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.

Something similar to that was happening with our Odyssey...the beeping when you are driving whether it's ongoing or intermittent is the "safety alarm" letting you know the door is not closed. The power lock is not engaging. What I do when I get the beeping while driving is hit the Door Close button. It causes the door to attempt to engage again. To fix it...we first cleaned out the space below the side running board (kids were hiding crayons and things in there), then looked for any obstructions along the top and bottom tracks. I sprayed a lubricant along the tracks (I'd suggest the dry lube kind...I used WD40 the 1st time and had streaks of it dripping down after driving), use a lube that has a long straw to spray in small places...and spray up into the track that runs the length of the middle of the car. Manually open and shut it a few times to get the tracks lubed, then try it out.
If you press the open OR close button by remote or in the car and get nothing...no movement/no noises/no beeping...then it could be the electrical circuit itself, the signal itself may be impeded...or the motor shot. Have you tried any of these suggestions before?

You will probably need to replace the power door lock actuator.
Here's a link to one similar to yours.
You can probably get a used one from a salvage yard.

There are two multiplex control units - one on the driver side and one onthe passenger side - which one did you unplug? The one on the driver side is the main "Brain" while the other one is the one that houses the keyless reciever. According to the service manual, any troubleshooting of this system must begin with the one on the driver side. It can get quite involved because Honda does not provide actual troubleshooting (symptom) charts, just descriptions of the electrical connectors and what conditions should be present at each conector pin under what system condition. (each pin has to be tested to determine what is malfunctioning) The system is not capable of outputting fault codes of any kind.
