The red button you are describing turns off the interior motion detector when you arm your anti-theft system. For example if you were to leave a pet in the car, it would turn off the interior motion detector. I don't recommend that you leave a pet in the car in hot weather or cold. But that is the function of that button. Also if you were to stay in the car and arm the anti-theft alarm it would keep you from setting off the detector that monitors motion inside the car. I don't know why you would want to arm the anti-theft alarm when you are inside the car, but you could if you wanted to. The next time you lock or unlock the car the interior motion detector will automatically be reactivated. Each time I use the remote to lock all the doors the alarm system is activated. I am not an expert, I have only had my 1998 Audi a4 2.8 for a week, so I am just learning about the car. Hope this helps. Vidar

The buttom is for your alarm. It make it less thoucy. Just say u left your dog in the car and didnt want it to go off by the motion, All you have to do is press it in one time and get out and lock it. Once you ulock it to get back in, it will go back to normal.

The middle light on my ceiling inside the car will not turn off


there is no manual switch for this light, aside from removing the bulb.

if the light is staying illuminated, you likely have a problem with one of your door switches. are you experiencing any warning chimes like an open door? if so, look towards the drivers door. if not, look towards the passenger side. good luck!

Driver side door lock won't open or lock using remote.


if it moves even a little bit when the button is pushed it wont be a fuse issue, you more than likely have a weak door lock actuator

Exterior rear door handle on Honda Accord 2001


To Remove Door Panel on 2001 Honda Accord:

A: To remove the plastic piece with the door lock button and door handle connected to it:

1- Remove the screw in the middle located behind a plastic cover button
2- Push (slide) the whole assembly Forward (toward front of car)
Besides the screw, it is held in place by 3 hooks on the backside that hook into holes in the metal door frame
3- Now unhook handle from small metal bar going through door by pushing (toward door) plastic clip (blue?) off of the bar, then the bar will come out of the clip hole, thus releasing the handle.
4- Depress little grey button /bar (purple painted on it)on elec. connector to seperate connector, thus releasing door lock switch

Now the whole assembly (metal handle, door lock switch, and plastic piece) will come off door panel

B: The door is held on by 2-screws, 7-plastic snaps/plugs, and 1-plastic plug.

The screws are located: bottom of hand hold and the other behind the handle, both covered by little covers that have to be pryed off to access the screws.(hint: the screw with the built in spacer goes behind the handle when you are trying to reinstall)
The 7-plastic snaps: 3 across bottom and 2 on each side. Not visible, they are mounted to the inside of the panel.
The 1-plastic plug is visible at the upper front of the panel and is the same color as the surrounding trim


C: Take off the big plastic triangle piece above the door panel and behind the mirror. Pull/pry off. It has 2 snaps holding it on. one near bottom and one near the front.

D: Light lens prys off from bottom. Unscrew (1/4 turn) the light assembly with bulb still intact from backside of panel

E: Remove the Hand-Hold/window switch assembly:
