Default Battery drain 2005 Honda CRV SE fuse #9

I bought a brand new 2005 Honda CRV SE last year and am having a few
problems. After a few months, the dome light in the back turns on and
shows up on the dash like the door is open when it's not open or even
unlocked. I couldn't get the dome light to shut off no matter how hard
I shut the door. It would go on and off on it's own so I turned the
dome to the off position but the dash icon does not stay off. After
taking it to the dealer 3 times and being told it's all in my head and
they tell me they've adjusted the sensitivity to it, it goes on again
as soon as I am 10 miles from the dealership. Not a big deal but it
was a nuisance. Six months later I have a remote starter installed and
was very happy. Several months later my battery is dead if I don't
drive the car every 24 hours...something is draining the battery. I
buy a new battery. A few days later the new battery is dead. I take
it to my neighborhood mechanic, he didn't believe the back door light
story and blames it on my remote starter, they he realizes the back
door light is truly a problem. He disables the auto starter and
adjusts the back door sensitivity but can't fix the battery drain
problem and tells me to take it to the dealer. The dealer doesn't want
to honor the warranty because of the remote starter and thinks maybe it
caused the car to "go bad". I have had nothing but the runaround. The
fuse #9 shows up as causing the electrical drain on the battery. The
fuse is what the interior lights are connected to. What am I supposed
to do now? I need the car to run and I need the fuse to be
operational. AAA roadside assistance is now maxed out for the year
because of how many jump starts I've needed. The dealers treat me like
I'm a second class citizen and tell me I should have my "husband" talk
to them. Well, I don't have one of those and I didn't need a husband
when I bought the car and paid cash! My money was good enough then but
aparently not enough to get these jerks to fix my car. Does anyone
have any realistic options outside of me getting a mail order husband
to "rescue" me?

Honda's contact info is in your Owner's Manual. Dealer is a boob, you
need to go higher up the chain.

Not sure of your area, but around here (Baltimore, MD) there are many,
many Honda dealers. Look up dealers in your area with ratings and find
a better one. This one has to go.

Same experience here with 05 CRV. Adjusted the latch striker and made
sure rubber tip cover is way in the nipple. Otherwise, go to your
dealer and demand replacement of latch striker as warranty. Hope your
car does not pull to the right during driving. Good luck.
