FAQs

What could be causing the problem with my ignition switch?

It can be baffling when your car started fine the last time you used it, which was possibly only minutes ago, and won't start now. It's a good indication that a problem exists with the ignition switch when you place a key in the ignition and the car won't start. If you're like a lot of drivers, your thoughts won't turn to an ignition problem right away. You will likely assume that something is wrong with your car's battery and attempt to jump-start it with cables. You suddenly realize what the true problem is when that doesn't work.

How can I tell when my ignition switch is about to give out?

It would be nice if your ignition gave clues of what was about to happen, but this usually isn't the case. Often times, the first sign of trouble is when the engine turns over but doesn't start the car or the car just doesn't start at all. When this occurs, it's usually due to a problem with an ignition cylinder spark. After one of our locksmiths meets you at your vehicle, the first step is to evaluate what's going on with your ignition key and switch and determine if there's a possibility of repairing the problem. The next logical step would be to replace the faulty ignition switch with a new one if a repair doesn't work or is inadvisable.

Is repairing or replacing my ignition switch the better option?

Repairing the switch of an ignition isn't as simple as you might expect. It's often better to opt for replacement right away rather run the risk of incurring additional damage. Sometimes it's possible to repair a wire in the ignition switch and get it working again. The decision of whether to repair or replace often depends on whether a replacement component is available and how much it costs. However, we would need to determine the precise issue with your ignition switch before getting to that point.

Before we decide which approach to take, it's necessary to inspect your ignition and determine the specific reasons for the switch failure. It has been our experience that something that looks like a simple fix initially often turns into a more complex issue due to discovering several issues with the ignition.

What is the time estimate for fixing my ignition switch?

After a member of our team meets you at your car, it normally takes him or her approximately 20 minutes to finish the job after recovering all of the necessary parts. As with all of our repair and installation jobs, the exact timeframe for finishing the job with your ignition switch depends on how complex its cover is.
