For the last 2 weeks I have had a strange problem with my 2000 Odyssey: While driving the ABS light and brake light come on. At the same time, the check engine light comes on, and the power to the radio goes off. A second or two later, the radio comes back on, the engine light goes off, but the 2 break lights stay on. If I continue driving, the same thing continues to happen with the radio and engine lights.
If I turn the vehicle off, it resets everything, and all is ok for either hours or a few days. Then it happens again.

any ideas

I am posting to see if you got any response because the same thing happened to me for the first time today-- also a 2000 Odyssey. I got home, turned the van off, then went around the block with no problem. So, I can expect this to happen again?

My 2000 Odyssey did this today as well. My engine light has been on for a while due to catalytic converter. But today, the TCS light, ABS light, and BRAKE light all came on at the same time. I did not have the radio on. Anybody know???

I saw elsewhere on the internet that this happens a lot in the 1996 version, and others as well. No conclusive answer on this as I haven't taken it in yet, but it makes me wonder if it's really important.

I have a 1999 odyssey and I have had the problem described above. The most recent time when all the lights went on, including the ABS light, the engine shut off. Is it time to get rid of it?

I have the same problem except my car is a 1999 VW GTI. The mechanic could not figure it out.

I had the same problem with my 1999 Odyssey. I asked a friend who happens to work for Honda. He immediately said replace the battery. I did and haven't had the problem since, it's been about 3 months.

My 1999 Odyssey, 102000 miles, had the TCS, ABS, and BRAKE warning lights, come on and stay on all at once. At my destination I was out of the vehicle for an hour. When I started again the lights were off. After 10 minutes the radio began to go silent for several seconds then came back on. After occurring
3 times, the same three lights came back on.
No answers as of yet. However, the last time I had the oil changed the mechanic found that the battery cable was beginning to corrode.

Same thing (TCS, ABS and BRAKE lights, not the problem with the radio) happening intermittently for the past year or two on my 2000 Odyssey. Dealer tells me they are getting intermittent communication with the ABS controller/computer, and want to replace it (for $1,300 parts +$250!!).

I think I will just replace the battery ...

Make sure to check your battery connections. I work at a car dealership and they said if there isn't 12 volts to the car weird things will happen like idiot lights turning on and off and other things. I found out that my connection to my positive terminal on the battery was loose. I tightened it and haven't had a problem since.

My 2000 Honda Odyssey is doing the same thing - just started 2 weeks ago - intermittently and the dealer can't find anything wrong!
