I have a Honda Accord Ex and everytime I come to a complete stop and take off, my doors sound like they are locking again. Also, my alarm doesn't work anymore since that started. Do you have any idea what could be causing the problem?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Jody DeVere, CEO at, Inc.

Door locks would repeatedly try to keep locking themselves. Replaced driver's side door lock actuator. Went with OEM part, Honda Part Number 72155-SV4-A21, $160.
The actuator mechanism has two rubber stops that eventually wear out or fall out of place and causes the malfunction. It is somewhat of a pain to access and replace.
