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.
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 .
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.
i have had this prob before and it just started on my passanger side now its an easy fix...its the door actuator as u have noted above but u can buy one off ebay for about $10.83 shipped !!! just got just got mine installed nore more buzzing !!
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. 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?
