I have my car Dodge SRT 2004 and i'm facing a big problem with it door locks. MY car's door locks stick in hot weather. The button used to open the door gets stuck in the depressed position and the door cannot be opened from the inside. So i needs the best locksmith who can fix this issue for me. If anyone have some suggestions kindly share them with me.

We can take a look at it probably not some thing a locksmith would mess with.

Those switches can be pulled apart and cleaned rather easily. I used to have to do it on my SRT4 every once and a while in the summer. With the windows too.

im going with a switch. had a little water leaking into my window on my accord, whenever i washed the car the locks and window did the same thing. im guessing the heat is causing some kind of expansion with the connector around a wire maybe making it lose connection.. worth the try... and hot weather? seems a strange time to make an attempt at fixing it, how do you know when its fixed

Sometimes the copper gets corrosion or just a little gummed up. Those cars the switches are pretty easy to disassemble, clean up and reassemble. there are some little parts inside that look like The Game of Life people, they are spring loaded. Don't lose them, haha
