Without your ignition, you can’t get where you need to go. That’s why it is critical to ensure that your car ignition is functioning properly. Over time and with continued use, however, the ignition can fail. This can be further exacerbated by removing the keys frequently, or damage from thieves.

Ignition system repair – Sometimes, an ignition issue goes beyond a broken key. Our ignition system repair experts can provide a detailed system analysis to identify the cause of your malfunction. In many cases, it is the result of steering lock or ignition cylinder.

Ignition switch repair – If you are experiencing sudden stalls when driving or power issues, then it may be time to repair your ignition switch.

Ignition lock repair – Most ignition locks can be repaired by replacing or smoothing wafers. If it is more serious, then you may require a new locking mechanism.

Ignition Rekey – Ignition rekeying is a process that involves changing the key code of a vehicle’s ignition cylinder. This process is typically done when the owner of a vehicle needs to restrict access to the car by previous key holders, such as in cases of lost or stolen keys, or when there is a suspicion that the key code has been compromised or lost.

Common Problems 

The car ignition is one of the most complex components of your vehicle. Though turning over a key may seem like an easy thing to do, there are many parts and processes that go into getting your car moving. If one of the elements of your ignition is malfunctioning, then it can affect how the rest of your car performs. These issues can cause your key to not be able to turn over correctly, or can even cause your car to stall when you are driving. 

Some of the most common reasons for a car ignition failure include:

  • Key that’s broken and stuck in the ignition
  • Ignition that’s dirty or obstructed
  • Criminal damage to ignition
  • Ignition that’s stuck or won’t turn with key
  • Defective ignition switch
  • Unable to remove key from ignition once inserted
  • Key stuck in ignition and won’t come out
  • Car that won’t turn on and the immobilizer is still on
  • Key turns, but the engine won’t start
  • Lost all car keys

If your car is experiencing ignition problems, then it’s time to call a trained technician. This kind of repair work should only be done by a qualified expert who can identify the source of the problem and make the necessary repairs using genuine and authorized parts. Any work done by someone who is not a professional could void your car’s warranty.

Why Choose Car Ignition Mechanic over a Dealer?

If your car is experiencing ignition problems, your first thought may be to return it to the dealer. This is not necessary and can often be more costly than trusting your mechanic. You need a technician on your side who is going to quickly diagnose the cause of your ignition malfunction and provide you with honest repairs and service.

That’s why car owners trust Ignition Repair Canada. We provide a detailed quote for any work being done and don’t try to sell you parts or services that you don’t need.
