Initially one of the mechanic said the same thing, that the passenger side door will have only 2 wires/terminals connecting to the actuator.

But the other mechanic said, lets open it and check and to our surprise passenger side also there are 4 wires/terminals.

Does it mean that you could avail the central lock facility when locking / unlocking the passenger side door also? (will all 4 doors lock / unlock when using the passenger door?)

The Ikon will have two master guns and two slave guns. Since it has a keyhole on both front doors, each of them will have a master gun to trigger the remaining lock guns. Hence it is possible to swap the front guns.

Default Honda City 2013 - Passenger door does not open after being hit

Guys - i had a moron back up his Safari Dicor into my passenger side door (2013 Honda City iVtec) and dented it. Its a small dent below the door handle.

But now the door wont unlock from outside. I can only open it from inside.

Would you know what might be the problem and how to fix it ?

Also, would any of you know if the 2014 City engine guard is compatible with the 2013 iVtec ?

Mods - Please merge this with any existing threads as you see appropriate.

The lock has broken (the linkage inside that is), replace and reopen. The indentation can be dry dented if the paint is not chipped. The A.S.S. might tell you to repaint the door but that can be avoided by getting this done at any FNG or body shop like Sai Colorium.

Agree with Khoj on the suspect.

The dent may have cause the internal linkage between the Lever and the Latch (usually held by tiny plastic pivots on both ends with a Metal spoke between then) to break/dislodge.

Simply opening the Door trim/Panel would give you the Idea.

Restarting an old thread for a 10 year oold car...

My Ikon is equipped with Xenos security system on top of central locking.
1. since last one year to about last month the LH door lock was not actuating by itself everytime. Adding to confusion, @ service station this worked flawlessly.
2. I relied on the master lock in RH to lock & unlock
3. Lately the RH side unlock started misbehaving initiating a loop behavior of trying to lock & unlock while engaging remote lock.

4. I thought it was the transmitter and a little DIY servicing helped then
5. Now the RH door is refusing to unlock, leaving the remote useless.
6. Current situation is that I use the LH to manually unlock (which initiates loop of lock-unlock) and internally unlock the master in RH for lock release. To lock I use the master in RH manually. I have disconneted Xenos temporarily to avoid further issues.

Showed to a local electrician, who opened up LH and claimed the lock elec/mech is faulty. Also after his service, the power windows started screeching

What are my options?

1. Service center is 35 km far and not within reach. Also cost of servicing means replacement of 2 master locks - bang 7k
2. Can installation of another security system help? As that person with his know-how perhaps can fix the lock issue?
3. Any recommendations to get this done outside FSS near to Mahindra world city

The car is 2006 Ford Ikon Flair

I think the analysis of the local electrician that the the lock elec/mech (i.e actuator) being faulty is correct. There is a motor and switch in the actuator and sometimes they get bad or accumulate carbon causing these issues.

Unfortunately he is correct and i was only confirming by taking it to the mechanic. Appreciate if someone can suggest a non-FSS way to fix this.

You can go to any multi brand service center and they should be able to replace the part. Changing actuator is not complicated and I have actually removed and repaired myself once. Not sure of the cost but I saw somebody mentioning less than a 1000/- for a pair.
