I recently squirted some powdered graphite (cheap & easy @ autoparts
stores) into a few locks around here. Noticed much easier key operation
at first but it seems to have faded a bit. Hard to tell...
I don't think this will help the freeze up, though. Try keeping them
dry and keeping them warm? I often won't lock my door if conditions are
weird, just in case.
You should try cleaning and lubing your trunk lock mechanism. Clean
with WD-40 or whatever, lube with lithium I guess. Any better ideas?
