HelloCustomerand welcome to,


Do all the locks not work?


Have you tried to reprogram the remotes?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
Hi there, I think that reprogramming the remotes is what is required but do not know the procedure. Note that this is a Japanese Honda Odyssey (RA6) not the USA one. And yes all the locks work with the key. Thanks.
Expert:  HONDASERVICE7791 replied 8 years ago.

What year is your Odyssey? I believe the reprogramming procedure is the same, I will send you the procedure for the USA model of the same year.

Customer: replied 8 years ago.

It is a 2000 Honda Odyssey (RA6) but this model never made it to the US. It has the 2.3Litre 4 cyl engine not the V6 and has normal car type rear doors instead of the sliding ones. see this link -
