If you’ve ever opened a car door, you’ve used a door lock actuator. This is the electronically controlled motor in your vehicle that automatically unlocks or locks your doors, trunk, or rear hatch.
Door lock actuators sometimes appear in the form of a system of hoses, vacuums and other mechanisms that work in conjunction to control the function of locks in your car. Regardless of your actuator setup, there will always be a computer controlling the device that will receive signals from your keys, dashboard buttons, or key lock to unlock the vehicle.
Though it is safe to drive with a faulty actuator, you must ensure the doors are manually locked otherwise the doors may open in the case of an accident. Additionally, manually locking the doors is essential to ensure your personal items are kept safe.
Most car owners quickly find that manually locking the entire car and malfunctioning lighting and alarm systems can become a hassle each time they drive. Usually most individuals find it valuable to have actuators repaired as soon as possible since their lights, car alarm and lock functions are so frequently used.
In some cases, the actuator may continually cycle and drain your vehicle’s battery, which in this case it is imperative to get it replaced.
