2009 Honda Fit Sport: Back on the Road
July 28, 2009
We reported a problem with door-ajar warning light on our 2009 Honda Fit Sport awhile back. No matter how hard (or softly) we closed each door the light wouldn't turn off. And since one door registered open at all times, the remote lock wouldn't work either.
Our advisor at Honda of Santa Monica nodded as we described the issue, "We are familiar with this complaint." We left the car. And an hour later the phone rang. We found Waldo, our advisor, at the other end of the line. He explained, "We performed a dome light circuit test and found the right front door switch to be broken. The switch assembly will have to be ordered. But I expect to have it back together by tomorrow." This was yesterday.
This morning we got the call. Our Fit was ready for pick up. So now we're back on the road.
