My passenger sliding door has no power and even hard to move manually. Replacing motor assembly and Control Unit didn't resolve issue. Took it to dealership, they tried programming ($115.00) the control unit. Failed. charged $240+ to diagnose the problem. failed to diagnose the problem and replaced pinch sensor ($230) with no success. spent close to $1000 already and at the same spot. I have dealership stopped working on it as they want to charge $$$$$$$$ for further diagnose. I feel like hitting my head to the wall.. Any suggestion from you guys would be greatly appreciated

These doors are a joke. This is Honda's way of raising revenue. I wont buy another Odyssey. Doesn't Honda read the internet. They should recall these lousy doors. Families are worried as the door pops open while driving. Who can afford these erroneous trouble shooting costs! Sorry for your troubles. I am having the same problem. Both doors. Slightly different issues. I have tried everything. I will take this to a back yard mechanic before I give Honda money for this!

I had the same issue with my van, as described by Ted. And again, I tried everything. Researching online, I came across a forum called Odyclub.com . There an owner shares some info, which I then tried. IT WORKED!!!! And I proceeded to kick myself in the rear for not consulting the manual sooner! Here it is.....
In the owners manual, under the Slider Doors section, there is a "homing" procedure...
With the key in the ignition, remove fuse #7(back up) from the fuse panel in the driver side kick panel(This clears an error message in the cpu). All the interior power should shut down. Put the fuse back in. Manually open and close both slider doors, ALL THE WAY! Then turn the ignition to the ON position(do not start). Turn on the power door switch on the dash and ta-da. My doors worked! Hope this helps.

Arisa's procedure does work. Came upon this temporary resolution by accident several months ago. I say temp. because whenever someone pulls on the door and the door is still locked the problem resurfaces. I am yet to find the actual problem to properly resolve the problem once and for all.

I could not find reference to this in the manual as stated, but it worked for me also. I was ready to replace the control unit. I have not tried to open the door when locked to see if the problem comes back, but even if it does, at least I know how to clear it now.

How come Honda dealer didn't try this?? I was about to go to the dealer to have it checked out, but I know they'll gouge me with ridiculous charges. I am so glad I found this blog. The guy who I bought the Odyssey from said he just had the left sliding door fixed and replaced the motor and spent $800. My right sliding door was having the same issue, and I was worried that this would be the same problem until I found this blog. It took less than five minutes and $0!! I just tried it and it works. Thank you so much for posting this!

Did you ever find a permanent solution to this? Arisa's procedure does work for me temporarily; however, my automatic passenger door resets to not work once I start the ignition. It resets to not working every time. It works when the car is set to "On," but quits working when once the ignition is started. Any thoughts?

1.) Disable the power door switch on the left dashboard.
2.) Remove fuse #13 for 30 seconds or more from the passenger side fusebox. This will reset the door and the clock.
3.) Restore the power door fuses located under the front passenger leg area.
4.) Enable the power door switch on the left dashboard.
5.) Try opening the sliding doors.

That's it

I have similar problems and my solution is Don't ever buy a vehicle with electronic sliding doors. Go out and trade to a vehicle with real doors at your first opportunity. Problem solved

My solution is simple. Trade your vehicle at the first opportunity. I have had endless problems with these electronic sliding doors and I will buy an SUV with real doors soon. There are many vehicles out there that will give you great service. You should not have to worry about finicky sliding doors.
