Broken ignition switch or key?

FAQs

What could be causing my ignition not to start?

It can be baffling when your car started fine the last time you used it, which was possibly only minutes ago, and won't start now. It's a good indication that a problem exists with the ignition switch when you place a key in the ignition and the car won't start. If you're like a lot of drivers, your thoughts won't turn to an ignition problem right away. You will likely assume that something is wrong with your car's battery and attempt to jump-start it with cables. You suddenly realize what the true problem is when that doesn't work.

How can I tell when my ignition switch is about to give out?

Unfortunately, one of the first signs of a problem is when the car won't start or when the engine cranks but won't turn over. This usually happens due to a spark coming from the ignition cylinder. When a certified locksmith technician arrives to your location, he or she will evaluate the situation and decide if it's possible to repair the ignition switch. If so, the locksmith will quickly devise a plan to fix the problem. If not, it will be necessary to replace the switch of your ignition instead.

Would it be better to try to repair my ignition switch?

Repairing the switch of an ignition isn't as simple as you might expect. It's often better to opt for replacement right away rather run the risk of incurring additional damage. Sometimes it's possible to repair a wire in the ignition switch and get it working again. The decision of whether to repair or replace often depends on whether a replacement component is available and how much it costs. However, we would need to determine the precise issue with your ignition switch before getting to that point.

Before making a firm decision, we need to uncover the specific issue causing your ignition switch not to work. It often looks like one simple issue upfront only to turn into something more complex. Our locksmith technician will recommend either ignition repair or replacement after assessing the problem with your car and taking your preferences into consideration.

Naturally, this can vary a great deal depending on the specifics of your vehicle and the difficulty or ease of reaching the cover for your ignition switch. With the more straightforward jobs, we usually just lift the cover and remove the bolts, latches, and screws of your car's ignition. We then quickly reassemble it after fixing the issue.

Will you be able to replace the switch on my car's ignition?

Yes, each member of our auto locksmith team has completed extensive training in order to complete this job properly and efficiently. However, we first need to check the ignition cylinder to make sure that no other issues exist. If they do, it might not be enough to replace it. Our locksmith would need to investigate further to determine whether the ignition switch is still effective.

Depending on the make and model of your car, we may need to wait a bit before beginning work on its ignition switch. With some manufacturers, we need to contact a third party to obtain the details we need to complete our work. We will be certain to update our time estimate if this happens.
