Honda Accord Problem Report

Honda Accord Driver's Door May not Open

(84 reports)

The driver's door latch assembly can break internally, which causes the door to stay closed. The interior and exterior door handles do not work to open the door. Our technicians note that the door panel must be removed while the door is closed (likely damage will occur) and the latch assembly must be drilled in a specific spot for the door to open.

Tried going to work and my door was jammed shut, had to crawl through the passenger side... Why is my accord having so much trouble? -

I have not been able to go where i want because I am HIGHLY embarassed about climbing out on the passenger side and I cannot find anything or anyone online that can show an actually decent video of give simple instructions to fix this problem!

Driver door will not open....lock goes up and down but will not unlock....since door won't open, can't take panel off to repair....called a locksmith who stated he could not help....what to do? Car is in great shape, but don't want to spend $1500 to get repaired -
I was ready to go work but key didn't go all the way in,so I couldn't do nothing about it, then I used to open the car from the passenger door for about one year until it happened to this door again, so,now I'm facing this problem, two locked doors and I don't know how to open them. -
It's just borked. No fix, yet -- looking for ideas -
It was opening alday but it just wouldn't open -
Driver side door latch stopped working. Door will not open using the inside or outside door handle. There is a fix available without drilling into the car for sedans. It requires that your remove the plastic cover to the divider between the front and rear seats to have limited access to the front door panel. The door panel will need to be wedge open and a coat hanger modified to release the door latch. It is recommended that you practice on the replacement part before attempting. My problem now is finding a new door latch. -
This problem is not fixed yet. My husband's 2005 Honda Element driver side door lock will not lock and the key will not fit into the lock anymore. -
When I first bought the car..I had to climb in through the passenger side. (I REALLY needed a car that was cheap and ran.) My boyfriend rigged it so that all i had to do was pull a wire and the Door wouldould ooen. It is kind of embarassing when I open the door because there is no door panel. But happy that it was a free fix. -
The drivers side door does not open - the door actuator is broken and so far no one can fix it. Are there any instructions to repair this? This is dangerous and should have been a recall - according to a 30 year Honda mechanic. -
My dad bought this 1990 Honda Accord Ex,new,then my dad dies in 1993 and i decided to take the car after he passed me being the oldest plus i needed a good car,and it was,then all of a sudden,it would not start when too cold,too hot same thing.Then the neutral shift module was worn prematurly and could not get out of park or get my keys out,until interior warmed very time consuming,the switch was cheked nothing,the i deceided to buy the modle on Ebay,installed my self and never had that issue again.Now the drivers side door would just freeze shut,like welded shut,i lived with this for four years given i also have a very bad back restricted me.No mechanic would fix for less then 1k,or replace wanted to replace door which i refused to do.Well lets go on three more years there goes the damn door again,my buddy had to saw off hinge bolts,get another lock mech from junk yard and i guess we shall see.Now my seat belts don't work,not the computer,not the motor.I have owned Honda's most my life but after all this aggravation and thousands of dollars,think im done,here is vin #1HGCB7667LA094650,SOMEONE TOLD ME THIS WAS American BUILT?If so no wonder.Thanks Robert M Placido -
