In the end of August the power windows stopped working in our Odyssey. When I dropped the car off at the dealer to fix the windows, the alarm system did not recognize the keys and went off every time the dealer tried to open the door. I brought in my wife's set of keys to see if that would resolve the issue but it did not. The car no longer recognizes either key or key fob and triggers the alarm whenever I unlock and open the doors. Additionally, the unlock button on the key fob somehow caused my windows to go down so they are stuck down and no buttons, door locks, windows, power sliding doors, or rear tailgate lift work. Honda does not know what the problem is and has been resistant to help fix the CA despite it still being under warranty.

About 2 years ago, the window actuator failed on the passenger side, I paid to repair this. Over the last 6 months, another 4 actuators have failed. One of them is the lock actuator on passenger side, second is the lock actuator on left sliding door, another is the window actuator on driver side and the actuator for driver side door lock. The problems of this magnitude are a serious safety issue as the window actuator on driver side suddenly failed while driving and was scary as the window just fell into the door. The other actuators failing with locks and doors can be a serious problems, especially with children in the vehicle where the window or door suddenly opens or closes. This seems to be an electrical component problem that need to be addressed by a national recall.

On my daughters 2007 Honda Odyssey, it has an automatic up feature for the drivers window. Once the window starts up (closing), if you put down pressure on the window it will reverse, do down a few inches and stop. But if you put pressure on the window, like a child leaning out the window, and it starts up the override feature will not stop the window and make it go down a few inches. The window will continue to close, only stopping when the motor is overpowered. This does not happen until quite a bit of force is applied to whatever is blocking the window, and in the case of a small child it could cause quite a bit of injury. I have never encountered a vehicle with an auto-up feature for a window. With the amount of force it takes to overload the motor a child can be seriously injured.

In November 2005 I purchased a new 2006 Honda Odyssey exl. Within a few days the driver's side power window (it is worth mentioning that I have not had any problem with the other power windows) often times did not close when I tried to close it. The worst times are when it rains or the temperature is cold. While under warranty I took the vehicle to another Honda dealer to have the window repaired. They attempted the repairs but were unable to fix the power window. I tried many jiffy lube and liquid wrench to lubricate the window per the dealer's recommendation but the result has been only temporary and the window continues to stay down when it should be closing.

While driving driver's side window blew in and shattered into the vehicle. The window was closed. Dealer stated this was not covered.
Driving down the interstate in my 2000 Honda Odyssey when the passenger side rear window imploded, shattering glass all over my two small children. The police officer who stopped to help us asked if the airconditioner was on, said that if the window was hot on the outside and the cold on the inside a window could shatter like that. We are reporting this incident to Honda as well, the window is being replaced.

Power sliding doors opens by itself. Dealer replaced latches. Problems still existed. Called and spoke with manufacturer's representative about problem and I asked for an extended warranty on doors. No response. Called dealer to fix problem. Dealer will not do repairs unless they see that doors are opens by itself. Also, sometimes power doors will not close fully in. Sometimes power doors buzzer will comes on occasionally. It's annoying. I think the defective doors are unsafe especially for children. I need a life time warranty on door problems. Also fan blower is noisy at medium to high speed. Dealer fix once. Problem arises again. 80-85% of the time the front brakes are grinding. New pads, same problem.
The power sliding door fails to open electronically, either through the remote, the driver's controls on the dash, or the handles (both interior & exterior) on the door. This only affects one door (so far). The dealer says that washers have to be attached to four grounding wires inside the door in order for the electrical circuitry to work correctly, at a cost of $240. It is already out of warranty, but it seems that I shouldn't have to pay to repair what appears to be a defect in either the design or manufacturing of the vehicle.

Side sliding door handle broke off when opening door. Pin that sheared off and that door pivots on appears to be made of plastic. These doors normally are powered open. Due to problem with switch door would only open manually. When opening manually these doors take considerably more force to open than a normal sliding door. With my little experience opening manually I apparently pulled too hard! this seems to me to be a flaw in the design of the handle.

Have had power sliding doors looked at several times since purchase. Each time dealer could not duplicate problem, till now. Door ajar buzzer would sound at highway speeds from driver's side door. Turning off power switch silenced the buzzer & door seemed ok. Lately, the door was not locking. Dealer duplicated the problem, replaced junction contacts with "upgraded" ones. Then noted the clutch motor that closes the door did not complete the job & that the door was not latching! he did not believe that it would open accidentally. We have placed 2 calls to Honda of north America, without response, looking for an extension on the warranty toward the replacement of this motor. Still waiting for response after 6 days.
Driver and passenger sliding rear doors latch inconsistently.
The sliding doors on my Odyssey have failed three times in less than a year. I bought an extended warranty so the dealer has been replacing the motors and latches. The concern is they are not latching after they fail. The other concern was they tried to tell my wife that she needed to pull on the top of the door to release the tension so not to burn out the motor. $26,000 and we need to pry the doors open? I lock them manually now because I do not want them opening while traveling.
Automatic doors sometimes fail to close completely, stopping mid-way. Need to restart car to close them. Warning lights (all) lit up multiple times on several occasions for about 2 minutes each time; then went off. Carbon deposit build-up in throttle cable makes the accelerator pedal very sticky and I need to constantly remind Honda service to clean and lubricate; otherwise, it becomes very sticky and I need to push hard on pedal ~ leading to hard acceleration.
When the electric sliding door on the passenger side closes it will not latch securely. You have to manually push it in order for it to latch. Several 2000 Odysseys have been recalled for this symtom, however, mine was not included in the recall. Dealership will not make a goodwill repair. A case has been opened with Honda but they state if they approve reimbursment for repair it will only be partial.
The minivan has automatic sliding rear doors that do not stop closing even when there is an obstruction. I have 2 small kids and am very afraid that if the door does not stop when I am obtructing it, that it is similarly not stop for unknowing kids.
7/29 large quantity of smoke emitting from drivers side door while driving and one window stops operating. 7/30 happens again while van is stationary and another window stops working. I disassembled the door and wiring harness to prevent further smoke/fire damage. Plastic and electrical components of the power window control are melted. American Honda is very uncooperative after a month of discussions and investigation by Honda technicians. Their story keeps changing. Today they requested that I mail all parts in question to them in CA.
