Michael was very professional, called me one day before the appointment to make sure everything was on track. He showed up on time to the appointment with a professional appearance and tools. My car was inoperable upon his arrival and helped me push my 3800 lbs vehicle all the way into the apartment complex. He began inspecting the starter that needed replacement and discovered the previous mechanic had not seated the electrical wiring properly and thus the starter did not need be replaced. Most mechanics would of pulled a shady move and still went ahead and replaced it. Due to his findings he was able to save me money and time! I can't wait to work with him again.

All about Ignition Switch Replacement

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.
