How to Reset an Electric Sliding Door on a Honda Odyssey

by Leonardo R. Grabkowski

The electric sliding doors (called power sliding doors by Honda) on your Odyssey van may need to be reset from time to time, particularly if the battery is replaced or disconnected for more than a few minutes. If your power sliding doors are not functioning correctly, either by using the door switch or the keyless remote switch, try resetting them to see if the problem is corrected. If resetting the doors does not fix the problem, there may be other problems with the power sliding door mechanism. See your Honda dealer for assistance.

Step 1

If the battery is disconnected, shut both sliding doors manually. Connect the positive battery terminal, then the negative. The doors will automatically be reset when the battery is reconnected. If the battery is connected, continue on to "Step 2."

Step 2

Turn the ignition on. Move the power sliding door switch to "Off," then move it back to "On." This switch is located to the left of the steering wheel. It's labeled "Main."

Step 3

Press and hold both power sliding door buttons until the doors close completely. If this does not work, turn the "Main" switch to "Off" and manually close the doors. Turn the switch back to "On." The power sliding doors should be reset.
