Question about 1997 Honda Accord

Break-in Damaged Driver Door Automatic Lock Assembly or Actuator

1997 Honda Accord 4DR EX 2.2L SOHC 4-Cyl 16-Valve Engine

Hello. I am a female who has never worked on a car, but my son's car was broken into and I want to see if I can fix the problem without having to spend too much.

The burglar got the window down a tiny bit and then pulled it out towards himself enough to reach in to unlock the door.

Obviously it broke something inside because the door will no longer lock or unlock with the key. The door can be locked and unlocked by using the front passenger side control, or by holding out the outside handle and manually pushing down the lock before closing the door.

Once I got the inner panel off I was able to find a loose rod. I have been able to identify the plastic unit the rod is attached to at its bottom end as the door lock actuator. The top end was loose, which I assume is the problem. There is a white plastic mechanism mounted on the inside of the key lock area that is obviously what it was supposed to be attached to. I can see where the plastic broke off. The problem is that I can't seem to identify this part or find a replacement, and if I did I'm not certain how the rod attached to it.

The closest I have come to a possible identification has been the term "power lock assembly" but when I try to find photos of one of these I am uncusseful and I can't find them for sale. I have taken good photos of the broken piece that I would love to send to someone who can help me identify the item and give me some advice. Thank you, Monique.

92 Honda Accord EX Wagon doors not locking

If it was the actuator in the drivers door the other doors would still lock. this sounds like a bad connection, test the drivers door switch, the other thing is do the doors lock if you use the pass/door switch to lock the doors? if it doesnt then its not the switch but if it does lock the doors then replace driver door lock switch. if the switch on pass door doesnt work to lock then check wiring. look at wiring going into driver door, look at the door, open it, look at door hinge area and in the middle you will see the rubber boot that holds the wiring for that door. remove the boot or rather slide it back and check for any broken wires. its common for wires to break from opening and closing the door. good day.

I have 97 honda accord 4 door. electric locks

Sounds like a sticking switch ( actuator ) in the door.
Pull off the door panel and , looking inside the door, follow the rod from the key to the actuator .
Clean the actuator and make sure it works freely before re assembly.

Honda accord 1999 automatic

Do you mean the automatic door lock won't lock or unlock? If so, you need an actuator replacement.
