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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Bought a 2011 Honda Odyssey touring elite in 3/2011. Now 4 months later I am getting the "battery charge low" warning. Have taken the car to the dealership and spoke to them. They state it's not a problem and I need to drive the car more. It is concerning that the car shuts the dome lights off, even the dash lights off automatically. This is a supposed safety item of the car that I am to ignore? I am deeply concerned regarding this issue. First, Honda is not acknowledging the seriousness of this -- "ignore it. It's not a problem." Second, this issue, I feel, is potentially placing my family in danger if the battery cannot stay charged. Finally, this is not an infrequent issue as evidenced by the number of posts/complaints on the NHTSA website and other forums on the web ( yet Honda continues not to put out a tsb regarding this problem. The complaints continue and no action is being taken by Honda to fix the problem. This seems reminiscent of Toyota stating there wasn't an accelerator pedal issue. Something needs to be done before someone is hurt, and it seems the lowly consumer is not making it happen.

Batt lo warning comes on from time to time in our 2011 Honda Odyssey. I have had the vehicle at the dealers twice for this problem, one time for 2 days with nothing more from the service manager "to drive the car more to keep the battery charged up" this is not a fix, it is only a band aid. Honda of America service rep I talked with was a total waste of time. I told him the wife is worried that if it is real and ignored she may be left stranded which could be a danger to her in these times. Honda has sent a "service news article" to their dealers about this problem but again their comment to fix the problem is to charge the battery and momentarily disconnect the battery sensor for 10 sec, and again this was done to our vehicle and was only a short term fix., within days it was doing it again. Honda needs to step up to the plate and get this generic problem fixed.
