Hi guys,
I have a 93 accord wagon...none of my 5 doors are locking w/ the electronic switch on the drivers door. I've bought a used lock/actuator assembly and the problem persists. To me then the actuator isn't problem...is there a master control box for the door locks? where is it? obviously, it could be a wiring issue, a short or a fried wire from being opened or closed for 25 yrs.


Are there any other possibilities?


much thanx,

much thanx,
How about a fuse? Check your fuse box.

Wiring could also be an issue. I remember the central locks not operating on my 2000 Maxima several years ago (when it was pretty new) and the dealer fixed it, it was pretty simple, something like a simple relay or something.

Here’s a short video that might be helpful in locating the master control and.... resetting it.

Thanx, my mechanic swears he checked in the driver's door and didn't find it. I guess I'll have to the shop and be there when he opens it. The 2 videos I found on youtube show it in the door. He's seen the same videos and can't explain why it isn't in the door.



Oh well,
