Car Door Won’t Unlock

If your car door does not unlock, then several possible issues may have happened. The chances are that if you are mechanically inclined, then you may be able to fix the door yourself. Before calling a locksmith, see if you can open the car door from the inside or outside. Orlando drivers who not mechanically inclined may want to call a locksmith in Orlando, like A-Rudi Cuellar Lock, for assistance.  

Broken Connections

Your car’s door lock is made up of several different parts that must all connect for the lock to work correctly. These parts include the locking interior post or switch, the door lock cylinder, and the door handle. You need to break into your car or call a locksmith, then carefully take apart the lock. Reconnect the parts that are no longer connected and put the lock back together. It is also possible that something has damaged parts, so they need to be replaced.  


Rust, grime, and dirt built up in the car door’s lock can keep it from functioning correctly. You can start by looking to see if anything is blocking the car’s key from going all the way into the lock. If you find something, then use tweezers or a lubricant to get it to slide out of the way and let you unlock the door. If you still cannot locate the source of the problem, then you need a locksmith to open the door. Then, remove the door panel and find the lock assembly. Lubricate the assembly and continue to try to unlock the door until you are successful.  


If you cannot unlock the car’s door after a wreck, even a minor fender bender, then you need to call a locksmith to open the car door. Once the door is open, then remove the door panel and inspect the lock for broken or missing parts. You will need to replace the parts that are not functioning correctly or replace the lock with a new one. Then, you can put the car door back together and be one your way.
