2010 Honda Odyssey circuit question

Asked by Nov 14, 2015 at 02:45 PM about the 2010 Honda Odyssey EX-L

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We just bought this vehicle used and everything worked great, but it had a wheelchair lift in the back.  I removed the wheelchair lift and had to cut power to it (just a standard black and red headed back towards the front).  I taped them off and left the rest of the wire under the car.  

Now the right side door and rear door do not get any power.  I disconnected the battery while I did all this and I checked the fuses.  All looks okay.  By all counts this doesn't make sense.  Any thoughts?

Sounds like when the lift was installed they tapped into the wiring harness for the doors and created a "loop". I've run into similar situations. The best thing to do is trace the lift wires back into the vehicle to see where they go. You'll find a splice. Wiring is color coded so you can basically take the lift wires out of the circuit and reconnect the wires of the same color, on the original vehicle wiring, using butt connectors and heat shrink tubing to protect the repair from moisture and dirt getting in there.
