Have you asked the question on a Honda CRV forum? Maybe it's a common issue.

What causes frozen door locks?
Yes. Actually. And yes it is common. They even had a recall for gen 2 year but not the gen1.

Several possibles from bad actuators or wiring short in the boot between the door and the cabin. Or broken spring.

But it has been really friggin cold here and I am still layed up with Achilles' tendon surgery so I cannot work on the car right now.

More of s brand agnostic question of why the freeze. Where would the moisture be coming from and why?

In his case maybe the window rubber seals are leaking.

05r50--I have no idea...I don't own a Honda. But, I do know it has been cold. Below freezing actually. Maybe this is why it is freezing? I don't know...I am having trouble staying warm myself. Thank God for gin...
