Courtesy light trigger


If the interior lights won't come on with either door open, you might have a blown fuse or the overhead light may be switched off.
Parts book shows a door jamb switch for each door.

Interior lights won't come on


There should be a switch on the overhead light that you can switch from off to door to on. If in the off position it overrides the lights. In the door setting they will come on when the doors are open. The on position will stay on all of the time.

My interior overhead lights don't come on when i open the door to get in


Be sure to check the overhead light bulb? Also are there any other lights not working? You may need to check the fuse block if the bulb is OK...

No interior lights


There may be a dome light override switch that keeps the overhead light off when the doors are opened. Consult owners manual or see dealer.

The inside light doesn't shut off


Open one door at a time and press the door button-switch (in the door-frame, hinge side usually) to see if that switch will shut off the light. If you find one that does, either extend the button length slightly with hot glue or epoxy, or replace the switch. Make sure the light has not been turned on at the light or that the switch is bad.

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.
