AnswerI had the same problem on the passenger side of my 2000 Sport. Went to have my oil changed and they recommended a body shop because they couldn't get the thing open either. Before doing that we decided to try spraying the latch with WD-40, a bit tricky since we couldn't get the hood up on that side, but after several generous attempts the latch released and I haven't had a problem since.

I also had the same problem only once on my 2000 Sport...Had to take to body shop who charged me $40 to free it. They told me they just kept pushing no the center of the hood and trying to spray in WD 40 anywhere they could....Best thing to do...keep all hood latches lubed! once a month at least....

If the drivers door on a 1989 Accord will not open but everything appears to be connected how can you get the door open to replace the latch?

I have dealt with this problem before at our bodyshop. Basically, a spring inside the latch has broke, and now there is no way to release the latch, even by manually pulling on the release lever at the latch. Prepare to replace the latch, as it is not repairable. Be prepared to be working inside the car. To make it easier to work, unbolt the seat, and remove from the car. Remove the door panel, and also the door handle. You will have to chisel at the plastic part of the latch, and break it off bit by bit. Eventually you will be able to release the latch. good luck
