Honda civic EX 2001 4doors, the driver door lock is not working. I can't lock the door not with the remote not with the key not with the lock from inside the car, the lever is NOT going down when you push it down. How can i lock my car door?? Any idea what's the problem here.
If there is nothing jammed in the barrel, you will need to pull apart the lining of the interior of the door, disconnect the power motor for that switch, then see if it locks by key, sounds like the motor is seized, of out of allignment, easily fixed with a second hand or reco motor, or witha simple adjustment. Good luck, hope it helps.

Most likely the latch itself has failed. Open the door panel and first check to see if unlock signal is getting to latch connector. If yes, replace latch. If no signal, the problem is more likely in the control module.
I used to install power locks on cars. Lets see if I can help...
Take off your door panel, find the small rod that is connected to the door lock itself (the part that actually shows if the door is locked or not) There should be an actuator of some sort connected to the small rod that pushes back and forth when you hit the lock button. This may have popped off or is loose/bent...
Or, There may be module inside the door that controls your locks either way, pop off your door panel and see what you got!
hi there you say you have had the lock changed do you mean the key hole or the door closure part of the lock?
if you changed the key part its the main lock that's faulty and the reveres is true ,
if the remote is working on one door it is not the remote that's the problem.
i hope that this has been helpful regards John
OK - the master switch is the switch panel on the drivers door that controls every lock and window of the car.
If you are pressing LOCK and all the doors LOCK except the driver's door - the Locking Actuator's Solonoid has failed.
You cannot replace just the solenoid - the entire thing is replaced as a unit.
It looks similar to THIS....

The remotes 'die' after a few years of use. I have a 98 EX and am currently on the third remote. However, before you go and locate a new one, you need to know that part of programming the new remote requires the original sound system which has a button that has to be pressed and held to cycle the new remote so it will work with the door locks.
I have the same problem. The battery in the remote was replaced, still cannot operate lock. I can operate the balance of the door locks from the inside, except for the drivers side. I manual have to push or pull the door lock.
sounds like the drivers side key switch has failed remove the interior door panel and there will be a switch attached to the back of the key lock cylinder or around there it should be two or three wires also check the door jamb wire harness where the door closes for any broken or damaged wires, use a vot meter and see if you get power or ground to the opposite side of the switch when you use the key to lock and unlock the door if nothing changes and there is power or ground! at this switch i would replace it, i don't think there is one but if the car has a passenger side key hole try to unlock the car from that side and see if you get the same problem -jeff
