Default 91 accord lx, door/trunk open warning lights

Have a 2 door LX, and all 3 dash lights indicate the doors/trunk are open - regardless if doors are open/closed.

Is there something unique to the circuitry that would cause this?? No way all 3 switches freaked out at exactly the same time.

Thanks

Have you tried jogging the 'test' button?

I don't believe I'm familiar with the "test" button. What/where is that??

I'm not sure what hondadude meant either.

Do the courtesy lights in the doors and in the trunk turn on and off when the door/trunk is open and closed?

no...they stay on all the time as long as the car is running. Doors/trunk open/closed...makes no difference.

Whenever strange lighting issues pop up, I would start looking for a bad, loose, or corroded grounds. I would remove the ground bolt, use some sand paper to clean the connection and the bolt/washer, then tighten back down.

The spooner link I posted in the online manuals thread in the DIY section has a 93 shop manual that is for UK cars. It should give you a general idea of where the grounds are located. It may or may not be identical to the US accord. I would think that the ones in the cabin under the dash and in the trunk would be possible culprits.

It is possible that a wire is grounded somewhere near the gauge assembly that would cause this to happen too.
