2003 Honda Accord Problems

Problems Shifting Into 3rd Gear

Some models have shift quality problems when shifting into third gear. A new "third gear set" from Honda will address this issue.

Power Door Locks to Activate Intermittently

Power door locks can activate intermittently due to a faulty door lock actuator in the driver's door.

Driver's Door May not Open

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.
