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.

Good luck

I have a 98 accord and i cant open the driver door from the inside or outside ...what is the cheapest solution to getting this door open???


In all probabilty, the metal rod that runs from the outside handle down to the locking mechanism has become dislodged. This same rod also operates the inside door handle. Either that, or one of the plastic connecting levers to the same rod has broken. For this repair you will have to dismount the inside panel of the door. Search in this site for the steps to disassembling the panel. I think i wrote about it once.

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.

You're going to need to have 2 people for this. One of you is going to need to rapidly pull up on the outside door handle(kind of in a snapping fashion) and the other will need to push from the inside. Eventually this door will come open. Once this happens, replace the latch assembly. Any local salvage yard may have these.

The inside and outside door handles will not work on my wifes 1999 honda accord. The lock works but i cannot get the door to open. it feels like the handle isnt catching on anything.


latches are siezed and will require so help to open. try using a rubber mallet and tapping the outside door handle till it seems to have some resistance. you might have to tap alot. once the latch spring is in the right place then lock and unlock car to activate the clips and then pull handle. repeat untill door opens, then take door apart, remove latch and oil till all clips and spring move freely. Now put it all back together and it should work well.

It could either be the linkage inside the door popped off, or the outside handle is broke on the inside of the door. this is common with this car and is very fixable.
