Question about 2003 Honda CR-V
Trying to find out if my 2003 Honda CR-V has a bell or buzzer that sounds when you turn off car and forget to turn the lights off. My car does not do this and the battery has been run down twice now because the lights were inadvertently left on. Any help in trying to figure out why would be appreciated.
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.
Hope this is of some help.

Bikerbc - Excellent advice! You were spot on with my Honda CRV problem! My battery kept going dead because I would leave the lights on after driving to work through the dusk of morning. The door/lights chime had quit working and I thought it might be a fuse. I didn't think about the fact that the lights and door ajar are both on the same door switch. I checked the switch and found that it wasn't working properly so I pulled it and found that it had become unseated, fixed it, replaced it, and now I'm back in business! Before the internet and the sharing of information like this, it would have likely cost quite a bit to have a dealer or mechanic take care of minor problem. Thanks!
