What Signs Indicate a Problem With Your Ignition Switch?

Temecula car owners may assume that the problem is the battery when their car won't start. However, the issue may be bigger. Switch failure can mimic a dead battery, making you think the issue is simple when it is more complex.

If your ignition switch fails, you lose the spark that triggers the starter which cranks the car. When an ignition switch malfunctions, the starter may get some or none of the power it needs. This is why the car won't start or stalls multiple times before it cranks. Electric accessories may not work because the ignition switch is the conduit of their power when the engine is off.

Don't let ignition trouble leave you stranded. When you bring your car to DCH Acura of Temecula, our auto service techs will determine the exact problem and make timely, effective repairs.
