ok well i went to open my car today and noticed that when u hit unlock once the drivers door unlocks but the interior light doesnt come on. (yes is in the right position) and i hit it again to unlock the pass door and it doesnt unlock it. i have to hit it like 5 times and hold it for it to open.

but the interior light should come one the first time i press unlock for the drivers door wtf??? anyone have this prob?


i know there is a tsb about the pass lock but idk

Well if your talking about the interior light, then it should light up when you unlock it, if your talking about the map lights, there is a switch by the sunroof that you will need to activate in order for the map lights to turn on.

are you talking about the rpm gauge and speedometer? cuz both of those light up when i unlock, but not the lights that you "push" to turn on.

Is there any solution to this problem? My civic is on the 4th year and started the exact same issue this weekend. The remote unlock operation is only opening the driver door every time you hit the unlock button. Exterior lights light up as usual with every button press. I have noticed Honda electronics to be susceptible to high external humidity. It has been raining heavily since last couple of days with humidity above 90% constantly. May be that is the reason for this weird behavior. I guess cheap electronics are put into cheaper models.
