RSX Type S 2004 keyless entry will lock & unlock the

RSX Type S 2004...

RSX Type S 2004 keyless entry will lock & unlock the passenger door and hatchback but not drivers door. Also, the unlock function acts normally [audible unlock and lights flash] but the lock function results in only and audible lock but the lights no longer flash. I've put new batteries in each keyless fob.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you double-checked to make sure the positive and negative signs are lined up correctly?

Sorry, don't understand.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Hatchback?

As I said, 2004

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

I am attempting to remedy the problem by myself ... until I can't. Batteries in fobs are new. Driver's door will only lock with keys. Driver's side door lock button on the door panel will not lock the driver's door but WILL lock the pass. and hatch.

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

That should be it.

Reminder, I have not been paid at this point and won't be until I receive a positive rating from you. At that point I will receive a portion of what you've already paid Just Answer.

I am a Honda/Acura only technician of 11 years so I know the brand well. The problem is a faulty door lock actuator. I will include a link to view the factory part, part number, and reduced online pricing. Replace this and your lock will work again. If you have any additional questions just let me know. Thanks!

You can go ahead and rate me positively. Don't worry, there aren't additional charges for posting to this thread after you rate so we can keep chatting. Thanks

Justin, Many thanks for your quick response ... gave you all 5 stars ... hope that's satisfactory.
I have some follow-up Qs.; will the actuator work on any door i.e., is it bi-directional - no left, right or center mounting orientation? will I have to re-program my fobs? will I need any special tools?
Mechanic for Acura: justinsbg, Acura Mechanic replied 4 years ago

1). The actuator part number in the link is for the driver's door only.

2). It will only install one way. You'll have to remove the latch to replace the actuator. Once you get the latch out replacement of the actuator will be self explanatory.

3). No special tools. Phillips head screw driver, 10mm socket, long flat blade screw driver to pop out the lever connecting the outer handle to the latch. I think that's it

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
