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.

Why does the shift gear lock on park on a 2001 Honda Odyssey?

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!

Does automotive brake fluid wear out or break down?

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.
