I’ve been having a strange problem which developed in my 2018 Honda Accord Touring 1.5L 47k miles a few weeks ago. I noticed that whenever I get in the car, none of the interior lights (door, maps, rear seat, trunk) illuminate and it’s pitch black. They should illuminate as soon as the car is unlocked or when you open the door but they do not. When I start the vehicle, they briefly flash on and then immediately go off so I know it isn’t a fuse. Also, sometimes, most of the interior dashboard or console lights don’t come on either including the transmission position, window buttons, lock buttons, heating and air-conditioning controls etc. The infotainment and speedometer work but other “auxiliary” functions do not. This seems to be hit and miss. Most of the times they aluminate but sometimes they don’t come on at all. Also, I have noticed that my headlights are now malfunctioning when I exit the vehicle. The headlights shut off after a few seconds while the fog lights remain on for the full 60 seconds as they should. Instead, both should remain on for the duration. I have tried disconnecting the battery for a couple minutes and reconnecting with no change. Again, the problem seems sporadic and occasionally works but seems totally random and puzzling. I’m assuming there is some sort of computer logic which needs to be reset or perhaps the sunlight sensor is broken but I doubt it because it does automatically turn my headlights on when I enter a tunnel or drive in sunset. Any thoughts?
