#59 of 89 Re: Honda 2007 CRV door lock problem! [ruj]
Dec 28, 2011 (7:43 pm)
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 89 Locked out of my 2007 Honda CRV!
Jan 07, 2012 (8:12 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!
#61 of 89 2011 Honda CRV Locks
Jan 19, 2012 (11:02 pm)
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 89 power lock problem
Jan 23, 2012 (6:36 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,

So far, I have replaced 3, all but the front passenger door. The service tech at Honda was aware of the issue, however, Honda, does not recognize the issue as a defective design, or defective actuator unit. So I guess we get to replace on our own at about $250 per unit...
#68 of 89 1997 CRV lock / inside handle issue....
Aug 07, 2012 (6:27 am)
It looks like this thread is still active so maybe I can get some feedback. My drivers door lock has been difficult to open with key since i bought it used about 1.5 yrs ago. I'd have to lock unlock it few times cause it would unlock but then lock again when key returned to up. Plus when it did unlock it felt like it was forced. The drivers lock also locked / unlocked all doors and the drivers door had to be locked with key when exiting vehicle (i was told this was normal).
The other day I went to exit vehicle and inside handle wouldn't open door tried locking / unlocking with inside switch they all went up and down but handle still not working. Now i have to put win down and reach outside to open door. A friend who's locksmith came and checked it out found all looked fine so he said i needed to get a new door latch. He said it wasn't the electronic part that did the auto lock of all doors cause they all still lock with the inside switch.
After reading this thread I am wondering. Does anyone know if this problem is due to actuator or do I need to replace the latch part? Problem is so far i've only found 1 latch part and it is for right front door!
