Reasons Why Your Ignition Isn’t Working

Extracting a broken key from a car ignition

If you’ve broken the key off in the ignition, we use specialized tools to carefully extract the broken piece without damaging the lock.

Car ignitions are complicated pieces of equipment, and many things can go wrong with them. When this happens, your car isn’t moving, which can leave you stranded at the least convenient times and places. Some of the most common ignition problems we see include:

  • The cuts in the key are worn down and no longer line up with the tumblers in the ignition switch
  • Broken spring in the ignition switch
  • A heavy keychain has caused damage to the ignition tumblers
  • Worn ignition switch contacts
  • Years of normal wear and tear
  • The key broke off in the ignition
  • Electronic problems with keyless ignition systems
  • Computer glitches, bad codes, and a defective startup system
  • A decorative metal “bling ring” is blocking your key’s RFID signal
  • The RFID chip in your key, fob, or remote is malfunctioning, and your car’s computer won’t recognize it

How Much Does Ignition Repair Cost?

Our highly trained technicians use the same tools and equipment as the dealerships, but our mobile ignition repair service is much more convenient and typically much more affordable!

The price of an ignition repair job depends on multiple variables. For example, cleaning and lubricating a sticky ignition switch will typically be priced differently from flashing/reprogramming your car’s onboard computer so it communicates with your key again. The make and model of your vehicle is also a key variable. Still, you can always trust that our experienced and professional technicians will always be honest and transparent with you. After diagnosing the problem, they’ll let you know the cause of the issue, what they need to do to repair it, and how much it will cost.

You can also rest assured that an ignition repair job handled by Bob’s Lock Safe & Key will typically be less expensive and much more convenient than the same service at the dealership. Instead of having your car towed to the dealership and leaving it overnight, our mobile service brings the technician to you, whether you’re at home, at work, or stuck in the grocery store parking lot.

Our technicians have years of experience and are highly trained in ignition, lock, and key issues for all makes and models of foreign and domestic cars, vans, trucks, and SUVs.
