't there been a recall???!!!

My check engine light came on and I was told it was the Catalytic Converter. We tried a gas additive and using higher grade gas. It stays off for a while after it is reset, then comes back. Now we are thinking of replacing the Converter with an after market Converter. Hoping this will solve the problem.
