Drivers side door will...

Drivers side door will not lock with key or fob. 2004 honda pilot

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

Won't lock with key either. fob battery is new

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

I'm a 70yo lady who does not do repairs. lol I'm in a rural area and have no one local to ask.

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

That's my only issue

Other doors lock with both key and fob. Only drivers door won't lock with either.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
no thank you.

Ok, then this is a bad drivers door lock actuator, and will need to be replaced

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

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

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!!!!
