Customer Question
2005 odyssey. my dashboard...

2005 odyssey. my dashboard lights are out. headlights work. entertainment lights and dvd work. the van is running fine.

Mechanic's Assistant: 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.

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.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Great! What have you tried so far?

If it just a fuse or something easy like that i can do it myself

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Honda Mechanic should know about your Honda?

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.

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
