The drivers door lock usually starts to stick and is hard to open and the key is hard to insert or remove from the door lock. Sometimes the key will get stuck or broken in the door lock. Lubricating the door lock will not help because the wafers inside the lock are bending and failing. In most cases, Mr. Locksmith rekeys or repairs the lock and this should fix the problem.
In some cases the Honda Ignition key has worn prematurely and we just make a new factory key by code and reprogram the new key into the car.
Most of the newer Honda ignitions are susceptible to the same design flaw and the ignition wafers wear prematurely causing the lock to fail to turn or having the ignition key stuck in the lock. Again, Mr. Locksmtih Automotive repairs the lock and you should have no further problems with ignition failure.
