When you crank the vehicle what does it do? Makes a clicking noise? Tries to crank? Does nothing?

Not sure of your technical knowledge but here are a couple of things you can try. Make sure the vehicle is fully in park, try to start. Then, after applying the parking brake, move the shifter to neutral and try to start. Next thing you can do is checking the fuses which should be fairly easy. Let me know.

I have a 2007 Odyssey and began having this problem. Garage said it was the starter, which they replaced, but the problem persisted. When I try to turn the ignition on, there is no sound but dash lights come on. I then have to take it out of park while in "accessory" mode, put it back in park and it starts up, even though sometimes I have to do this several times. I was told there is either a problem between the ignition and the gear switch or there is a problem between the gears and the transmission. Either a short or lose connection??? I am sure this would cost me thousand to have fixed, and since I am on a fixed, limited income and a senior citizen, there is no way I can take it to a ripoff place since I spent my last $700 to have a starter replaced that I didn't even NEED! Makes me so angry, because I TOLD them it was not the starter in the first place, but did they listen? NO!!!

I checked other forums and they suggested it has to do with the timing belt tension.

NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH

1 people found this helpful.

If not cranking could be Crank Shaft switch.

Was my starter, fortunately napa's part is manufactured by the same company that builds Honda oem and more than half the price cheaper, isn't hard to change out once that battery tray is gone also showed me i needed to replace my cracking intake hose which was cheaper at Honda than a box parts store (go figure but pays to shop for parts) also noticed the factory positive connector was not tight o. Battery, shop kept putting caps over rather changing that terminal, replaced the terminal and also will be replacing the grounding cable for the van and negative terminal on battery, highly corroded.

What about the transmission neutral safety switch? It may need replacement. Checkout You Tube videos.
