Hi, the back up light circuit may or may not be related. They will only come on with the key just like the gauges, windows and sun roof. However the door locks concern me. You electrical system has basically three "spines" if you will. One that powers up things all the time like the door locks, clock module, some radio functions, and some lights. Then there is a circuit that only comes on with the key, most of your failures are there. And then one that activates only in the "Start" position, like the starter, bulb and gauge check, etc. So either you have 2 circuits effected , which may indicate a fuse box failure, or you have a grounding issue, which could be anywhere in the vehicle, but may also be near the fuse box. A good first step would be to get a circuit diagram and a Power probe and start doing a trace. Were you planning on doing this yourself?

What Customers are Saying:

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

FredUSA

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
