Question about Acura Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Electrical prob; my interior lights will not come on when I open the door. Driver's arm control will not open nor roll windows down on other 3 doors; trunk pop button won't open trunk ( can open trunk with trunk pop button on key fob). Already checked the "safety lock" feature on driver's door control panel; checked fuses and relays and all are good. Is it time to replace the master control switch in the driver's door?

Sounds like you blew a fuse. Check the owners manual to see which fuse corresponds to the items that aren't functioning.

It may be set in the main menu to lock only by the fob. I know on GMC's there are about 7 different locking options. I'm not a specialist in Land Rovers but the cheapest way out is to check all your options on the dash/steering wheel buttons.

Thanks for using FixYa. First of all you’ll need to check battery voltage, recharge it if it is low or jump start with another battery charger. Inspect, clean and tight both ends of all battery cables. Also check, clean and tight wiring connections. Check for voltage at relay. If relay has voltage but there is no "click" when key is turned to start, replace relay. Remove starter and inspect drive gear and flywheel teeth, replace damaged parts if necessary. Check to see if voltage reaches starter relay/solenoid when turn to start. If not, check for open P/N switch and brake or clutch pedal switch. Please pry the interior panel and release the inside door locks. If still the issue is not resolved then you’ll need to drill a two inch hole into the latch to access the inside lock link through the interior panel. After removing the panel replaces the latch to resolve the issue. See the picture where to drill---

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

When in gear door locks

If the interior door handle doesn't open the door, then you have a push bar loose or bent inside the door. If once you unlock the door from the outside you can use the interior door handle to open the door, then you either have a bad lock unlock relay, or the door lock unlock actuator itself is bad.

Driver side window will not function properly. On occasion when trying to roll up it seems to hit an invisible barrier and rolls back down at regular speed.

likely that the bolts that mount your window to the arm that lifts/lowers the window have rattled lose and are no longer allowing the rod to lift the window. my truck has recently had the same exact problem. may also be the electric motor though. mine are manual widows though but depending on vehicle there may be screws holding your interior door panel/handle on just unsnap the door cover and look inside.

1997 Volkswagen Passat the malfunction indicator light is always on, the power windows is not goin up or down and i can't open the driver door from out side

the driver door and power window is something different from the check engine light power windows sounds like a fuse is all windows are just one window check engine light or malfunction light your car every time you start it it sends signals to all the sensors in your car if it finds a fault then it throws that light on that you see heres how to find out why the light is on it stores the code to whats wrong with your car have the code pulled with a ob1 or ob2 code scanner auto parts store will do it for free could be something minor like a bad gas cap could be something more serious the door now do you have keyless entry on your door like a code you have to punch in your car door to get in it if not then is it only one door if its only one door the sping has come lose on the door handle on the inside of the door panel work on all b4 model Passats, which are (I think) from model years 1995, 1996, 1997 and 1998. If you try it and mess up your door, don't come after me. So there. The problem: External door handles on B4 Passats tend to stop working. This is a gradual process, where at first it might take a couple of pulls to open, then more pulls, and finally it won't open at all. This leads to much angst, and there's just way too much angst in the world.
A possible reason: The roll-pin that holds part of the mechanism (what I'll call the "widget" ... clever, eh?) in place tends to slide out of position, allowing the widget to slide towards the outside of the door handle.
How to check: Follow steps 1-3 below to see if your roll pin has slid out and the widget has moved out of position.
How to fix it
  1. Open the door and, using a Phillips-head screwdriver, unscrew the large screw (parallel to the door handle) at the back of the door. See #1 for a picture, or click here for a big picture
    Please note: It appears that the passenger-side doors are REVERSE threaded, so go the opposite ways to loosen/tighten the screw.

  2. Pull out the exterior handle. It should slide forward, then out. See #2 for a picture, or click here for a big picture

  3. The back of the mechanism should have a "roll pin" sticking out (see picture #2). If your problem is like mine, there will be a very small arm (widget) that should be in front of the pin (front being towards the front of the car), but has slid to the outside of the handle. You can tell which widget this is by pulling on the handle and seeing it move.
    Please note: The roll pin may have fallen out completely. If it isn't there, you can probably use a small screw or something in its place.

  4. Pull the roll pin out enough so the widget can be slid into place (you'll notice a hole in the widget). Force the widget towards the interior of the car and line it up so you push the roll pin all the way through to the hole on the back end, then go ahead and push the roll pin all the way through to lock the widget into place. You might need a screwdriver or something to force it in, and perhaps a small screwdriver to force the widget into place. When done, it should look like #3.
    Please note: For best results, push the roll pin ALL THE WAY in.

  5. Spray some lubricant (silicon gel works fine for me) on the interior of the door and the locking mechanism.
  1. Open and close the door freely!

The interior lights in my 2000 Ford F250 will not turn off. How can I get the lights to turn off?

Just to get the interior lights off to save your battery, you could pull the fuse. Refer to the service manual to determine the proper fuse.

To fix the problem, i would suspect one of the door switches is faulty.

The driver side window on my 2001 Passat won't roll up.

Pop out the switch on the door that has the issue, more than likely switch has gone bad and needs to be replaced. you will need to check it with a meter to see if power is getting to the switch and also to check when switch is activated if power goes through switch
