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.

yes each door has an actuator. my guess would lead more towards the wiring than the actuator though. you will ave some time testing to see where the power ends and go from there.

This is something you have to remove the door panel to before you can say what it is. But I don't advise a DIYer doing it because its a little tricky. I recommend taking it to a body shop . They do this stuff in their sleep let them deal with it. If you try it and mess up then you have no door lock. This is not a big repair.

Driver side lock


the solenoid may be weak, or it can be lubed. you will need to remove the door panel and see how it works, and try to lube it, or see if there is any binding.

2001 Civic SI (EX american) remote lock problem


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....
