97 Honda Accord LX, Interior Light & Door Ajar Light
The other night while driving and when I stepped on the brake the interior light came on along with the driverís side door ajar light. When I released the brake & accelerated the lights went off? My car is a í97 Honda Accord LX. What is the problem?
Either your door was not shut tight or you have a problem with the door switch. If the problem should reoccur, try pulling in on the door a bit to see if it turns the light out. If it does, it is likely to just be a worn and tired door switch. The door switch is located at the bottom of the B-pillar/door post and is easily replaced.
