Power Door Locks and Door Latches
Did you hit the key fob or door lock button to unlock your car but one door isn’t unlocking or locking? Do you hear a sound like it’s trying to do something, but it only moves partially or not at all? These symptoms indicate that the door lock actuator is broken or failing. If your car won’t open from either handle, interior or exterior, it’s likely the door latch that’s causing the problem. Sometimes the door lock actuator is part of the door latch assembly, in which case the part will be more expensive.
POWER DOOR LOCKS AND DOOR LATCHES
It’s a rare occasion that an automobile door latch or door lock actuator can be repaired, therefore we always expect to be replacing it with a new part, whether aftermarket or OEM. Once we are in, if we find that what’s broken is fixable, we can return the part and give our customer great news! We’re into shock and surprise….not shock and awe! We would rather over quote you and then lower your price onsite, than raise your price in the field. Our customers trust us!
Door latch repair in general usually has to do with the cable or rod linkage between the door handle and the actual door latch. Dealer service centers and your local repair shop will tell you that it can’t be repaired. They’ll also quote you somewhere in the range of $250-500.00 to repair it, but not before requiring you to come in and pay $75 for a complete diagnosis. Oh yeah, you’ll lose your car for the day too! They’re banking on you being so put out by all the inconvenience that you’ll go ahead and have it repair, not matter the cost. Just say NO! Power Window Repair has a better solution.
