Defective door locking systems in 2013 Honda Cr-v vehicle. We have had to replace 3 door lock actuators on our 2013 Cr-v and now have had a 4th door lock actuator go bad. We have spoken with american Honda, and they informed us that the actuator is not defective. Well, if it is not defective, then why is it not working? we asked to speak to a manager, and were informed that the manager would tell us the same thing. We have spoken with other Honda owners of different vehicles, and they are also experiencing door lock actuator problems with their vehicles, whether it be a Cr-v, accord, civic, etc. My previous 2008 Honda civic had to have 12 door lock actuators replaced. I've spoken with a couple of the Honda service techs, and they laughed when I told them about the door actuator problem. One tech said they replaced them quite often. This is a defective product and a class action lawsuit needs to be started to remedy this known problem. There was a class action suit against Honda for 2007-2011 Honda Cr-v's which Honda settled. Sincerely, tom counavelis.

Front passenger door lock will not stay unlocked after being activated from the driver's side or passenger side. This poses a safety problem should the front passenger need to exit the vehicle in an emergency situation. The rear driver's side door lock will not stay locked, after manually "locking" the vehicle and especially after the vehicles automatic locking system is activated. This poses a safety issue should a child, or a passenger if any age can open the door while the vehicle is in motion. This is a safety feature and door locks should be covered by Honda with no expiration.

Recall came out for the driver's door lock because the door will not lock or cycles up and down when trying to lock the door. It was replaced but the same exact problem happened on the passenger side door lock. This is a safety hazard as the passenger door could not be opened. Was charged for replacement and Honda service stated the passenger side door lock did not have a recall despite having the same problem as stated in the recall.

Drivers door lock actuator- my doors would not auto lock any longer when beginning to drive. The auto system continued to try auto lock while I was driving clicking back on and off trying to get the doors to lock while my vehicle was in motion. Also my doors would no longer lock with the key remote. My VIN number fell outside the range for 2009 Cr-v's with the same reported problem covered in the svc bullentine #14-083 for replacing the door lock actuator. I believe other vehicles are effected like mine which is a safety issue when the door lock will not activate while driving. This happens on city streets or on the highway.

My 2005 Cr-v awd, four door locks failed within two months, first the passenger side door, then the rear passenger side, then the driver side, and then the tail door lock, I took it to a local dealer, and was told all the actuators were not working. I had two of them replaced, they are expensive. I was told there is a recall on the 2007 models, I think they should start an investigation on 2005 models also,.

Both passenger rear doors stopped responding to the keyless remote. They can only be unlocked manually from the inside of the car. Driver door stopped responding shortly there after. Have to manually unlock/lock the door with the key. The interior driver door lock can not be moved up or down manually. Only the key can move the door lock. Now the key is sticking and not turning in the driver side door lock. Must try multiple times to finally get it to work. 3 out of 4 door locks are faulty and do not work properly. It's only a matter of time before the front passenger door malfunctions as well.

