DOOR LOCKS NOT WORKING PROPERLY

2003 Honda CRV

Electrical problem
2003 Honda CRV 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 195000 miles

Hi,

When I use my keyless remote to unlock or lock the doors, none of the doors lock or unlock.

When I am inside the car, and I use the switch on the driver's door to lock or unlock all doors, all the doors except the driver's door does as I desired.

I have to manually lock/unlock the driver door.

The strange thing is why with the keyless remote, none will lock/unlock, and in the car all but the driver's door locks/unlocks.

I changed the battery in the keyless. The horn sounds when the doors are locked. The lights flash too, so the keyless works.

Any ideas?

Sounds like you have a problem with the driver door lock actuator.

Thanks I thought that could be it. But was wondering then why the inside power door lock it able to unlock the other doors. But not with the remote. Seems strange.

Is there a definite giveaway when you would no it is the actuator that is the problem and not an electrical issue with the car's computer?
