Default Odyssey Low battery charge warning light

Low battery charge warning light.

Does anyone know if Honda has cured this problem on the 2012 Odyssey?
Seems to be a real annoyance with the 2010 and 2011 models.
Thanks

I'll bet it's an annoyance. But it's not a defect, it's a
Congress/Obama "feature".

Remember that new 35mpg CAFE standard? Guess how many hoops
Honda's trying to jump through to meet that standard and still
offer you a 3.5L V6 engine?

Read Honda's carefully-worded press release, here:
<http://www.hondanews.com/releases/2011-honda-odyssey-powertrain?query=odyssey>
Not that fuel economy is mentioned twice in the battery section.

Honda did something similar in the early-'90s, with a cruder form
of the "low battery" light. It was called the Electrical Load
Detector (ELD). It too was intended to increase gas mileage,
and it too caused myriad problems until Honda got the bugs
worked out.

You guys may feel confident and reassured when your elected
representatives ditch the gridlock and take decisive action,
but you sure don't like the side-effects!

That's probably just to distract you from the grinding noises and the
smell from your transmission.

I like this:

"Should an Odyssey owner accidentally leave the headlights on or not
close a door causing an interior light to remain on, after a set period
of time the BMS will automatically terminate power delivery to prevent
the battery from going dead."

Ummmmm....I had a Subaru THIRTY YEARS AGO that simply tied the
headlights to the ignition. Ignition off, headlights off. Easy.

And Toyota for YEARS AND YEARS has turned off the headlights when you
open the door after turning off the car. Not rocket science AT ALL.

And yet, Honda for years just chimed at you. "Hey, turn the headlights
off! Even though it's clear by my chime that I know you want them off,
I'm too stupid to do that for you!"

This is Honda telling us how they've finally "invented" sliced bread.

Well, technically, only a single item regarding fuel economy was
mentioned there.

They told you WHAT they were going to tell you, then they TOLD you that.

The first mention was the introduction, outlining the benefits briefly.
Then the went into detail about the technology, one item at a time.
