    OMG if that works I will call my self stupid LOL!! I had my window open but my car door was locked, so when I went to get back in the car I stuck my hand in the window and unlocked the door. As soon as I opened the door is when it stared happening. Even this morning I went out to the car to check on it and it still happened. SO I left it parked at home. I will try it when I get home. I hope this simple thing works. LOL! Thanks

    Ok I am REALLY STUPID!! It worked. I did just like you said and the damn lights quit flashing. LOL my husband said he already tried to do it but he didn't turn it side to side. We had a laugh because we feel so dumb!! LOL We were going to take it back to the dealer to have them look at it. You saved us some money, thanks!!!!! :)

Sounds like the regulator broke. The door panel will need to be removed. Once it is off you will have a better idea of what broke.

Acura rsx trunk latch stuck & won't open


I"m having trouble with locking and unlocking my hatch using my remote. I have flipped the white switch in the trunk and it acts as a child safety lock if flipped one direction. However I am not able to open the trunk this way. It acts as a permanent lock. So I figure the switch must be flipped the other direction and need to replace my actuator. Is this hard to do. It looks to me like it two switches holding a bracket to hold the actuator itself after plugging in the actuator from both sides. Is it really this simple?? Is there more to it???

Doors will not lock


replace the actuator. wouldnt recommend doing this yourself as it requires you to tear apart the door. the dealership will do it for around 150

Acura rsx trunk latch stuck & won't open


could be the spring release in the lever on the trunk itself. If you can hear the acuator locking/unlocking(that is all it's ment to do) then the spring release is the problem. you need to unbolt the latch from inside the trunk and once the trunk is open you can trace from there. I had the same problem due to a minor fender bender and I just fixed mine last week.

Regarding the heating issue, sounds like your thermostat is stuck open so the coolant isn't heating up. (May need replacement) Does your engine temp guage show it running colder than normal?
