  1. 2G Back Door Locks intermittent

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    2017 w/80,000mi. Love the truck. Don't love that both back doors in the last few weeks are not locking. I noticed when recently I wasn't able to open back door when others were locked. Unfortunately the same is true. When coming back from the store the back door did not lock like the...
  2. Leer cap locks work opposite of vehicle

    2G Accessories, Performance Parts & Modifications
    I recently purchased a 2017 RTL-E that came with a Leer cap, model 100XL. Its nice that I am able to lock and unlock the cap with the fob. Just one problem, when the truck is locked, the cap is unlocked and when the truck is unlocked, the cap is locked. This seems very strange to me and I just...
  3. Pop & Lock Painted Kit

    2G Accessories, Performance Parts & Modifications
    I've read where some owners weren't too sure about whether to paint their lock kits. I used and got very good results. I won't be installing the lock kit until about April. I'm sure the paint match is very close. I'll know better in the sunlight, etc.
  4. 2007 RTS Dashboard Ligts Won't Dim

    First Generation Ridgeline (1G 2006-2014)
    About a month ago the courtesy lights and dashboard lights changed. When you press the remote unlock button, the dash lights come on, the overhead courtesy lights do not. During the day, the dashboard lights are on and are bright. If you try to dim the dashboard lights by rolling the dash...
  5. Walk Away Lock not activating on RTL

    2G Audio, Bluetooth, Electronics & Navigation
    So I like my new Ridgeline RTL, but I thought it would lock the doors without action when I leave with the key in my pocket. It says it will beep if you stay close to the door and after about 8' will lock. Not my RTL. I looked in the manual and it says configure in the multifunction screen...
  6. Water getting into the locking compartment/mechanism.

    Just bought my Ridgline about 6 weeks ago and had the RetraxPro and a Bed Rug installed. Having problems with rain and snow melt getting down into the locking compartment and freezing up the lock. Basically completely filling the area. Can't use the cover at all until I can get it thawed out...
  7. Passenger door won't unlock when cold.

    1G Problems & Issues
    2006 Honda Ridgeline w/ Navi. When it is cold (around 40 and below) my passenger door won't unlock unless I do it manually. With the remote or the button on the door it won't unlock. Does anyone have any ideas? I would rather not take it to someone to fix. When warm the actuator seems to work...

  9. Dyno-lock installed on 2011 RTL

    1G Accessories
    I installed the Dyno-lock on my 2011 RTL. It was not an easy job. I have done lots of wiring and various installs in all my previous vehicles, I am a ham operator, so running wires and cables is not new for me. My son helped me, he also has lots of experience. On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being...
  10. Trunk lock latch not working - issue and resolution

    1G Problems & Issues
    I have a 2006 Honda Ridgeline RTL but this probably applies to all Ridgelines. A while back my truck electronic lock and latch quit working. The trunk would only open with the master key. I searched here and on the web but couldn't find a solution. Well today I found and fixed the problem and...
