Automotive Ignition Services

Here at Premier NW Locksmith Spokane we offer a wide range of automotive locksmith services which includes ignition switches malfunctions as well. Understanding an ignition issue is important as many make and model vehicles will share similar causes for the malfunction. We noticed that Chrysler models for example, had the same issues occur when it came to the ignition switches of the vehicle. We were able to identify couple of repeating issues.

When there is an issue with an ignition switch, you may be able to still insert the key inside the ignition switch, but in some cases, it won't turn the ignition which in return will not start the vehicle. Most of the time, the user would think the key is at fault where in reality it will be the ignition switch.

Similar to a traditional residential door lock, an ignition switch will have small wafers inside it to accommodate a specific key that will match it. Normal wear and tear or damage are things that can cause the wafers to move out from their place which can cause the issue of operating the ignition switch. The key may not fit all the way inside the cylinder and the user will not be able to start the vehicle. Some of the time, this particular issue can be resolved without replacing the actual ignition switch by adjusting the wafers inside it.

Spokane weather during these months of the year are not easy to deal with. Snow and ice are conditions that are no strangers to the area along with other things that may be affected by these conditions. One of the things are frozen automotive locks. Not once people that are about to leave  for work in the morning this time of the year and will be unable to unlock the door of the vehicle because the locks got frozen. However, there are several solutions that would help you deal with these types of situations.

The most common solution for a frozen lock is heat. One way to solve this type situation is to deep your key in boiling water or put it somewhere it can heat up quickly. If using boiling water, before attempting to unlock the frozen lock if using boiling water, the key should be wiped clean first. Using a lighter to heat up the key is another way that can be used.

Deicers are another good solution. they can be found almost at any store. Keeping a few cans handy would be recommended since you never know when you are going to need them and in addition they can be used for other applications as well that may have freezing issues. In order to use it on a frozen lock, a straw must be used in order to insert it inside the keyhole. After everything is setup, spray a little from the deicer and wait a couple of minutes for the material to work. Once you insert the key and jiggle, it should free the lock from the ice.

A material most people don't know that can do the trick in overcoming frozen locks is Vaseline. The chemical compound that is often found inside of a Vaseline can easily melt ice. You can dip the key in Vaseline and immediately insert it inside the lock. Before attempting to turn it, you should jiggle it first and do not use any force as the key might break inside the lock. Once you feel the ice was melted, you may attempt to give it a turn to unlock the door.
