Auto Lock Repair In Chico, CA

It is important that your vehicle's auto lock functions properly so you don't run into any issues trying to get in or out of your car. Depending on if you drive a Acura, Audi, BMW, Chevrolet, or something else, you may unlock your car differently. There are multiple ways to lock and unlock your car, including using your vehicle's remote control, manually locking and unlocking the driver's seat door with your car key, and locking or unlocking the car from the inside using the buttons next to the driver's seat and passenger's seat. Electric car door locks work by using a radio signal transmitted by the car key fob, which causes the actuator to activate (more on how this mechanism works in the next paragraph), which routes the command to either lock or unlock the vehicle.


We at A & T Auto Care understand how your car's locking system works, so if you are in the 95973 area and are having car troubles, don't hesitate to call us at 530-894-5850. The door lock actuator is the mechanism that controls your car's door lock. The actuator is located below your vehicle's key latch; the actuator and key latch are connected by a thin metal rod. You may recall that there is a knob that sticks out of your vehicle that indicates whether the door is locked or unlocked. This is because of a second thin metal rod that connects the key latch to this knob. When you lock or unlock your car, either with your vehicle's remote or manually, the actuator is activated. It moves the door locking latch either up or down. When the latch is in an "unlocked" position, the door handle on the outside of the car is directly connected to the opening mechanism, which allows the door to be open or closed at will. When the latch is "locked," the door handle is not connected to the opening mechanism and the door cannot be opened from the outside without a key.


If you ever get locked out of your car or are having trouble with your car key fob, you can call the police, AAA, or A & T Auto Care in Chico. We at A & T Auto Care pride ourselves in complete customer care. In addition to auto lock repair, we also offer services in tune-ups, auto repair, scheduled maintenance, and automotive maintenance.
