The sliding door hasn't been working since the snow on New Year day. And I didn't bother to fix it. And this time around it simply didn't fix itself when the temperature became warmer. Today I finally got to see my mechanic on my way to Home Cheapot. My mechanic told me I needed to re-seat the battery so as to reset the electronics of the power sliding door. But he needed to have the code to unlock or lock the alarm system, which I didn't have it committed to memory nor did I have it with me 24 by 7. Anyway, being the least handy man on earth, I am very reluctant to un-seat the gigantic battery myself, anytime I need to use a wrench and a screw driver is just too much, plus adding electricity to the mix just gave me pause. http://www.hightechdad.com/2007/01/17/fixing-a-honda-odyssey-automatic-sliding-door/
I did my Google search on this problem some time before but never before did I find this easy fix: pull fuse number 13 and push it back in. I was ecstatic to read that except I had no idea where fuse 13 is. Further search returned the result I was looking for. The fuse is located on the right hand side of the front passenger leg well. It's definitely meant to be user serviceable. I tried to pull it out with my bare hand but it was too snug, so I wondered if I needed a pair of pliers or something; at the same time, I was wary that I might break something if I didn't pull it out properly. The manual came to my rescue. Actually there is a fuse puller provided, inside the fuse box under the hood on the messenger side. Armed with the fuse puller, a torch light (my eyesight isn't great) I was able to pull fuse #13 which says nothing about the sliding door but does say clock on the manual. I pulled it out using the fuse puller and plugged in back in after some 30 seconds or 1 minute. And everything just worked. The power sliding door roared back to life.
Thanks Internet, thanks Google. And a big thank to myself.
