An ignition switch as the name suggests is a switch which ignites the fuel within the engine. It is the switch that most people turn when they want to start their vehicle. Traditionally, the ignition switch has always been located right under the steering wheel and part of the steering lock mechanism. However, newer vehicles come equipped with a push button switch and some even with remote ignition. That said there are various types of ignition switches which is why it's important that you buy the right switch for your vehicle. Ideally, you’ll want to buy a switch which is secure and lasts long.
Generally speaking, you’ll know that something is wrong with the ignition switch if you’re unable to start your vehicle. Sometimes the switch can also get stuck. In some cars the ignition switch will start to become harder as it wears off and in this case the whole switch will need to be replaced. Fortunately, ignition switches are neither hard to find nor are they expensive. Additionally, most cars rarely need to have their ignition switches replaced because they rarely fail.
Buying an ignition switch for any vehicle is not difficult. Regardless, of the vehicle you own all you need to do is find the right switch by matching the part number of the existing one to the new one you want to buy.
