I had the same problem with my daughters 97 Civic. A poorly cut new key was lodged in the ignition. I did a combination of things: WD-40 (Not too much) That did not work. Then out of desparation I applied cold ice packs to the key while at the same time using daughter's blow dryer to heat up the ignition slot. My theory being maybe I could possibley shrink and insulate the key with cold while expanding the ignition slot with hot air. Did it several times without success and just when I thought my theory would not work; lo and behold daughter reached over from the pasenger side (Car in neutral) and pulled out the stuck key out!

Maybe I just got lucky but it's worth a try before you pay a locksmith or dealershipt to fix it.

Lesson learned: Have your Honda dealership cut your spare keys!

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.

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.

The flashing green key icon when turning off your car? Ignition security system, requires chipped key to start. It's sort of like the GM and Ford flashing red light to announce the security system is active.
