Power Door Lock Repair

Did your car door locks stop working? Is your power lock stuck and won't unlock? The typical problem we fix with a car door lock repair is either the switch or the actuator. 

Car door lock actuator replacement is the motor function of the door lock. When you press the power lock switch, the actuator locks and unlocks the doors.

A vehicle's door lock switch replacement is the command center of your door lock function and sends the signal from the switch to the actuator.

There are really two options with a bad door lock actuator or faulty door lock switch:

  • manually operate the locks

Signs of a Door Lock Actuator Replacement

One way we pinpoint the possible cause of car door locks not working is whether there’s power to the actuator. If power is reaches the actuator, but the power lock doesn’t work, the actuator is likely faulty and needs to be replaced. A quick diagnosis for car door lock repair is whether one door lock is not working versus all locks. Each car door is equipped with an actuator. If only one lock is failing, it is commonly a door lock actuator repair. If none of the locks work, the problem is somewhere else.
