Ultimate security system/my locks are frozen !
Well my theft worries are on hold for a while....MY LOCKS ARE FROZEN !
I can't figure this one out. I had that thing in the Arctic for two years and this rarely happened up there. It's only just below freezing here (28 degrees F) and they're freezing already.
I had the inner door panels off the other day and sprayed everything that seemed to move with WD 40 and then motorcycle chain lube and it's still bad when it goes below freezing.
The driver's lock actuating motor seems to have it's rubber boot not firmly on the motor, but it's still above the motor protecting it from the looks of it. The passenger's is still on. Do they fill up with water and freeze ?
The key doesn't work in the doors either, presumably because the rods attached to the motor that is frozen are also attached to the other side of the latch preventing the key from turning the latch, correct ?
Is it easy to remove these motors, lube the bejeepers out of them and run them on the bench with a battery ? Or is it time to spring for new lock motors ?
Out in the cold, locked out Canuck
Passenger's window goes down with it's switch, but neither window goes down from the driver's side. Switch on driver's door ?
