What Causes Car Door Locks to Get Stuck?

If you drive a car long enough, sooner or later you’ll experience the frustration of a stuck or damaged car door lock. Even with modern power locking systems, there’s the chance that something will eventually go wrong and cause it to stick. Here are some of the common causes of stuck car door locks.

Damaged Connections

If your car’s door lock is stuck in the locked position, there may be a broken connection within the door panel or lock assembly. You may be able to open the door manually from the inside.

Broken Key FOB

If you’re in the habit of relying on your remote control key FOB, the problem may lie in the battery or mechanism. Try troubleshooting by using your key to manually open the door.

Build-Up in the Lock

Over time, grime, dirt, or rust can collect inside the lock and cause it to jam. If damage occurred on the inside of the lock, a broken part may be lodged in the mechanism, causing it to stick.

Damage to the Lock

Collisions that impact the door may affect the lock. Even a hard slam may cause the door’s lock to become bent or disconnected.

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.

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!
