Car Battery dying

Asked by May 09, 2019 at 11:04 AM about the 2002 Honda Odyssey

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I was recently rear ended in my 02 Honda
Odyssey and while my rear door closes
without any issue, the sensor light on my
dashboard won’t shut off because of the dent
and it’s draining my battery. Since the car is
old and the cosmetic damage is pretty minor,
I don’t want to pay to fix the dent but I don’t
want my battery to keep dying. Does anyone
have any type of solution for this? Is there a
fuse I could just remove that would
disengage this?

Thank you all in advance

Check the switch at the door to see if it's damaged or out of adjustment. Playing around with it, you might get it to work right. But it might be damaged from the hit. Then it's best to replace it. Or, you could remove it and splice the wires together so it will always appear shut to the car.
