2004 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

problem #4

May 312009


  • 100,000 miles


A passenger in the car was bringing the window down. The passenger window dropped into the door, just fell down into the door with a loud noise. The window did not shatter but the window would not roll up. We took the car in for service. The door had to be taken apart to fix the window. Also, we replaced the passenger door and driver door electronic control units. The first time, the window did not work. The second time both units were replaced, the window can now be controlled from the passenger side, but not the driver side. Since then, a number of other Honda Odyssey (2003-2005) having this exact issue have surfaced. This seems like a manufacturing issue and should be fixed by the dealer not the consumer.

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.

The contact owns a 2004 Honda Odyssey. While driving approximately 65 mph the contact attempted to open the rear passenger side window but it would not open. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer who replaced the window motor. Approximately, one year later, the identical failure recurred on the rear driver side window. The vehicle was taken to an independent repair shop where the control on the rear driver side door panel were replaced. The failure continued to recur. The failure mileage was 56,462 and the current mileage was 66,462.
