I have a CVT EX with Smart Entry and I'm trying to follow the instructions in the owner's manual on p. 112 to make all doors unlock whenever the driver's door is open.

Step 1 says

Apply the parking break. CVT: Move the shift lever out of P with the break pedal depressed.


I cannot move the shift lever unless the car is running, but it doesn't say to have the car running. If I do try this with the car running, I get the three blinks at the end but it does not have the desired effect -- still when I open teh driver's door, teh rear doors remain locked.

What am I doing wrong?

Is that not the default setting?

Sorry, can't help you with following the instructions, but just thought I remembered that one being marked the default setting.

Thanks, @aatx. So when you open the driver's door from the outside of the car, does it unlock the other doors?
That's what I'm after.

Opening the drivers door only opens the drivers door. Opening the passenger door opens all the doors. The options for the driver is double clicking the unlock on the key fob, or pulling the unlock tab on the inside of the drivers door.

No. Pretty sure it's only opening it from the inside handle that unlocks the other doors.

Did you ever figure out how to get this done?

Did you ever figure out how to do this? I just got my HR-V and I am trying to figure out how to do this.

The quoted instructions, in addition to misspelling "brake" do not describe the process correctly. Note that opening the driver's door of a locked car from the outside unlocks the driver's door only. Opening the passenger door unlocks all doors. I intensely dislike cars that lock automatically, so I reprogrammed the doors not to do so. If I want the doors locked, I push the lock button on the door.

Here are pages 111 and 112 from the Owner's Manual:





With the ignition ON, if necessary, move the shift lever to N, then apply the parking brake, put it in park, and turn off the ignition. Then follow the instructions in the owner's manual. I just went out to the car and went through this to confirm that everything works as described.

Here are text-only instructions from Matt Castrucci Honda: Programming and Customizing Your Honda Vehicle

Program doors to unlock when you turn the car off

2. While pressing the brake, move the shift lever out of Park.

4. Within five seconds, turn the ignition to the lock (0) position.
