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.

Joshua
26 years of experience
Mazda Miata - Timing Belt - Moraga, California
Joshua was GREAT! He worked cleanly (first spreading a tarp and mat to catch any drips/drops), safely (jacking up the car and placing the front end on solid jack stands), and knew what he was doing. He ask several questions about the engine before starting to replace the timing belt. He came with all the possible parts he would need even though he didn't use all of them. Since we had a new water pump he gave us a credit for the one not used. He explained what he found and what caused the engine to not run correctly. The concept of Your Mechanic coming to our house to do the repairs saved us towing and repair costs, not to mention the free education I received as Joshua explained what he was doing and finding. He worked quickly and quietly and completed the repairs within the estimated time. He did a very complete cleanup of the car and work area before leaving. Recommend him and Your Mechanic - absolutely. We are hoping to have YourMechanic work on our other cars.

Mazda Miata - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - San Diego, California
This was my first experience with Your Mechanic service. Very happy with Deane as my mechanic. He saved the day for me. He is honest, thorough, and no worries about someone else who might make up services that were really not needed, which I have felt is sometimes the case when travelling to auto repair businesses nearby.
