My remote will no longer open or lock my doors I have a 2002 Acura mdx I changed the batteries thinking that was probably the issue but still nothing.

The remote may have to be "re-trained" to your vehicle. The owner's manual should have the process listed. Probably having to sit in the driver's seat with the untrained remote while working the lock controls on the driver's side door.

I have a 2005 Acura MDX and the fuse for the power locks keeps blowing. It is located on the passengers side. Any thoughts as to why? It started happening after I got a tire repaired. I wonder if...

Tires and locks are unrelated. First I have the codes read for the BCM, then I would go for the drivers door. At the door jam in front, there is a boot that holds the wires. Check for broken wires here first. The go to the hatch and check for broken wires in the boot at the top. Codes will tell you which latch is bad. Go for them also.

I have an Acura MDX 2003 and can't disable the factory security alarm... I don't have a remote

If it's a cheap aftermarket alarm, check for a red wire coming off the hot side of your battery with an inline fuse. If it's not, try to locate the alarm "computer" under the driver's side dash or nearby your fuse panel. You'll find a black box with a wiring diagram glued to the side, normally strapped to a wiring harness or other fixed element. If this is the type of alarm you have, you'll need to trace each wire coming from the alarm computer and unclip each fastener that's clipped to your vehicle's factory wiring. The trouble with these types of alarms is that they can get power from a number of sources (stereo, interior lights, etc.). Good luck with this one!

I have a honda mdx and the tailgate door does not

Take off the trim panel and see if you can see the servo that controls the locks push rod. It may have been disconeted, or broken, the ends are usually made of plastic. Also you will be able to see if it is even actuating when you press the lock/ unlock. Good luck!

Door lock actuator, about $70 for the part at a Canadian dealership. I've had all except the driver door one fail now. Not impressed, Acura!
