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

Why does rear passenger side door of 2000 Toyota Avalon occasionally not lock securely in freezing weather?


The actuator/latch is bad. Basically a spring in it is not tight enough to close it.

In hot weather, my door locks do not work with the key fob or by pushing the driver door lock for all doors. I have to lock and unlock each door manually.


If this happening with all the doors when it happens, I would suspect the lock relays are getting old and tired. Replace the power lock relay or relays.

Ssangyong car locking doors


Its probably not a fault, the security system may be set to do this. Or if it only happens occasionally, someone else has a fob that is doing this accidentally.
Ask the dealer how you disable this behaviour. No one would want to steal a Musso, not ever. So you could leave it unlocked when it is empty.

run a status check on the pcm. sometimes those probs are in the computer. the loghts will come on when the remote is activated, and the door locks should lock automatically when you start to drive. if that doesn'tr happen, suspect a computer glitch.

Ford falcon locks


Dude, the same thing happened with my EL falcon. It turned out to be the key fob! The buttons were sometimes sticking and all of a sudden it would re-lock. Ususally it would unlock then immediately relock. Leaving no time to get into the the car. Sometimes we would be driving and the Alarm would go off without touching a thing. I ditched the Key Fob and all was well again.
I hope this helps

Central locking wont stay open


Here's what I suspect is happening. The door locks will lock and unlock normally when the key is OUT of the ignition. If the key is IN the ignition, the doors cannot be locked (manually, key fob, or otherwise, if the system is operating as designed - prevents the doors being locked when the key is in the ignition). I've seen this problem before, but on a Santa Fe, not an Accent. The ground signal of the right hand front passenger door was lost, and the doors automatically locked. Perhaps something similar is happening in the circuit between the ETACS module and the right front passenger door lock/unlock actuator. Could be anywhere in the circuit.

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!
