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.

Volvo S40 L5-2.4L - ac clutch - Los Gatos, California
Dave was great, on time and very helpful. He diagnosed my air conditioner problem and was able to order the part and complete the job prior to the weekend. He communicated with me every step of the way and definitely made me feel comfortable, I'd highly recommend Dave and plan to use him again. I had done a lot of research on prices prior to the call and feel Your Mechanic has very competitive pricing.

Volvo S40 L4-1.9L Turbo - Electric Problems - Houston, Texas
This was my first experience with your company and it has restored my belief in human kind, not all people are out to get over. Ben was very knowledgeable, timely and professional. He had to wait for me to get to the location of my car but when I reached him there was no attitude and he greeted me with respect and professionalism. I will call again for any other problems I have with my car.
