Question about 2009 Honda Pilot

Open Question

My 2009 Honda Pilot's trunk doesn't open. the little button that pops up after you unlock the car manually or via FOB won't engage and so the trunk sticks. then sometimes while driving, the dome light will come on and the trunk open indicator flashes as if the trunk is open. when checking it, it is open but still locked because of the lock, so you have to end up pushing it down. i already took it to a dealer, they tested it, they inspected it but could not find anything. help!

sounds like the drivers side key switch has failed remove the interior door panel and there will be a switch attached to the back of the key lock cylinder or around there it should be two or three wires also check the door jamb wire harness where the door closes for any broken or damaged wires, use a vot meter and see if you get power or ground to the opposite side of the switch when you use the key to lock and unlock the door if nothing changes and there is power or ground! at this switch i would replace it, i don't think there is one but if the car has a passenger side key hole try to unlock the car from that side and see if you get the same problem -jeff

SOURCE: 2004 Honda Accord Euro. Central

I am a mechanic and had the same problem with a 2005 Acord that I purchased couple of months ago. Contact through the trade provided little help. The problem arose during a week that we in Adelaide, South Australia had a record o 40+ degrees centigrade heat. I noticed the drop knob slightly moving when the immobiliser was activated, but the drivers door failed to lock. Key locking would lock all doors however.
The cost of a door actuator from a Honda dealer was $185.00 (Aus), about $250 (US). The spare parts guy told me they had them in stock and sold a number of them. As a result I decided to find out whether the actuator was in fact faulty. I susequently removed the door lock and actuator assembly from the door. (A fiddly type job). The actuator assembly is in a plastic sealed assembly. By using a lot of patience and a box cutter I was able to cut around the assembly and then carefully lever the plastic housing apart. This revealled the small electric motor (similar to a slot car motor) that drove a worm and wheel assembly and a system of cams that actuated the door lock system. I found on dismantling the electric motor that the armature was coated with grease from the wormwheel /cam assembly that is mounted above the motor when installed in the vehicle. I cleaned the armature and brushes using superfine wet and dry carborundum paper, undercut and cleaned out the two armature segments of all remaining grease with a solvent. The motor was then tested with 12 volts and found to be ok. I then reinstalled the motor and glued the housing back together. It now works fine. I believe the housing was either initially overfilled with lubricant or that the high ambient temperature caused the grease to melt and flow into the elecric motor contaminating the motor. (There is no seal between the gearbox and the electric motor). The job took a few hours from start to finish but I saved the cost of purchasing the part and didn't let it beat me.

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 Honda Accord Key Fob will not unlock doors or trunk when pressed when coming up to car


I got the same problem with my 09 Accord. I think because of the FOB case designed is not solid enough, its too flexible to lose contact on the battery inside. Every times I got the problem, I just open the fob and rearange the battery inside and put it back together, this wroked for a few weeks and then back to the same old problem again. (when you grab and turn on the engine, noticed how the fob case is so flimsy ! that's what happen and in times the battery will lose contact). HONDA BAD KEY FOB DESIGN.

Trunk won't open


Lower the back seat and crawl into the trunk and see what the latch is doing when you activate the key fob. the trunk lid will have to be open to enable any repairs. Also an emergency release cable is probably visible (yellow handle) inside the trunk and will Open the trunk lid.

I have a 96 jetta, and my trunk release button doesn't work. how do I fix it. Plus I put the key in the trunk to open it, its always worked, now it doesn't. I need my trunk, I have a small child...


The trunk release rod is made of plastic and it is adjustable, it came apart. You have to fold down the back seat, remove the trunk lid liner and pull on on the plastic piece connected to the latch mechanism on the deck lid. It is a little difficult but is the only way to get in. You can buy the plastic piece from V.W. its cheap. When you install the new piece, use a screw driver to close the latch and try to open it with your key fob or button, this way you won't shut it and not be able to open it because it is not adjusted properly. there should be very little play (movement) between pod and latch if adjusted correctly. The rod connects to a vacuum pod for the key fob to operate the trunk remotely. good driving

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

Having problem with the beeper for my honda pilot 2004 its not the bateries can't open the dors with beeper..


In the case the battery was drained in the keyfob - try reprogramming it.
Here are the instructions.

The process is pretty easy....1st) get in the vehicle and close all doors, windows, hood, and trunk.
2nd)put the key in the ignition and turn it to the second position...while in that position (w/out starting) push the lock button on the good key fob you already have. (if you don't already have a good fob, then press the lock button on the new key fob) (do this all w/in 5 seconds)
3rd)turn the key off
4th) turn the key on to the second position and press the lock button on the fob.
5th) turn the key off
6th) turn the key on to the second position and press the lock button on the fob.
7th) turn the key off.
8th) turn the key on to the second position and press the lock button the the fob.....the press the unlock button on the fob..........Now press the lock button on the new fob...press the unlock button on the new fob....
9th) tun the key off.....remove the key from the ignition and test to make sure that the new fob and the old fobs both work now.

I have a 2009 Altima with the push-button ignition and the proximity sensor key fob. Great concept, except the buttons on the fob are constantly being set off unintentionally. Stuff in my pocket, leaning...


My Nissan 2009 Altima is doing the same thing and most of the time the key stays in a drawer. The dealership says they never heard of it. I suggested they just google the issue; it seems to be a problem for a number of years. They say they are going to test my keys for signals next week; will let you know. But doors unlocking, windows are opening and trunk is opening all randomly.

But a used 2006 solara but key fob does not remotely open trunk. Any suggestions?


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.
