August 4, 1999

American Honda Motor Company

Model: Honda Odyssey

Year: 1999

Number Involved: 4,937

Dates of Manufacture: August 1998 - January 1999
Defect: On EX model vehicles, the power door lock remote control actuator unlatches the door in response to input from the remote transmitter. Excessive grease in the actuator could cause a slow return of the activation lever to the proper latching position. If the activation lever has not returned to the proper latching position by the time the sliding door closes, the door will not latch.
Remedy: Dealers will replace the power door lock remote control assembly. Owner notification was expected to begin during July 1999. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.
