Default 91 Integra Driver's Door Lock

Greetings,
Driver's door lock does not lock while the door is open. Locks fine when it
is shut, with the key, or with the auto lock switch or flip lever from the
inside. Even locks fine from the passenger auto switch as long as the
driver's door is closed.
Took the door panel off and took out the latch. When the latch is rotated
closed the lock mechanism turns fine, lcking and unlocking correctly. When
the latch is in the open position the pin blocks the lock from rotating.
Nothing "appears" to be broken or bent. Seems as though it was designed that
way to prevent people from locking their keys in the car. Could this be
possible?
Regards,
Robin

It's not supposed to;keeps you from locking your keys inside.

HOWEVER;there's a trick to get around this;you pull out the inside door
release lever,and flip the lock button over while the lever is out,and then
the door locks when you close it.
Most Hondas/Acuras will do this.

Yep. You may rest assured your Acura vehicle is performing as designed,
even after fifteen years.

A quote form the Owner's Manual:
"...the driver's door cannot be locked when
open unless you hold the door handle open. The front doors can be
locked and unlocked from the outside with the key."

You may download an Owner's Manual for free (and without login) from
Honda's Techinfo site:

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately the car did not come with the owner's
manual.
Regards,
Robin
