I think we should all file a class action suit against Honda for not divulging these problems to the public. They gladly took my money - I did research BEFORE I bought the car and none of these issues were ever mentioned, i.e., heater going out, tires wearing out at 20,000 miles, door locks popping open and setting off a chain reaction of locks clicking on and off as I'm driving! Then I could not lock the car or set the security system because the lock would not lock! So I stuck a thin piece of cardboard under the lock to keep it from popping open. So it works now but what a pain in the b... this all is. I chose Honda because it is supposed to be one of the best cars according to Consumer Reports.

I too have the same problem with the power door locks locking and unlocking all the time. My car is a 2008 CR-V, two-wheel drive without all the bells and whistles, but the door lock mechanism seems to be the same year after year and across the various models. And now the locks are making the loudest horrendous grinding noise as they lock or unlock. I can't get it to stop, and following the manual's suggestions to reset them doesn't seem to work. My passenger side door won't lock at all. Are there any electronics whizzes that might know how to fix this if Honda won't even recognize the problem?

I have a 2007(same model). I noticed that my settings for the auto lock system had changed a couple of times for no reason. Soon after that I noticed the battery of the car seem less enthusiastic about starting. It failed online day. I changed the battery and I haven't noticed any problems . Other than a power steering pump(75000 ) that I just purchased online, I haven't had any problems at all.

Same problem here on rear passenger door. I unlock all the doors and that particular door then re-locks itself.

Have the same problem on my 2008 Honda CRV LX. Japan vin. Front Right door locks itself. I am thinking bad actuator. Online price for part 72110SWA-D01 for you DIY people. Or else got a quote from dealer $210 installed in about 1.5 hours.
Have factory/dealer alarm that keeps going off now every time the door is opened. Key fob does not want to turn off alarm. part is on order...needs to get here soon.

I just filed a complaint on safedriver.com - hopefully others will also put a complaint in - more complaints, the more close we get to recall. My passenger side is now doing the same - we fixed our driver side - we fixed both doors, now the back passenger side is starting up.

I have a 2008 Honda CR-V and have had power door locking problems.
Symptoms were-car locking but not unlocking either with remote or key.
Took to the dealership in late 2009. Some wiring was replaced, did not solve problem. Took back to the dealership a couple weeks later and entire actuator was replaced. Solved problem until...fast forward to Feb. 2013. The second actuator has failed, and car locks once again do not open when locked with either remote or key. I took to Honda dealership today, and they said that there is a new and improved "Manufacturer fixed" actuator. This is apparently new within the last 6 months or so. So, wanted to mention, if you purchase an actuator make sure you are getting the "Fixed/Updated" version. I guess I am fortunate because the replacements thus far are still covered under an extended warranty. However, for those who are getting stuck with these costs, I also noticed that there is a law firm in Pennsylvania that just filed a proposed class action law suit on this issue against Honda in Jan. 2013. Good Luck!

Having same problem. I can only unlock using the key fob or lock switch. I cannot manually unlock any doors. When unlock I have five seconds to open any door. I removed the fuse for the power locks to remove any power, thinking it may be a short. Removing the fuse did nothing as the locks will still automatically lock themselves. I'm worried I will eventually be locked in my car or drop my keys as I am getting out thus getting locked out. I tried to reprogram the automatic lock feature that comes on when you go a certain mph...didn't work because of this problem. I will check on the actuator! Thanks for the help! I hope a new actuator works. I just hate taking a car to the shop and spending money with nothing being fixed.

I have the 2008 CR-V top of the line with leather and nav. system. And my car is in pristine condition. About 3 months ago, all my door locks started automatically locking and unlocking themselves at around 9 or 10 miles per hour. Since I spend hours each week in Los Angeles stop and go traffic, it's super annoying. Took it to the independent shop I've been going to for years, and they couldn't find anything wrong. After reading all these posts, I'll tell them to check the actuators, and I'm going to try having them lubed up like one guy suggested, before I replace things. But I'm going to go to safecar.gov and file a complaint there too. I'm afraid to let my grandkids ride in the back seat now. What if one of them decided to hang on to the door handle and it opened accidently while we were moving? This is my third Honda, and I've never had any problems outside of routine maintenance.

Same car, sam door, same problem - exactly! The door would gradually unlock after locking. I had to place a mechanical clamp around the remote cable to keep it from unlocking. This has to be a safety hazard since it becomes unlocked while in transit, not to mention, no way to secure the vehicle while it is in a parking lot.
