2005–2006 Honda Odyssey EX Power Sliding Door Won’t Open with VSA Indicator On

NOTE: This article applies to ’05–06 Odyssey EXs, EX-Ls, and Touring models. Working on a vehicle that’s in your shop because the power sliding door won’t work while the VSA indicator is on? Keep this in mind: You’ve got to troubleshoot and fix the VSA problem first; the power sliding door might not even be the problem. Here’s why. When you turn the ignition switch to ON (II) and press and release the bottom of the power sliding door switch with the main switch on, the power sliding door control unit requests wheel speed info from the VSA control unit and vehicle speed info from the PCM. This info gets transmitted through F-CAN between the VSA control unit, the PCM, and the gauge control module. The gauge control module then translates this info to B-CAN and sends it to the power sliding door control unit. If the vehicle speed info isn’t available, the control unit blocks the open command and keeps the door from opening.
