Question about 1992 Honda Accord

2 Answers

The "doors open" sign on dashboard keeps lighted on the whole time I am driving, although all doors are closed

The sign on dashboard either goes on immediately as I start the car or shortly afterwards (for ALL doors together), and stays-on all the time although all doors are closed. The local Honda people cleaned the "negative" ends of all electric wire contacts, and this helped a little for a short while (the sign did not go-on always, and sometimes dimmed after driving for a while). But then the problem returned after a few days. They suggested changing the COMPLETE DASHBOARD! Any simpler solution please!! Thanks, MR

SOURCE: 1999 honda accord dashboard indicator lights on all the time

One of the door light switches may be bad or not making proper contact. here is what you do close all doors and then open one at a time and manually press the switch in the door way all the way in and see which one takes the light out. Then by padding the surface where the switch make contact with door it will work. this can be done by using some heavy duty glue and a piece of plastic of some other type of material will be fine. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA.

BOOT OPEN but not open warning light on dashboard say this with red warning light

The sensor is located and probably built into the boot latch. The sensor is good because the light goes off if you close it slowly. the latch is just worn out with that particular part. Replace the latch. It is not hard to replace if you have a few hand tools.

How do I get my dome light to turn off if it stays on indefinitely after the doors are shut?

Hi, have you checked the switch at the dome light, the switch usually has 3 positions, 1 for off, 2 for on when a door is open and 3 for on all the time, just move the switch to the appropriate position.
Another thing to check is the door switches, located in the door frame where the door will close against them (usually covered by a rubber grommet in modern vehicles) open one door at a time and try pushing the switch making sure it moves freely in and out and check if the light goes out when pressed right in, if you find a faulty door switch it will need to be replaced.
Trust this helps

Toyota premio corona 1996 dash board gear shift light D (drive) is not working. All the other lights working

You have two choices: Either ignore the nonfunctional light or open up the dashboard and replace that bulb. You MIGHT be able to replace it from behind, but you MIGHT have to disassemble the whole dashboard to get to it.

If it were mine, I'd leave it like it is unless I had a lot of time on my hands.

The same goes for the "Econo" light.

Interior lights flicker on and off with warning that doors are open sign on dashboard comes on at same time

Open each door (one at a time) with the car running and parked.
Look for the small contact switch that tells the car the door is open/shut.
See image for location.
Press that switch in firmly and watch the dash to see if the light comes on while you are pressing.
This will tell you which one of the switches is bad.

My door ajar sign is on and the doors are closed

did you try spraying the door latch and locks with WD 40? I did on my ford expo. I sprayed each and every door, including the hatchback. Then, I opened and closed them several times. Found out the driver rear door was sticking due to dirt.

Open door light stays on on dashboard - ford puma

The contacts of the sensor to the Door can be dirty. Thus it can't sense the door properly and remarking open. Also there is a solenoid behind the Door which can be defective which can cause the problem. Kindly call a technician and check the parts.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

Sound like the door that gets used the most often has a bad door switch??? Check the switch on the driver door and all doors. It might be broken, are not making good contact with the door to hold the switch made, or pushing the button in properally.

Mine did this. I went around to each door and sprayed a liberal amount of WD-40 in the latch, then open and closed each door about five times. It hasn't done it since. I think the switch inside was not moving freely.
