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 ...you'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.

I had the exact same problem! On the third battery and the third time in our local Chevrolet Garage...they told me they couldn’t find any problems. My response was, “this vehicle isn’t dependable and it’s staying here until you fix it.” Well what do you know about a week later and a $100 deductable on my GMPP warranty they found the problem. It was an accumulation of three issues but mainly one.
1. The LoJack system that a different Chevrolet Dealership installed was drawing a constant 20mA when the vehicle was off. Within LoJack specs. Normal.
2. The Prodigy trailer brake controller was drawing 15mA. Within specs. Normal.
3. And the MAIN CAUSE of the whole problem was the HVAC controller never turned off. It was continually drawing 35mA until they pulled the fuse. They had to order another HVAC controller which would have cost $287 and a weeks’ worth of shop hours to investigate the problem. Thank GOD they only charged me the deductible on my warranty.

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.
