Power sliding door won't close all the way

Problem with power sliding door. On our 2000 EX Odyssey, the passenger side power sliding door closes but not quite all the way, it will not "engage", or "catch". Therefore, the van thinks the door is still open (open door light is on, buzzes continually when put into gear, and interior lights stay on). However, the power sliding door INDICATOR light is NOT on, so the van thinks the door is fine, but still open. I have to get out, walk around, and physically BUMP the rear of the door the final centimeter or so to get it flush. For some reason the back lock part isn't "catching". I've tried the #13 fuse, cleaning everything, etc. Any ideas?

i had the same problem. the door latch probably needs replacing. the dealership 1st replaced the junction box which did not fix the problem but cost me over $200. then they replaced the latch which solved the problem. good luck.

Same here, and mine is a '99. Rollers on both doorshad to be replaced and the passenger side motor. One door started not "catching" and I too, had to bump it closed with my hip, making a dent in the process,the spot where the internal controls are for the door itself. My brother works for Honda and said if your power door light is on the dashboard and won't go out, youve already burned out that door's motor. It just cost me over $700. to fix. I drove like this for over a year and simply turned the door switch off to shut out the noise. When the other door got stuck while I was manually working them (you should feel the pain in my shoulders)half way open, I had to get it fixed.

I am looking to possibly buy a used Honda Odysses it is a 2001 and it has 150,000 miles on it. the doors seemed to sometimes not want to close but if I gave it a moment it would close. The dealer wants $6,100 for the car and I am not sure if that is a good deal or not. How many miles do any of you Odysses owners have on your vans?? the van looks and runs great. The van ruuns like it is new and it has a clean title I did the car fax on it. the miles is the only thing that scares me a little. though, I know it is a honda and that is the only reason I am even considering it....what do all of you think out there? If you ahve an Odysses with high miles please let me know what you think about this deal..
