Get some lock deicer to fix it temporarily.... if you can get it in a heated garage or wait until a semi mild day and spray it with some spray grease to displace the moisture.......the spray grease should be something you do about 4 times a year to keep them free and working
hope this helps....good luck!

How do I take the door panel off of a 2006 Buick Rendezvous (drivers front door) panel? My door locks and latch keep freezing in the winter time and I want to remove the panel to lube it with grease.


Putting grease on pivot points will make things worse in the winter since grease gets stiff when it gets cold. Shoot some dry graphite in the lock cylinder from the outside.

Heater blows cold air


First, make sure you are not low on antifreeze and that the heater is set correctly. Also, it is winter, make sure your coolant is not frozen. Heaters take longer to work in the winter when it is cold outside.

If the simple things are all ok, you may have a problem that will require diagnosis and new parts to repair. I recommend a pro shop with certified mechanics that will do the job right quickly the first time.

Your Land Rover is no doubt fuel injected.maybe cold start injector. injects gasoline when starting in the cold, carburated vehicles used to have a choke to enrich air/fuel ratio when starting in cold.

I have a 2000 pontiac grand prix with a digital climate control system. The heat quit working, it doesn't blow out any heat. Now that it is warm outside the air stopped blowing out any air. The digital temperature on the climate control is not correct. When it states that it is below 30 degrees on the ext and it is warm outside the air wont be cold. Once it starts going above 30 degrees the air gets colder. Today the blower stop working all together. Was told it maybe the climate control unit was bad. You can hear the door opening/shutting when you switch the temp from cold to hot. But there was no heat blowing out whatsoever in the winter time. Could you please give me your opinion on whether or not it is the climate control unit or something else?

When its cold outside,has a hard time starting....92 toyota 4x4


you need to have the Engine Coolant Temperature switch checked,since the computer relies solely on sensors,the ect tells the computer how cold or hot it is so the computer will make it a rich or lean mixture to start the engine,if it tells the computer that it is 75 degrees the computer will lean the mixture like starting a car in the winter without a choke.
