Here are some things to look for if you think your ignition is failing.
Your engine simply dies
Your engine can stall if worn switch contacts lose voltage. It’s a common symptom of a bad ignition switch.
Your engine wont’ start
If your ignition switch fails, it won’t be able to supply power to the starter motor or other controls. If these systems don’t get power, your car isn’t going to start.
Your lighting or accessories go off briefly
An ignition switch that is starting to fail can result in temporary loss of power to your car’s electronics. Flickering dashboard lights are a very good sign of this happening.
