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.

I have a 2011 GMC Terrain, it burns oil. Last week it was running rough, idoling rough, and wanting to die when I would let it idol too long without giving it any gas, and after driving it to work the check [engine](/topics-engine-chevy/) light came on. I read a lot of things on the subject online and everyone recommended NO SMOKE STOP LEAK, I went to autozone and got the codes checked, it said it was a random misfire, I added two quarts of oil and a little bit of the no smoke and it ran perfectly, it was like new. That was last Tuesday. Today it was running kind of weird on the way to work, when it was in first gear and I would give it gas, it would bog down and drop RPM and i would release the gas and then it would drive into second gear and work its way up and would run fine after the first gear transfer. I get to work and it dies when I pull into my parking spot before I can put it into park. I turn it back on and the check engine light is flashing and the stabilitrak light is flashing and its shaking violently. I shut it off and check the oil, there is no oil on the dipstick, I add two quarts because thats all I had on me, and i add another thick drop of the no smoke stop leak into the oil, and turn it back on and its still flashing check engine light and service stabilitrak and its very shaky still. I took it to a mechanic down the street from where I work but have not heard anything back from then yet. What are your thoughts?
