Question about 1997 Honda Accord

Door locks keep locking

When I lock my doors with the key, the door locks keep "locking" sometimes for hours. This occasionally happens while driving. I suspect this may have contributed to the recent demise of my battery.

    I have a similar problem...I have replaced the door actuator and haven't noticed any improvement. My locks make a lot of noise, either locking or unlocking. Have had the problem for a long time. I guess I should just count my blessings and hope mine doesn't get as bad as yours...

    I also have problems with the driver's side window...I really think they're related.

You shouls have remote lock control located on the driver side by where the wire harness exits thru the fire wall. Usually that would be the cause; but first check the wire coming into the box there could be a short ( exposed wire touching ground) in one of the wires.

Hi does this happens when you use you remote to lock the door? Does this happens after you unlock the door? If I remember the lock button is on the door panel. I would just remove the switch just to see if the wires are plugged completely in to the switch, could have came loose. Please get back to me about the questions I asked.

Cheers

89 mercury grand marquis. Battery dead keys inside. What can I do. Help please


When that happens to me, I call the Auto Club. They have special tools that can reach inside to unlock the door even with a dead battery. You can also try a locksmith, they will be able to pick the door lock.
I locked the keys in the trunk, parked at the Devil's Postpile Monument outside Mammoth, California. It took the locksmith an hour to get to me, and 15 seconds for him to pick the lock.

1999 Audi A3 1.8T Electric Windows and Central Locking Won't work


will your passenger door open with the key and is it just one side that your windows are not working or both. if its just one side it might be your regulator motor in the door thats not working if its both it might be your central locking pump usually in the boot. however if both of them are working fine it could be that your key needs reprogrammed however i think the 1st 2 are more likely to be the problem.

Door locks not working properly


This can be caused by the actuators in the lock mechanism failing usually causing the door to remain locked. The boor door can also fail this way, though sometimes the catch sticks (pry off the LR badge, squirt with WD40 and work it a few times to fix that). Replacement requires the whole lock unit to be replaced at a cost of roughly £60 a lock, and a hours work. Helps if you have small hands. It does require a complete strip down of the door, and will need the lock unit, trim panel clips, and a trim removal tool. Clips are a few quid, the tool's usually around a tenner.

Central Locking


When you use your remote or insert your key in the Drivers Front door all the door locks should work at the same time by the door lock motors electrically. If you have to manually unlock the door because it will not lock or unlock by the lock motor, you need a door lock motor. The drivers and passengers front door can unlocked with the key manually. The rear doors you have to pull up the latch. If no doors unlock electrically with the remote or drivers door lock, intermittantly or all the time, you will need a Central Locking Electronic Control Module. You will hear the "beep" but no door locks will fire at all. If you have odd door locks not working intermittantly you need a new door lock motor for each door lock that malfunctions. You can hear of the door locks are working electrically. Yes, they are common problem. If you can hear the door lock working but the door still doesn't unlock you need to take the door panel off and lubricate the door latch assembly and work the lock, loosening it up. This is common as well.

1995 M series has auto door locks at ignition. passenger side has frozen. Will not open even trying to use key.


The door catch/lock mechanism on the MX5 is liable to do this occasionally - if you keep trying to unlock it, it will open eventually (I manually pop the internal lock whilst opening the outer handle if that makes sense).

Once it's open though, you pretty much need to open up that door and replace the lock mechanism.

Hope this helps,

All power door locks lock except the driver side front door


On my jetta, if you don't lock the doors with the remote then all doors lock except the drivers door. try this
1. closing all doors walk around to the passenger door.
2.open the door, using the button on the passenger door, lock the doors.

I had this happen to me on my jetta and found you could lock all the doors if you did'nt use the drivers door or you locked using the remote. They did this to keep the driver from locking the keys in the car. I hope this worked for you

My Honda CR-V EX 2005 doors lock by themselves. Occasionally, after you unlock it with the remote key, it locks itself before you can get in. It also happens sometimes when I unlock the car, then open the...


They all do it, its part of the security system that all the doors lock after a minute or so from unlocking if you don't open the driver's door.
It prevents you from accidentally unlocking the car door while walking away and clicking the remote in your pocket, the car re-locks on its own.
If you open with the remote then open only the rear door, the other doors all lock and when you close the rear the alarm goes off.
What fun we have!

2004 Civic Drivers door lock


The driver's side door lock button is designed not to lock from the inside unless the handle is pulled, or the power switch is used. This serves as a reminder to not lock your keys inside.

If you are inside, and push down on the button (not the switch) hard enough to lock it, you've probably damaged it.
