Frozen car locks: should you replace it or have it repaired?
Europe is covered in a thick layer of white snow. As nice as winter can be, it can also cause practical problems, like frozen car locks.
You may consider replacing the lock with a brand new one, but in some cases lock repair offers a sustainable alternative. Whatever the choice, with Car Lock Systems you can rely on no less than 25 years of experience in car locks.
How do you quickly rule out causes in the event of faults?
It often happens that doors suddenly no longer unlock or lock. Or that the car does not start. And why does the transponder light stay on? The following questions can then help to make a diagnosis:
- Is the key broken? Does the transponder still work?
- If the keyless system does not work: is this a car or a key problem?
- Is there a mechanical defect in the door?
- Does the handle have an electronic problem?
- Does the coil around the ignition switch still respond?
You want to quickly rule out causes, but tracing such faults often takes a lot of time. You can now test hand held transmitters (RF / IR), transponders, smart keys, antennas and much more at lightning speed with the Remote Control Tester Pro.
