Report: Rear (vent) Windows Operate Intermittantly, and Eventually Fail
Honda Odyssey Problem
Model Year Affected: 2002
Average Mileage: 95,425 mi (38,700 mi - 130,000 mi)
Rear vent windows not operating properly is a common problem with Honda Odesseys. The solution is to replace the window motors.

Both window motors failed.
Rear windows would not always open or close. Dealer said needs new window motors for about $100. plus labor elected not to do had them disconnect window motors with windows in the closed position.
This is a well-known problem with the Odyssey. It happened to me, and I found detailed instructions on repairing the problem on the internet (http://www.odytalk.com/showthread.php?29-How-to-Fix-your-Rear-Vent-Window-Motors&s=b2feb4ba865d367c997ac540399c6788&p=36#post36). I have yet to complete the repair; they've been completely inoperable for four years now... maybe this weekend I'll get to it. ;)
