Default Remote locking weirdness

2003 2-dr Accord LX, v6

The remote locking on this car has a mind of its own. Pressing the lock
button will honk the horn but not lock the doors. Every once in a while
the the doors will lock. Manually locking works just fine. The trunk
release also works without any problem. Replaced the battery in the key
but still get same results.

Anyone experienced this problem and know of a solution? Is there a
programing reset that might fix it?

Any help/advise would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried the master power switch on the drivers door?
If that's not working you may be looking at replacing the door lock actuator
in that door. It controls the actuator on the passenger door also.

THanks for the reply. Is the actuator located in the control panel of
the door or somewhere else in the car? The other problem I'm having is
the passenger window doesn't operate. When I try to operate the
passenger window from the driver's side, I can hear a clicking in the
switch. I replaced the passenger door control but still hear the
clicking and the window won't work. Could these two problems be related?

The actuator is in the driver door and it is attached/mounted to the latch
assembly. Some year/models you can buy the actuator by itself and other
years it is a complete assembly with the latch.
I'm sorry, I can't answer definitely if it is related but my guess is that
it is. There is a module (again on some models), I believe it's called a
multiplex control that controls or ties in all these functions and other
power systems. But, you have one window that works, so I could be off base.
Good luck.

Did the control in the drivers side happen to get wet (very)? I only
say that because I noticed in my 04 that if it rains hard and the
window is slightly open at the top, all the water drips on the door
control. I haven't experienced this problem myself, but the first
time I saw the way the water hit it I thought it could be a potential
problem.

For no apparent reason I experienced something kind of similar. I could
lock all the doors with the remote but not get the horn to beep and the
alarm system to activate. Also, even with the key in the ignition the car
doors would lock on its own in a random manner. Didn't dare leave the key
in the car when at the gas pump for fear I'd get locked out (did try a new
remote battery and it didn't help). This lasted for quite a long time and
then for no reason, everything went back to operating normally I have a
hunch the cold weather had something to do with it; it's the only thing
that I can think of. It's been working without incident for quite a while
now.

I wonder if disconnecting the car battery for 15 minutes would clear any
programming and reset the system to "factory" settings?

then,I'd RTFM first,maybe it has a clue about this.

Replacing the driver door lock actuator has been the most common repair for
"phantom door locking"
