Looking for ignition switch replacement services near you in Orlando?

The ignition switch is an essential element of every automobile as it not only manages the engine’s starter system, but controls the power source for most electronic devices in the car.

It is a mechanical piece where the ignition key is inserted to start a vehicle. The ignition switch is one of the most critical parts of the vehicle. When it stops working other electrical components lose the ability to draw power from the battery. With a faulty ignition switch it is impossible to start the car or use any of its electrical components. Overall, it is a crucial component of the vehicle that is essential to maintain in order for your vehicle to operate properly.

Here are some reasons why ignition lock cylinder may fail:

Worn keys

If you have a key that is slightly damaged or visibly worn down, it can damage “wafers” (pins inside of ignition lock cylinder that correspond perfectly to the cuts of your key) inside the lock cylinder resulting in inability to turn the car key and preventing the ignition from unlocking

Worn/damaged wafers

The wafers themselves can wear down (so much so that in some cases the key can be removed while the engine is running), break or stick in a raised position, preventing the key from rotating.

Bent key

If the ignition lock cylinder is difficult to turn or the key cannot easily be inserted or pulled out, the key might be bent. Eventually this will cause wafer damage and ignition lock cylinder failure.

Repair or Replace?

Our goal is to repair a malfunctioning ignition lock cylinder by replacing or smoothing wafers. We will remove the ignition lock cylinder, completely disassemble it, clean and lubricate it, and replace all of the wafers.

Unfortunately, not all ignition lock cylinders can be repaired. In cases where an ignition lock cylinder has to be replaced, we will remove the old ignition lock cylinder and replace it with a new one. Depending on the car make and model, brand new ignition may come with a brand new key. In some cases, we can re-pin it to work with your old key.
