PROBLEM:SLIDING DOOR ON MY 1999 HONDA ODYSSEY.DOOR WILL OPEN, WHEN TRY TO CLOSE THE DOOR, IT STAR TO CLOSE TILL REACHES CLOSE POSITION THEN IT OPENS. THE ONLY WAY THAT I HAVE CLOSED IT WITH DIFFICULTY IS ,WHILE DOOR SLIDES TO CLOSE POSITION I PHYSICALLY PUSH ON THE DOOR WHEN IT IS WITHIN 1-2 INCHES FROM THE CLOSED POSION,SOMETIMES IT TAKES 10 OR MORE TRIES BEFORE I FINALLY ABLE TO CLOSE THIS AUTOMATIC SLIDING DOOR.
HELP
THANK YOU

I have a 2000 honda Odyssey the driver side automated sliding door won't close. You press the button and it goes to close and then opens right back up. There is nothing obstructing the door and I tried the #13 fuse thing but it didn't work. Does anyone have any ideas as to what the problem is before I go and blow hundreds of dollars at the dealer.

I did a couple of time with #13, but it did not work. When i did #12, as well, it worked perfectly. ^^

Holy.........Cow!!!!!!!!!! My husband is having hip replacement surgery in a couple of weeks and I knew I had to get this door fixed so he could drive and easily access his walker from the driver's side sliding door.(I work on all of our cars.) I was about to give up and take it to the dealer until I Googled and found this forum. Within five minutes of reading the post, and after removing fuse 13 for 30 seconds, everything is back to normal.

Steve, I don't know how you figured out this trick... but you are the man!!!!!!!

The fuse # 13 removal and directions given back in 2006 worked PERFECTLY!!! Earlier today I went to Honda thinking it was jammed. The service guy wanted me to leave it there for the day and the initial cost was $120. I saved that plus some. I am thrilled for this information! Thank goodness for the internet too. Without it I wouldn't have ever thought about the fuse thing!!!

Best tip ever! I just pull out #13, waiting 30 seconds and put it back in. I've spend hundreds at the dealer to fix this same problem.

It worked for me too. Mine is a 99.

2000 Honda Odyssey automatic door problem. Driver's side door is not closing fully. The motor funtions and door slides open and close but when it goes to close, the door does not seal completely. I have been closing it fully by pushing in at the rear of the door just as it goes to complete the close. I have checked to make sure that there was nothing obstructing the door. Any recommendations?
There is more to the latching mechanism than one would expect. Replace the latching mechanism - about 1 hour of shop labor and about $180.00 for the part. There are recalls for this, but selectively. They even had to recall some of the recalls. Be very suspicious if being quoted $900.00 by a dealer. Good luck!

Hi Bob,
The same thing happened to me this past Saturday Feb. 18th. Try doing the following:
1.) Disable the power door switch on the left dashboard.
2.) Remove the power door fuses located under the front passenger leg area.
3.) Manually open and close both sliding doors.
4.) Restore the power door fuses located under the front passenger leg area.
5.) Enable the power door switch on the left dashboard.
6.) Try opening the sliding doors.

Add me as someone who is thrilled that this fix worked. I actually have a 2004 Hondaa Odyssey and was told by the dealer that I was looking at a 400.00 motor replacement. This after they charged me 80.00 last week to clean and lubricate the door. Has anyone had to repeat the fix after a certain time? If so how long?
Thanks again!

When i have my slidong door switch on, everything works fine. When in the manual position the doors are almost impossible to open. I tried pulling fuses and disconnecting the battery, neither worked. Anymore suggestions! Thanks

WOW. I haven't been so proud of myself in a long time!!
Our slider on our 2000 just stopped working this last week while on a family road trip in the mountians with 4 kids and a ton of stuff. We were pretty stressed as to where to find the time and money to get this fixed. I was convincing myself I could live without it being automatic. Well. I typed in a few keywords and found this info. I am beyond thrilled. Thanks for making my week!!

Make sure there is no connection/corrosion issues on the battery terminal.
My driver's side sliding door on my 2004 Odyssey was not opening or closing. Coincidently (or not) my drivers side window was also stopped working. I tried the #13 fuse removal trick for the door and was disappointed it did not correct my situation. I kept trouble shooting and was surprised to see that there were fuses for the door and the window in multiple fuse boxes in the vehicle. When I checked the fuse in the secondary fuse box under the hood, I noticed there was a cable going from the fuse box to the battery that was severely corroded to the point it was "dangling". I cleaned the terminal and re-attached the cable going to the fuse box. Both the window and the door started working. I never thought there was a battery/corrosion issue because the vehicle started normally and there were no other signs of a battery connection issue.
