You get behind the wheel, slide your key into the ignition – and nothing happens. You turn the key again, and you don’t even notice the click of the starter motor turning over – what’s going on? For most people in this situation, we think we might have a dead battery.
However, you’re not a car mechanic – So, diagnosing the issue is a challenge. It may be that you’re dealing with a more severe malfunction of your electrical or mechanical system in your car.
One of the more common faults that cause this issue is ignition failure. If your car's ignition is faulty or dead, then you may need to replace it to bring your engine back to life.
Your first thought that crosses your mind when your car won’t start is to locate a mechanic or auto-electrician. While this isn’t a bad idea – it may not be necessary. A qualified auto locksmith can replace your ignition assembly if it's faulty or broken.
At Dawn and the Lock, we offer mobile car locksmith services, and we have a talented team of technicians who can diagnose your problem in seconds. Call into our offices and ask to speak to one of our professional technicians. They’ll guide you through a quick check process to identify the nature of the ignition fault.
If the technician suspects that your ignition is the culprit, we’ll visit your site, wherever you are in San Mateo County, and repair your ignition on site. For the most part, we’re able to fix minor faults with your ignition while you wait. However, in some cases where we need to order you a new ignition, you may have to wait for a few days for us to receive the right parts to repair your ignition.
If you lost your car key – don’t stress, call Dawn and the Lock. We specialize in rekey car ignition services, and we’ll have you back on the road in no time at all. A qualified car locksmith has all the tools and expertise you need to get your car started.
