So, basically can be a dumb question, with my parking lots on/headlights on, my maintenance required light in the dash used to be green, now its orange/amber. Does this mean maintenance is required? Or am I just tweakin out a little bit about something small?

About 117k on the clock

Re: 97 SH

The maintenice thing will change every time you hit a certain mileage. Just stick your key in that little slot and it'll go back to green. As for your parking lights, what are you asking about them? As for your rear seats, this is a common thing. Also, check your spare tire area, cause I bet water is sitting in there.

There are 2 black plugs you push out and you won't have water settling in your trunk anymore. Also, there are some tubes that go to your sunroof that are possibly clogged up and need to be cleaned

Re: 97 SH

i had a problem with my accord driver door not unlocking, it was not alot of fun fixing that. The actual door latch that is mounted on the inside of the door was broken. That sounds like that could possibly be your problem with your passeger side door, mine did it out of nowhere. I had to take out the seat (the one on the side that the door wouldn't open) so I could remove the door panel so I could get to the door latch, which is still pretty tight. I hope thats not your problem but if it is just take your time and good luck

Re: 97 SH

ya currently i have it so i can take the door handle panel off, i try to work the latch but something is stopping it from unlocking the lock. Until it gets warmer out, one of my buddies dads said the doorpanel will have to be taken off if it doesnt unlock. He is a mechanic and he knows hondas. My uncle thinks it could be a master lock cylinder going bad. He also knows cars pretty well.
