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.

This is something you have to remove the door panel to before you can say what it is. But I don't advise a DIYer doing it because its a little tricky. I recommend taking it to a body shop . They do this stuff in their sleep let them deal with it. If you try it and mess up then you have no door lock. This is not a big repair.

Central locking not working

I am not sure what model Honda you have, but on both of the 1998 Honda Civic LX models I own , their locking/ unlocking problems were caused by a Power door lock control module, which is located in the drivers door, behind the inside door panel. There is a troubleshooting process you can go thru, by jumpering various wires to test each door, but if everything isn't working, and you have checked your fuse for the lock circuit, then the Power door lock control module is the most likely suspect.

Honda Accord LX 1996 Drivers Window Will Not Go Up

If you take the door panel off, you can unplug the window motor connector and apply power to the motor and run it up if the motor still works. Sometimes they do because it's a switch problem. At the very least, you can confirm the problem this way.
