Your Key Has Stopped Turning the Lock

Over time, locks can stop working for a variety of reasons. The mechanisms may have worn out, or years of weather exposure can start to deteriorate the metals inside the lock. If your lock gets stuck easily or refuses to budget when you use your keys, then it’s definitely time for either a lock repair or a lock replacement. Keep in mind that if you get new locks for your doors, you’ll most likely need to replace the ignition cylinder as well. 

If the Ignition Cylinder and Door Lock Cylinders Don’t Match

If the ignition cylinder has been changed, then you may want to get new car locks for your doors as well instead of carrying around separate keys. Many people don’t feel the need to do so because they have a key fob, but regret removing their manual key when they run into problems with their keyless entry system. It’s always good to have a physical key on hand in case of emergencies. In other cases, a used car is purchased directly from the previous owner, and they aren’t given a key that matches the doors, only the key fob. You may be frustrated if your key fob becomes less reliable, and you don’t have a way to get inside your vehicle. An experienced automotive locksmith can help by replacing the door locks to match your cylinder key, or can install a new ignition cylinder and door lock cylinders so there is only one key. 

After Losing Your Keys

If you’ve misplaced your keys in an area where an untrustworthy acquaintance may have found them, it might be a good idea to get new car locks installed. Losing your keys at work, school or at your apartment complex, could invite potential criminals to use your keys to steal your vehicle in the future. When you invest in a complete lock replacement, you can be sure that any attempt to use your old keys to get into your car would be unsuccessful.
