Some of the Common Ignition Switch Problems and solutions on how to fix them.

Solution 1

If the key does not start the engine, you should first check the switch functions to ensure everything is as it should be. While the switch is a master that delivers power to your vehicle and its accessories, modern cars come with added switch functions such as anti-theft and interlocking features.

Anti-theft function prevents the engine from turning on unless it receives the right code. If there is no code or a wrong code is relayed, the computer will fail to start the engine. Furthermore, the anti-theft switch circuit can become faulty and fail to recognize or send the right code to the computer. You should check to ensure everything is working as normally.

Ignition Switch

The ignition switch function locks the wheel once you remove the keys. Technical issues with the column lock can inhibit the switch from rotating or prevent the key from being removed once you turn the engine off. A professional can help you rectify this issue.

Solution 2

If the car’s ignition switch functions are working properly and still cannot get your engine roaring, you should now check other things that can also cause the problem such as fuses, battery and battery connection and bad starter connection.

You should note that over time your car battery connections can get corroded or dirty preventing the battery from connecting with your car and thus, cannot start. Clean the battery posts and start your car again. If the issue is not fixed you should check the battery to ensure it has enough power.

Dead battery is the most common cause for cars not starting. You can test the battery with a battery tester to check amps or indirectly by jump starting the car. If the car starts, the issue is the battery and you should replace it. However, if the issue is not resolved, you should now check the ignition switch.

If the battery checks out, but the starter remains silent, the problem could be due to a faulty ignition switch. To test the switch, you should turn the key to an on position, but without turning all the way to start. If you cannot notice red warning lights on your car’s dashboard, the ignition switch could be faulty. If the red warning lights light up, you should turn the key back to the start point and check whether they turn off. Moreover, you can turn on the headlights and try to ignite your car. The lights should either dim or turn off completely, but if they do not, you should contact Los Angeles Locksmith Pros to have the switch replaced.

Ignition switch does not turn when the car key is inserted

To solve this problem, you should try wiggling your car’s steering wheel as the steering column can be binding if one of your car’s front wheels is positioned at an angle against the curb. A worn or wrong key can also avoid the switch from turning. You should try igniting your car with a spare key. If the car ignites, the problem could be a bad key. You should throw away the old key and contact LA Locksmith Pros to make you a new key.

However, lubricating the switch with a nonconductive lubricant may help especially if the ignition switch cannot easily turn in either direction. You should avoid using penetrating oil as it can cause short problems to the switch electrical contacts.

An engine that starts and runs ordinarily but abruptly dies as you driving

This problem is a common symptom of an ignition switch that is worn. Your car can momentarily lose voltage if the contacts inside the ignition switch are worn especially when you are driving on a rough road due to heat or vibrations. To deal with this problem, you should lighten the ring of your keys as much as possible. You should avoid carrying extra keys, fobs, pendants, jewelry or remotes that you do not need on the car ring.
