i shouldn't be alarmed about the "loud" ticking sound that has apparently
gone on all night and caused the problems to begin with?

You can boost it to start it, or put a battery charger on it for a
couple hours, but afterwards you should disconnect the battery for ten
seconds to allow the van to reset a couple of things that get confused.
You'll also need to reset your radio's security code if it has the
blinking light on the faceplate.

Nope. The ticking is probably just some circuit that's gone wonky
because of low voltage. Possibly the gear shift lockout solonoid. It's
actually the headlights, or the interior lights that's run the battery
dead. That's why it's a good idea to 'unplug' the battery from the car,
so all systems can get a fresh restart.

Look at odyclub.com to find out how common this problem is, especially
on the '99 + series. The newer ones have WAY more power gizmos, and
sliding doors that don't always close properly.

thanks curly, i'll give your advice a shot first!!

mine doesn't have automatic doors, thankfully. with a toddler at the time,
i was afraid of those suckers!

of course odyclub.com's forums are down at the moment. :/ but i did find
that excellent picture of the torture someone did to a perfectly good honda
odyssey! :-D

Got kids? They put coins in the CD players and the results can be
unpredictable.

Ah, you have an LX. When the doors are open, the lights stay on.

On an EX, they're on a timer--5 minutes and they're off.

Are you kidding? My toddlers both figured those things out in no time.

In fact, I wouldn't have a van without electric doors, now that I've had
them.
