1996 Honda Civic Coupe Manual Doorl locks not working
The car came with copied keys. The keys will turn the ignition and unlock the drunk, but it will not lock and unlock the doors. The drivers door with the door is open, will not even let you push the lock to the locked position. It will, however, let you push the lock to locked with the door closed. The passanger door you can push the lock to locked with the door open & closed, just the key will not unlock/lock it from the outside. Anyway to fix this or what are the parts called that I need to buy to replace them?

Re: 1996 Honda Civic Coupe Manual Doorl locks not working
The driver door can not be locked with the door open on all Hondas. It's a feature to prevent people from locking the door and leaving the keys in the car. You can however slightly pull the door release lever open, and it will allow you to lock the door, so this isn't something you have to fix, it's the way the car was designed. The door locks may have been replaced at some time before you purchased the car, and that may be why the keys don't work. I would check with a locksmith to see what they would charge to make up a key, and also check with a Honda dealer about getting a replacement key. If you show proof of ownership (registration, title, etc) the can provide a key by using the cars vin to cut a new one. Of course, if someone changed the lock cylinders the key won't work. Check what the dealer would charge for a key (from what I've heard, they usually don't charge much, unless it's the key with a chip in it), then the locksmith. Your last option would be to change the lock cylinders yourself, but the cost of the parts, then pulling the door panels off would probably be my last choice to fix them. Good luck, and let me know the outcome!

The ignition switch for the civic is expensive. Auto Zone shows a new replacement ignition switch for a 2005 Honda Civic DX 1.7L MFI SOHC 4cyl listed at 455.99. This part also fits 21 other 1.7L MFI SOHC 4cyl Civic Models.
If you can find a low mileage Civic at the wreaking yard with the same switch as your model, that would save you money, but of course if one key is currently used for the door and ignition switch... you would have two keys after swapping out the switch. The old one for the door lock and the new (used) one for the ignition.
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.
They get sluggish over time. If you remove them, clean them, and grease them with a light grease; you can probably get them to work again. Ibet they work better when the car is funning, as the voltage is higher from the alternator as compared to the battery.
As for yhe window, you might try some window track lubrication in the tracks. The motor may also be getting tired.
Remember , these steps must be preformed within 5 seconds of eachother also all doors should be closed, radio and lights turned off
im not sure what you mean by a bypass, you can always just not use the remotes and go into the body control computer and turn off keyless entry
