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

When driving, our interior lights that normally come on when the doors are open keep flickering on and off usually over uneven road. At the same time the warning sign comes on the dashboard saying that a door is open. They are not, all doors are shut firmly and have even been locked. Any ideas?

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.

It is likelythat one of the door switches are losing solid contact and will need replaced.

spray your door lock with dw40. sounds like the sensor in your door frame is not making correct contact. look on your door frame. all door frames. and see if you can spot any torn rubber or anything that could cause the sensor to not correctly close

Can you tape a coin or two onto the door at the spot that hits the light switch? If not, just remove the bulbs.

Interior lights generally work to an earth, sounds like you have a trapped wire that's shorting to earth, start with the wiring to the door switches and work your way to the light

Warning light does not go on when door is open and lights left on 2006 Honda CRV Thanks


Is the overhead interior light switch turned off with the effect that when the doors are opened the interior light doesn't come on. Alter the switch setting and open the door: if the interior light comes on then you should see the warning light come on if the vehicle lights are left on. Failing that it's likely to be a faulty doorswitch or the cable and connector to the doorswitch has become detached. Try unscrewing the doorswitch and withdrawing it from the vehicle body and check that the wire is still connected. Check using a multimeter that the switch operates electrically when open and closed. Replace or repair as appropriate.
