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.

Volkswagen Jetta - Door Lock Actuator Replacement (Passenger Side Rear) - Culver City, California
Kenneth was quick and efficient. The repair was completed in an hour right where it was parked - super convenient! He was friendly and very professional. It would be a pleasure to work with him again.
BMW 330i - Door Lock Actuator Replacement (Driver Side Front) - Playa Del Rey, California
A fantastic experience. Kenneth is a consummate professional. He arrived on time, explained everything that he did, and expertly performed each service. He finished the work in less time than was quoted and noticed another issue with the vehicle but told me that only the gasket would need to be replaced, and that people might try to up-sell the entire assembly, which would be unnecessary. Needless to say, I am going to have Kenneth do the job and hopefully work with him on all future automobile repairs. Thanks again, Kenneth!

Hyundai Sonata - Door Lock Actuator Replacement (Driver Side Front) - Shawnee Mission, Kansas
Although we had a slight delay due to rainy weather this past Saturday, and Andrew and I coordinated to reschedule in order for him to have the right conditions in order to complete the work. He arrived on time Monday and quickly fixed the issue with my door actuator on my Hyundai Sonata. I would definitely recommend Andrew to anyone and for future repairs!
