Overland Park IGNITION REPAIR
Broken ignition switch or key?
We take a lot of things for granted in life, including the expectation that our cars will start when we put a key in the ignition and turn it. It leaves you feeling annoyed and confused, especially if the problem with starting seemed to come out of nowhere. When an ignition key or switch problem leaves you stranded, just call us at any hour. We are available 24 hours a day and every day of the year.
What could be causing the problem with my ignition switch?
One of the most common reasons for the failure of a car to start after the driver places a key in the ignition is that something is wrong with the ignition switch. People often assume incorrectly that the problem is a dead battery. It's only when they try to jump-start the car and it doesn't start that they consider the possibility of a faulty ignition switch. A non-starting car with an ignition switch issue has a problem with the distribution of power at the location where the key turns. The flow of energy is not operating as it should. Replacing the ignition switch typically repairs this problem.
Will the ignition switch give any signs that it might stop working soon?
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.
Would it be better to try to repair my ignition switch?
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.
In some situations, what looks like a single issue with an ignition switch turns out to be several issues. After assessing your vehicle, our certified locksmith will let you know whether ignition switch repair or replacement is the better option in your unique situation.
