The power door lock system is a relatively simple system. When you press the lock or unlock button (located on your key, or inside your vehicle), the power door lock sends a relay signal to the power door lock actuator. The actuator, through a series of gears, locks or unlocks the door or doors that you are controlling. Since there are multiple components that make up this system which could be causing them to fail, it’s best to first have a professional mobile mechanic complete a power door locks are not working inspection.
