Open door light is on and the door is closed
I just purchased a 2011 CR-V. I drove it yesterday for 50 miles. I went to get in it today and my "door is opened" light came on for the drivers door. I slam the door and it still doesn't go off. The car won't lock using the keyfob bcuz the car thinks the door is opened. The car will lock manually when I hold the handle. What could this be?
Try lubricating switch with wd 40. This sometimes fixes issues like this.
how do I find out which switch to lubricate
You have to reprogram the fob, to program you have to use your car key to 1,2 3 for 3 times but you do not start the car after 3 times you will get a sound system bip than you remove the key and press any batern on the fob try that I have done that before.
I had a similar problem with my 2010 CRV that I solved by replacing the latch mechanism in the door (rear hatch, instead), which at the dealership was over $100 but could probably be done much cheaper elsewhere. This also seems to have solved the issue I had with the alarm randomly going off, if anyone else had the same issues
