Check the dash light dimmer switch. Perhaps it's set to have the interior lights on, when you turn the dash lights all the way bright, turning it a little more turns the interior lights on. Let us know how you make out.

Next to the headlight switch is a dimmer dial for the interior dash lights... if you turn it all the way up, the interior lights remain on... there is a "detent" on the dimmer. turn the interior dash lights all the way full on'll feel the detent, then turn it down back past the detent a little bit...that should cancel the interior courtesy lights... wait a bit because the interior lights are sometimes on delay timers....
good luck let me know what happens.

You will have to pry off the lens CAREFULLY using a small screwdriver. There are two (or more) little plastic protrusions on each long side of the lens which fit into the casement. Look for very small slots along the side of the lens to insert the blade of the screwdriver. You can ease the casement away from the lens enough to get it to pop out. Re-inserting it is the same, but probably easier.
Gently, give it a try.
Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: 1998 Honda Accord EX V6 2 Door - Radio Error Code on Display

No-one is ever particularly happy to here this, but this is the way it is; we do have to keep in mind that the original idea of codes on radios was to prevent people who steal them from being able to use them.

So, if an audio unit with theft protection is disconnected from electrical power, you must enter a unique code number into the unit or it will not work. This code and the audio unit’s serial number are listed on the anti-theft ID card that comes with the vehicle. If this card is lost, you must obtain the audio unit serial number in order to get the radio code (some people say that they have found the code on a sticker inside the glove compartment, but I wouldn’t count on that). Some newer vehicles allow you to retrieve the audio unit serial number electronically from the radio. Refer to your owner’s manual for the specific procedure (the following usually will work: Turn the radio off. Push the preset 1, preset 6, and power buttons at the same time, then quickly release. The serial number will come up in two sets of numbers.)
Some older vehicles (model year 2003 and older) require a visit to the dealer in order to retrieve the audio unit serial number (or you can remove the unit and get the serial number from the back of the radio). Once you have the audio unit serial number, you can call Auto Customer Service at (800) 999-1009 or have the dealer look up the radio code.

Here is the URL for the Honda Owner page. If you register (no charge) you are able to get radio codes using the VIN number of your car, the serial number of your radio, and the
Phone Number and Zip Code that you give them when you register.

Hope this helps you with the process.

1993 regal custom new battery installed 3 weeks ago or so car sat for 2 weeks now car is dead had charging system checked with new battery all ok

You have something draining your battery when the vehicle is off. Connect an ammeter to see what amperage is drawn when the vehicle is at rest and off (with the doors closed so that you don't read the draew from the dome/courtesy lights). Begin pulling and replacing fuses one at a time to determine which circuit is causing the abnormal current flow then troubleshoot that circuit. Many times the fault can be traced to a glove box, trunk or underhood light that does not shut off.

How to remove the whole head lamp from honda pilot

The Honda Pilot is a mid-d sport utility vehicle introduced in 2003. The 2005 modelcame in three different types: the LX, EX and EX-L. In the center of theinterior roof is a dome light, or map light. All you need is a screwdriver to complete the job. Once removed, you can add new electronics to the Pilot'sroof.

1. Turn off the dome light and the car's engine. 2. Insert a flat headscrewdriver into the edge of the map light plastic cover. 3. Pry the cover off until itpops out of place. 4. Locate the two screws on theinside of the light mount and remove them with the screwdriver. 5. Remove the plastic domelight fixture to access the connector attached to the bulb. 6. Detach the connector fromthe dome light bulb. The dome light fixture can now be removed.
Hope this is what you are searching..

Please help dome lite will not go off battery goes dead!!! Anyone know how to fix this roblem

Check the plastic dome light switch which is located inside the driver door frame near the front of the vehicle. There should be a plastic buttom which gets depressed when the door goes shut, thus turning off the dome light. Sometimes, these buttons can get broken or damaged for numerous reasons and stick in, hence permanent dome light.
