Q: How do I find the ignition switch

asked by on

How is that how would I find the ignition switch ?
My car has a manual transmission.

I would need to know the model of your 2002 BMW to know where the ignition switch is on your vehicle. If the vehicle has a key start on steering column then the switch is on other side of column under the covers. If you have push button start then that is the ignition switch in the dash.
