Safeguarding Your Honda

By: Anthony Fontanelle

Car theft is rampant nowadays, yet some careless owners do not seem to care at all about leaving their amazing cars on the streets without appropriate security. Honda, one of the most trusted automobile brands in the world, ensures motorists that its Honda door locks keep their cars secured at all times against intrusion. In the past, car doors had to be keyed for them to be locked and unlocked. Today, motorists rely on car alarms that control the lock and secure the vehicle. Power door locks are now also widely used. These let the driver automatically control his car's locks as he is seated inside his car. When the Honda door lock is activated in the driver's side, the other car doors are also locked. The inverse of the same operation happens when the door lock in the driver side is unlocked.

In the Honda power lock mechanism, the body controller is responsible for locking and unlocking the doors when the radio transmitter in the key fob sends out the correct digital code. Once the code is sent, the body controller provides power to the actuator, which locks or unlocks the door. During the power lock's early days, only the car doors can be controlled through the radio transmission. Today, however, these are now capable of locking and unlocking even the luggage compartment and the fuel filler cap door. Some power lock systems automatically unlock the doors whenever the key is detached from the ignition.

In a car door, the power-door-lock actuator is usually located below the latch. The knob that visibly sticks out of the door is connected by a rod to the latch, which is linked by another rod to the actuator. Once the latch is up, motorists are able to open the door from outside. Honda door locks are designed to endure constant use, but when you need a replacement, our site can provide the right part at the right price.
