However, car door lock replacement is really not that big of a deal and you can get it done quickly and with reasonable costs by a professional car locksmith.


Reasons to consider new car lock installation

The reasons why you might need a car locks installation, be it car door lock replacement or new ignition cylinder installation, are various and may happen from time to time. One of the most common is when your key doesn’t turn in the car door or even if it turns it, the car doesn’t respond properly, the key gets stuck, etc. These can happen due to some mechanical damage of the lock or the key, as well as due to a more complex electrical issue. Generally, if you notice that your car doesn’t lock and unlock normally, contact a car locksmith service for help. A professional locksmith will easily diagnose the problem and find the best solution.

It may happen that your car keys are either stolen or lost. In most cases of losing the keys, you will only need a car key replacement. But if your keys were stolen or you are not sure how and where you lost them, it is best to have your car locks replaced immediately. This way you eliminate any risk of your keys getting into unauthorized hands.


Another situation when car door locks replacement might be needed is after changing your ignition locks. It is common that after you had your car ignition replaced, the locksmith will give you a new set of keys, instead of rekeying the new cylinder. This way, you might be left with two keys - for the car door and for the ignition, which is not a very convenient option, and not all car door locks can me rekeyed. This is why sometimes when you change ignition cylinder, you should also consider car door locks replacement.

These are complex devices with electrical systems connected to them, so it might be dangerous both for you and for your car to try to fix the problem on your own. You can also loose insurance or warranty on some parts, if you insist on repairing it yourself and altering them in the process.


Upgrade your locks to keyless car locks solutions

It might also be that you don’t experience any of the above-mentioned issues, but simply want to upgrade your old locks with new keyless car door locks. Keyless systems are very convenient. They offer central control over all locks and great amount of security. A remote control for a keyless system is usually built into an ignition key. The car door locks do not have a separate key, just a remote control system. By pressing a button on the key, all car doors lock or unlock.ignition locks are car locks too!


Even though car door locks are normally operated by the same key as the car ignition lock, however, those two locks are two separate and different devices not to be confused with each other. The ignition lock of a car is where you put the key to start up the engine, and it can only be accessed once the car door has been opened. This means that if you have problems or complications with the car door locks, you don’t necessarily need to replace your car ignition lock as well. However, it might be more convenient to get car door locks replaced and get a car ignition lock replacements at the same time, so they operate with one key or the same system, like the already mentioned keyless car door locking system.
