Locks not working and Windows acting weird

I recently bought a 03 accord v6 3.0L 2 door. The doors do not lock with the key or the buttons only if u push them down yourself. You hear the drivers door trying to unlock but it doesn't, the passenger doesn't even make the noise. I'm not sure if this is a complete different problem but the passenger window,when rolling down rolls itself back up. If I use the drivers button to roll it up it has a better chance of staying down but will still roll right backup. The drivers side is usually fine but you have to hold the button until it's half way when closing it shut unless rolls back down... Someone help. I'm not trying to deal with not having locks

You might have a short in your door.

Also, might have a problem with the window switches.

You might want to try to find a indephendant mechanic which specializes in elect. repair, Honda prefered. Start looking on the net in your area.

door locks dont work

my door locks on my 2003 accord coupe hasn't worked since I got the car. I can put the key in the door and lock it like that and just push down and pull up the sticks but that's it. when you click the button on the door you can hear the drivers side door trying to come up but dosent, you can also hear from the passenger side a weird spring type noise a silent DOYYNGG every 25 or so seconds like soething broken in there. let me know what your advice is

There are things that can be tested here, but it does take some work and patience. I did not have to do this but attached are procedures for how testing of various actuators and switches can be done.

Also note that there is a power window relay so you might also want to replace that first and see if it helps; if a relay is going / gone intermittently it could give you strange symptoms.

Does the 03 have auto up, auto down?

It may simply need the reset procedure found here in this thread....

power window control unit reset
