You didn't mention if the inside release works. Typically there are little rods and levers involved and something comes loose. If you find a rod off, do something, as it will want to pop off again, only sooner. Sometimes you find broken plactic and you need to get a new part.

It is annoying to get into the door if neither inside or outside will release the door.

Some doors are affected by pulling on a lever, near the time unlock button was pushed... If lock, and unlock )with no levers being pulled (by you)) does not release it, surgery is next step.

Drivers side door closed and will not open.


Remove inner door latch and try operating the rod manually (vice grips). If locked, spray everything inside the door with WD-40 or the like and try operating the lock.

I've got a '91 Honda Accord and began having problems with the drivers side door lock. The lock will turn to close but not open with the key. When I open it normally from the inside the lock won't go all...


assuming you don't have power door locks then your problem is either a seizing tumbler or bent rod

either case you have to strip the interior door skin to diagnose

1998 honda accord driver side door won't open inside or outside but it can lock and unlock.


The lock / unlock operations are performed either electrically or manually directly on the solenoid installed on each door, and has nothing to do with the opening mechanism. In all probability, the metal rod that goes up from the door latching mechanism to the outside and inside handle, has become unattached / dislodged from the unit. This requires taking down the inside of the door panel, in order to reach the latch, and its operating rods. Look elsewhere on Fixya, for instructions on how to dismount the door panel. I think i provided instructions for this in the past.

Drivers Door Lock Problem


Press the passenger side door lock button. if the driver side door unlocks now but wont unlock when you hit the driver side door lock button, it is usually a network communication problem with the B CAN or a faulty Body Control Module.
