Air bag indicator light on and off. After two years the light on most of the time and it went off automatically for a while then came back on. I call to american Honda motor Inc. They don't want to create a recall for that because that will be different component fail in that case. They just want to create the recall for each component break down. They not cover the repair cost and depend on which component under warranty then Honda will not charge the parts. Otherwise we need to pay all the repair. I request for the recall for the SRS light on. Because a lot of the owners think that is not important they think just the light is on and keep driving. I was thinking the same way too. That's why I want to request that recall asap for the SRS light on so we will save the people life in advance.

We were traveling at about 55mph when the car in front of us suddenly came to a complete stop. I stepped as hard on the brake as I could and we hit the rear of the car in front straight on. The complete front of my car was crushed. We were thrown against the seat belts and both suffered cracked sternums. None of the air bags deployed. I have photos of my car after the accident.

problem #17

Oct 012013

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • 55,000 miles
Honda Odyssey 2005 model vehicle seat weight sensors could result in disabling the air bags. If a weight comparable to a child (such as school bag or groceries or a box) is placed in front passenger seat and seat belts are not buckled, air bags are disabled and the indicator light on the dashboard is illuminated. Even after removing weight the light stays illuminated. Subsequent passenger sitting and seat buckling do not have any effect on the disabling of air bags and indicator. It has to be reset by a dealer. This could endanger the passengers in Honda Odyssey 2005.

The air bag light stays on frequently, but not all the time. I noticed Honda Odyssey 2003 and 2004 model are currently under investigation for air bag problems including air bag warning lights illuminating. My Odyssey is 2005 model and is having the similar lighting problem. Can the Agency also investigate the year 2005 model please? I am very concerned the potential problems it may lead to. There has been no accidents with my minivan.

The air bag malfunction light comes on sporadically- looking on line I see there was a recall in 2005 for a malfunctioning airbag sensors in the 2005 Odyssey - but ours did not get the recall notice - it looks like there are several other 2005 Odyssey owners that also currently having this issue- the 2005 recall on this should have been more comprehensive so we would not be getting malfunction warning.

The brakes on this car never worked well. They screeched and squealed and were slow to respond. Despite many trips to the dealer and mechanics, they insisted nothing was wrong. I rear ended someone coming down a hill because I was unable to brake. The difference in speed must have been at least 35 mph. My airbags did not go off. I hit the seatbelt way too hard. The car in front of me did have his airbags go off.

I noticed that the airbag light came on and stays on when I drive the vehicle. I took it in to get the emissions checked and the mechanic suggested I look into recalls. Found one related to this, so I called Honda to discuss. Have not been able to reach them yet.

The airbag dash light came on and stayed on. I took my minivan to the Honda annapolis dealership service department where they ran diagnostics. They told me nothing was wrong with my airbags. They did find, however, that the driver's seatbelt needed to be replaced, so they did so free of charge. They weren't able to tell me why the airbag light came on, and told me to be grateful, as if there was something wrong with airbags, it would have cost me a lot of money to have them replaced.

This vehicle was not involved in an incident. I wanted to file a complaint regarding the safety feature of the airbags. The SRS light remains illuminated on the dashboard. I noticed a recall on other 2005 Odyssey and wanted to see if other 2005 Odyssey owners have experienced the same issue. This is a safety issue that I take seriously and should not have to pay to have fixed. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
