I did a little search but I couldn't find anyone as clumsy as me...
I was working on rerouting my driver side door courtesy lights when I shorted the contacts for the lights. I was dumb and forgot the wires were hot and tried to use pilers to take the contacts out of the socket and inadvertently shorted it (for a few good seconds, then again and again.) However, all the controls on the driver side door (power windows, power locks, power mirrors) work.
Not only does the driver side door courtesy light fail to turn on, when I open the door, the car does not recognize the door is open (the interior lights won't brighten when the door is ajar, and if I use the key fob to open the door, the doors auto-lock in 30 seconds). Funny thing is, all 3 of the other doors are recognized as ajar when opened.
What do I do? Fuse #6 (For interior lights) in the interior fuse box is intact. I think I may have burnt some wires in the driver side door =(...
Edit: I'm thinking it may have shorted the door switch in the process. Is this possible?

There is a good chance you burned out the door Jam switch not too expensive of a fix ( $5 or so ) I think it may have the pin style some cars do have a mercury or motion activated switch on inside of door ...I would think those would be more expensive and a bigger pain in the A** to get to.

I took my car to the Honda dealership to get it check out and yes indeed, it is the multiplex control unit (MICU) that has been fried. Honda tech asked for $400 to get it replaced, but I'll probably have to shop around and replace it myself...
