1998 Honda Civic Q&A

1998 Honda Civic Question: Driver's side door won't open. Perhaps from theft attempt.

electric locking mechanism still works, door is unlocked. -
Answer 1
DID SOMEONE BREAK INTO CAR? WILL NOT OPEN FROM IN OR OUTSIDE OR BOTH? -
Comment 1
The possible break-in was unsucessful. Door latch handle makes no sound and no action inside and outside. Sorry, I wasn't expecting a reply so quick and I thought I would be notified if one came. Someone suggested that the unskilled use of a slim-jim can cause the door open thing to fail. -
Comment 2
Is it 2 door or 4 door? -
Comment 3
Someone was correct, linkage rods knocked loose will have to pull door panel to fix. -
Comment 4
Thank you. Any ideas on the cost. (It is a four door) -
Comment 5
THE TECH. THAT ASK IF 2 OR 4 DOOR, IS THE HONDA MAN. HE CAN TELL YOU MORE ABOUT THIS THAN I CAN. (Hope you don't mind ziptie) -
Comment 6
Thanks -
Comment 7
Sorry , I didn't see this 'til I'm sure it's to late. If the problem still hasn't been resolved (hopefully without a broken door panel) I'll check back and respond this time. Hi Bruce. -
Comment 8
OK. I'll check again. Thanks. I was going to take it somewhere soon and brace for the sticker shock. I'm still hoping for help on Oct.6.12 and will look again. -
