Reasons Your Mesa Car Door Won't Lock
Most Mesa car door locks are now electronically powered. You can still push in a switch to lock the door in some cases, but mostly, there is a button or fob to lock or unlock the door. While that certainly makes it easier to lock and unlock the vehicle, it can also make it more difficult if problems arise. What do you do if the door won't lock? Or won't unlock?
Calling a Downtown Mesa locksmith near you like U.S. Key Service can help you solve the problem fast. Understanding what causes the problem may be able to help you prevent it in some cases. Here are a few of the reasons why your car door won't lock:
Dead Battery in Fob
If your fob isn't powered, it can't send the signal to open the door or lock it. Try other buttons on the fob to see if it is working at all or is just having a problem communicating with the locks. If the fob isn't responding at all, pick up a new battery to see if that's the issue. The battery only costs a few dollars, and you can find it any place batteries are sold, including your local grocery store. If the battery doesn't solve the issue, there may be a problem with the fob. A mobile car locksmith can make you a new one.
We are so reliant on technology that we often forget it is not fool-proof. Electrical systems can fail over time. Some part may break, or the coding may have a bug. If your fob is not working on the door but seems to be working on other parts of the car, such as for activating the alarm system, then there may be a problem with the electrical system in the door. You'll have to take the car to your dealer or a local Mesa mechanic to get to the bottom of the problem and have it repaired.
