The push button to open the door does not engage door, so door does not open

in most cases this is due to a snapped of push bar as they are made of plastic its a common fault. if the push bar is not snapped then its lost a plug that holds it in. as the microwave holds a constant 1000 watts of power i always recommend to people to have them fixed by lic techs the repair cost for this fault is around $ 100 if the part is still available

hop this helps please rank advice below

My lift gate says that its open when its closed and my interior lights will not turn off

there is a push button switch in the door jamb for the lift gate. look closely and you will find it. when the door is shut the button is pushed and the interior lights and open door warning go off. it is broken and you need a new one. this will be a dealer item and it snaps or screws in. when you get the new switch you may want to pay someone with mechanical aptitude to replace it.

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:

Check the door switch in the upper right of the door frame. Ours snapped off so the door wasn't contacting the switch anymore.
