I would like to just buy the switch itself without the wiring harness & fuse. The switch should be less than $10 if I could find it.

Let's look at the root of the problem. The OEM Battery is too small. Period. Mine went dead with the lights left on for 15-20 minutes while filling with fuel.

Forget about pulling fuses etc and just yank the group 51 battery out and replace it with a Group 24.
You can go to your Honda dealer and purchase the plastic battery tray (2 parts For a 2013 Honda Odessy 1ea. 31531-TK8-A00 & 1ea. 31521-TK8-A00) for under $20. Get a decent Group 24 AGM battery with at least 900+ CCA (OEM is 400) and you will have solved the problem.
The parts person at the dealer where I bought mine had the replacement part numbers off the top of his head. They sell a lot of them. And it does Not effect your warranty.

You can buy just the switch but than you'll also need a fuse holder wiring, and most likely some soldering.

Edit: I did not use screws to hold it in place. Since the plug itself is threaded, you can just twist the plug into the soft mating plastic. Takes a little more time but it was worth it to me.
THAT makes sense. Wish I had thought of that!

I see your point but as later said, you need more than the switch. IMHO, sometime re-inventing the wheel is not an effective use of time and money.

Dennis45...Thanks for the information. My OEM battery is 3 years old now and when I'm ready for a replacement, I'll take your suggestion into account.

That would not be a problem. I have been an electronics tech for 58 years! I'll make up the rest of it if I can find the switch.
