Car-Opening Techniques: 2006-2014 Honda Ridgeline

This month we will offer car-opening tool manufacturer's recommended techniques for opening the 2006-2014 Honda Ridgeline. The Ridgeline is equipped with shielded lock control linkage within the door.

Warning: The 2006-2014 Honda Ridgeline uses multi-layer weather stripping at the base of the window. Use a diluted mixture of dishwashing liquid and water to enable the car-opening tools to slide into the opening.

Be careful when you contact the lock buttons or the inside release handle. Too much force can result in scratching or marring the button or handle. Placing electrical tape over the tip of the tool can help protect the plastic controls.

The direction to rotate the driver's door lock plug to the unlocked position is counterclockwise.

The following opening methods can be used to unlock the 2006-2014 Honda Ridgeline:
