Q: Doorlocks hard to move

asked by on

I'm having a hard time unlocking my doors.

If the door locks are not working then it can be caused by a number of things. If it is only the remote that is acting up, then the receiver module may be failing or the battery in the transmitter is bad. If the lock button is not working any better, then the master lock switch is probably failing. This is common. The voltage at the switch and to the locks would need to be checked to verify the failure. If you would like this repaired, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose your door lock issue.
