2004 Honda Odyssey van. The ignition switch and turn signal switch fail to operate correctly. The turn signal switch assembly had to be replaced by the local dealership because the relay switch in the steering column would begin to activate while driving producing an electric odor. The turn signal relay switch was replaced at approx 110,000 miles. The ignition switch is now being replaced because the ignition key cannot be inserted to start the car routinely without being manipulated. When this car was relatively new and under warranty the fan switch had to be replaced. The car now has 150,000 miles. My concern is that the electrical components in the steering column are defective and that the turn signal relay switch had the potential to burn; and the ignition switch could fail during operation of the car. The ignition switch is a defective part, or the part is from an a prior recall of 1999 to 2003 ignition switch's recalled by Honda that were used in later year models. Potentially, the 2004 models should have been included in any recalls of the ignition switches.
I have an 04 Honda Odyssey with this same problem as this recall. You can remove the ignition key without shifting to park. It has happened a few times and the van starts rolling. Since the engine is off the brakes are very hard to press. In one incident I was out of the van when it started to roll. You do not have to force it to turn to lock, there is no resistance.

The interlock lever of the ignition switch may unexpectedly deform, which can allow the interlock function of a vehicle with an automatic transmission to be defeated. Consequence removal of the ignition key when the gear selector of a vehicle with an automatic transmission has not been shifted to the park position can allow the vehicle to roll away, increasing the risk of a crash. Remedy dealers will remove the original interlock pin and lever within the ignition switch, and replace them with new, designed components. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or about September 29, 2010. Owners may contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009. Potential units affected 384220 notes Honda (american Honda motor CO. ) r44.
