  1. 98 Honda CRV ignition locked

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    Need some advice on ignition locked, key won't turn, something with the anti-lock system. Gave me a little trouble yesterday for the first time, but today won't turn at all. Read there was a recall in 2002, any help would be appreciated. H4fun
  2. Emergency latch if you're locked inside/no power/fob broken?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    A scary story in the news about a guy who was trapped in his 2006 car for 13 hrs until the neighbors found him and the fire dept. got him out. His key fob wasn't working and the electricity was dead, he wasn't able to unlock the doors from the inside...

    Problems & Issues
    My Fiance owns a 2009 CR-V EXL with roughly 165-170k on it. She commutes almost 100 miles round trip 4 days a week. Just this morning, both of her front brakes started grinding pretty bad when she left for work. She drove the car all the way to work then all the way home. I drove and...
  4. 2008 RR passengar door lock problem - Won't stay locked!!

    Problems & Issues
    Weird problem started a few days a go, my RR door lock doesn't always stay locked. Definitely mechanical issue, not electrical. Intermittently, the door locks would click; over several days I pinpointed it to the RR door; I could lock the doors with the fob, or while driving they doors lock...
  5. Locked Out

    Problems & Issues
    I'm considering buying an old 2003 CR-V with 240K miles for around $1900. It looks to be in good condition aside from the check engine light being on (the owner says it needs an O2 sensor). The other major issue: The owner says all four passenger doors do not unlock from the outside (with...

  7. Honda sensing on new CRV locked brakes to stop from hitting nothing.

    Dear Honda:
    I am a long time Honda driver but was pretty taken aback yesterday when I was driving down a four lane road with no vehicles in sight going about 40 mph. Suddenly, the Honda sensing beeping started, the brake warning flashed and seconds later the car locked up the brakes, came to a screeching...
  8. Locked tailgate on Mk2 exec auto

    Problems & Issues
    My tailgate door is locked and won't open either with the remote or with the key activating remote locking etc. The top window still opens on the remote. Any ideas? I called Honda Service and they could only suggest taking off the inside panel but with the door shut I think this would break the...
  9. 2009 CRV Alarm Goes Off When It's Locked. Help!

    Problems & Issues
    When we lock our CRV, the alarm goes off. There are many times when we come out of a store only to hear the horn blasting. Also of note, sometimes the horn honks if we lock it and other times it does not. Read somewhere that there can be a sensor issue. We have an appointment next week at...
  10. Key fob locked in car

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Yesterday I left the key fob in my CRV while I took care of my neighbors dogs. When I got back to the car it was locked! I ended up having to break a back window (it's a long story) so I could get my house keys and key fob. I've left the fob in the car before and tried to lock it and it didn't...
  11. Keeping doors locked

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Was going over the door locking and unlocking options in the 2017 ex-l. It seems that the passenger door can be opened from the inside when locked...and none of the electronic options seem to stop that. Can this be changed? possibly with a mechanical switch (like the old child-proof rear door...
  12. Red Blinking Light on the Odometer Panel for 2017 Honda CRV EXL Model while locked

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Hi all, I have recently got the 2017 Honda CRV EXL model. I am seeing a red blinking light when the vehicle is locked on the Odometer panel. Does anybody knew what is this for and does this represents any security system? Can you please let me know. Thanks SRK
  13. 2016 Honda CR-V EX locked itself after door had been opened

    Problems & Issues
    The following incident took place one night recently, as my wife was leaving work. The temperature was in the low teens or single digits. According to her report, my wife approached the CR-V, which was locked. She was carrying her key in her bag. She unlocked the passenger-side door by inserting...
  14. Car Radio Seems locked

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Help, I just purchased a used 2008 CRV and none of the buttons for the radio are working, except power and the manual volume knob (nothing on the steering wheel). It didn't come with a manual. I ordered one from Ebay but I'm still waiting on it. Is there some trick I'm missing. I plays one...
  15. How do I open a locked tailgate from inside ?

    Problems & Issues
    My wife's 2003 CR-V tailgate will no longer open off the central locking on the fob - it has been temperamental for the last few weeks and now just given up the ghost. There is no "clicking" sound from it so I am 95% sure that the actuator needs replacing. However, the door is locked and I...
  16. transmission issue (TC staying locked? or staying in overdrive maybe?)

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    test drove a 2000 crv and everything was fine. The drive home was also just fine until I was nearly home on a 45mph road. A light was red so I was slowing down but then it went green. I was down to maybe 25-30mph and as I pressed the gas pedal I was greeted by a shudder vibration feeling...
  17. Locked out from car, how to get in?

    Problems & Issues
    A few days ago my employees used my car (CRV 2008 or 2009 made in Japan) while I was out of town. Most likely they have forgotten to switch of some light inside the car which means the battery is dead now. Even worse is that I can not get into the car even manually with my car keys. It seems...
  18. Running my 12' CRV while locked

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    I was able to leave my company truck running with the keys in it, and use the key fob (I had a disconnecting key chain) to lock the doors once I was outside. I've tried to do that with my 12' CRV with no luck. I even tried to leave the car on and use my spare key to manually lock the doors...
  19. locked out, no battery, door key-lock is broken...

    Maintenance and Service
    Yikes! I am totally locked out. The ONE AND ONLY door key lock is not working. I mean the key goes in, turns freely, and NOTHING HAPPENS. The door lock does not disengage. I can hear what sounds like a wire flopping around inside the door when I rotate the key. I suspect the key lock...
  20. Tailgate won't shut on '06 CRV; lock stuck in locked postion

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    This afternoon I went to shut the tailgate on my '06 CRV and it bounced back with the lock stuck in the open position, not latching. I tried again and this time it was stuck in the closed position, and hasn't budged since. I have tried to manually move the lock and can't move it. I removed the...
