Ignition Repair

Have you ever been in a situation where a car you have trusted for years suddenly seems to fail you? Or a situation where you are left stranded because your car refuses to start. This could lead to unwanted repercussions, including your time being wasted, appointments being missed, and you being left helpless in cases of emergencies. It does not have to be this way. At The Key Guys, we are experts at issues regarding keys and ignitions.

A car’s ignition is a vital part of a car; without it, the car would not leave its parking spot. Due to where it is located in the car, the ignition is very prone to wear and tear. The consistent slotting of your key into the ignition would wear it out over time. An attempt to break into your car and forcefully turn it on could also damage your ignition.

The good news here is that ignition issues can easily be handled if brought to the right hands.

At The Key Guys, changing, fixing, and maintaining your ignition is made easier. With very skilled locksmiths and state-of-the-art tools, we can help you diagnose and proffer the easiest and most affordable solutions to whatever problems your ignition might have. Asides from affordable service, you would get your repairs done in a timely fashion, saving you money and giving you more time to handle other daily tasks.

Know if you need your ignition repaired

There are times when your car not starting might be due to your car battery being drained or a faulty key. When you are quite sure that your battery is in good condition and that your key is not bad, reaching out to a locksmith would be your best bet.

There are various factors that can cause your ignition to get faulty. If you notice any of the below, then you need to reach out to your locksmith.

  • Dirty or clogged ignition

  • Damage from criminal tampering

  • Key won’t turn/stuck ignition

  • Faulty ignition switch

  • Key enters ignition but can’t be removed

  • Car won’t start

  • Key turns but engine won’t crank

Tips to keep in mind when you start your car; you should always make sure the battery is in working conditions. You should also ensure that your gear is in ‘park.’ Be sure to use the right keys, and ensure that your vehicle is routinely checked to avoid simple but costly mistakes.

Do you need your ignition repaired or ignition replaced?

Proper consultation with a good locksmith would help you identify which alternative to go with. If the damage to the ignition is minimal and does not affect every part of the ignition, simple repairs can be done, and you can get your car back on the road. Although repairs might be the less expensive option, they might not always be the best. After diagnosis, a good locksmith should let you know the extent of damage to your ignition. If the damage is extensive, then you might need the ignition replaced completely.
