Driver's side door lock won't accept key but after 5-10 attempts will. Security key fob will not lock/unlock driver's side lock - but will work everywhere else. -
We started having problems with the drivers side door lock at about 70,000 miles (hard to get key into door lock), had it checked out by Honda, and repairs made. I don't recall specifically what was done, but it started happening again after about a year. Now it's both the drivers and passenger doors. We have little faith in our local dealers maintenance department and was hoping for some insight and relief via the internet. It's very annoying, especially if you need to get in the car quickly. -
Cannot put the key in the driver side door lock -
When locked, My 2003 CRV cannot be unlocked with my key. It goes in,but cannot turn the key. I can get in the car by opening the rear door and climbing into the car. This problem happened in 2007 and the dealer fixed the locks as it was under warrantee. When I recently went to the dealer, he said he would have to have a locksmith look at it as the dealer cannot fix it. He said the car was nine years old and that the metal used in the locks is soft and often breaks down. I think they just don't want to be bothered. I am hoping to call HONDA and suggest they have a recall. DM Philadelphia -
It started with the passenger door lock - it just automatically locks by itself and hard for people to open the door from inside or outside. Now, the driver's side and the back doors are not locking properly. I have a 2007 Honda CRV. -

This is the second time that the driver side door lock will not work with the key. The first time I had the lock replace for $100. Now the dealer wants $200 to replace the tumblers. The tailgate lock is also "stuck" and has been since the first lock problem, but I can live without it. I am going to check on having a remote system installed since the locks work fine with the interior electronic switch. -
