Q: Ignition cranking too soon.

asked by on

My ignition switch is not working correctly. The second it is turned to the first position it tries to crank without even getting to the start position and I have to turn it off.

It certainly does sound like there has been a failure of your ignition switch. This failure could cause the problems you are describing. I would ask for help from a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to check your ignition switch and replace it if it is faulty.
