    I have a 2007 CRV and found p/n 72150-SWA-A01 online. Does anyone know if that is the complete part/unit? Mine makes a grinding sound when you try and lock with the remote or when you hit a certain speed.

The lock actuators have a worm-drive gear, that are probably worn.

Remove door panels, use bearing grease to lube up everything inside the door.

Spray WD-40 (or similiar) on the parts you can't reach with your hands.

It sounds like the door lock actuator at the latch is worn out.

Drivers door will not open with key or battery hand piece,,other doors okay with both. 2002 crv


-If the problem is that keyless remote does unlock or lock door, but the lock lever still move when pulling up and down by hand. Door still open and close with both inner and outer, then might the driver door lock actuator is bad. The actuator lock and unlock the door for you when using the keyless remote or door lock/unlock switch.

-if you try using the key to unlock door and the key doesn't turn the door cylinder, then you have a bad door lock cylinder.

-if the lock lever doesn't move up or down and you can't open door using any handle, then you got a bad lock latch assembly.

I'm not sure what the issue is but hope this helps you.

  1. You have to hit your unlock button a second time to unlock the other doors. If you know this and are, and it's only the one door that's not working, then you need a power door lock actuator replaced. It's attached to the latch inside the door and unlocks and lock the door.
  2. Not sure what a burring sound is, but if you're describing what it sounds like then it could be the A/C clutch, but you also have to remember that you should notice the RPMs on a CR-V drop about 500rpm when the A/C compressor clutch engages. That's normal. If it's making a funny sound, you need to have a Honda dealer check it out, they will know for sure if it's normal or not.

My 2003 Honda CRV ...drivers side door does not lock with fob. All other doors lock. When I lock the drivers side door with the key, it won't unlock with the fob.


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.

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!

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
