Ok... tip... kinda like the door lock override hint (over in the "Under the Hood" section)

Interior overhead light... you may notice that at times the interior light doesn't come on when you turn off the car... irritating becuase you're trying to find your stuff and trying to get out and etc etc etc

Honda does this on purpose. The reason the light does not come on is that the key is still in the ignition... they designed it so the light wouldn't come on as soon you killed the car and opened a door.... which at nighttime could dazzle your vision and make it harder for you to see in the dark after the light went out (e.g. ruin your night vision)

If you want the light to come on... when you turn the keys off.. pull them out of the ignition and the dome light will automatically illuminate ~ and then will slowly dim to off after you shut the doors
