I doubt the door will open when the car is moving. But the door lock issue is probably the sensor in the door latch.

I've heard it can be done with some difficulty. You'll probably have to remove your rear seats, or at least the bottom seat portion, to get the inside panel off. Usually, the easy fix for troublesome door locks is a good cleaning, and a little light oiling. That one on the rear should be checked for operation when you get to it.

If you open the back door and look at locking mechanism on the door, you will notice a small lever which stops doors locking from inside you need to move it up or down and try the door opening from inside. will be easy if you wind the window glass down. .this feature is for the safety of children non adults' accidently opening the door.

Car alarm won't shut off.


Lot's of things can make it do it but with the drivers door window open. close and lock all the doors. ( said close the doors as in open them and close them back and make sure they close good ) Once all locked up unlock the drivers door with the key twiced once unlocks the door the second time it unlocks all the doors and the thrid time it'll unlock the hatch too. If it does'nt and the alarm is still going off open the hood and close and lock all the doors again. disconnect the battery, ( the alarm will certainly stop then), With the battery disconnected and all the doors closed and locked, put the key in the ingtion and turn it to run ( nothing will happen as the battery is disconnected ) This next part is important. The batterycables should be clean anyway but if their not they need to be clean for the next operation. With them clean put the positive on first and tighten it down now put the negiative onlike you mean it ( don't let it bounce and connect it. The alarm should'nt be going off as the car has the key on. Reach in and start the car ( I did'nt say open the door). with it running it should'nt be alarming either. Turn the key off and remove it them open the door and get in and restart the car itshould be back to normal.. Most of the time one of the door switches said to the computer that it was opened as it was supposed to be locked or it was opened after it was supposed to be locked and you left.

I got locked INSIDE my 2001 Lexus LX470 today. I


This is the anti theft function working as it should. Your husband needed to override it with the key. The command told the car to lock down. Because the key was not in the car the anti theft set off the alarm and locked down the engine as well.
This is exactly what you would want the car to do if you left it locked on the street with your windows down while shopping. Otherwise someone could reach in the window, unlock the door, slide in and start hot wiring the car.
These lock functions are programmable and can be changed at the dealership.

Hi, Somehow the boot of the car has locked


All locking and unlocking is done through the switch on the drivers door lock. Put the key in the drivers door and lock and unlock several times. See if the boot opens then.
Or make sure you haven't hit the lockout button on the drivers door that stops anyone else from opening their doors. (Including the boot.)

My Honda CR-V EX 2005 doors lock by themselves. Occasionally, after you unlock it with the remote key, it locks itself before you can get in. It also happens sometimes when I unlock the car, then open the...


They all do it, its part of the security system that all the doors lock after a minute or so from unlocking if you don't open the driver's door.
It prevents you from accidentally unlocking the car door while walking away and clicking the remote in your pocket, the car re-locks on its own.
If you open with the remote then open only the rear door, the other doors all lock and when you close the rear the alarm goes off.
What fun we have!
