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.

Ford E-250 Econoline - Smoke from engine or exhaust - Charlotte, North Carolina
This was my first time using yourmechanic.com. I have an older model conversion van which can’t be serviced in most places so it is hard for me to even get an oil change without going across town. Plus, it’s so old & rickety looking, I always fear that I’m easy pickings for a con mechanic. Brent showed up on time and recognized things about this vehicle that only an experienced mechanic would know. He was honest about me NOT needing repairs at the time & made recommendations on what to consider having done in another 6 months. Now 6 mos later, I intend to follow up and book with Brett again. I wanted to request him to work on my daughter’s car while she was briefly in town but alas he was unavailable. No worries tho, I was able to arrange an appointment with another mechanic with 20 yrs experience thru this website. If all goes well, I’ll have 2 experienced mechanics I can rely on. My only criticism is that motorcycle repair services are not offered by yourmechanic.com I’d also like to see yourmechanic.com do NC inspections. Hopefully they can work on that!
