Hello and thank you for using FixYa!

Most likely the remote has failed. If you have another remote for the car, try it. All features should work on the spare remote. You will need to get another remote and program it to correct this. Here is a link on how to program it.

SOURCE: My 2003 Honda CRV ...drivers side door does not

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.

If it is a factory keyless system than you do need it done by the dealer, but if it is an after market system then reply back with manufacture and model.

Usually when you change a Fob battery you have to re-sync it to the car. Some cars have you lock and unlock the drivers door with the key.
Should be in your owner's manual.

This can happen If you have used the IGN. key to unlock the drivers door after you locked them from the fob. This can also be caused by a stuck button on the drovers door. Check the drivers door all buttons to see if any are stuck. If you do not have any stuck buttons. Try this, from inside the car, with out the car running, use the button on the drivers door to "lock all doors". Then use the fob to unlock them, then get out and press the lock button on the fob twice real quick. This should cause the drivers door to lock as the others. Hope this helps Fix Ya Up.

You should be able to just unlock the door with the key, and even if the alarm is still going of try to start it the key should override the alarm.
