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.

Whitney

Nissan Pickup L4-2.4L - Check Engine Light is on - Santa Clara, California
First of all he was on time, that, "really impressed me" He was extremely informative as I asked many questions and he answered them all. My truck was stalling and vibrating...well, no more, she is puring like a kitten and got me to work today, safely. In addition, Whitney O. is very fast and uses his tool like the master he is. He showed me how to read my oil gage, correctly as I had put to much oil in my car...which did not enhanced my truck's performance...therefore, I learned a huge lesson (Even though I thought I knew how to decipher how much oil...but I was wrong). Another factor that impressed me was when he put my hood up he stopped and touch the engine as if he was a doctor examing his patient; I really appreciated that because that is how I treat my truck...as my friend. Additionally, he showed me what new parts I should get for my truck to enhance her performance: best antifreeze, the best gas, and the best oil to use for my truck. After the job was completed he test drove the truck and he also had me test drive her. Suffice to say, he was a very competent gentlemen. I am happy and he definitely is the mechanic I have been looking for, for the past two years. I would, and have referred him in a "New York minute. Thank you guys so much. Rosanna
