Customer Question

2005 odyssey. my dashboard lights are out. headlights work. entertainment lights and dvd work. the van is running fine.
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Honda. The Honda Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: the vehicle is running fine. the gauges are stuck in position. the dashboard lights are out as well. i'm guessing it is a fuse, but i'm not sure.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: if it just a fuse or something easy like that i can do it myself
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Honda Mechanic should know about your Honda?
Customer: several warning lights came on when the vehicle was started. it was driven for a few miles and then turned off for a couple of hours. when it was restarted, the dash lights and instruments were no longer working.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Honda Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello, I will try to help you with your concern

Entering the self-diagnostic function

Before doing the self-diagnostic function, check the No. 7 (7.5 A) fuse and the No. 21 (7.5 A) fuse in the driver's under-dash fuse/relay box.

  1. Push and hold the SELECT (Dash lights brightness control) button.

  2. Turn the headlights ON.

  3. Turn the ignition switch ON (II).

  4. Within 5 sec., turn the headlights OFF (AUTO), then ON and OFF (AUTO) again.

  5. Within 5 sec., release the SELECT button, and then push and release the button three times repeatedly.
