Question about 1998 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Door lock My key does not lock or open the driver's door. However, it will unlock the passenger's door and both rear doors when inserted in the passenger's door. I have to manually pull up the button on the driver's door to unlock it. The remotes also only lock 3 doors but not the driver's door. Thanks.

Opening the drivers door doesnt automatically open the passangers door


Some vehicle locking systems allow a single button press to unlock the driver's side door and require a second button press to unlock the passenger side door. Likewise, use of the key to unlock the driver's side door does not automatically unlock the passenger side.

Central locking


turn key twice when opening, ie turn right. once drivers door will unlock, turn twice passengers doors will unlock, and locking is turn anti clock wise once will lock all doors, turn twice will set door dead locks.dead locks will stop openand lock internal button working and handle from opening door. the same actions can be applied to the remote one press drivers door, two press passenger doors, press and hold unlock button for 5 seconds and rear window will open.

I can't unlock my 2003 kia rio with the key, and when I unlock it from the inside it relocks itself before I can open the door


Hello,
Just had the same problem and know it is fixed.
You may have worked out that you can use the fob to unlock and then immediately lift the passenger handle to get access- not ideal.
In my case I couldn't turn the key in the drivers door either
1, Remove the 25 AMP fuse for door locking from fuse box under the bonnet. This disables central locking. The passenger door opens fine. The key however won't turn in drivers door.
2, Spray WD40 or other moisture repellent protective lubricant on key. Insert into drivers lock- gently turn back and forth. Half remove key so you can spray more WD40 into lock- a good blast will do. Keep gently turning until you can lock and unlock.
3, Replace 25 amp fuse
4, Hopefully job done- worked for me

The remote to unlock the doors won't work. replaced battery. the key will not unlock driver or passenger door or the trunk


I hope you're able to get into your car because it sounds like the system needs to be reprogrammed.

1-insert and remove key from ignition two times

2-close and open driver door two times

3-insert and remove key once from ign.

4-close and open drvr door twice

5-insert key into ign.,then close driver door

6-turn key to on (not start) then off, twice this is rewrite mode,have all remotes to reprogram it will clear any lost remotes.

7-remove key from ignition,the door locks should cycle twice.if not start over.it may take a few tries.

8-press lock/unlock together and hold for a second

9-release,and press lock on remote,the door locks will cycle confirming program.continue to do other remotes you have,steps 8 and 9.if only one in possession,you are done. To end mode open door or insert key into ignition.

You'll need to follow the steps with no more than a 1-2 second delay between each step.. hope it works

Passenger door not opening with central locking


1st wind the glass down and turn the key in the driver door twice in clockwise direction to lock, at the sound of the second click try try opening the door thru the window (passenger) manually. you will need to pull the knob twice before it opens. you can get all the passenger doors open this way until you decide to change central lock system. To activate the remote; insert the key into driver door while pressing the lock or unlock button on the remote for at least five-ten seconds which should get it functioning normally again. hope this helps. it worked on mine.
