All Honda's have this feature starting in 1988. Its a device that makes it difficult to lock your keys in the car. To lock the door from inside, you have to hold the door opener latch while locking the door and the lock will go all the way down. Read your owners manual. It will be in there.
Unfortunately I think this is simply a consequence of living in colder climates. The only long term solution to this problem would be to somehow seal off the locking cylinder from condensation and the elements, which would be nearly impossible to do if the only method of unlocking the door is by physically inserting and turning a key.

I'd start by checking Fuse#34 (20A) in the driver side underdash fusebox. If that fuse is fine I'd investigate voltage @ the release solenoid itself. Looks like the white/green wire should get 12V when trunk pop is activated. If that signal is good you may have a bad solenoid.
The click should be the latch solenoid firing so the signal should be fine I wouldn't think the FOB is the issue. My bet is that the solenoid does not have enough power to disengage the latch try spraying some penetrating oil (WD-40 or similar) onto the latch claw and latch pin to see if that helps loosen it up. If you don't have any penetrating oil you ...
It's the control cable (#10) that runs from the door handle / lock tab to the latch/lock assembly. It's discontinued, not a single one in dealer inventory in the entire United States. Vintage Parts does not have any either. I ended up grabbing one off of a wreck at the local Pick-n-Pull . Getting to it involves removing the door panel. Remove the screws ...
