Power locks are something we use in our car every day we drive. But what happens when those locks start to wear out? Door locks in your car protect you and your possessions. Mobile Installation can assess and replace power locks for you today.


How Do You Know if Your Power Locks Are Worn Out?

Once your power door locks stop functioning altogether, they will show obvious signs of wear and need replacing. But your door locks often show signs of wear long before full failure. Here are some things to look for so that you can replace your worn out power locks before you find yourself locked out completely!


●        Weird Noises Coming From the Door. You hear the normal lock and unlock noise with your car, but listen for changes in that noise. Is it suddenly louder? Do you hear metal-on-metal scraping? Door locks operate with gears, motors, and actuators. All these things can fail, and sometimes they make noise before doing so.

●        My Power Locks Are Haunted! No, it’s not a ghost randomly locking or unlocking your car doors. An actuator may be failing and may cause the doors to lock or unlock without warning. A range of things can be wrong here, from mechanical failure of some part to something as simple as a loose wire. Our experts can guide you through troubleshooting erratic lock behavior.

●        My Key Fob Isn’t Working. First you should check and/or replace the battery in your key fob. If your battery is fine, then it may indicate a problem with your power locks. Even if the power door lock buttons in your car work fine, and you cannot use your key fob, it may be an early sign your power locks are showing wear and may fail.


Time to Replace Your Power Locks

Replacing power door locks involves a part called a door lock actuator. Once one of our technicians has determined there is no mechanical problem with your door locks, we can replace the actuator.

An actuator has a motor that powers your locking gears in your car door. While removing the door panel using specialized tools is necessary, the replacement of an actuator is a straightforward process. Our qualified technicians can usually have your actuators replaced within one day.
