Honda Odyssey Alternator and Transmission Problems

Asked by Aug 21, 2017 at 04:48 PM about the 2006 Honda Odyssey EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We have a 2006 Honda Odyssey with 174k miles on it. On Thursday night, the
dash lit up with the battery, signaling that the battery wasn't being charged. We
got it to the service repair shop within a few miles, and they replaced the
alternator. We got it back the next day, and drove about 25 miles, parked for a
few hours, and then began to drive home. At the first stop light, the car was in
Drive, but when we accelerated, it acted as if it was in Neutral. All of the gears
were the same. We turned it off, then back on again, and it drove for a few
minutes before again shifting into Neutral. We had it towed back to the original
service repair shop, thinking it had something to do with the repair we had just
had that day on the alternator. Now they are telling us we need to replace the
transmission. Could this be caused by the alternator/repair, or is it coincidental
that both the alternator and transmission went out within 24 hours of each
other?

You more than likely have a transmission issue You have one of the models that had plastic parts in the transmission that wears out. Some of these have gone out at 60K miles. I have read where some people have put 3 transmissions in within the same miles you have. There is a kit that replaces these plastic parts with metal. I believe the year range of these is from 2002 - 2011.
