Question about 1997 Honda Prelude

Open Question

Remote central locking stopped working

Accidentally jammed a civic key in my prelude's ignition. Played around with it and finally got the civic key out. After that incident, the remote does not work anymore. It doesn't lock or unlock the car. Thought maybe i might have done something while trying to get the civic key out and stuffed up the locking system. if anyone knows how to fix it, pleas help. Thanks!

sounds like the drivers side key switch has failed remove the interior door panel and there will be a switch attached to the back of the key lock cylinder or around there it should be two or three wires also check the door jamb wire harness where the door closes for any broken or damaged wires, use a vot meter and see if you get power or ground to the opposite side of the switch when you use the key to lock and unlock the door if nothing changes and there is power or ground! at this switch i would replace it, i don't think there is one but if the car has a passenger side key hole try to unlock the car from that side and see if you get the same problem -jeff

I have the same problem. The battery in the remote was replaced, still cannot operate lock. I can operate the balance of the door locks from the inside, except for the drivers side. I manual have to push or pull the door lock.

Central Locking does not work


You must reset your remote control in order for the lock/unlock to work properly.

To reset remote you would:
1)Insert Key in Ignition Turn to Position 1(Don't Start the Engine) for about 5 seconds
2)Turn Key Off and HOLD the LOCK button on Remote while pressing the UNLOCK 3 TIMES
3)Release both lock and unlock buttons you are holding
4)All doors should automatically unlock

And exit the door and lock with the Remote.

Electric door lock switch stopped working


Does the central locking work when operated manually by the key or by the inside button? If it does not then the most likely culprit is a broken wire in the door jam.

Central locking not working with key. Can hear locking motors using remote but does not actuate door locks.


try to check your door lock/car alarm fuse if still good.
if it's still working you have to check the driver seat door if there was no parts of your power door broken.