I purchased my 2011 Honda crv brand new from our local Honda dealership. I have been happy with it until last month. I began to notice that whenever I came to a stop or slowed down below 10 mph and then accelerated, my doors would make the locking sound even though they were already locked. It happens repeatedly as I slow down/stop and then accelerate. Then today (3/4/2014) the problem escalated. I came out of the grocery store and couldn't unlock the cargo door with my key fob. I noticed that the left passenger door didn't unlock as well. I pressed the button a few more times and they wouldn't unlock. The driver door, front passenger and right rear passenger doors did unlock. So then I pressed the unlock button on the driver door armrest but the cargo door and the left passenger door still didn't unlock. I had to put my groceries in through the right rear passenger door since the cargo door doesn't have a way to open manually from the inside, nor manually with a key from the outside. If this problem gets worse, this can pose a very serious safety problem. What if there's an emergency and your car doesn't unlock? I just did some research on the problem to see if it was something simple that could be fixed. A quick online search brought my attention to countless complaints of door lock failures on crv's. Seems this is an issue that's been going on for years (at least 2007-2011). I was shocked to find out Honda hasn't issued a recall. This is a widespread and serious problem! I called my Honda dealership to find out the approximate cost to replace the door lock actuators. This isn't a cheap fix! they would charge $180 labor for each door they would need to fix on top of the cost of each door lock actuator which ranges from $59 to $75 each, depending on which door the part is for. I would need 2, possibly 3, replaced so that would be about $500 to almost $750.
At times passenger front door locks can not be unlocked. At other times lock will randomly lock and unlock during which door can not be unlocked. This creates unsafe conditions where door can not be locked at times or unlocked at times. I believe this to be a defect with the door lock actuator.
The driver door lock will not operate via remote key-less control. All other locks work.
Power door locks failure on two doors - one door will unlock by itself all the time. After 2 months the door lock on another door malfunctioned with the opposite problem - the door locks by itself all the time.
Passenger side door lock will not stay unlocked. Either manually unlocked or automatic such as when the transmission is put in park position. This causes a potential safety problem for any passenger sitting in the passenger location. They cannot conveniently exit the vehicle at any time.
2007 Honda Cr-v rear door lock. When lock the door and started driving, the rear door lock automatically unlock while car is in motion. Rear door lock cannot be lock at all, the door lock will auto re-open after each lock.
Front drivers side and front passenger door locks did not activate per design when reaching speed of 9 mph. Consider this to be a safety problem in that driver or passenger could open doors while traveling at high rates of speed or in case of accident doors could open exposing driver or passenger to harm.
Rear passenger door lock cannot be locked. Keep unlocking by itself. Major safety issue. I've done my research and seems like a very common issue on 2007-2009 crv. Honda needs to fix this issue ASAP before anybody get hurts.
Initially, over a year ago, the power door lock actuator would make a high pitched humming/whining noise when activated, but the door locks still worked properly back then. In the last two months, the door locks sound as if they are locking and unlocking repeatedly and continuously on their own without any human intervention as I drive the vehicle. The locking/unlocking noise seems to be related to the acceleration and deceleration of the vehicle. This is a safety issue as the door locks will not remain locked as I drive the vehicle. My internet search reveals that this is a common problem with Honda crv's from 2007 to 2011. This safety problem should be the subject of a recall. Honda knows of the problem as there is at least one lawsuit seeking class certification in the united states district court for the district of new jersey, but Honda will not fix the problem. .

