Ignition Switch Replacement Service

What is the Ignition Switch all about?

The ignition switch, located on the steering column or in the dashboard, takes the power from the battery and directs it to all the accessories and electrical components of your car. It also transfers the power to the starter when you turn the ignition key. If the starter does not receive power from the ignition key, the car will not start. When the ignition switch goes bad, your car may not start and the accessories (lights, radio, etc.) may not work. Replacing an ignition switch can be as simple as removing a few screws to access the ignition switch, or as complicated as removing the whole steering column.

Ignition Switch

Keep in mind:

  • After an ignition switch is replaced, all electrical components should be checked to ensure proper operation.

How it's done:

  • Check the condition of the ignition switch.
  • Remove and replace the ignition switch if it is bad.
  • Verify operation of electrical components.

Our recommendation:

The battery feeds power to ignition switch, so it is important for the ignition system that the battery is in good condition. Don't put too much weight on your key ring because this can damage the key and the tumbler part of the ignition switch. If there is no power inside the car (none of the electrical components are working), have the mechanic inspect the main fuses. If the fuses are good, then the mechanic should inspect the ignition switch and other electrical components.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Ignition Switch?

  • Car may not start.
  • Car starts then dies.
  • Some electrical components may not work (radio, clock, lights, etc.).

How important is this service?

The ignition switch serves to send power from the battery. When you turn your key to turn on your vehicle, the ignition switch takes power from the battery and sends it to the starter, which allows your vehicle to turn on. When you turn on any electrical components in your vehicle (such as your lights, radio, and air conditioning), the ignition switch draws power from the battery, and sends it to these electrical components to power them. When your ignition switch stops working, your starter and your electrical components have no way of drawing power from your battery. With a faulty ignition switch, you won’t be able to use your radio, lights, or air conditioning, and you won’t be able to turn on your vehicle. In extreme cases, a broken ignition switch won’t allow you to turn your vehicle off, even if you remove the key.

Acura CL V6-3.0L - Ignition Switch - Buford, Georgia
Jose was very punctual and completed in a timely manner. He was very thorough and explained any problems he found. He didn't make me feel pressured to get the service but I felt assured he was being honest in his recommendation. I need a couple of other things done and will be requesting Jose when I make a appointment.

Acura Integra L4-1.8L - Ignition Switch Replacement - Redmond, Washington
Honestly it's my first time ever heard of mobile car repair. I was skeptical at first about this whole ordeal, but I tried it out anyway. I'm glad that I did! The company assigned Theodore as my local mechanic to fix my inigtion switch. He's friendly, genuine, and professional. He got the job done and I'm confident in his work. Not only that the cost is cheaper than most places. I would totally use him again. Finding a right mechanic that you can trust and get the job done right is utmost crucial. I would recommend Theodore as your next mechanic! Theodore you are an awesome mechanic!

Jordan was a delightful and professional mechanic! I knew that replacing the ignition switch in the Acura was going to be a chore, but Jordan got right down to business and got the job done! I couldn't be more pleased with Jordan and the Your Mechanic program. I'll be using Your Mechanic and Jordan again!

I have a noise that sounds like low power steering fluid.The fluid level is ok and the noise comes from the other side of the [engine](/topics-engine-toyota/). The a/c compressor and [alternator](/topics-alternator-toyota/) are over on that side. The a/c system was evacuated and dye placed in the system in August. I have a hole in my condenser. This winter there was no need to spend money on it so I waited. Now the whin started up and it is engine speed related. The a/c hasn't been switched on, but the noise remains. Is it possible the compressor has gone bad?

My oil light came on way before it usually does after getting a battery replaced.

It could be that the service reminder was affected by having the battery disconnected for a short time. These days, it is wise for a technician to hook up an alternative power source while changing the battery to prevent memory...
