One of the most valuable parts of a car’s security is its locks. As of all vehicles built after 2000, they are built with power locks. They have become the standard safety feature of all modern cars due to their effectiveness. Unfortunately, like all parts of a vehicle, the components of your vehicle’s power lock wears down and needs to be replaced.

Below we will discuss the original equipment of door lock control switches, door lock relays, door lock actuators, and their replacement.
Door Lock Control Switches
The door lock control switch can take a lot of damage from water intrusion, over use, and children who like to play with them. Eventually the switch becomes so worn down that it begins to malfunction. Having a broken door lock switch is not good for anyone, and it helps to get it repaired as soon as possible. That is why we offer you with OEM style door lock control switches replacements.
Door Lock Relays
The door lock relays have the important role of relaying the door lock’s power allowing the door to lock and unlock. A malfunctioning relay switch can cause your doors to lock when you don’t want them to or to not work at all. A nonfunctioning door lock relay is especially a problem for newer vehicles that don’t have traditional door lock cylinder; you can be completely locked out.
We also offer universal fit Direct Door Lock Relay Assembly which can be used by any make or model that was not listed above.
Door Lock Actuators
Door lock actuators are the motors that lock the doors to your vehicle upon the control of the door switch. Usually you can hear a broken actuator because it will sound like strange gear noises. Fortunately, door lock actuators are fairly easily to replace since they can be accessed by removing the interior door panel.
So, when you need to replace your door lock actuator we can provide you with the part you need.
