2002 Honda Accord ProblemsPower Door Locks to Activate Intermittently
Power door locks can activate intermittently due to a faulty door lock actuator in the driver's door.
The driver's door latch assembly can break internally, which causes the door to stay closed. The interior and exterior door handles do not work to open the door. Our technicians note that the door panel must be removed while the door is closed (likely damage will occur) and the latch assembly must be drilled in a specific spot for the door to open.
2002 Honda Accord QuestionsMy car won't start. (2 answers)
One day, I had to have my car jumped off to start and the lights and radio were coming on just fine. My uncle tightened the cables and my car crank just fine all day. After I shut off the car after coming from the store that night, my car hasn't crank since and everything else is coming on ju...
I have just had both replaced but the battery goes dead when the car is running. If I leave the lights off and air off it will take a little longer to go dead though.

2002 Honda Accord RecallsDriver's Front Air Bag Defective
In a crash that deploys the driver's front air bag, the inflator of the air bag can rupture, causing metal debris to strike vehicle occupants. Dealers will replace the front driver's air bag inflator free of charge to correct the concern.
This limited regional recall is for vehicles currently registered or first sold in Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and equipped with Takata-brand air bag inflators. Upon deployment the driver and/or passenger airbag inflator could rupture, increasing the risk of personal injury. Honda dealers will replace the affected airbag inflator modules to correct this concern.
Honda is recalling 2,430 vehicles because a driver's airbag inflator, installed as a replacement part, may be defective. In the event of deployment, these inflators could produce excess internal pressure and rupture, increasing the risk of injury to vehicle occupants. Dealers will inspect and replace the driver's airbag inflator as necessary. The recall is expected to begin by June 27, 2011.
