All the interior lights just started flashing while I was driving, any idea what this is?

Asked by Sep 02, 2014 at 08:06 PM about the 2003 Honda Pilot EX-L AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The hatch light just came on showing that the hatch isn't closed, however, it is closed.
Then all of the interior lights came on and started to flash on and off as I was driving. At
first I thought it was in time with the indicator light when I put my indicators on to turn, but
that wasn't it. They'll stay on once I've turned the car off and have it in park for up to 10
minutes. Does anyone have any idea what this is? My car has 350,000 KM.

It could be a number of things. Go to your nearest Auto Zone and have the guy run your error codes from the car computer on his OBD reader. It may be something as simple as a relay switch.

I know because it happened to me after I jump-started my dead battery......security system thought my car was being stolen...I had to jhold down both buttons on my key fob to disarm.

Could also be that one of your doors is not reading closed - like your hatch was showing - the frame might have been dented - with my driver door the seat belt buckle had been slammed in the door - it it is your hatch that showed I would start there - look for an indention - you could start checking there - look for the indicator button - on the front door - I duct taped a penny there to raise the frame up enough to allow the post to meet the frame and it then reads that it is closed - as we were driving the lights would come on as the door jostled
