2003 Honda Accord driver door lock actuator replacement
This is for a 2003 Honda Accord Ex 2 dr Coupe, it will probably be same for
2003-2007 as they use the same actuator. I purchased an aftermarkt one from
amazon.com for $19.95 free shipping. The Fac OE # is 72155S5PA11
I had never replaced an actuator on this vehicle before. I didnt really
find a procedure for the drivers door. Alldata information was terrible so
I decided to tackle it & document as best as possible for the rest of you.
I was quite surpised how simple it was.

2003 Honda CR-V driver's door actuator replacement
My keyless entry fob stopped working on my car door with other classic
symptoms of a door actuator failure. Parts $51.
UPDATE: 7/4/10. Six months after replacing my driver's door actuator, my
front passenger door lock starts having the same problems. I replaced it
today, the process is virtually identical - except that there is only one
electrical connector to the actuator. Since Im right handed, access to the
actuator was a little more difficult. However, the dealer price for the
part was cheaper, it was $46

Do not use an impact driver to remove the screws holding the latch assembly
to end of door. If you do, you might crease the door like I did. You can

2003-2007 Honda Accord AUX Plug Install - First Time!
I used the PIE AUX plug I got off Amazon and the Clarion AUX plug which had
thick cables and gold tips for the best quality. I did notice if you have
the car on with the AUX playing and you turn the key to the position right
before pulling the key out, the volume goes very quiet. Just turn the key
to off and then turn it back to AUX and the volume goes back to normal.

Spark Plug Well Oil Leak Fix, Honda Accord - EricTheCarGuy
I know I've promised this one for some time so here it is. If you have
this problem I recommend replacing the seals in the valve cover first and
then coming back to recheck for oil in the spark plug wells in about a
month or so, if you find oil then I recommend performing this procedure. I
can't stress enough how important it is to make sure everything is lined up
correctly when you reinstall the rocker assembly, bad things can happen if

My back light on my 2003 Honda Accord went out. Couldn't see the temp or
radio station I was on. Honda quoted me $320.00 to fix. They replace the
PCB board. Here is a much cheaper way to fix. Caution though, I am not

I enjoy the process of testing theory because you always learn something
new, regardless of the outcome.
Using a spark plug defouler kit, I install a "buffer" in between the
downstream oxygen sensor and the catalytic converter. Quite often,
frustrated car owners get the P0420 code for reasons other than a bad cat.
I have heard of people getting the code just because they removed the
converter and reinstalled it. It can also happen if you run your vehicle
out of gas etc... etc...
It is also common for car owners to get the P0420 code, replace the
converter, and both o2 sensors-- only to have the code come back after 1000
miles or so. This can be a very frustrating, time consuming and of
course-- expensive venture. Here is one way to resolve the issue. Good
luck and have fun!
