I have so far removed all connections, and have removed the first 17mm bolt of which i can see. My car is a '96 and was not under the recall. These must be reconnected where you took them off or your motor won't start. The failure recurred on numerous occasions. The second 17mm bolt which is on the lower left hand side of starter is too close to the engine housing to allow me to use both a 17mm socket or 17mm spanner. I had no help from multiple calls to Honda customer service on Jan. The failure mileage was 166,000.
The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. Once all that is done you should be able to use the back of a hammer to tap the starter gently and I mean gently and remove it. He looked at the Odyssey and informed me that my engine was shot. We were able to coast to the side off ramp off the freeway. It's going to take a lot of patience but you'll get it. The larger diameter wire is connected to the B terminal with a nut.
Those aren't the ones you want. Towing service tried to unlock engine using door lock trick and the engine started. You will need a 10mm, 14 mm, 17mm, and a 9mm wrench. Choose Quality-Built and rest assured in ultimately reliable performance with each turn of the key. You will notice the starter drive housing with a top and bottom bolt. On January 3, 2007 the car died while driving on the highway, and I had the vehicle towed back to my local mechanic.
You want it tightened nice and snug. Odyssey starter motors are available for purchase online and you can take advantage of our Same-Day Store Pick-up. You'll at least want a few extensions and a swivel to give yourself some options to reach it. The dealer stated that the vehicle was not being driven enough. I hope the car is already headed downhill!! How did you get the second bolt out? I am worried about my warranty what if it expires then suddenly they will find out what's wrong with the vehicle and payment will come out of my pocket. If you disconnected the spark plug wires, reconnect those in their correct positions. The next weekend the car died again.
My 2003 Honda Odyssey will no longer start. Modot truck stopped to check it out and recommended to have it towed. There are also numerous bulletins about this problem for the 1996 Honda Odyssey. I will respond within 48 hours to your comments and questions. Disconnect the starter ignition small wire by pulling it off it's connector. If it's an automatic, the starter is mounted between the engine and the firewall.
Again, use your new starter as a guide to where the rear bolt is. Finally consumer asked to have ignition switch replaced. The manufacturer was notified of the failures and the contact was provided case number: 06703538. Since the engine cannot be restarted while not in park, this requires coming to a complete stop without the aid of power brakes or steering. She only noticed her error when the car would not start back up. I understand that other models of Honda are being recalled due to ignition switch problems.
You will need another jack to sit under the oil pan, due to the fact that when removing the starter, the bolts through the starter go thru the front motor mount. If you have an aftermarket stereo system, make sure you have the unlock code, if necessary. Perhaps remove the spark plugs to see if they're wet with fuel. And the check engine light went on,we heard a noise and soon after all the dash lights went on followed by stiff steering wheel, and then the Honda completely shut off. Disconnect the large wire from the starter, usally a 13mm nut, and unplug the smaller wire. You only need to disconnect them at the distributor cap, don't pull them out of the valve cover. Other than that, it's just unhook a few wires, unbolt the old, bolt up the new and hook it up.
We have worked hard to design a site that caters to everyones Honda Odyssey Starter needs. Jun 20, 2011 My wife's 2006 Odyssey had the same problem today. We drove 2 hours away from home and stayed overnight. The vehicle was towed to the dealer for inspection where they advised that the ignition switch needed to be replaced. If need be, I will remove the starter and take it somewhere to be tested so I don't have to drive the van and get stuck somewhere far from home. Another is you may need to improvise like I did to replace the oil pump on my 89'.
Any guidance would be appreciated. You can try and use just the extension and socket. Eventually the keyway snapped inside. The failure mileage was unknown. Your sharp-looking Honda Odyssey needs fully functional parts every time you start your minivan. They were able to determine that the problem was a faulty ignition switch. Decreased level of driving quality and general functionality, higher petrol consumption, or threat of component malfunction are merely several negative aspects of driving a car with a defective auto component.
