If something goes wrong with a lock on your car, it can be unclear as to exactly how to fix it. If the key suddenly doesn’t turn, is it a problem with the key or the lock?

Does Your Car Need a Lock Change?
A lock change for a car is usually necessary when a lock has become worn out or damaged. The same also applies to the car’s ignition. Sometimes this damage comes from a key that has gotten stuck inside or even broken off. In some cases this issue can be solved by extracting the key and repairing the lock but may require a replacement of the lock.
It may be just the one lock on the door of the car or the trunk that needs replacing. If they are all getting old and difficult, though, all can be done together. You may have a concern that your car key has fallen into the wrong hands and don’t want someone to be able to come along and just take your car with an unauthorized key. Usually this can be solved by rekeying the locks, rather than replacing.
