The 3rd door, hatchback, will not lock with the other doors in a 2002 acura rsx. Any suggestions? My driver's side door wont lock with the rest of the doors, therefore the alarm wont set either...

    Do you have aftermarket central locking system installed?
    See the car is fairly old, it might be stiff locking mechanism.

    If you can open the door panel of the 3rd door, your should see the lock mechanism for the car.

    Grab some WD40 to spray on the moving parts. You can see the moving parts by manually locking and unlocking the knob.

Replace the actuator. wouldnt recommend doing this yourself as it requires you to tear apart the door. the dealership will do it for around 150

Where is my latch toopen myhatchback located inside my acura rsx

The only way to open your trunk is to use the handle itself. If you unlock the car once (key fob), just the drivers side unlocks. If you unlock twice, both the doors and truck hatch unlock. But as far as there being a button in the cabin with which to open the trunk, there is none.

My driver side power lock does not work anyone know what is wrong and how to fix it?

if its doing the same thing as mine does than its not actually a problem...i found this out after many attempts to fix it. It's a security feature, you cant lock the driver side door from the inside, if the driver side door is open. its kinda stupid but i just started manually locking it once i close the door. hope this helps
