Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

My 2004 Honda Odyssey automatic power sliding door opened while driving onthe highway going 55 mph. It also opened while driving 35 mph. It opens on its own whenever it wants and will not close or lock completely. I have contacted Honda Corp and they state that I have to pay the $100's or more to get diagnosed. I feel it is a safety issue!! and should be fixed for free. An automatic door that opens on its own is a safety issue. I have contacted the dealership I bought it from and they state I should pay for it as well. I am not the only owner with the same issue. A kid could fall out when the door opens or if I get in an accident and that door opens the person sitting there would be dead!!! I have video taped it opening while driving!

While driving on the highway my passenger side power door kept opening and closing on its own. I tried to manually shut it and it still will not completely shut. The same happens with the driver side power door.

My 2003 Honda Odyssey keys haven't been able to open my driver's side door for almost a year. A few weeks ago I started having the same problems with my ignition. It's getting harder every day and taking more time to trick my key into the ignition lock. If I don't wiggle it in perfectly it will get stuck half way in and I have to trick it back out of the lock. I have an appointment at the Honda dealership tomorrow to fix whatever the problem is but he said to plan on at least $500 for new cylinders and/or ignition, plus possibly new keys. I'm really frustrated with this because it looks like so many people are having this problem so it must be a defect.

There were no events or issues leading up to the event. While traveling at a speed of approx 35 mph the latch on the slider door (driver's side) became disengaged and the slider door opened. The door was properly closed and and locked. The slider failed to close after that. Put the vehicle in for replacement of latch.

We have a 2004 Honda Odyssey and the passenger's side sliding door will not securely close. It closes most of the way then, instead of latching, stays just unlatched and keeps the warning going off. I hear this is a common Honda problem. I am concerned because my has to turn off the electric doors in order to drive the vehicle (even after bumping the door closed) and that (1) negates the warning feature and (2) makes the vehicle unsafe in my opinion because the doors do not function properly.

The rear hatch on my 2004 Honda Odyssey will not open. The handle appears to no longer be attached to the opening mechanism. I know there are screws on the bottom of the inside door panel to remove this panel, but because the door won't open, I am unable to reach the screws.

The drivers side sliding door will no longer latch. It started out a month ago springing open as it was about to shut all the way. Then we had to help it, by pushing as it shut to get it to close all the way. After a few weeks, that did not work either and we had to hip check it to get it to close all the way and lock down. Now even that will not work and it will not latch at all. This should be considered a safety issue with this vehicle. We will consult our mechanic.
