the check engine codes for my Odyssey (2003) indicate some tranny issues and possible causes include faulty speed sensor. Would anyone be able to advise how could I tell? I could see that the rpm goes up & down as I accelerate and decelerate. is this sufficient to determine that the sensor is working? Thanks.
We had a 2004. At first we would have issues getting it into Park. Soon after, transmission went completely bad. Just over 100k and Honda wouldn't do anything. Probably will never buy a Honda with automatic transmission again.
I was a loyal Honda owner for 20 years having two Accords before buying my current Odyssey. I have a 2004 Odyssey bought new. Transmission failed in 2011 at 99,000 miles and had to replace it, but the dealership I brought it to did not mention the recall or problems and gave me a $5,500 estimate to replace. I had it towed to a transmission shop that replaced it for $2,500 with a rebuilt transmission. I recently found a website that suggests steps to take if you have had these problems; it is http://www.odysseytransmission.com. I never received any recall notices for this issue, but have received others in the past for different issues. I am now completing the "5 steps you should do" suggested on the Odyssey Transmission website. Whether I ever buy another Honda depends on how or if Honda handles my complaint. I'll let you know what happens.
I've had two Odys and one transmission problem which was fixed instantly including a loaner and cost me not a dime.
If you have the slightest bit of trouble with your dealer call Honda corporate. They are better than any automotive customer service experience I've ever had.
It is 2014 and my 2000 Honda Odyssey is having tranny problems for the first time. The D indicator keeps flashing and my TCS, STM, and Check Engine lamps are all on. I only have experience with repairing my Ford Escort 1999 by the way, which is odd that it has the TCS and CE lamps on also, my 1994 Dodge Grand Caravan (transmission failed to shift from 2 to higher gears) and my 2001 Dodge Caravan (same tranny problem and engine failure...rebuilt it myself...kids, get a good education on this stuff...it helps), so I don't want to try and rebuild a Honda myself...I only have experience with American vehicles, no foreign ones. Am I the only one with this mass problem or has the same thing happening to other Odysseys this badly?
And I need to replace the headlamp cases because the previous owner had the parts, but lost the facility they were in as well as a new bumper for the van.
That's foreclosure for you. Pain in the tailpipe...
If you are going to get a new van, Grand Caravan's the way to go. My family has a few (relatives, grandparents, etc.), and the leather interior is fantastic. I also found UConnect to be very intuitive for me also and the USB port helps out greatly for when I want to really pump the bass on the way to a party. Sounds odd, but it works.
