Want to learn more about Ignition Switch repairs?

Read our short guide with information on costs, symptoms and more.

What does an Ignition Switch do?

The ignition switch, or starter switch, is a switch that controls the ignition system. When you turn the key to start the car the switch will direct electricity from the battery to the rest of the ignition system activating the starter solenoid and motor, in turn activating the engine. Additionally, it enables electricity from the battery to reach most other electrical components in the car.

How do you know there is something wrong with an Ignition Switch?

  • When the car does not start.
  • When starting the car is problematic.
  • When the engine cuts out after starting.
  • When components powered by the electrical system do not work like the radio or lights.

When should you consider an Ignition Switch replacement?

Seeing that the ignition switch is the component that enables electricity to reach most vital components of a car it is important the switch works correctly. Over time, the switch's condition might deteriorate due to extensive use and might be unable to provide a solid electrical connection. Especially the ignition's lock cylinder is prone to wear.

Should you experience problems with an ignition switch then it is advisable to have it inspected and, if necessary, have it replaced. Remember, the ignition switch should always be serviced as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer.

What happens during a Ignition Switch replacement?

  • Mechanic will read the ECU for possible fault codes related to the ignition system.
  • Mechanic will inspect the ignition system and ignition switch by way of the spark tester to establish what fault there is in the system.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace the ignition switch.
  • Mechanic will advise if any other parts need to be replaced.
  • Mechanic will check if the system works properly again.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will make any adjustments.

How much does an Ignition Switch Replacement cost?

The cost of replacing the ignition switch depends on your car and what parts your car's manufacturer recommends using for the replacement. Find out what you could save by having an ignition switch replaced by ClickMechanic, by selecting your car at the top of this page!
