My Car’s Power Locks Are Broken

My Car’s Locks Don’t Work

There are few things more frustrating than being locked out of your car. You want to get into your car because you’re trying to go somewhere, but alas, you can’t open any of the doors. Be it at home or away, the last thing you want when you’re trying to go somewhere is for your car door locks to be broken. But consider all the ways you can open your car’s power locks—using a key, using the unlock button inside the car, using keyless entry, and pulling up on the knob in the door. There could be a problem with any of these mechanisms that unlocks your car door. Here are some of the reasons a car’s power lock may be broken.

Problems with the Fob

Your key fob may be the reason your car door locks aren’t working. Whether the issue is the battery (which can be solved simply by replacing the fob’s battery), or something more complex like the fob’s programming, your fob will likely need to be inspected and possibly replaced. Depending on the vehicle & warranty, the price to replace or repair your key fob will vary.

Blown Fuse

A blown fuse is evident when one of the doors on your car won’t unlock while the others will. Replacing the fuse is a quick and easy solution for this problem. It usually doesn’t cost too much money.

Wiring Issues

The wiring that connects the lock to the car’s battery is faulty or broken, it can cause your power lock not to work. If the lock isn’t getting any power, it may remain either locked or unlocked. You can test this by holding the lock switch on the inside of the car door either up or down, and opening the door to see if it locked or not.

I recently brought my car in to have the broken passenger window replaced. The guys at Frank’s were very professional and the prices were good compared to other places. I’d recommend to anyone. Thanks guys!

Couldn't ask for a better establishment! I been driving around with a cracked windshield for longer than I should have. Finally had am off day and dropped them off my car. I was running late to pick up the car and they were very accommodating. Some places would make you wait until next day. Reasonable straightforward prices. They have gained a customer for life.

Once again, frank’s auto glass came through. The price was exceptional the service was great, I would highly recommend anybody who needs class work, Should come here. I’ve done business with Frank and his family for many years, and I always leave satisfied. They don’t make them like this anymore. So five stars in Bravo.

Frank’s was great. They didn’t have my windshield in stock and had to order one, but they were ready for me the next day. The work was completed very quickly, and the staff were all friendly. The price was fair. Would go back again if necessary!

I am extremely happy with the service I received from Frank's Auto Glass Repair. The replacement took a few hours because of the business' excellent service that it is first come first served. I have nothing but good things to say about this business. I pray I do not need another one anytime soon but I will definitely refer family and friends for premier services!
