Damage from attempted theft or a wrong key forced in, or looseness from old age can cause your car’s ignition to malfunction and leave you stuck. These days, problems with your car’s computer or keyless ignition switch system can keep you from hitting the road. Whether your car’s ignition problem is mechanical, electrical, or hidden somewhere in your car’s electronics, our ignition repair experts can help.

Ignition Switch Replacement, or Ignition Cylinder Replacement?

The basic components of car ignition repair are ignition switch issues that affect the electrical ability to start your car, and the ignition cylinder, which allows your key to work and turn the ignition switch. Electronic components also provide a kind of “second key” for modern vehicles using a chip or transponder in your key. Some ignition switch repair shops handle only the mechanical side of your car’s ignition switch, but we can diagnose and perform car ignition repairs on sophisticated late-model vehicles.

Types of Car Ignition Lock Problems:

  • Ignition switch repair issues
  • Ignition cylinder problems
  • Transponder key, car computer, and other electronic problems
  • Wiring, starter, and engine problems
  • Bent or broken keys or key fobs
  • Worn down ignition wafers

It’s vital that your car ignition repair expert be able to diagnose and repair the correct ignition lock components. Our car locksmith service can handle the complex ignition locking system right up to the signal that tells the car to start.

Mobile Ignition Repair Adds Speed and Convenience
