    I bought a brand new 2005 Honda CRV SE last year and am having a few
    problems. After a few months, the dome light in the back turns on and
    shows up on the dash like the door is open when it's not open or even
    unlocked. I couldn't get the dome light to shut off no matter how hard
    I shut the door. It would go on and off on it's own so I turned the
    dome to the off position but the dash icon does not stay off. After
    taking it to the dealer 3 times and being told it's all in my head and
    they tell me they've adjusted the sensitivity to it, it goes on again
    as soon as I am 10 miles from the dealership. Not a big deal but it
    was a nuisance. Six months later I have a remote starter installed and
    was very happy. Several months later my battery is dead if I don't
    drive the car every 24 hours...something is draining the battery. I
    buy a new battery. A few days later the new battery is dead. I take
    it to my neighborhood mechanic, he didn't believe the back door light
    story and blames it on my remote starter, they he realizes the back
    door light is truly a problem. He disables the auto starter and
    adjusts the back door sensitivity but can't fix the battery drain
    problem and tells me to take it to the dealer. The dealer doesn't want
    to honor the warranty because of the remote starter and thinks maybe it
    caused the car to "go bad". I have had nothing but the runaround. The
    fuse #9 shows up as causing the electrical drain on the battery. The
    fuse is what the interior lights are connected to. What am I supposed
    to do now? I need the car to run and I need the fuse to be
    operational. AAA roadside assistance is now maxed out for the year
    because of how many jump starts I've needed. The dealers treat me like
    I'm a second class citizen and tell me I should have my "husband" talk
    to them. Well, I don't have one of those and I didn't need a husband
    when I bought the car and paid cash! My money was good enough then but
    aparently not enough to get these jerks to fix my car. Does anyone
    have any realistic options outside of me getting a mail order husband
    to "rescue" me?

    Honda's contact info is in your Owner's Manual. Dealer is a boob, you
    need to go higher up the chain.

    Not sure of your area, but around here (Baltimore, MD) there are many,
    many Honda dealers. Look up dealers in your area with ratings and find
    a better one. This one has to go.

    Same experience here with 05 CRV. Adjusted the latch striker and made
    sure rubber tip cover is way in the nipple. Otherwise, go to your
    dealer and demand replacement of latch striker as warranty. Hope your
    car does not pull to the right during driving. Good luck.
