    Not to be a smartass, but...

    is it unlocked.

    that's about the extent of my knowledge anyway.

    (I'm mostly here for the learning and comic relief)

    Something came loose somewhere. Take off the interior panel and look around.

    Door is activated by a little rod that goes downward from the outside handle. There are several metal/plastic connections in the door mechanisms, so its likely that one snapped. Happens all the time.

    As far as getting it open though.. Thats a tough one, lol.

    Personally, I'd get a coat hanger, straighten it out, bend a small hook onto one end, get a flashlight, roll down the window, and pick away from the window channel. Good luck with it.

    ... the door actuator.

    sounds ghetto, but wtf else are you going to do short of cutting a hole in your door panel?

    Had to do that to my passenger side in my daytona when it wouldnt open after my friend bent my frame rear-ending me. Fun while it lasted, it was a hunk of shit anyway.

    Good luck on your door problem. Call a mechanic, maybe they will know a trade secret or something?

    Check out CB7tuner. This is a common problem with the 90-93 Accords.
