Thinking Of Fixing A Broken Ignition Switch Yourself?

Obviously, most car owners would like to fix or replace their ignition switch on their own without the need for a licensed technician. Indeed, there are many ignition switch repair how-to’s online which DIY your own ignition switch repair may seem like a tempting option for skillful and technically included car owners. However, replacing and fixing an ignition switch can be a challenging task, to say the least. Specifically, in modern vehicles, many parts need to be removed before the ignition switch is accessible for repairs or replacement.

For example, in order to remove the ignition switch, a technician has to disconnect the battery, remove the steering wheel, remove some of the plastic covering around the ignition switch, and then finally have access to the housing of the switch itself. 

Although for some, this may not sound like much work to fix ignition switch issues, in fact, removing a steering wheel is only half the story because what’s more important is the fact that putting everything back correctly so that your vehicle is safe to drive again. For this reason alone it is worth hiring a professional locksmith in Houston to do the job for you.

Benefits Of Hiring A Locksmith To Fix Your Car Ignition

Another reason Alamo Key & Lock suggests hiring a locksmith rather than trying to fix the ignition yourself is that many newer model cars feature electronic circuitry around the steering wheel housing and the ignition switch housing. Even though you may be a precise home handy person, if you damage the wiring and electronics while working on your vehicle, you might accidentally void warranties on the car. In addition, you might unintentionally break another electric part costing you, even more, $$$’s.

We are your trusted licensed, insured, and bonded professionals.  Our locksmiths repair, replace, auto ignitions all the time and can cut and program you a new car key to match the ignition on the spot.

Should I Repair Or Replace?

While it would be easy to give a glib answer online about whether you should replace or repair your car ignition switch, the truth is that the locksmith on site will have a better answer for you. Often times customers think that the ignition switch needs to be repaired or replaced, when in fact it’s only the car key that is broken. Alamo Key and Lock highly recommend that you speak with a qualified and licensed locksmith to get better guidance as to whether to repair your ignition switch or install a new one.

Ignition switches can stop working properly for many different reasons, some of which have nothing to do with the switch itself. While typical problems our locksmiths see with car ignition switches include loose fittings, stiff car key turning, jammed keys, and ignitions that don’t turn over, some of these issues have to do with other car parts and not the ignition itself. Specifically, the most likely issues arising from the ignition itself have to do with the car key alone, and not any other part of the car.
