Default not carbonating.....

So I've had my Golden Honey Ale bottled for 2 1/2 weeks now. Barely any carbonation at all! What caused this and how can I try to get it carbonated?

I had almost a 4 gallon batch and used 5 oz of priming sugar. The bottles are sealed fine. The brew taste good, just pretty flat as there is only a little bit of carbination.
Anyway to open them all up, add something, then rebottle again? If I have to, I'll drink it myself

What temp are the bottles at? Too cool and the process will slow down.

I wouldn't worry. I've had beer dead-flat at two weeks that proves to be fine.

I'd say maybe temperature had something to do with it.

The room sits between 68 to 72 F. So not too cold. All my other beers have carbonated right at a week or so.
