Question about 2004 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Power locks on '04 Honda Accord LX does not work.

I changed the fuse (#8 on the fuse - 20amps) but the power locks does not work. I called the Honda dealer and they told me it is not covered under warranty, and I know they will charge me about $700 to get it fixed. I am wondering if I have a better option to get it fixed appropriately.

Thanks!

The under-dash fuse relay box also contains 10A FUSE 7 and 7.5A FUSE 21. Either or both could be open.

SOURCE: 2004 Honda Accord Euro. Central

I am a mechanic and had the same problem with a 2005 Acord that I purchased couple of months ago. Contact through the trade provided little help. The problem arose during a week that we in Adelaide, South Australia had a record o 40+ degrees centigrade heat. I noticed the drop knob slightly moving when the immobiliser was activated, but the drivers door failed to lock. Key locking would lock all doors however.
The cost of a door actuator from a Honda dealer was $185.00 (Aus), about $250 (US). The spare parts guy told me they had them in stock and sold a number of them. As a result I decided to find out whether the actuator was in fact faulty. I susequently removed the door lock and actuator assembly from the door. (A fiddly type job). The actuator assembly is in a plastic sealed assembly. By using a lot of patience and a box cutter I was able to cut around the assembly and then carefully lever the plastic housing apart. This revealled the small electric motor (similar to a slot car motor) that drove a worm and wheel assembly and a system of cams that actuated the door lock system. I found on dismantling the electric motor that the armature was coated with grease from the wormwheel /cam assembly that is mounted above the motor when installed in the vehicle. I cleaned the armature and brushes using superfine wet and dry carborundum paper, undercut and cleaned out the two armature segments of all remaining grease with a solvent. The motor was then tested with 12 volts and found to be ok. I then reinstalled the motor and glued the housing back together. It now works fine. I believe the housing was either initially overfilled with lubricant or that the high ambient temperature caused the grease to melt and flow into the elecric motor contaminating the motor. (There is no seal between the gearbox and the electric motor). The job took a few hours from start to finish but I saved the cost of purchasing the part and didn't let it beat me.
Cheers and beers

SOURCE: power door locks not working on 1998 honda accord lx

I promise this works 'cause I used it:


Put the key in the ignition, move the intermittent wiper control to the middle possition and then turn the key on.

just to clarify it's the ring that controlls the intermittent wiper speed and not the int / low/ high switch.


What this does is it resets the multiplex unit that controlls the accessories such as the power door locks. This problem usually happens once the battery has been removed or disconnected and reconnected. Every once in a while the multiplex systems lock up. Especially on the 98s. That's how you wake em up.

Using a volt meter or test light will tell you if the voltage is on the switch. Any auto parts store will have both. You can make a test light with an ice pick, a long piece of wire and an alligator clip. When looking for voltage hook alligator to ground. The dealer or owners manual should tell you how to reset the anti-theft circuit. On some cars inserting a key into the lock and unlocking the car. will do it. If there is power to the switch, could be a motor problem. No power could be a fuse/circuit breaker. Older cars can have corrosion on plugs, wiring insulation problems, loose or corroded connections. Good luck. Hope that helps.