The passenger door lock will not stay unlocked no matter whether I unlock it from outside with the remote or from the inside driver lock button. It unlocks then a couple seconds later, it locks itself. This happens every time I unlock the door - not sporadically.
The passenger side door lock will not remain locked. It will unlock by itself and when the car is in motion at more the 10 mph the lock will cycle between locking and unlocking. It is the same problem that many other Honda owners of a Cr-v appear to be having. A passenger must than ride with the door unlocked and I feel this is a safety hazard. Also, the car can't be secured when parked. Honda corp. Is aware of this problem but has not made any effort to correct it. Honda corp. States that this is normal wear and tear and because it is out of the warranty mileage(36. 000) it is the owners responsibility to pay for this repair. To me this sounds more like a design flaw and Honda should stand behind their product.
Started experiencing door lock failure a few months ago. (~56,000 miles) I noticed driver side rear door lock is not staying locked, car locks continually try to lock themselves when accelerating from 5-10 mph. Door locks keep attempting to lock, driving me crazy. Not to mention a big safety issue.
The rear door lock fails to lock. The rear door lock will not lock when using the key fob. The door can be opened while the car is traveling. The door tries to lock after every stop once the car is going again but still will not lock. Signifcant safety problem as a child can open the door while it is moving.
Passenger side door lock failed due to defective part (door lock actuator) and door cannot be unlocked or opened from outside of the vehicle.
My rear driver's side door lock would not lock. I took my Cr-v into the dealer and they said my actuator needed to be replaced. I had just bought the car, used, 3 months previously. I've read online that several people have had the same problem! this needs to be recalled! recently (11/27/13) my doors are now starting to unlock and lock on their own as well! I read that this might be due to other actuatiors needing to be replaced! I've always had a Honda but if this problem isn't resolved I will never again own a Honda!!! recall now!!!.
2007 Honda crv problems with door locks. The driver's door lock automatically unlocks while the vehicle is moving and can't be relocked. At first it was the passenger door lock, got that fixed @ Honda and cost about $300 back in oct 2010 @ 38500 od mi. Now, the driver's door lock has the same problem! using remote keyless or driver's master door lock button, all doors lock except for the driver's door. It constantly makes grinding sounds and lock clicking on but does not lock!!. . Tried to lock manually, but key does not work, afraid to force it and have it break in the lock. Safety issue and as well as property damage (unable to secure property). I hear this has been an ongoing issue with Hondas crv and other models, dating back quite a few years and makes sense if Honda contracting the same vendors! quality control issue? the recent recall for 2012 Hondas and acuras for defective door locks!! if using same vendor - same probem - and why only 2012 if older cars have had the same problems? recall should be for older cars as well! ** other problem is the powertrain @ 66000 od mi. - recently noticed that at speeds of 10 - 15 mph ( after every stop) car sluggish as if about to lose power (dangerous safety issue) recall issues!.
In December, my rear passenger side door would not unlock. I tried to manually unlock the door and the lock would not budge. My baby was in his rear-facing carseat on the rear passenger side of the car so I had to open the rear driver side door to get my baby out through that door. The problem has continued to escalate to the point that as of today (06/11/13), the rear passenger side door will no longer lock and the front passenger side door will only remain unlocked for a few seconds before moving itself back to the locked position. I have an appointment with my local Honda dealer tomorrow to fix the problem at my expense. This is a safety issue and based upon the number of complaints I have found on the internet, Honda should be forced to issue a recall. I have three children and I fear that if there is an accident and we need to evacuate the vehicle, the door locks may fail all together and we may not be able to safely exit the vehicle.
In August of 2012, the right rear door lock would not stay locked. We had the faulty part replaced. Now in June of 2013, we are having problems with the right front door lock. It began by not staying unlocked. When unlocked the door by (by any method), the lock would only stay unlocked for less than a second before relocking on its own. Now the problem has changed to where the door will not stay locked as in the problem door lock from last year. The door continues to try to lock each time the vehicle reaches the speed that the doors lock automatically.
Tl-the contact owns a 2007 Honda crv. The contact stated that when starting the ignition the passenger door locks fail without warning locking all doors. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified. The approximate failure mileage was 66,000. St.
Failure of door lock. The rear passenger door will not lock despite all attempts to get it to lock and the rear driver door continuously makes a loud clicking sound every 2-3 minutes as if it is locking and unlocking the clicking sound has now changed to a loud buzzing soundthe evening of Nov 11, 2013 my car had been invaded, cannot say broken into because the door would not lock! police report filed. Have appt 11-25-2013 with Honda dealer for diagnosis-actuator?. First owner of a Honda crv 2007.
My vehicle door locks are defective they open then close then open again. Not even if I open them manually!.
My 2008 Honda crv in 2010 began having problems with the rear door lock and theny the hatch lock. When I put the rear door lock into child safety mode and took it off child safety mode, the door lock would not unlock. It kept locking and I would have to manually press down on the lock button in order to open the door from the outside. I took it to a Honda car dealership service dept. And was told it was the actuator and it happens often to Honda vehicles and it would cost me $380 to repair it even thought the part I was told was actually only $80 dollars. To me and to everyone else this has happened to, this is obviously a manufacturer's defect if it happens often to Honda vehicles. I refused the repair because it was very expensive. Later in a few weeks, my hatch would not unlock unless the defective rear door lock was also unlocked. Now, it is 2014 and as of Friday, 2/28/14, all my locks are now locking immediately after I used my automatic door unlock on my key fob. I can't even get into my car unless I'm quick about it before it locks on me again. Then when I want to get out of my car and the door unlocks, before I can even open the door to get out of my car, all the locks lock up again without my having done anything. This is a safety hazard for me and my family. The door locks are defective and Honda should take responsibility to fix these defects. Here is the link to arfc. . Read more...
