1996 Honda Accord Engine Size unknown Front Wheel Drive Automatic 175000 miles
My '96 Honda Accord seems to be posessed. When I first got the car about 18 months ago, I had to replace the lock motor in the driver's side door. Just 6 months ago, the rear driver's side door started malfunctioning in the same way, but I've yet to fix it since I rarely use that door. Well the other day, I started driving the car and the locks just started locking & unlocking on their own. Or at least trying to. Sometimes it happens so fast that it doesn't have time to fully unlock before it locks itself again. Mind you, this is while I'm not pressing any buttons. Sometimes it happens just once every ten mins. And sometimes it's 20 times in one min. Yesterday when I would press the lock/unlock button on the car door, the locks wouldn't move, nor would they even make a sound. Yet today, they attempt to lock, but yet won't do anything when pushing up to lock them.
I also have an alarm on the car, and when I press the button to unarm the car & unlock the doors, it does one of two things. It sometimes attempts to unlock the doors and fails, or it doesn't even attempt to unlock them at all. Either way, I end up having to use the key to manually unlock it.
The car can even be sitting by itself, while either running or not, and it locks & unlocks itself. So I either have to make sure I have a window down or my spare key on me so I don't get locked out.
We've checked the fuses and they're fine. The only thing that was recently done to the car was last week when we took off the driver's side door panel to spray some silicone lubricant on the tracking for the window to make it work better.
Everyone telling me something different when it comes to fixing this problem! I'd like your opinion!
