Q: How do the door-mounted courtesy lights work?

asked by on December 15, 2015

How do the door-mounted courtesy lights work?

The doors of your Accord are equipped with courtesy lights. They are designed to provide illumination to aid in getting into and out of the car in low-light situations. These lights are not adjustable. The light will turn on when the door is opened, and go off when it closes. The light around the ignition switch will also turn on when the door is opened, and remain on for about 30 seconds after you close the door.
