Failure Date: 06/20/2003

The check engine light and tcs light comes on intermidently. Have complained about the check engine light from early on. Now 82,000 miles. . . Out of warranty. . . And service dept. Used diagnostics and said it was an ozone component. Replaced that on Friday and on Monday lights were back on. They say they can diagnose again and it could be 70 things. Can't afford to replace 70 things! had to replace brakes two years ago and they still squeak. Many problems with sliding doors. I need to find out if others have the tcs and check engine light problems or if there is a recall. Ready to trade!.

2000 Honday Odyssey w/40,000 miles. Check engine light came on. Took it to the dealer who advised it was unsafe to drive as the catalytic converter was plugged and would overheat. Two weeks later the part came in and they then advised that the oxygen sensors were also bad. Are these under emission warranty?.

Engine check light keeps coming on. Many Honda mechanics have input to this problem. Check code indicates that the solenoid bypass and the two way valve within the emission system have gone bad. We were being blamed for overfilling the gas tank. We do not do this. Finally mechanics find anothed check code indicating the fuel filler neck has a vacuum leak. Once they replaced filler neck, no further problems were encountered. Dealership was vann york Honda in high point nc.

I purchased a 1999 Honda Odyssey in Aug 1999. First account was in Mar 2000. By Nov 2000, vehicle was seen 3 times for the check engine light. Five years later, this vehicle has been serviced 12 times (working on number 13 now) for the check engine light. Egr kit has been replaced 5 times, remaining visits accounted for my cleaning egr ports, replacing the egr valve, and replacing the gas cap. I've had other vehicles for 7+ years and never replaced a gas cap! this vehicle has gone through 2? check engine light is tied to the emissions system. As a result, vehicle is now having problems passing inspection. During the last visit, local dealer replaced the egr kit in order to get the 05 inspection completed. Two weeks later the check engine light is on again. In addition, internal damage was found in the transmission in Aug 03. Dealer agreed to take care of this problem in good faith. This was prior to the official recall notice. At the time of service the mileage was clocked at 81823. Less than 1 year later (June 2004), it was discovered by an independent garage that the left axle seal going into the transmission was cracked and the transmission fluid was extremely gritty. When brought to the attention of the dealer, I was informed that the vehicle was out of warranty on the new transmission and I would have to pay for any service required (mileage was clocked at 102000). As a single mother of 3 young children, my main objective is to be able to transport them in a safe, reliable manner. Given the extent of my emission and transmission issues that remain unresolved, I cannot depend on this vehicle. This situation was first documented to Honda in Nov 2000. At that time they extended the warranty to 6 years/75,000 miles. Another letter was sent certified mail (signed for on 6 Aug 2004). I've yet to hear back from Honda. I'm very disappointed with this Honda product and even more disappointed with their (lack of) customer service.
