2003 Honda pilot right rear door lock won't open from the inside only

About 2 months ago i could not open my right rear door from the inside of the car, no problem from the outside. I checked the child safety lock and it seems to be functioning properly judging only by looking/flipping on the left side rear door. Flipping the child safety lock on/off does not fix the problem. I am not sure if it is the child safety lock malfunctioning or if it is the door itself malfunctioning since it works from the outside just fine.

    When I popped off the panel I found this small plastic piece that hooks the unlock rod to the inside pull handle was broken. All else is functioning properly. Problem solved.

    Hi, I may have the same exact issue in my pilot. May I know where you get the replacement part? or do you know the name of that broken plastic hook part

    I haven't got a chance to open the panel, but I believe the problem is same like yours. The handle feel light (feel like not hooked to anything) when being pulled. And guess what, it is also on the right side rear door of 2003 Honda Pilot.

    I know this is a very old post. Hopefully you see this

It sounds like the child safety lock has broken some how or the handle has come undone from the latch inside the door the inside panel will have to come off to confirm that.

SOURCE: 2003 Honda Pilot Rear door lock not working

If the driver door lock actuator fails the rest of the locks won't work. Also the automatic headlight switch won't turn them off and your battery runs down. It's fairly easy to fix the actuator but it is a little tedious. The actuator costs about $75 at the Honda dealer and about $50 online. If you're not sure how to do this get a manual for the car or pay the dealer. There are a lot of connectors inside the door and several linkages so you have to be careful, patient, and don't force things apart. When you do it right everything comes apart pretty easy.

2003 Honda pilot door locks and remote not working


There is a small electric motor inside the actuator assembly that has probably "burned out". Same problem with my 03 pilot. The remote would not lock the other doors or arm the security system unless you physically locked the driver's side door. Eventually my passenger side burned out as well. Fixed it myself pretty easily. Cheap fix too. works like new now. http://www.ebay.com/itm/120935451126?var=420082237231&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

First off you should disconnect the battery to prevent blowing any fuses.
Then remove the inside door panel to give you access to the parts.
Nine out of ten times as soon as you get the panel off so you can see inside the problem is evident. A good flashlight can help.
Take any bad parts to the parts counter guy and get replacements.
Re-install, put the panel back on, and reconnect the battery. You should be set to go then.
Check your shop manual to see if your car's computer is a type affected by disconnecting the battery and follow their recommended steps.
