Power door locks not working on 1998 honda accord lx

From the drivers seat the only windows that work correctly are on the drivers side, the other windows work from the location only and neither of the power door locks work.

    I have a similar problem with our 1998 Accord EX. I tried resetting the multiplex unit, but it didn't solve the problem.

    My problem is the driver side doors unlock, but not the passenger side doors. Is there different fuses for each side of the car?

I promise this works 'cause I used it:

Put the key in the ignition, move the intermittent wiper control to the middle possition and then turn the key on.

just to clarify it's the ring that controlls the intermittent wiper speed and not the int / low/ high switch.

What this does is it resets the multiplex unit that controlls the accessories such as the power door locks. This problem usually happens once the battery has been removed or disconnected and reconnected. Every once in a while the multiplex systems lock up. Especially on the 98s. That's how you wake em up.

    I had a problem with my windows once before and Honda was going to charge me over $100 to fix it, but one of their technicians printed out the fix and gave it to me. It worked for my door locks as well. I had not removed the battery or anything. They just quit working. Thanks so much.

    Maybe it worked. But after following the procedures and playing with power door lock switch several times, everything started working. Could be the relay contacts have arcing residue and playing with it several times clears it.

This is a known honda problem. You need to put the key in the ignition then turn the wiper adjust know halfway and back. this will get the locking system out of sleep mode and then try it.

You have 2 fuse boxes. One under the hood and one under the back seat on the drivers side. Both are well marked to find whatever fuse you are looking for.

Where is BCM located on a 2003 GMC Envoy

The BCM is located under the rear seat on driver's side next to fuse box.
Don't believe this is a BCM problem, it is more likely the Driver's Door Module itself. Try moving the passenger door module over to the driver's side and see if that works the windows.

Heated seats

if they were installed correctly the fuse should be in the fuse box (usually driver side under dash) marked seat heater or in an acc slot. also try looking under the seats to see if they are plugged in correctly.

I have a 1999 mountaineer and none of the power seats work. I have looked at the book and do not see a fuse for this. Am I missing it or is this not a fuse problem.

In the fuse box located on the drivers side of the dashboard, you want to check fuse 18 - it is a 25 amp fuse for running the power seats and also the auto-lock relays if I remember correctly.

Driver side door lock and window controls don't work, and the other window controls dont work, but the locks do work with remote and with button only on passenger and back seat, but no window controls work...

i would look at the wiring in the door shut on drivers side as wires tend to break in the rubber sleeve, if this is the case carry out repair and should solve your problem
