    I hit a deer in February and cracked my front bumper on my 2010 gen 3. My insurance covered a collision center in a Honda dealership, and they finally got me in this week. For some reason, probs more $$ for them, they elected to patch and repaint my bumper (which would've been about $850 out of pocket...) instead of just replacing it.

    It looks fine but now my open door and seatbelt alarms don't turn off when in park? I'm calling the dealership tomorrow but I'm really curious as to any possible reason for this.

    what else was damaged besides the bumper? maybe there is a seat belt sensor behind there.

    Sounds like your hatch isn’t closed all the way

    I was just going to say this.. I had this issue (Besides hitting a deer) and it was the back hatch that wasn't closed. Hopefully thats your issue too.
