ive had that problem on a couple of accords and one civic what you have to do is remove the panel (very difficult with door closed) roll window up so you have access to door latch, inspect plastic pieces at end of door handle rods(there are 2 one for interior one for exterior, the exterior is more difficult to reach with door closed) if the plastic pieces are broken you can just move them by hand and open door if the latch itself is broken it gets more complicated....get 1/2 inch drill bit, drill exactly in center of latch (again very difficult with door closed) to get latch to free up, once you get door open replace latch and all is well contact local honda service or parts dept. they have information about this it is a more common problem that you think
You're sweet but trying to keep up with these trends will drive a man crazy. Courtesy is the key here. Bottom line! If a woman wants to open your door...why not let her?
Strip the car down, weld the doors shut and turn it into a rally car. It may be that some of the linkages came unhooked. A good locksmith might be able to help you for a fee, maybe they can use a slim jim to pull the latch up. Problem is that most entry techniques focus on unlocking the door not on bypassing the handle to latch mechanism. You may have to simply cut through the interior door panel and replace it with one from the junk yard.
There's a child lock safety switch that prevents opening from the inside, check if it's swtiched on, on the side of the door.
