Honestly it's my first time ever heard of mobile car repair. I was skeptical at first about this whole ordeal, but I tried it out anyway. I'm glad that I did! The company assigned Theodore as my local mechanic to fix my inigtion switch. He's friendly, genuine, and professional. He got the job done and I'm confident in his work. Not only that the cost is cheaper than most places. I would totally use him again. Finding a right mechanic that you can trust and get the job done right is utmost crucial. I would recommend Theodore as your next mechanic! Theodore you are an awesome mechanic!
Theo was ontime and extremely courteous. He diagnosed my vintage Mercedes' problem and returned a week later. The replacement part they sent him was incorrect, so he reassembled my dashboard and waited for the correct replacement. When it arrived, he not only installed it, but followed me to a service station and then test drove the vehicle to check for other problems. I will ABSOLUTELY use Your Mechanic.com in the future to avail myself of a great mobile service. Thank you.

Chris was great. Showed up early and while he was not able to fix the problem, he did let me know what the problem was. He also provided notes for me to give to the dealership/mechanic. One thing to note, I would make sure that you are ok with the non-broken parts being installed. I did not know that Chris would be installing parts that were not needing to be replaced and therefore billed for them until it was too late.

Luther called to introduce himself, confirm the appointment and get further details about my truck trouble. He showed up and was very professional and courteous, explaining what he was doing, fix my truck and even went out of his way to program my key so I did not have to go to the dealership to get it done (saving me money by the way). I will call Luther and YourMechanic in the future if need be. Thank you...

I am from Kansas City MO. Staying at intown suites in Newport News VA for a couple of weeks. I was ready to go to Virginia Beach when my car wouldn't start. I was devastated . I looked up mobile mechanic . Made appointment with Matthew and that evening When I met him and he did the inspection. I knew then everything was going to be alright. I am a female and he didn't talk down to me like past experience with other mechanics and yet explained everything to me so i would understand . Matthew communicated with me every step of the way. I never had to wait on him he was on time. Professional and very knowledgeable. He got me back on the road again and even suggested a beach and a Mall to visit . (Loved the beach and the mall) The price to get my car fixed was much lower than I could have imagined. When he quoted me for the job it did not change. I didn't need a tow truck it was all done right where i was staying. I have been spreading the word because to me this is the best mechanic you could ever ask for. If you need a mechanic I recommend Matthew. Not only did I meet a good mechanic I made a new friend .

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.
