I bought this car brand new and just this week have started having problems. When I turn a corner or hit bumps in the road my doors unlock, the dome light flickers and the driver side door light on the dash lights up. Once the road is smooth again all lights go off. Another strange thing is that my sun roof is in the tilt position and will not close. It doesn't even try to move or make any sound when I push the close button. Can all these things be connected in any way? Is something shorting out? What are the posibilities? Thanks!

Which model accord is it? I can post diagrams if you don't already have them.

Sounds like a bad connection or wiring problem by the sounds of it. You'll need to do some "wiggle" testing of the wiring.

The roof is probably a separate issue.

Hi Lelani,

Check for misalignment of the driver door. The door ajar switch is not closing well and movement of the driver door is activating the the meter indicator.
