How To Diagnose & Fix an Integra Rear Hatch That Won't Open

Added by AutomotiveUploads
This is a common and known problem with Honda/Acura Integras with electronic rear latches. I believe the effected years are 98-2001. These are only on the 3 door versions so if you have a 4 door Integra this information won't be helpful to you.

The most common cause is a faulty latch actuator, but it could also be the switch or relay. I cover how to make that determination in this video.

There is also an extended version of this video where I take apart the actuator assembly to try and repair it if you're interested here: https://www.ericthecarguy.com/premium-content-web/13-premium-content-videos/1709-how-to-diagnose-fix-an-integra-rear-hatch-that-won-t-open-extended-version

Here is the part # for the actuator assembly: 74840-ST7-A01
