I have a 2004 Honda Civic LX Sedan. My problem with it is one, where you put the in to unlock the car,driver side, won't turn. I know the problem is the key lock cylinder itself, one of the tumblers wont...

To fix the tumblers, find a trusted locksmith. That's the way I'd go. Honda does have a kit, but, it's not a consumer one. You'd spend a decent amount of money on a kit that would fix hundreds of cars, so, that's why they won't sell it to you.

As for the key fob, have you tried putting a new battery in it? Your description is not very clear. The LX should have come from the factory with a key fob. So, if you got one, make sure it's the correct one with a good battery. To program it, put your key in the igntion, turn the key to position 2 (the position right before you start the car), press a button on the key fob, turn the key back to position 0, Repeat these steps over and over (about 4 to 5 times) until the doors lock/unlock. If that doesn't work, you could have a bum transmitter.

If some doors are not lock/unlocking, chances are bad doorlock acuators.

The driver's side door lock will not unlock using my ignition key for my 97 honda civic

Try lubing the lock cylinders with dry (never use wet lubes like WD40) spray comes in a little tube you just squeeze it and spray the dry lube into the lock to see if it frees up the lock cylinder. You can buy dry lock lube at any hardware store.

It could be a poorly cut key. Try dropping a dollar and having another key made. If that doesn't work, you will have to go to a Honda dealer and they can make a key from the vin#

Key can't open drivers side lock. only passenger side

The lock is not worn out, dirt has built-up inside because of the design of the key. The key is not open and self-cleaning like most keys, therefore, it push dirt and contamination into the cylinder. This results in burrs forming and blocking the key. I have had the driver side door cylinder replaced twice and repaired once. The passenger side cylinder has been repaired once and replaced once. Honda has been of little help. I've written them two letters and as a result, out of the kindness of their heart, they covered the replacement of the first cylinder on the passenger side. Recently, I contacted a local independent repair shop that I often use and, after talking to a Honda repair Mgr, they were able to take the cylinders in both doors out for cleaning and deburring for less than a third of the cost from a Honda shop. No new parts were required. Right now both locks are working fine.

Unable to open drivers side door with my key on a 2003 honda civi

Remove the doro finisher of your door.
Wirth a light, you should see a loose link rod between the key-lock and the door-lock. Just click it back in place.
If it is a zamac lock link, that's broken, you should replace the system

Door cylinder

The lock cylinder is held in by the chrome on the outside in the cylinder where the key goes in to turn it. from the inside if the door - the outer piece of the chrome (the ring) has a couple of 'fingers' that help hold it on - push it off from the inside so you can reuse it. you should be able to push the cylinder out from the door now.
