Default Power Door Locks not working?

Have a 98 civic lx sedan no mods to it its pretty old i guess. Well the power door locks have failed for a while now and its been a pain to manually push and pull the bullet locks in order to lock the door. I've tried it while the car was off and when the car was on still no response so im not really sure what happend to the power door locks, havent taken it to a place for a fix yet cause im planning on DIY. Also I've already checked the fuses and they aren't blown or anything. any tips on how to fix it?

Is this an electrical or mechanical problem? Is it difficult lock and unlock the doors manually?

Why not fix them yourself rather than paying somebody?

Tell me how you tested the fuses and which specific ones you tested.

How could you possibly say this with confidence? Don't you need more information?

been there myself on my own hondas. First the power door lock does not work and the lever to lock and unlock become hard to freely move and the actuator is all jammed up.

You're just guessing. Do you want the guy to purchase actuators even though they might not be the problem? There are proper diagnostic tests to avoid throwing money away.

[QUOTE=RonJ;3366961]Tell me how you tested the fuses and which specific ones you tested.

I'm having a similar issue w/key fob and locks...could you fill me in on all fuses that would effect locks...also if my locks are clicking but not locking/unlocking, would that rule out an electrical issue

Sorry for the thread jack
