FAQs

Why would my ignition suddenly refuse to start?

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.

What are some of the signs that I will need to replace the ignition switch soon?

Unfortunately, one of the first signs of a problem is when the car won't start or when the engine cranks but won't turn over. This usually happens due to a spark coming from the ignition cylinder. When a certified locksmith technician arrives to your location, he or she will evaluate the situation and decide if it's possible to repair the ignition switch. If so, the locksmith will quickly devise a plan to fix the problem. If not, it will be necessary to replace the switch of your ignition instead.

Would it be better to try to repair my ignition switch?

It might seem like ignition switch repair is simple and the obvious solution. Unfortunately, this is often not the case. Repairing an ignition switch always runs the risk of causing further damage to your car. However, our locksmiths can sometimes replace a defective wire in the ignition and it will start working again. We can't always answer whether it's possible to complete a repair or replacement job because it depends on whether our suppliers have a replacement part available. We're also conscious of your budget and will only proceed with work after you have approved it.

Before making a firm decision, we need to uncover the specific issue causing your ignition switch not to work. It often looks like one simple issue upfront only to turn into something more complex. Our locksmith technician will recommend either ignition repair or replacement after assessing the problem with your car and taking your preferences into consideration.
