I understand your dilemma. They do have the right to withhold your residential entrance code until your fees dispute is resolved. I know that is not the optimal answer, but HOAs do have a lot of latitude in these situations. You can try holding up traffic but if this were then to go to litigation, that sort of conduct would put you in a bad light with the judge. You also do not want them seeking any sort of legal action against you such as an injunction as it would be costly and time consuming to defend.
