Question about 2004 Honda CR-V

1 Answer

Key stuck in Driver's side lock

My doors have to be opened manually with the key, and this morning (after a cold night) the key went smoothly into the lock, but then would not come out. We tried lifting it up and down, side to side- nothing would work. We were finally able to pull it out, but now keys won't go in. Is it possible that there's just a jam and grease can loosen it, or will the whole lock have to be replaced? Is this commong in CR-Vs?

Don't use grease ... it will attract and hold dirt that will soon kill the lock if you can get it to work now. Use graphite powder, it's the stuff.  I have kept a padlock working lke new with the stuff on a sailboat in the sub tropic salt water.  It comes in a small tube about 3 inches long ... and it will last you a lifetime of locks.  Graphite is the stuff ... but if you can't find it, use WD 40,  its; light weight and won't gum up the lock, but it's effects will wear off in a few weeks to months.
I haven't owned a CRV, but lock cylinders are all similar WRT graphite.

Same here. What I do is lock all doors using the button on the driver's door before opening the door, then open the driver's door and lock it manually. That seems to keep it disarmed. I believe it has to be the driver's door for this to work, but I don't know for sure.
