Customer Question
My fob won’t unlock...

My fob won’t unlock the car at all. The lights flash as though it’s unlocking but no unlocking noise. Also, the driver side door and trunk won’t open , but the other 3 doors do. Any thoughts

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fob's battery?

It’s a 2007 RDX

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '07 Acura?

Yes battery just teplaced

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes nothing other than the battery

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Again, the fob locks the car just fine, ruling out the battery issue also

What Customers are Saying:

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

FredUSA

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
