  1. 2009 CRV hatch and read drivers side door

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    My hatch won't unlock nor will my drivers side rear door. I'm assuming it must be an actuator problem but is there anything else that could be causing it? Is the hatch lock somehow connected to the rear drivers side door? All three of the other doors work fine thanks for you inout
