Honda Odyssey doors unlocking and windows going down automatically


Asked by May 31, 2015 at 08:30 AM about the 2012 Honda Odyssey

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So for the past couple months I've had issues where the locks start clicking to "unlock"
while driving around.  It is intermittent and there is no pattern of when it happens.  In
addition to this, I've had issues where as soon as we get out of the car the windows all go
down.  This seems to be different than those that come back later to finding windows
down - mine go down the second we turn off the car.  Some times they down all the way,
sometimes a little, sometimes not at all.  It's not the key FOB because typically it's still in
the ignition.  I have checked fuses, changed key FOB's but it still happens.  Any ideas???

Hello, This is the wonderful world of the Nanny State... Your vehicle under certain crash conditions, rollovers, etc, will unlock all doors and lower all windows... So, within that system is a defect. When my Niece's started this, I fixed it...traded it for a real SUV, a GMC, let someone else worry about those O'Dessies.... Hope you have a good Honda electrical man,,,,you will need him. Good Luck, AskTrannyMan
