I saw your post and have what sounds like exactly the same trouble
with my '02
RSX driver's-side door lock. did you have any luck?
I was just quoted $150 for
parts and $150 for labor to fix this and
I'm disinclined to believe them when
they say it'll take an hour and
a half for them to do the work. My lock works
weather-sensitive, and the lock itself visibly struggles against
something when you try to remote lock/unlock it.
The dealership guys were
talking about an electrical failure, but the
behavior doesn't strike me as
electrical in nature -- it looks like a
mechanical issue, some sticky thing
restraining that one lock. The
others all work fine, and there's no difficulty
just using the key
manually. $300 seems awfully steep.
I'll try WD-40 and/or the LockEase suggestion.
