Opening Locked Car Doors

If you have the old style door locks with little buttons on the window ledge, you should be able to unlock your door with a wire coat hanger. If you have smooth buttons, you can use a door stop and a long metal rod. In both cases, you’ll need the right equipment on hand. Unfortunately, if your vehicle has door locks that are recessed inside the interior door handle, you’re going to need professional help. Each car key is coded by the auto manufacturer, and if you have the key code number and personal identification, a locksmith can make you a new key. Write down the key code number and hide it at home.

Repairing Car Door Locks

There could be any number of reasons why your door locks aren’t working. If the actuator has packed up, you’ll need to replace the entire central locking system. However, it could just be from wear and tear from regular use. You could have blown a fuse. The key fob could be faulty.  If it’s your fob failing to send a signal, it’s going to need replacing. Perhaps the key fob battery is be dead. Your door lock solenoid could have failed. It could be broken or damaged electrical wires.
