Fixing Power Door Locks

Are one of more of your door locks not coming up when you hit the button? Do you hear the whirring sound of a motor, but nothing is happening? Don’t panic – fixing power door locks doesn’t have to mean the end of the world.

If you’ve ever called your local repair shop for a quote on power door lock repair, they’ve likely told you to call the dealer. They don’t much like fiddling with window regulators, much less fixing power door locks which requires them to remove the window regulators to get to them AND then disconnecting everything else in the door just to reach the lock actuator. It’s not that they aren’t skilled enough to complete the repair, it’s simply that they don’t fix power door locks often enough to make it worth their time and trouble. It’s easier to say it’s a dealer only repair and leave it alone. Now the dealership or what I like to call the “stealership” is alway happy to hear your voice. Their trained to be ready for your call with confusing information and a robot that says $90 diagnosis before we can tell you what’s wrong. Because they know that this repair is difficult for most mechanics, they can charge ridiculous labor rates for this repair and they can justify keeping your car for 3/4 of a day or more which can really be inconvenient.
