Q: Q: Ignition switch not working.

asked by on

I think I might need a new ignition switch. Mine quit working while I was turning it.

The ignition lock cylinder is very common to fail and will move around where the key goes in. The lock cylinder is a simple fix with a replacement lock cylinder. You will have two separate keys unless a locksmith recuts the key for you. I would recommend having a mechanic, like the certified ones at YourMechanic, come and check it out for you to see if this is the only problem.
