Question about 1992 Honda Accord
It has either rusted so the latch doen't move or you have a loose screw/bolt inside the door. It will be a $150 job if you take it to a shop (non-dealer) and about $225 if you take it to a dealer.
You can try spraying some oil in the door latch area (where the door latches to the door frame) and let it soak for a day (spray a couple of times). Use an oil that is not too thick. You can even use WD40. If it does let loose with WD40, oil it again the next day with something that is really an oil (WD40 is just an electrical contact cleaner and not intended as a long-term lubricant).
Also, you can try to take the door panel off. There are some videos on youtube.com that will walk you through the process. You may not find an accord specificallly but a civic or camry instruction will be close enough to get the idea. Then you will have better access to lube it or see if a screw came loose.
