Default Power Lock Buzzing Noise

I have a 1995 Accord EX and all of the sudden my passenger door looks have begun to make a buzzing noise when the auto lock kicks in after ignition or when I manually lock the doors (also when I engage the alarm system). I know there are other Accords out there that have the same problem because I have heard it happen. I am just getting sick of hearing this buzzing noise. Does anyone know anyway to fix this problem?

Yeah but that was your rear passenger door. I have a 4 door also, but this is happening with my front passenger door and that door is used pretty frequently. I mean I know I can remove it and just pop up the lock when needed, but I'd rather have all of my doors power locks working.

I was about to disconnect mine a while back then they stopped doing it. As far as fixing the problem I was told that you need to replace the actuator (sp?) which is $100 part.

Yeah I read about that actator, but I wasnt sure if it was that because what I read was that on a 1996 Honda Accord, the front driver's side door was making the same sound, but the locks were not locking. So, I didn't know if infact it was the actuator or not. I went to the junkyard around here last night seeing if i could possible get one, but it was too hard to get and I don't know if I was looking in the right spot for it. I guess I'll have to go back because there's a ton of Accords there ranging from 1993-1997. I also saw that the actuator was $100 part and I'd rather not spend $100 on a small part like that and just go to a junkyard and possible find one.

Yeah my 97 was making a little different type of noise so we could have different problems. When I would lock my door is would just sound like it just kept trying to lock. Made me a little nervious to walk away.

Yeah, I definitely don't want to leave any of my doors unlocked because of the expensive stuff I have inside of the car Click the image to open in full size..

But, I will definitely try the actuator once I can figure out where exactally it is and how to get it off and out from the middle of the door. I wish there were some type of instructions on how to take it out, but I can't seem to find anything.

Yeah a lot of Accords have this problem from what I have seen and heard. If I can't get a good actuator from the junkyard off an Accord, I'll do what you did, order one off Ebay. Click the image to open in full size. Did you install the actuator yourself? Or did you have someone else, like a mechanic do it? I have no idea how to take it off nor install it and I don't want to spend money just to have that installed when I know I can do it myself with some instructions. I just have no idea where to get instructions on how to take it out and install it on my car. Any suggestions where I can find some instructions or do you have some by any chance?

loooks gooood.
i know they're (the actuators) are different for each door, but would the location be relatively the same?

the buzzing's come to a point where it startles the baby, can't let that continue on any longer.
