Default 2003 Pilot EX-L Door Lock Issue

My 2003-Pilot now is approaching 60k Miles. The front passenger door lock
no longer responds to the keyless remote or the interior power open/close
buttons on the driver and front seat passenger doors. The only way to
lock/unlock this door is to manually use the latch inside or the key on the
front passenger door. This is real inconvience upon leaving the vehicle
when trying to activate alarm system.

Note: When using the actual key to lock/unlock the front passenger door, all
vehicle locks work as expected. Any thoughts on what is broken. Is this a
simple repair?

TIA,

RK

My advice: "Get it fixed".

------------------------------------------

The actuator has seized up due to contamination or it has a corroded
ground or corrosion inside it's connector. I don't see any 'door panel
removal sheets' here:
http://www.hondasuv.com/pilot/viewtopic.php?t=100
You could sign in and SEARCH to find detailed instructions on how to pop
off the door panel, or just DIY using the CR-V instructions which are
here, under 'tweeter kit':
http://www.hondasuv.com/crv/viewtopic.php?t=350
You'll need the exploded diagrams of the window 'guts' from
www.slhondaparts.com to see which one is the actuator, and you might
want to order your part from there once you determine if yours is shot
or just playing possum.
I've removed the 'latch' assembly from a CR-V and it's not a walk in the
park. The return spring inside the actuator was folded in half and
jammed. I had the Helms shop manual and it's still a three-handed job to
remove. Be especially careful to not change the effective length of the
rods (by screwing / unscrewing their threaded tips.

That said, you certainly can DIY, but check for the corroded connections
first. Always look for the obvious problem first.

So, what was the outcome? It's all about sharing.
