IGNITION REPAIR SERVICES
Problems with your ignition key or switch?
We take a lot of things for granted in life, including the expectation that our cars will start when we put a key in the ignition and turn it.
It can even be frightening if it's late at night, the weather conditions are poor, or you're stuck in an unfamiliar area far away from your home.
We understand your frustration and are here to help repair or replace your ignition 24 hours a day.
Why would my ignition suddenly refuse to start?
When a car suddenly doesn't start, many people assume that their car has a dead battery.
They act on this belief by finding jumper cables and attempting to bring the battery back to life.
The only problem is that the battery is fine, yet the car still won't start.
You will likely assume that something is wrong with your car's battery and attempt to jump-start it with cables.
This is difficult to figure out unless you have training and experience in locksmithing.
How can I tell when my ignition switch is about to give out?
It would be nice if your ignition gave clues of what was about to happen, but this usually isn't the case.
Often times, the first sign of trouble is when the engine turns over but doesn't start the car or the car just doesn't start at all.
When a certified locksmith technician arrives to your location, he or she will evaluate the situation and decide if it's possible to repair the ignition switch.
If so, the locksmith will quickly devise a plan to fix the problem.
The next logical step would be to replace the faulty ignition switch with a new one if a repair doesn't work or is inadvisable.
Would you recommend replacing or repairing my car's ignition switch?
While we prefer to go the repair route to save you time and money, this isn't always possible.
It also increases the likelihood of causing additional vehicle damage.
Repairing an ignition switch always runs the risk of causing further damage to your car.
Unfortunately, it isn't always possible for the locksmiths to know without inspecting your vehicle whether it's possible to repair the ignition or if they will move straight to replacement.
It can depend on whether a replacement part is immediately available and your budget for the job.
Before we decide which approach to take, it's necessary to inspect your ignition and determine the specific reasons for the switch failure.
Before making a firm decision, we need to uncover the specific issue causing your ignition switch not to work.
It often looks like one simple issue upfront only to turn into something more complex.
We give a guarantee of arriving at a job site within 30 minutes of receiving a service request.
What is the time estimate for fixing my ignition switch?
Naturally, this can vary a great deal depending on the specifics of your vehicle and the difficulty or ease of reaching the cover for your ignition switch.
However, your exact wait time depends on several individual factors such as the make and model of your vehicle and the design of your ignition switch cover.
We then quickly reassemble it after fixing the issue.
Some vehicles have additional parts that cause it to take longer to access the ignition switch.
Regardless of the specific work we perform, we guarantee to work efficiently to get you back on the road as soon as possible.
We take pride in the way we treat our customers' vehicles, including not causing damage to any plastic covers, latches, or screws while we work.
This also means that we won't damage any exposed wires while working on your car either.
Are you able to replace my car's ignition switch?
Yes, that is one of the specialties of the car unlock division.
We will likely need to switch our service plan to replacement instead of repair if we do find additional problems.
That being said, we do need to inspect the cylinder of your ignition to ensure it doesn't have other problems.
Should we discover additional issues, it might not be possible to repair your ignition switch and we would need to replace it instead.
We will be certain to update our time estimate if this happens.
That is because we could need more information about the ignition switch that we need to obtain from another party.
We know that and will work hard to get you back to your regular schedule as soon as we can.
The good news is that we can often connect a faulty ignition switch with a problem in the way your key is communicating with it.
For example, the switch is not receiving the proper message to start the car if a key is stuck in the ignition, part of a key broke off, or the key refuses to tun.
Please don't hesitate to call our leading car unlock company if any of these situations happen to you.
Our company understands that it's a frustrating situation when you need to be somewhere and your car won't start due to a faulty ignition.
