#57 of 100 Honda 2007 CRV EXL door lock problem!
Nov 27, 2011 (7:39 am)
I have just replaced the passenger side lock, it would lock then unlock automatically. It was a defective lock. Now the drivers side rear lock has a problem and won't lock. I have one on order to replace. You can not lock these doors manually it is all electronic.
It is not a easy job replacing these locks and the dealer wants $250 for the part and installation.
I have 2 other locks that will probably go next.
I had a 2002 Honda Accord previous with no problems locking.
There is a design flaw with these locks. Others will have the same problem, just a matter of time!
When you hit the remote twice the car horn will sound, giving you a false sense of security.
Guess what the "car is not locked" on the problem door , you can open it and the alarm will not sound.
Honda will fight a recall forever, can you imagine what it would cost on a recall , all 4 door locks on every O7 CRV and up.

My rear passenger door lock tab will initially lock when I press my master lock switch or with the button on my key. It then slowly unlocks itself.
When I am in the car and I try to manually lock it (and the drivers front door is locked) it also unlocks itself.
When the driver's door is unlocked, I am able to manually lock the door.
I have followed the directions in my manual to reset the master door lock switch and that has not changed anything.
This leaves me with all the doors being locked except for the rear passenger door.
Thank you for your input.

My son's car purchased from Galpin Honda suddenly has the lock problem. The driver front door DOESN'T unlock - isnt that quite dangerous? The left back door DOESN'T lock and the hatch doesnt open/unlock! We took it to the dealership and they surely diagnosed it as the lock acuator motor ; however not once did they volunteer information that this is a common problem amongst CRVs. Have any of you found a permanent resolution to this issue? Furthermore, has Honda acknolwedged this is a problem they must correct free of charge? They should!!!!
#60 of 100 Locked out of my 2007 Honda CRV!
Jan 07, 2012 (7:12 pm)
I was actually completely locked out of my own car and could not get into it to go to work yesterday due to the lock issue! I tried both keys remotely and manually with no success! AAA came out and was able to get me into my car so I could drive it to the dealership today. I am so extremely frustrated and very upset about the fact that I am going to have to pay an estimate of $300.00 to replace the door actuator (sp?) It sounds like there should be a recall on all CRVs that have these door locking issues. I wonder how it is that parts get recalled . . .How many people have to go through this same issue before someone will do something about it!

I just purchased a 2011 CRV- the remote keys worked for one day or at least I thought they did. Then all of a sudden it stopped locking the car but will unlock it. I got out he spare key and same issue. Tried numerous times. Had to go to the dealer 2 weeks later anyway and they said they would check it out. All of a sudden when I was there they started working and worked for a day and half and started same issue. I called and they are like well just bring it in or go to any dealer. I do not have time to keep running up there I work a lot and it is a pretty good distance. And the service guy is acting like I am some kind of loon. This really concerns me after reading all of this with these older models that a brand new car would or could have these issues. This car is probably going to be my last car I ever own since planning retirement.
#62 of 100 power lock problem
Jan 23, 2012 (5:36 pm)
I am having the same problem with my 2007 CR-V. I am also having intermittent problems getting the hatch to unlock so that I can open it. I think that it is related to lock on the front passenger door. Did anyone get this issue resolved? If so, what was the solution?
Can anyone please tell me how much to get parts, and how to repair yourself. Why do we have Honda? I have this for dependability, but it giving me problems with power locks. It is not a bad car for its money, but i would like to get into my car when I want, not when car wants me to get in. I actually had to call locksmith to open my car twice already. I need help please.

There must be some systemic problem with these electronic locking module switches. I have replace, in order, driver's door, left rear door and now the right rear door is doing the same thing (automatically unlocks) and then relocks after a stop only to unlock again. I guess Honda needs another $250 from me. 2007 CRV-EX. Of course all occurred out of warranty.

Just wanted to add my voice to the choir. I've got a 2008 CRV, and the doors recently began locking themselves immediately after I shut the door (despite the fact that I deactivated the auto door lock function). What concerns me most is you can't even manually open the driver's side door with the key anymore. The latch is stuck in the locked position and turning the key feels like you're forcing something that doesn't want to move. If the keyless entry system ever malfunctions, I'll be locked out of my own car.
Has anyone spoken to dealer about this problem? For a part like this to malfunction in less than five years seems outrageous to me.

I just bought a 2011 Honda CRV and I am having the exact same problem.
My remote will unlock the doors but will not lock them. When I get in the car I cannot lock the doors manually, which doesn't give me a safe feeling at all. I talked to one guy and he said the doors will not lock while the key is in the ignition. What happens when I am at a stoplight and I feel the need to lock my doors? Anybody else having these problems?

I am having the same prob with my 03, wondering if you found any solution. I replaced the driver side actuator (and then the locks lock automatically after I would unlock them, and remain locked!). But I suspect that the actuator did need to be replaced, but maybe there is some kind of mechanical issue with latch mechanism, that is not allowing the actuator to work properly. Something seems stuck. Did you ever get a solution,
