Hello All,

I am a new member who recently purchased a 2019 Honda Accord 1.5L Sport. One of the more sensory appealing features was the HondaLink Display when the vehicle door was opened. The HondaLink Display on the large LCD Screen would initialize, along with a brief Audio Sequence (some type of digital tune). The smaller display above the steering wheel also initialized during this sequence. Notice how I refer to this is the past tense?

We returned to the local Honda “Service” Department to have a remote start key programmed and somehow during the process, the HondaLink Initial Display became disabled. To the best of our knowledge the initial Visual and Audible Display Sequence are all that was affected but; I’m not sure. We’ve returned to the so-called “Service” Department twice and been told that there is no such feature and we either imagined it or we are lying. At this point, all confidence has been lost in COMMONWEALTH HONDA in Lawrence, MA and we’re unsure if they may have compromised any other functions.

Has anyone on the Forum experienced a similar loss of this feature? Can anyone help by confirming its existence in their personal vehicle? If so, a video clip would be extremely helpful.

Thanks very much in advance,

StoneOLD

I have the "door open" display/warning displayed in the tach area (or as you call it the "smaller display above the steering wheel"). When you speak of the HondaLink Display on the large LCD screen are you referring to the infotainment center... if so I don't have anything showing there regarding the door being open.

Fired00d,

Thanks for the reply. Yes, the Infotainment Center originally illuminated, along with a digital tune that lasted about 5 seconds, whenever the drivers side door was opened. I’ve seen this type of ‘performance’ on other vehicle makes (GM cars for example) and assumed it was something of a standard feature. In any event, it looks like it’s gone and can’t be restored by the dealership. Hopefully, all problems will be this minor.

Thanks again,

StoneOLD

The only thing that has ever happened on my car when I open a door is the area where a tach would normally be displays the door that is open and it will make a noise if you put it in gear when one of the doors is open. The Infotainment system has never shown anything for me about doors.
