sounds like a loose/bad wire or a defective actuator, the actuator is inside the door panel so you need to check and make sure you're getting power to it, if so then you know it's bad, probably a dealer part but should not be too expensive.

I assume you mean that the central locking system will not lock the doors but you can do so manually.

Get inside the vehicle and close all doors.

On each rear door, lock and unlock the mechanism manually a couple of times. In other words do not use the key pad.

Then leave both rear doors in the locked position (manual locking) and operate the lock button on you key pad to operate the central locking system. Wait a few seconds then hit unlock on your key pad and a few seconds later hit lock on your key pad.

If the system fails to lock your rear doors you will need to get the vehicle to an auto electrician to check out the issue and rectify it for you. There are a number of possible causes which cannot be identified without physically checking the system. So you will need to have this rectified by a professional.

Automatic door locks will not lock rear doors, they open fine when manually locked but will not lock with switch key fob or when put in gear.

Alarm system keeps going off on 1991 Acura Legend. Disabled horn to keep from bother neighbors all night, but lights flash and drain battery. How do I diable the alarm system. Car repair guy says he...


I had same problem, when a door lock broke, the car thinks it has been broken into once the alarm goes off. Mine started going off randomly when this lock broke. You have to reset the alarm system, with my 1990 Acura it was reset finally by putting key in door lock and turning key back and forth 3X. In my car, it was OK to do the key in door lock cycle in the passenger side door lock, but Acura dealer told me not all Acuras will reset it via passenger side key cycling, some require driver door lock key cycling only. I was lucky since my driver side door lock was currently useless, that my car allowed it to be done by key cycle on pass. door lock. But try that and if it doesn't fix it, just call acura dealerships until someone tells you the right answer. In my situation it took 3 dealerships with 3 different answers until this was the right one for my 1990 Legend.

PS I was told you can't disable alarm since it is all integrated into the battery and starting system, but read on another post that someone disableld theirs by disconnecting the horn.
