So i've had this problem ever since i got my 03 rsx about 6 months ago. The driver's side lock can only be operated manually. The remote and the lock/unlock buttons work for the other door and the hatch in back. When i manually push down the tab thingy to lock the door it also locks the others though so its not completely disconnected from the power. It just can't be moved by the power. I'm thinking it could be an actuator or something like that? Please help. If i could fix it myself that would be great...
