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

Impact damage to the front of the vehicle can cause the primary oxygen sensor to blow fuse 15 and cause the Check Engine light (MIL) to come on. In most cases the primary oxygen sensor needs replacing and a new fuse installed to repair the issue.

On certain models poor igniter connections can cause misfires and catalyst deterioration. Cleaning and securing the connections will correct the problem.

Contamination can get in the distributor, cause a misfire and set a Check Engine light.

The Check Engine light may illuminate with a transmission fault code. The repair for this concern is to replace the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) and flush the transmission.

Rear vent windows not operating properly is a common problem with Honda Odesseys. The solution is to replace the window motors.

The IMA light coming on is usually caused by a battery pack that is no longer charging correctly. Replacing the battery pack will turn off the IMA light.

Map light will not turn on when opening drivers or passengers door. Caused by a faulty door switch. Requires replacement of door switch on side of non operation.

On certain models a faulty Air Fuel (A/F) sensor can cause the Check Engine light to illuminate. Replacing the Air Fuel (A/F) sensor will repair this problem.

A binding fuel filler cap can cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. Our technicians tell us this can be caused by a problem with the fuel filler neck which may require replacement.

On certain models the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) can misinterpret the secondary oxygen sensor data and set a false Check Engine Light. A software update from Honda is needed for this issue.

Worn engine mounts can lead to unwanted engine vibrations being transmitted to the body, most commonly with the engine idling and the transmission in reverse. Replacing the worn mount(s) should correct this concern.

Cracked exhaust is common on both exhaust manifolds and manifold/catalytic converter combination. Replacing the cracked component will repair the problem.

A faulty Electric Load Detector (ELD) can cause the head lights to dim and/or illuminate the Check Engine Light. A failed ELD will require replacement.

The AC compressor may seize resulting in loss of cold air from the AC vents. Often when the compressor fails in the fashion, debris is spread through out the entire air conditioning system resulting in very expensive repairs.
