About Door Lock Mechanisms
The Jeep door lock mechanism driverside consists of several sub components that together allow the door to be locked and unlocked via the key, remote, levers or buttons. In most modern cars the mechanism is centrally controlled by an electronic system. Some cars have manual locking mechanisms with each door needing to be locked independently.
Most of the door lock mechanism is housed within the door itself behind the inner door card although the central electronic control unit will be under the dashboard or elsewhere in the vehicle.
The Jeep door lock mechanism driverside generally consists of a lock barrel, actuator, locking mechanism, knob or lever, switch, connecting rods and clips. The components work together to control the locking of doors on the vehicle.
Door lock mechanisms can fail due to wear and tear of mechanical components or failure of the electronics. This can be as a result of corrosion, broken or damaged wiring, blown fuses or faulty electronic components including switches, actuators or the central control unit (ECU).
- One of the most expensive Jeeps in the world is the 2005 Jeep Hurricane. It's certainly not a cheap option if you're in the market for a Jeep unless, of course, you've got a spare £2 million in the bank.
- Although they were designed for the military, it didn't take long before Jeep released a version for civilians. The CJ-2A had several features that were lacking on the military versions, such as a tailgate, a side-mounted spare tire, and an external fuel cap.
- Jeeps have been seen on the big screen a lot, especially in war films. However, it's not just war that is responsible for iconic Jeep designs in cinema. Jurassic Park used a '93 Jeep Wrangler Sahara for the vehicles used in the dino-park, and the most iconic scene showed the Jeep outrunning a T-Rex! There's even a car club called the Jurassic Park Motor Pool, where members have to own a Jeep that has been painted to look like it's come straight from the park.
- The original Jeep was designed in only two days! The prototype took 75 days to be built and then delivered to the US army that had commissioned the vehicle.
- Jeep has had eight different owners to date. The current owners of the iconic brand are Fiat-Chrysler, but the name has been owned by recognisable names like Renault and AMC.
