Default 2010 ACCORD - from inside how can I unlock & open the door using the lever

From the inside of a Honda Accord 2010 front driver and passenger seats, how can you manually open locked Accord front doors by pulling open the door levers instead of using the electric lock and THEN opening the door?

Flip the lock tab inward to unlock, it will show a red sticker indicator when it is unlocked. Then pull the inner door handle. Refer to the owner's manual.

Default You misunderstood...

no no, of course I know HOW to unlock the door - you are not understanding my question...

On my previous car - another make/model I was accustomed to being able to (from the inside) just pull open the door lever to open and unlock the door in one step in the front seats - no electric switches or door buttons needed to be used.

Can I do this with the Accord, and if so do I have to program anything?

No, you can't do or program what you're describing.

Default lol

yes, it was a ford, lol - good guess!

I am accustomed to in 1 act opening and unlocking the door just by opening the door handle from the inside - so now feeling weird and locked in in the Accord having to unlock it before opening it.

I know there is some program thing to set or change the auto lock from turning on when driving feature, and the child safety door features in the rear, but did not know if some way to override the front seat door lock and not have to use the manual lock or the electric lock. Guess I will have to get used to it and also reset the automatic locking thing so it doesn't lock in the first place.

That feature can be programed; but, not what OP is describing.
