You may get lucky by spraying penetrating spray like WD-40 inside & all around the latch assembly on door. Use that little red nozzle to get around in behind as far as you can, as well as try to get it along back of sides as well. That will allow it to run down on linkage to locks etc & hopefully free things up & get them moving better. Once it's freed up again, give it a coat of white lithium spray grease and use tube same as you did with penetrating spray, to avoid/prolong repeat in near future. Let spray work a bit then start moving lock manually at first, then try using power after it feels easier, and then keep working both until power lock works good. Don't go crazy & overheat power lock motor, give it a few minutes after trying 5-10 times, before trying again.

Same as 2 dr, or a stick.
There are bezel screws that hold the plastic trim (pointing up towards the windshield), you nee to remove these 2 screws. The bottom section is clipped in. Tilt the steering wheel down as far as it will go.
Once you have the bezel off, there are 4 screws holding the cluster to the dash. Remove them and gently pull the cluster forward. Reach around (expect to get scraped knuckles) and unclip the speedo cable, and two large multipin connectors. Don't force anything.
Getting the cluster out after this point is a test of your patience. It only seems to come out one particular way.

Well, theres a sending unit/float in the tank that sends a signal thru
wires to your instrument cluster's fuel gauge. You should have an auto
electric repairperson determine where your problem lies. It's not often
the needle's just 'stuck' to where you could dislodge it. More often,
it's pegged overfull or underempty-signaling a shorted component
upstream of the gauge.
Similar problem and found the solution:
In the back of the gauge, where the 2 coils are located, there are very tiny copper wires which connect all the resistors/diodes. they each travel from within the coil and are soldered to 3 out of the 4 mounting pins. if any of these wires are shorting out or disconnected, the gauge will malfunction.
- take the gauge and flip upside down
- temp gauge has 1 resistor (blue) and 1 diode (copper)
- fuel gauge has 2 resistors, no diodes
- 1 wire should be attached to bottom mounting pin (letter E for EMPTY)
- 1 wire should be attached to pin holding both resistors (half tank)
- 1 wire should be attached to the stand-alone ground pin (no mounting bracket)
Hope that helps!

Have tranny serviced . Check tranny fluid level fill with HONDA ONLY fluid. If not fixed have fluid drained and filter replaced on tranny
