Anyone else had water leaks in the cargo area of 06 Honda Odyssey? My husband thinks its from the rear light, just checking for other suggestions.

I have the same problem.

Mine is 2005 and the whole door has filled up and is holding water inside the door frame.

I have an 05' and the tail lights on the hatch are full of water. when you open the hatch it rains on your head. maybe it's the tail light gaskets. my buddy works at the dealer. I'll find out the low down and report back.....

guys - My husband looked and out tail lights was also filling with water. We ordered a new tail light at Advance Auto and replaced it. We've not had any problems since. Hope that helps!

I too have this problem. Did anyone find out if this was indeed a problem with the tail lights?

It was for us. Once we replaced the tail light, problem solved.

What have you done to get the water out and correct the problem? My van has water sloshing in rear door and I don't know what to do.

I have a 2008 Odyssey and the passenger taillight on the liftgate has started to take on water and when you lift the tailgate it "rains". Sounds like a design flaw! Guess I will try to replace it. Dealer looked at it and want $365 to replace. Hope to find it cheaper and do the work myself.

Remove the tailight assembly and turn it over and over till you see water dripping out and that'll be the leak. Dry it out and seal with clear silicone. Worth a shot.

My 2006 Honda Odyssey lift gate has water in it. When I raise the gate water flows out. Will replacing the tail lights fix the problem? How many complaints are need for Honda to have a recall?

Possibly. See if you can spot a leak in the tail light housing before you replace them.

Over the past week I had a puddle of water that kept getting bigger and bigger in the cargo area even though I kept cleaning the water out. It wasn't even raining and the water kept coming back. I noticed a puddle on the pavement behind my passenger side rear wheel and laid under the car to see where the leak was coming from. I got a few drips in my eye from a rubber plug above. I took a phillips screwdriver and started to pry the rubber plug loose, when the screwdriver slipped into a hole in the center of plug. Water (lots of water) came gushing out!(I didn't even see the hole in the plug at first because of dirt clogging it.) Now, a day later, my cargo area is dry! That was a quick fix!

I have a 2005 Odyssey. For the first time in 6 years, water streamed down on my head from the lift gate as I raised it up over my head today. We had a lot of rain and high wind last night. I will look at the tail lights to see if they are the source of water leaking in.

I just took mine in and was told the leak was from the tail lights. Honda refuses to cover the expense of fixing it claiming it is not covered under my extended warranty. Being that so many people are having this issue, has anyone looked into the possibility of the "lemon law" applying to this problem?

I have the exact same problem as Steve. Honda claims to have no knowledge of this whatsoever and they will not cover the expense.

My 2006 Odyssey has leaks in both rear lights and rains when the hatch is opened. I will be taking it in to be repaired soon.

Tim-I have the same problem with water in the rear gate in my 2006 Honda Odyssey. I don't see any water in the rear lights but it appears the entry point for the water must be somewhere between the middle of the door and downward. No water seen inside or out above the middle.

2005 model - same problem, just called Honda and there is a recall so I booked the van in at which time they will diagnose the leak. They did not tell me what the recall is regarding.
