i have a 2004 honda accord ex. my interior lights do not come

Resolved Question:

i have a 2004 honda accord ex. my interior lights do not come on anymore when i open the front doors. the lights work - it's not the bulbs, but they don't automatically come on when you open the doors. also, when i stop the car, turn off the engine and remove the key, i no longer get the dinging sound alerting me that my headlights are still on (if they are on). any ideas?

Hello. Have you checked all your fuses under the dash and under the hood?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
no. would a bad fuse also affect the headlight alert dinging?

Does your seatbelt reminder work?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
i don;t know; i always put my seatbelt on. do you mean the indicator light or the audible alert?
Expert:  thebesthonda replied 7 years ago.
The audible alert.

yes
Expert:  thebesthonda replied 7 years ago.

Ok. Some of these things you mentioned are controlled by the Multiplex Control Unit, so we need to check the fuses that power it.

 

Fuse # XXXXX and 7 in the under dash fuse box

 

Fuse # XXXXX in the underhood fuse box

 

Check these out and let me know.

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
great, thanks. can you please tell me where the fuse boxes are located under the hood and under the dash?
Expert:  thebesthonda replied 7 years ago.

Sure, no problem. I can do even better, here are some pictures for reference.
