Ignition problems are tricky, and often disguise themselves as another problem entirely. Many people’s first instinct when their car isn’t starting is to blame the battery. They often go to replace the battery (an expensive move) before considering the fact that the problem may be due to a faulty ignition.
Yes, this is sometimes possible. We will make every effort to fix your ignition for you, but this is sometimes not possible and an actual ignition replacement is unavoidable. We will always be upfront with you and give you all of the options.
The ignition is accessed normally from beneath your steering wheel. There is normally a small hole that leads to the ignition cylinder. We will try to use special tools to extract the ignition without the need for drilling but, there are certain situations where a drill may be needed. Once the ignition has been successfully removed, we can then go ahead and replace it with a new one.
