Left and right sliding doors do not properly latch to close door completely. Doors open while driving when navigating a turn or going uphill then close when coming to a stop or going downhill. Unsecured objects inlcuding humans can be thrown from vehicle or crushed resulting in injury or death.

Sliding rear doors fail to open or close. One must remove fuse #13 to reset the door. In the even of an accident or emergency, passengers sitting in the re rear seats could be trapped in the vehicle. Dealer repair quotes are in the $400 - $600 range. But the removal of a fuse resets the doors. Something is not right here. This happens several times a year and has been happening for the last 5 years.

The contact owns a 2001 Honda Odyssey. The contact stated that when depressing the lock for the rear sliding doors, the door would not shut completely. When using the manual lock, she could not determine if the doors were fully closed. The failure was previously diagnosed by the dealer, the door fuses and motor were replaced. The vehicle was not taken back to the dealer nor was the manufacturer contacted. The VIN was not available when the complaint was filed. The failure mileage was 120,000 and the current mileage was unknown.

The power sliding door on the driver side does not open and close. The "sliding door light" is illuminated. The passenger side sliding door works fine. (the passenger side power sliding door closes but not quite all the way, it will not "engage", or "catch". therefore, the van thinks the door is still open (open door light is on, buzzes continually when put into gear, and interior lights stay on).

2001 Honda Odyssey: The sliding side doors intermittently stick shut for no apparent reason, and they will not open until they decide to cooperate. This, to my mind, is a very serious safety concern as people in the vehicle would not be able to exit, and emt personnel would be greatly hindered in extracting victims of a crash. This condition can and does obtain for days at a time until, suddenly and for no apparent reason, the doors will start to operate normally.

We have a 2001 Honda Odyssey LX. The power sliding door on the passenger side suddenly quit working and will no longer close properly. The only way we have been able to continue driving the car without the incessant alarm is to shut off the power sliding door function and try to keep it shut. There are several potentially big problems with this. Number one - the kids cannot open the door manually, it is too heavy for them. The only option they have to exit the car is on the traffic side of the vehicle. The door will suddenly become ajar when we are driving, even with the locks closed, which is also a huge safety factor. I have tried to get this problem fixed professionally numerous times and I cannot get a satisfactory answer to what the problem is. I cannot sell this car in good conscience with an issue like this.

Passenger automatic van door on 2001 Honda Odyssey consistently refuses to completely close even after being "repaired" several times. Door has actually come open after vehicle is in drive. I had to physically hold the door closed with four children in the van, till my husband found a safe place to stop on the side of highway. We are constantly having to "bump" the door close and keep safety lock on. My kids are not allowed to sit near this door. This issue needs to seriously be addressed by the NHTSA as safety hazard that Honda will not comment on.

Dt the drivers side sliding does not latch, it will shut but it pops right back open. Even when locking the doors it will come back open. Contacted the dealer, and they want to charge a fee just to look at it. Contacted manufacturer, and they said there wer no recalls. This started yesterday July 14, 2005.
