hi guys..
i flushed my door knobs about a month a go..
everythin went smooth and ncie, no problem!
last night i went out with my car and this morning the driver side door WOULD not open with the remtoe controler.. it would not LOCK either! it would only open and close with the KEY in the door!
even with the LOCK /UNLOCk button inside the car, it wouldn't work. It sounds as if its trying to work but doesn't work...
the passenger side is fine though!
the car is still under warranty.. i already booked an appointment to get it looked at in Honda. I am rEALLY afraid that they say the warrany will not cover it (voided on the door) since u played around with it.. (which would make sense! but its honestly not because of that, cause i did that like last month...)
I called a different honda and asked them, they said if you cut your knob and something goes wrong with the door which is due to that, then the warranty will not cover it.. (knowin honda, they'd prolly stick it to that and say its due to that and not covered!)
what do you think i should do?! buy a new pair of knobs and put'em on before taking it there?! im really nervous guys.. :( :rolleye2: :confused:

oh yeah deffinitley, I would go buy a pair of knobs.
thanks dude, i thought the same thing too.. the only prob is that it has to be ordered.. so i had to pull off missions, order it from a different honda than the one i go to..
the only thing im still worried about is wether or not they'd realise that the knobs have been taken off since the first time i took them off i LITTERELY had to use a plier .. VERY rough to take out, so i think they should've been somehow glued or something in.. perhaps?! or wud they...! :eek: :confused:

lol.. NOO man.. not even! like i WISH i cud say i opened the WHOLE door. this is such an EASY thing to do... an 8 year old could honestly do it too! u just screw it off, cut the plastic and screw it back on..
im ALWAYS outta luck.. :bonk: :smack:

did you screw it on straight??? try removing the knob and see if your door would unlock when you use the keyless.
no.. u no wut.. u guys keep in mind, i had it CUT and perfectly working fine for about 1.5 -2 months!!
and also in terms of your comment, i tried the remote with the knob OFF, so it wasn't even screwed on at all! but didn' work..
seems like the motor inside is out. but i cud bet if i jus take it like this fu*ers will say its bcause of that, pay for it. then i'd have not option but to say ... um.. okay, this is>> :bsflag: we don have a middle finger, but the closest thing to it.. >>> :liar:

anyhow, im defiently goin to replace before takin it there, im jus worried if they figure it out..

Hey, not to insult your intelligence or anything, but have you made sure that ALL the doors and trunk are completely closed?

i had the same problem but my door was stock. the door actulator(sp?) was messed up. Only the passenger side open with the remote. the driver side would never open all the way enough to open the door. those were 2 really bad weeks for me
