What is Door Lock Actuator?
A door lock actuator is a mechanical component fitted into the car doors. They help the doors lock and unlock automatically and adequately with the click of a button. The door lock actuator does not require the effort of pulling the rod and the cable.
In most cars, the actuator is connected to the latch via a rod, and that latch is joined to the doorknob through another rod. This doorknob stands out straight through the door at the top.
Whenever you push the doorknob down, the actuator inside disconnects the latch from the door handle and the rest of the mechanism, which means that you can’t open the door as it is locked. Whenever you pull the doorknob up, the actuator inside connects the latch to the door handle, and you will be able to open the door.
Bad Door Lock Actuator Symptoms
Door locks are one of the most important and commonly used components in a vehicle - for a good reason. They protect your car, your belongings, and yourself when you are in it. However, the door lock actuators can be a bit of a nuisance, and you may have to face some typical issues. If they start to malfunction, you can troubleshoot and repair them yourself with some knowledge and patience. Keep an eye out for the three most common signs that your actuator needs repair - sticking (moving) parts, noises when opening/closing the door, and difficulty unlocking the door from the inside.
