Your car uses a transonder key, a key with a small chip embedded inside. The transponder is matched to the immobilizer unit in your car. When the key is inserted into the ignition, the immobilizer searches for that transponder, if it's not near the ignition, the car will just keep turning over and not start. Your only real options are to replace the steering lock or buy a transponder bypass unit, which I do not recommend. Just do a google search.

If it is a factory keyless system than you do need it done by the dealer, but if it is an after market system then reply back with manufacture and model.

SOURCE: the lock button on my key fobs will not lock the doors on 06 honda crv

CHeck to see if it is the right battery - Should be a CR1616 - previous year models, had a different battery.

Does the light come on on the key fob, when you push the button?

You may have to reprogram the remote - check the owners manual for instructions - if you can't find them...

Programming the Transmitter
• The system accepts up to three transmitters. The
transmitter codes are stored in a stacking-type
memory. If a fourth transmitter code is programmed,
the code for the first transmitter is erased.
• Entering the programming mode cancels all learned
transmitter codes, so none of the previously
programmed transmitters will work. You must
reprogram all of the transmitters once you are in the
programming mode.
• You must complete each step within 4 seconds of
the previous step to keep the system from exiting the
programming mode. Program the transmitters within
10 seconds.

1. Turn the ignition switch to ON (II).
2. Press the "Lock" or "Unlock" button on one of the
transmitters. (An unprogrammed transmitter can be
used for this step.)
3. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0).
4. Repeat steps 1, 2, and 3 two more times using the
same transmitter used in step 2.
5. Turn the ignition switch to ON (II).
6. Press the "Lock" or "Unlock" button on the same
transmitter. Make sure the power door locks cycle
to confirm that the system is in programming mode.
7. Within 10 seconds, press the "Lock" or "Unlock"
button on each transmitter. Make sure the power
door locks cycle after you press each transmitter
button to confirm that the system accepted the transmitter's code.
8. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0) to exit programming mode.

IF so, and more likely, the fuse on the car side of the remote, is probably gone.

Retrain the fobs following the procedure in your owner's manual:

4. Press and hold unlock on the door lock switch.
5. While holding the door lock switch in the unlock position, insert and remove the ignition key twice. Do
not rotate the ignition lock cylinder.
6. Insert the ignition key a third time leaving the key in the ignition lock cylinder. The ignition must remain
in the LOCK position for the rest of the procedure.
7. Release the door lock switch. You will hear three chimes. This chime feedback indicates that transmitter
programming is active.
8. Press and hold the lock and unlock buttons at the same time on the keyless entry transmitter for 12

Central locking

To re programme your key if your fob has three buttons is as follows. Turn the ignition key in quick succession from off to ignition on 4 times. You should hear a chime to indicate programme mode. Quickly remove the key and press the lock button followed by the unlock button. Wait until you hear the chime again and see if the fob works. If it does not operate the central locking, see if you can open the tailgate with the fob, I guess you have a three button remote? If it doesn't, repeat the above but quicker!! it should programme quite easily. When you checked the fuse, did you take it out? I suggest you remove the fuse and wait 30 seconds and put back in, get someone in the car to see if any doors respond to you replaceing the fuse. recheck the fob operation and the key, this maybe the answer.
