Brake fluid in ANY vehicle should be flushed every two to three years depending on vehicle usage. Be sure to use the appropriate brake fluid for your Honda (don't just buy any brake fluid off the shelf.) I always flush my fluid when I replace the front disk pads. If your brake fluid is a very dark brown or worse, milky, change it immediately.
where is the brake fluid on a Honda odyssey van
For the 2007 Honda Odyssey it is located under dashboard between the steering column and the brake pedal.
To fill the brake fluid in a 2001 Honda Odyssey, you need to find the brake fluid reservoir and remove the cap. Fill the reservoir with the right amount of fluid and put the cap back on.
In the fuse box under the hood
Original equipment part for brake light replacement on 2000 Honda Odyssey EX is: 7443 W21/5W STANLEY 12V 03U E4 2DW
you can use dot 1 fluid.
above disc brake, above frame rail
Assuming you mean brake lights, the brake light switch is broken or out of adjustment.
Bad or misadjusted stop light switch
It is below driver side dashboard e.g. middle of brake and gas paddle.
2 things could be the problem. If the "Brake" light is on that usually comes on when you set the parking brake then it could be the brake fluid is low. Check that. If it is the "Brake Lamp" light then check your brake lights. 1 of them could be out.
this could be the cause of low brake fluid or that your foot is on the brake and it is indicating that the ABS is working.
The brake fluid master cylinder resivoir is located on the drivers side next to the firewall. Look at it and you can see the level.

Brake fluid does collect moisture. If you've never changed the brake fluid in your system, it probably has moisture in it and yes, it can rust the lines from the inside out.
Look on the left side of the drivers footwell. It is near the emergenct brake pedal on the side of the footwell.
Normally it is clear. If it is any other color it needs to be replaced as it is contaminated with moisture or rust.
the average boiling point of the brake fluid has dropped to a potentially dangerous level because of moisture contamination and may not meet minimum federal requirements for brake fluid.
You can find good information on Honday Odyssey maintenance in the OdyClub forum at http://www.odyclub.com/forums/showthread.php?threadid=31713 There is a good description with pictures of how to change rear brake pads on the 2001 Odyssey. Good luck! SP
It has probably rusted inside from moisture contamination. Do you change your brake fluid at least every 50,000 miles? Brake fluid attracts moisture and moisture destroys calibers. Replace the caliber and change your brake fluid.
There is still air in the system.
how do i wire my brake lights on my Honda 1000
Brake light on 1994 Honda civic staying on.
I recently had the same problem on my 2001 Honda Odyssey and found that there is a little switch called the "brake pedal position" switch which not only turns on your brake lights when you are braking, but also allows you to switch out of park when depressing the brake pedal (due to the child safety feature). It is a siple part that can be switched out within 10 minutes (or less) if you have a single wrench of the correct size. The "Haynes Repair Manual" for the 1999 to 2004 Odyssey contains the information to change it in section 9-14 in the "brakes" section. Good luck!
The brake fluid absorbs moisture (Water) and it allows the internal parts of the system to rust. However as the brake fluid absorbs the moisture it also degrade itself and leads to faulty braking ability. Brake fluid should be changed and the system totally bled every 2-3 years depending on the stress put on the system.
