Honda introduced the four-track external sidewinder lock mechanism for the 2002 Honda CR-V. The key has six cuts. The door lock uses one full-sized wafer tumbler and seven half-sized wafer tumblers. This driver’s door lock, ASP part # D-19-125, fits the 2002-06 CR-V; 2003-05 Civic; 2002-11...

The ASP Honda Door Lock was coded to a key. I disassembled the lock and removed the eight wafers. I used the ASP Honda Keying Kit to code the lock to the provided key. No replacement parts are required if the lock is disassembled and reassembled.
I photographed the old lock’s disassembly to ensure the correct replacement wafers. To determine the proper wafer depths, I read the stamped numbers where available or compared the old and new wafers. I loaded one wafer at a time and used the owner’s keys to check. This door lock is double-throw, meaning adjacent wafers load from top and bottom. I carefully loaded the wafers as they do not snap into place and will fall out when inverted.
Once the one full-sized wafer tumblers and the seven half-sized wafer tumblers were inserted, I inserted the key and made sure no wafer tumblers extended from the plug. The combinated plug was installed into the housing. The plug fits in one direction. The weep hole in the plug aligns with the tab cutout in the housing. The weep hole is along the bottom of the lock. If the plug is inserted 180 degrees out, the plug will not slide completely into the housing.
I removed the plug and lubricated it with a lithium-based grease to help insure operational longevity.
The door lock was inserted into the area of the opening. It did not want to slide in easily. I inserted the operating key into the keyway of the door lock through the opening in the handle. This allowed me to adjust the position of my arm and hand to slide the door lock into the opening in the handle assembly.
I slid the wire retaining clip into the opening and with a bit of jiggling of the key to reposition the lock, I was able to slide the clip into position, securing the lock.
All four use the GM Z-Keyway system and the “Circle Plus” transponder system. All can be programmed with the standard GM on-board programming procedure, which takes 30 minutes.
The transponder programming for the Grand Prix is a little odd, so you need to pay particular attention to the section in this article on programming.
DETERMINATORS are available for most years and models of domestic vehicles.
