Signs That Your Ignition Needs Immediate Service

Car ignition switches can go bad for one reason or another. Many people think that their ignition has failed, when it may be another issue with the battery or starter. Ignition switch problems can cause car stalling or may not be able to even turn on the car. What do you do in this situation?

The first thing would be check the key. Is your key worn out and not turning in the ignition switch? This could be a sign that you need a new key or perhaps the transponder in your key is not working with the vehicle's electrical system. Some cars experience a manufacturer defect that can be covered by your warranty.

In other cases, if the lights come on the dash but the engine doesn't turn over, you could be dealing with a bad starter. Your battery could be the issue if your lights never come or flicker but the engine never turns over. In case of these issues, you can visit our car parts and repair center located in Greenville, MI.
