The door latch assembly has locked . this is come times caused by bad connection or broken wiring . . try unpluging the unit for 5 min then repower and see if it will open . if not take the 3 screws out of the bottom panel and remove . you can now reach up inside and there is a pull string that will release the lock. this will get you in .. and you will have to replace door latch . mm hope this helps . .

You should be able to feel the lock disengage. Also feel the latch moving. If you can feel this, then the door is jammed, not the lock or handle. They do swell. You'll just have to force it open. You might try spraying some lube at the top and bottom, where you suggested it feels stuck.

2000 civic drivers door will not open

Can you roll down the window, disconnect the battery, then unlock the door with the key or from inside and open the door ?
You could have a short in the wiring for the electric lock, or a problem with the latch inside the door.

Kwikset door lock jams inside and out.

Is sounds like the door settled or shifted and jammed the bolt in the jamb. I would put a pry under the door and gently lift while turning the key. That is only for the up and down but could be that the door needs to be pushed in or pulled out while turning the key. If you want to get real crazy just pop it off the hinges and investigate. If the lock still does not work with it free from the jamb then you will just have to replace the lock.

2004 model - locks jammed

It sounds like the latch on your door is in the closed position. to fix this, first make sure that the door is unlocked, then pull on the door handle( as if you are trying to open the door) then at the same time using your finger or a pencil open the latch on the door. (try closing the door)
