Door does not lock or open Inspection Service

If your door refuses either to lock/unlock or open, the mechanism is likely jammed. Not unlocking/locking could be linked to the electric switch used in most modern cars today, a blown fuse, or faulty wiring. It could also be that the mechanical linkage connecting the handles to the latch is broken or jammed.

Common reasons for this to happen:

  • One of the plastic clips broke and the rod fell off
  • Door kicker or relay has gone bad
  • Door lock cylinder is damaged

What to expect:

A top-rated mobile mechanic will come to your home or office to determine the source and cause of the door lock issue, and will then provide a detailed inspection report that includes the scope and cost of the necessary repairs.

How important is this service?

Without either the security provided by doors that lock or the convenience of doors that open, the car isn’t much use to anyone. Book a mechanic for a thorough inspection as soon as possible.

Robert has done 1 jobs on my car, and every time I have been extremely happy!! I have already recommend him to a friend and he did a big job on her car and she was happy with the results. This is such a good thing. Having your mechanic service you at home works for me. I hate leaving car at a shop, and it's an inconvenient thing for me. I will continue to use Robert for me, my kids cars, and for friends as well.

Theodore was very knowledgeable. I called him in to look at my door lock problem and he was able to find out what the real issue was. In addition of that, he also spotted some damages under my door panel done by the car dealership where I bought my car, and also pointed out that the car battery that came with the car was half of the size of the factory one. I was really grateful to have him as my mechanic. He already saved me a fortune and I would recommend him to anyone that needs a helping hand. Good job Theodore!
