Here are some signs that your ignition switch needs replacement.
Firstly, disconnect the negative terminal of your battery and ensure it doesn’t come in contact during the process of ignition replacement.
Your ignition switch is part of the steering column; the only way you can expose it is by removing the trims around the steering wheel. You should refer to your car’s manual when doing this. If not, call a professional locksmith.
The next thing is to get the steering wheel out of the way if you can’t still find the ignition switch. In some car models, this process will not be necessary.
There is always a plastic surrounding your ignition switch. Remove this cover with a screwdriver to expose your faulty ignition switch.
Before removing your switch, you have to set the switch to the ‘acc’ mode to be able to release it. Also, there will likely be small screws holding the switch in place. So, ensure to unscrew with a screwdriver for better access.
