Default Just bought a used 2003 Honda Accord Ex, keyless entry problem?

I plan on picking it up soon. But I did notice that the car doesn't beep or the horn doesn't honk when locked by the keyless entry? The lights flash and the doors lock though. Is something wrong or am I not locking the doors correctly?

What do I do if one of the doors is not locking correctly? It is a 2003 Honda Accord Ex V6 auto...

One of the doors is not locking correctly. Also, if you got the V6 auto, you are so screwed! The Transmission is pretty much guaranteed to fail between 110,000 and 130,000 miles. Not a cheap fix either. expect between $2500 and $5000 to replace.

If one of the doors is not locking correctly (mine was driver's door) You probably have a faulty lock actuator. easy to replace, just remove the door panel, unplug, unbolt, then reverse. I think it's like $45 @autozone

The horn should honk if the lock button is pressed twice, if it doesn't,try unplugging the hood switch. There is a micro-switch in in the hood latch that gets full of dirt and grease and fails. The security system sees the hood is open and won't set the alarm, so the horn won't honk even though the doors lock.
