    My Pilot 2003 has 3 doors that will not lock or unlock with remote or auto switch in the car. The dealer is asking $285 per door to fix. I can't spend nearly $900.

  • Anonymous Jan 03, 2009

    We're having the same problem. Dealer wants $65 for the door actuator part and $275 labor. So far I've found the part for $35 through a guy at Hondapilot.org and am looking to see if a regular garage can install it or even if it's something we can do.

    Driver's side has to be locked manually and the other doors will lock with the key fob, but none will open with the key fob. Changed the fuse and the battery to the key fob.

    same problem, they want 200-300 each door. any easier fixes??

    NONE OF MY DOORS WILL LOCK AUTOMATICALLY WITH KEY FOB. DEALER THOUGHT FROMT DOOR SWITCH WOULD WORK BUT IT DID NOT. WANTED $173 PER DOOR (MIGHT BE A BARGAIN) AND CHARGED ME $100 FOR REPLACING THE OLD SWITCH

    passenger side front and back door does not unlock wirelessly

  • cl84lib Apr 25, 2009

    Same problem, only driver's door... seems like actuator is dead... locks/unlocks with key all others then work fine with key fob...



    (I guess some parts just wear out faster than others... Car is 5.5 years old, and 82.5K miles!)



    Someone mentioned replacing the fuse on the door lock circuit and the battery on the key fob.... did that fix it? if the actuator is truly dead I don't see how... but hopeful...

It is because the door actuator is bad in those doors.

Replacements can be found at the dealership for around $60 or on Ebay for as little as $10. Number 5/24 in the diagram below. Actuator part # Left Side 72155-S5P-A11 & the Right side 72115-S6A-J01.

Expect to set aside at least 1-2 hours on the first replacement, lesser time on the ones afterwards. Be careful not to push parts in directions that they shouldn't be pushed in. Don't break any plastic parts/metal rods or connections - take your time.

1. Remove the plastic tab under the inner door latch.
2. Open the 2 small black colored screws.
3. Carefully swing the door latch attachment out by moving it down and out. Remove the rod and the electrical connection - there's a slot to press and pull-out.
4. Use a flat screw driver to carefully pry the window opening plastic area (its one piece and includes the cup holder). Remove the electrical connection - there's a slot to press and pull-out. Open the screw beneath the arm rest.
5. Use a flat tool (I used a metal putty 5-in-1 tool) to slide between the door metal and plastic areas - pull the plastic buttons/connections off, you'll hear them pop. Slide the door out.
6. Gently open the white plastic sheet about a quarter of the way from the top right down so you can reach in the actuator area (near the door latch - at the end of door with 3 screws). Remove the window guardrail, if its in the way - use a 3/8 bolt.
7. Use correct amount of force, without stripping them, open the 3 screws at the door latch.(Best to use a Handheld Impact Driver)
8. Take a good look at the connections inside. Disconnect the electrical connections (two of them) on the lock actuator.
9. Gently but forcefully (without breaking any plastic or other parts), push the metal connectors back and carefully remove the door lock actuator assembly from the door.
10. Replace with new actuator and assemble in reverse.

SOURCE: Door locks don't work

Disassemble the paneling on left side ,under the steering wheel. Remove all screws and pull out the panel until you can you can reach behind it to remove the two Black Relays, on the side closest to Steering wheel. Remove the Relay covers, Clean the contacts with a 1/8 fine strip of 600 wet/dry sand paper. Only place the paper between the contacts, and pull out while holding slight pressure on the relay Armature. Turn over the sandpaper and repeat once again. Very gently press the TOP resting contact pad closer to the armature, to lessen the gap between the contact points, so the armature doesn't have to travel as far to reach the closed contact position. Repeat the above with the other2nd Relay. Replace the covers, reinstall the relays And test the Door locks prior to buttoning up the paneling. Note, a pair of long needle nosed pliers will help in removing the relays. Just Grip the relay and rock in Forward and Backward as you apply upward pressure.

You will probably need to replace the power door lock actuator.

Here's a link to one similar to yours.

You can probably get a used one from a salvage yard.

2009 chevy equinox rear passenger door won't unlock with remote


Lock/unlock motor may be failing. Remove the door panel and remove the connector from the lock motor. Check the dc voltage at the connector while pressing the lock switch. If you see battery voltage, replace the motor. If the voltage is low, inspect the wiring.

2001 Mercury Villager keyless remote is malfunctioning


Keyless Entry
The keyless entry system consists of the following:
  • smart entry control(SEC)/timer module
  • keyless entry remote transmitters
  • power door lock actuators
  • body side door power door lock actuator
  • liftgate actuator
  • power door lock switches
  • door ajar switches
  • Principles of Operation
    All doors can be locked at once by turning the door key lock switch to the locked position. An individual door can be unlocked by moving the door key lock switch to the unlocked position and turning it again within five seconds; all the doors (including the liftgate) will unlock.
    The smart lock system is designed to keep the driver from locking his keys in the car. It will lock and then unlock all the doors if the smart entry control(SEC)/timer module detects the following conditions:
    • The ignition key still in the ignition.
    • A front door is open.
    • A door lock switch has been pushed to the lock position.
    The panic feature has a duration of 30 seconds from the last time the PANIC button is pressed. When locking the doors from the remote transmitter, the horn chirp/lamp flash feature can be disabled or enabled by holding the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons for two seconds. The hazards will flash three times to confirm that the feature has be enabled or disabled.
The control module probably see's an input that shouldn't be there . lock Switch , door ajar etc... Don't think it has anything to do with the remote . Some part stores have a tester to see if signal from the remote is working . Or the dealer ! Take it an see if your remote is sending a signal without you pressing any buttons .
If it is you need a new one .
