Here is a copy of a solution I offered to another person who had a similar problem with their head light alarm.
I cannot help you with the cruise control problem.
>>>I had a similar problem -- my interior lights would not come on when I opened my driver's door, plus I wouldn't get a warning if I left the key in the ignition or the headlights on.
There is a switch covered with rubber on the door post. I removed the switch, sprayed just a slight amount of contact cleaner, made sure the switch worked by grounding it to the frame and pressing the switch in & out a couple of times. Then I carefully replaced it.
I attributed the problem to my seat belt buckle hitting the switch as I closed the door without checking to see if the seat belt had retracted properly.

For a 2003 Honda CRV, disconnect the horn fuse (#7), located in the under hood fuse box. This will also kill the rear lights. My underhood fuse box did not match glvenu's pic above, didn't have the 2 fuses circled together. The #7 fuse in my CR-V is located below the single fuse circled in the pic above.
I believe the dim function uses a ballast resistor in the earth circuit, this would be bypassed when full power is needed that is why all 3 show power. Sorry I cannot help with the location, but if you price one up at a dealer they should tell you where it is, some Hondas have them on the front panel below the l/h lamp, under the bumper cover.
you have to go under the bumper and and look behind then look for the back of the lightbalb connection. if you see that. pull on it carefully. if rusted, spray some wd forty on it but make sure you dont get the wires with the wd forty
I'm not sure what your cruise control problem is but your alarm problem may be the dome light switch for the drivers door. The switch is used by the alarm to determinethat the door is open. Does the dome light come on bright when the door is opened? If not, try wiggling the switch (behind round rubber boot on the door post). If this works you can remove the switch by pulling up the rubber cover and unscrewing the bolt and carefully pulling the switch and wiring out. If wiggling the switch didn't work, you can check the wiring by grounding the wire to the switch, it should illuminate the dome switch brightly. If so, a new switch is about $10 at your dealer.
