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.
What could be causing the problem with my ignition switch?
When a car suddenly doesn't start, many people assume that their car has a dead battery.
It's a good indication that a problem exists with the ignition switch when you place a key in the ignition and the car won't start.
If you're like a lot of drivers, your thoughts won't turn to an ignition problem right away.
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.
Will the ignition switch give any signs that it might stop working soon?
Unfortunately, one of the first signs of a problem is when the car won't start or when the engine cranks but won't turn over.
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 this occurs, it's usually due to a problem with an ignition cylinder spark.
After one of our locksmiths meets you at your vehicle, the first step is to evaluate what's going on with your ignition key and switch and determine if there's a possibility of repairing 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.
Is repairing or replacing my ignition switch the better option?
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.
However, our locksmiths can sometimes replace a defective wire in the ignition and it will start working again.
We can't always answer whether it's possible to complete a repair or replacement job because it depends on whether our suppliers have a replacement part available.
We're also conscious of your budget and will only proceed with work after you have approved it.
Before making a firm decision, we need to uncover the specific issue causing your ignition switch not to work.
How long should I expect to wait for you to fix my ignition?
Our locksmith technician will recommend either ignition repair or replacement after assessing the problem with your car and taking your preferences into consideration.
What is the time estimate for fixing my ignition switch?
We do our best to arrive within 30 minutes of your call and to complete the work in approximately 20 minutes.
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 older model cars or even newer models with high-tech security may have ignition switch covers that are more difficult to access.
Regardless of the specific work we perform, we guarantee to work efficiently to get you back on the road as soon as possible.
We also take extreme care not to cause more damage to your car, including its latches, screws, and plastic covers.

Depending on the make and model of your car, we may need to wait a bit before beginning work on its ignition switch.
Should we discover additional issues, it might not be possible to repair your ignition switch and we would need to replace it instead.
It's possible that we may need to slightly delay working on your ignition switch depending on the model and make your vehicle.
When your car won't start, it brings your life to a screeching halt.
We will always inform you of any potential delays and update your time estimate accordingly.
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 lock out company if any of these situations happen to you.
We understand that an unexpected situation like this can throw off your budget.
Many times, we can trace the problem to a breakdown in communication between your car's key and its ignition system.
These problems usually result when a key breaks inside of the ignition, gets stuck in the ignition, or fits in just fine but then won't turn. If any of these things happen to you, don't hesitate to contact us to request ignition repair or replacement 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
