2006 Honda Odyssey sliding door

Asked by Jan 29, 2013 at 05:09 PM about the 2006 Honda Odyssey EX-L w/ Nav and DVD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

the "slide door" warning light has been coming on the last two days.  After reading similar issues I've tried
each of them, the only one that works (kind of) is disconnecting the battery.  But after 2 times of opening
and closing the light comes back on.

Not sure which things you've tried, other than disconnecting the battery. There are contacts that signal the computer that the door is open/closed. There is an array of them on the door that match to those on the door jamb. They are spring loaded, so if they don't move freely, they will cause the condition you have. Some say to clean the contacts with a pencil eraser. It is also recommended that you use a silicone based lubricating spray because they don't oxidize, dry out, and lose lubricity. On the door side the contacts are spring loaded inside a plastic sleeve and the sleeve is spring loaded too so be sure to lubricate both surfaces on each contact. On the jamb, there is only the sleeve to lubricate. Lubricate liberally with a high quality silicone spray.
