Why won't my Honda 1998 crv replacement keyless entry unlock the hatch?
We had a 1999 and now have a 2003, neither of our keys have ever unlocked the hatch, not something we bother with so never found out.
If the keyless entry works on your other dooor(s) then electric lock motor may have failed. If it doesn't work on ANY doors, then the battery in the keyless remote has probably gone dead. If it is the electric motor, it is your decision if youwant to spend the money to repair it, or just get used to using the key to manually lock/unlock it.
