Car Door Lock Actuator Replacement Service

What is the Door Lock Actuator all about?

A door lock actuator is the component in electronic door locks that is responsible for locking and unlocking the vehicle’s doors. When a button is pressed to lock or unlock a door, the door lock switch triggers the actuator. A small motor in the actuator then triggers a series of gears. The final gear is connected to a rack and pinion set of gears, which converts the rotational motion of the motor into the vertical motion necessary to lock or unlock the door.

Keep in mind:

Some modern vehicles have a complete door lock assembly which can’t be separated into individual components. These vehicles will need the entire assembly replaced, rather than just the actuator.

Our recommendation:

The door lock system shouldn’t be checked unless you notice that something is wrong. As soon as you notice your vehicle behave oddly when you lock or unlock the doors, schedule an inspection.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Door Lock Actuator?

  • Doors won’t lock.
  • Doors won’t unlock.
  • Doors will only lock or unlock sporadically.
  • Doors make an unusual noise while locking or unlocking.
  • Car alarm goes off randomly.

How important is this service?

A door lock actuator is responsible for locking and unlocking your doors. When the door lock switch is triggered, the actuator’s motor powers a set of gears that lock or unlock your door. When the actuator stops working, there is no communication between the door lock switch and the door locks, and you’ll be unable to lock or unlock the door.

BMW 318is - Car idle is rough - Snohomish, Washington
Great guy! Good communication and very courteous. Diagnosed and repaired my idle issues in a short timeframe. I can't remember when my car has run this good!

BMW 318is - Radiator Hose Repair - Daly City, California
James was a great mechanic, he arrived early and showed me what needed to be repaired. He was very professional and experienced at what he does. The work he did was outstanding and he fixed my squealing belts. He brought all the tools that was needed even the special tools BMW uses to fix the problem I had. I would recommend using his service again for any other problems I have with my BMW.

BMW 318is - Thermo Fan Switch - San Diego, California
David's technological and mechanical trouble shooting abilities and professionalism is beyond reproach. He is not only thorough but easily explains what troubles found but also explains how the found discrepancy affects the car. If I need to call 'Your Mechanic' again, I will insist that David come again. He is the best car mechanic I have met to date.

BMW 318is - Thermostat - Daly City, California
This was my 2nd meeting with James and yet again he fixed my problem. My car has been giving me overheating problems and he fixed the problem and recommended I do other services so I don't have a problem with overheating for a long time. His personally & professionalism is what make James, he come's on time and gets his job started and when I keep him company he likes shows and teaches me how to diagnose simple fixes. Any time I have a car problem I'm giving James a call.
