Hi there! I have a 98 CRV LX AWD with power door locks, but no remote. I don't believe that it came standard with a remote, but I would like to install one. Does anyone know what parts I need and/or how to install them? A tech friend and i wonder if I need a whole remote kit, since it already has power door locks..... I can probably do the job, if I just knew what to do. Thanks!

Re: 98 CRV LX AWD - - - Install a Remote Key Fob
The easiest way to add remote entry is to get an alarm system or remote car starter off of ebay. you have to be pretty good at wiring to install them but they do come with directions. you will need the wireing diagrams of your car also. if you are not very confident in wiring you can have them installed for one or two hundred dollars at a sterio shop.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

you may need to replace the door locking actuator, they do tend to go bad over times. does the driver side door lock automatic when using the lock button on the driver side. if you can lock and unlock the driver side door with a switch, my guess would not be the locking actuator, it might be in the remote locking module.
the circuit boards on those factory remotes, sometime break where the battery is clipped in, check to make sure the solder is holding the clip properly and it is not loose, also they remote may need to be programmed to the vehcile with a scan tool, usually only found at GM, Also the rubber part of the remote on the inside where the pad touchs the circuit board, uses a small screwdriver and touch the exposed circuit, if the remote locks the doors, try putting in tiny peice of alumumn tape of the inside pad, the connectiveness of the rubber wears off. If not try above or dealer.
Yes, insure that you have power to the trunk lock inside trunk, If not could be lose/broken wire or shot fuse. I am sure the key fob does work for the doors? If not have key fob battery replaced. Also, a quick check on power to trunk lock, check to see if have remote power button inside car, if it works power is good. Defective key fob would then be indicated.
i think you should cycle the key on-off-on-off like 8 or ten times ending in on position, the locks will cycle and then press a key on the remote, the locks should cycle noting it programmed the remote, and do another or turn the key off. then try it
1) remote starter was not hooked up to the factory arm wire
2) trunk release was programmed to disarm factory alarm before popping trunk
3)parking light wire on remote starter was not hooked up
4)disarm wire from remote starter was not hooded up
5)this is not normal and they should fix the problem or have it done by some one else and have them pay for it, how much did they charge,
Bring it over I'll fix it right and not charge overpriced amount
Just get in your vech , close all doors. Using your power lock switch , lock all doors. After doors are locked take your Ignition Key and insert it and remove it from ignition switch in a slow fashion , but consitant pace. (97 and earlyer are fast) When you see the hazzard lights flash, put key in ignition switch and turn to the On postion .. Do NOT CRANK or you will have to Start over .. After in the On postion .. Hit the Lock button on remote... Hazzard lights should flash..( note..you have to reprogram all remotes when adding a new one , if you don't your old remotes will not work ) If your doing just the one , turn igntion switch off and unlock door and get out and try it. If you are doing more than one. While still in Vech with Key on . After you hit the Lock button on Remote and hazzard light flashed .. with key still on .. use master lock switch unlock doors and relock and then hit Second Remote, Lights should flash again , repeat if adding a 3rd remote.. after done just turn key off and unlock door and get out and try. Good Luck :)
there are 3 possibilities that I would check first. 1: make sure the contacts on the door, and body where the touch are clean. the lock and unlock signal are sent through these. 2: You may try replacing the battery in your key fob. 3: the power lock motors may have gone bad. To check, lock the doors with the drivers door panel, if they lock, they are fine. Another solution may be to recode your key fob. procedure for coding the fob to your vehicle can be found online.
