CR-V 4-cyl

On 08/09/2013 I parked my Honda CRV in my driveway and locked my car with my keyless remote. One hour later our family decided to go out to dinner. We went out to our car and it wouldn't open. Tired the key in the door and tried the keyless remote also tried the spare keyless remote, would not open. At 9:30 P.M. we call aaa to open the car, at 10 P.M. aaa showed up and opened the front passenger door. He got the door open, we decided to take the car to the Honda dealer in the morning. During the night, the doors automatically locked. I needed to go to work, had to get a ride with someone else. My husband waited 3 hours for a tow-truck to show up to take it to a Honda dealership. We were very surprised to find out this was not covered by a recall, this is a safety issue. Where we live the temperature during the day in August runs from 95 degrees to 110 degrees, if this happened during the day and children were in the car, this could cause death.

We have a 2007 Honda CRV and have been having issues with our locks. They will click numerous times when they are not supposed to...everytime a stop is made while driving the car they reclick. It can be a stop sign, stop light, or just a brief stop and we will hear a clicking sound like they are relocking. We have often noticed that when someone tries to enter the driver door or front passenger door the unlock mechanism on the key or driver door has to be hit at the exact same time for a person to be able to open the door. Although it is very frustrating to hear these clicks over and over and to have to deal with trying to get into the car like this, there is an even bigger issue of safety. The rear passenger door (behind the driver's seat) will unlock itself after the car is in motion. You can hear the rear door click to unlock and it will show orange. What is even more alarming is that the rear door can be opened while the car is in motion even after the doors have been manually locked by the driver pushing the lock button! this is a serious safety hazard as my children ages 7 and 9 ride in the backseat of our CRV.

My Honda CR-V 2007 just started to have problem with the door lock/unlock system. I started to notice the problem probably in November 2013. The car locking default set-up was at 15mph (meaning even if I forget to lock the doors, they will be locked when the car reach 15mph). However, one of the door just unlock all by itself right-after it get locked. This is a huge safety concern if you have kids in your car. I realized many CR-V owners have the same problem, but Honda decided not to do anything about it.

My front passenger side door will not stay locked. Each time I lock it, all the other doors stay locked except this door. I can not manually lock it, therefore my car is now subject to vandalism or theft. I am a single female and this terrifies me that when I am sitting at a traffic light at light someone could easily attack me or try to steal my car. I contacted Honda and they said that there is absolutely nothing they can do.

Passenger side door does not lock. I have a child and it poses a safety risk as the door does not lock. This poses a lot of risk to thief and others as it is not working as designed.

The driver side door locks have faulty actuator pumps. The doors will lock and unlock at inappropriate times and the passenger side door lock will initially lock and then unlock while the car is in motion. We're getting the door locks fixed out of pocket, but this level of failure seems unreasonable for the age and condition of this car. Honda needs to assist with repairs and/or help owners pay for the fix.

The power switches on doors are easy to fail. The actuator failed and the door is getting 'locked' itself which could be an issue if child is left in the car with key. I got the first incident of this issue on my passenger - right door about 6 months ago and now got the same issue on door in driver seat.

My door locks (all of them) would not stay unlocked longer than 2-3 seconds when I want to leave the vehicle. I have carefully coordinate pressing the unlock button on my key with actually opening the door. If I am not quick enough, I must repeat the action. This very clearly looks like a safety issue. And by now Honda knows this is not an isolated case. Will it require a minimum number of deaths or injuries because the occupant can't get out of the vehicle in time in case of an accident or fire, etc. ?? the cost for the replacement of the actuators should not be borne by the owners. ( up to 4 @ $400 each).

My grandson went to get out of the passenger front side of car. It would not unlock. He had to climb over to the driver seat to get out. The next day I went to open the trunk and it was lock. I do a lot of picking up of my grandchildren and I'm afraid that they will get stuck in the event of an accident. What a shame to have to worry about this and the cost I will have to incur.
