After extensive research on cause of dome/reading light failure, I found out most of the case for Honda Odyssey not working on single side is likely the switch failure but not the burnout of bulb. This meant I will only be able to fix it, if I endeavor to open the whole unit and replace the switch.

After 30 mins of trial-and-error approach on detaching the dome/reading light unit and $15 package from Amazon (2 LED bulb+2 Switch+Plastic wiggling tool) finally changed the faulty switch – now back to brightness in Honda Odyssey ๐Ÿ™‚

(It always takes 3x times which Youtube shows me to take ๐Ÿ™‚ but I was able to fix! Training credit goes to this video )

The familiar rattling noise around 2000-2200 RPM restarted on my Odyssey but this time at slightly different location – the clamp solution last time at Catalytic Converter on the passenger side seems intact while the noise was from the middle part so I tested with similar solution on the other Catalytic Converter.

This time, I tried the nail as a plug between the gap of heat reflector and Catalytic Converter with micro ratchet and looks like it is working fine!! Let’s see how long this plug will stay intact at the location ๐Ÿ˜€


Odyssey Headlight Replacement

Our poor minivan has been struggling to blast the lights out due to cataract ๐Ÿ™‚ so planted a new eye lens on it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Originally was planning to either use toothpaste cleaning or sandpapering+clear coating but found a good deal out new headlights so endeavored into replacement works ๐Ÿ™‚

Now things are much clearer in nights ๐Ÿ™‚

Drama of last week’s accident from pulling out the car from garage in a quick got the side mirror broken – and first treatment – thanks to Amazon’s delivery – arrived. Now I need to do it again once the paint arrives


Market Adjustment?

New world – now people have to pay the ‘market adjustment’ to buy a car in few weeks.

Part of it makes sense – as used car values went up close to MSRP in some cases, new car should be more expensive than that, but I still miss the days when negotiation started down from MSRP. I originally made up my mind that I have to have a willingness to pay reasonable ‘adjustment’, however, $7k more than 10% was mind blowing.

Simple price research with some motivation end up being an opportunity to build more love with my old and rusty Odyssey ๐Ÿ™‚
