Default door locks gone wild

Hello,

The "automatic" door locks on my 96 Civic LX started popping open all by
themselves recently. Doesn't matter whether the car's running or not or if
the ignition is turned on or not. Thought it might be someone else's remote
but the car does not appear to have ever had remote locks. Pulled the plug
on the master switch on the driver's door and they still unlock themselves
and then keep on unlocking themselves even though they're unlocked.

Any ideas for what's causing this?

Many thanks,

Mike

:-) Do you live in Haiti, or Salem, by chance? ? :-)

Read your owner's manual, and remove the fuse for that circuit, if it
doesn't have anything else too important on it.

YOur locks have a corroded connection, or there's something gumming them
up from sliding properly. You didn't put OIL in one of them, did you?

Hey Curly,

No voodoo or spells at work here I'm afraid. More like failing electronics
I think and all of the locks still work easily and as expected (except for
unlocking themselves of course) so there was no reason or logic to oiling
them.

I don't have the owners manual and the map on the fuse box cover indicates a
couple of possible fuses for this purpose but when none of them disabled the
master switch I pulled each fuse and was still able to open and close the
locks with the switch. I suppose I could have waited a while with each fuse
out to see if the locks popped open on their own again but dismissed the
idea as too time consuming and figured pulling the fuse wouldn't solve the
problem anyway.

If the locks still open on their own when the master switch is disconnected,
that switch must lead to a relay the "thinks" it's getting a signal from the
switch and keeps opening the locks over and over again regardless. I'm
assuming that there is just one relay because the only way to open all of
the locks at once in this car is by using the master switch--the driver's
door key won't open them and neither do any of the individual plunger locks
on the other three doors.

So, does anyone know where the relay is located?

Thanks,

Mike

I once went to purchase another radio for my 98 Civic and was told tha
my remote lock control would not work since the signal was recieved an
processed by the radio. Try pulling the fuse on your radio if it is th
origional radio.
I chose not to buy the radio so I don't know if this will fix you
problem
