Car Ignition Repair Makes Life So Much Easier

If you’ve been jiggling your key in the ignition so you can start your car, or having other trouble where the ignition is loose or unreliable, now’s the time to take care of it and get rid of the stress. Sooner or later, you’ll be stuck and need ignition repair anyway. The same goes for unreliable electronic lock systems, displaying codes or not activating every time. Physical damage to your ignition, whether from a stuck key in the ignition, theft damage, a broken key in the ignition, or a key that won’t turn in the ignition but should, are all problems our car ignition repair experts and skilled locksmiths can help with. We’ll come to you, 24 hours a day for emergencies, and sort the problem out so you’ll be on your way, and can relax when you turn the key in the future.

A Stuck Ignition Can Cause Problems in Your Driveway, Too

In many cars, the ignition key unlocks the steering wheel, so until you get ignition repair you’re pretty much stuck. You can’t even move the car very much until you get the steering free, but we can fix the broken ignition, make an ignition key replacement if needed, and make your car mobile again! Our locksmith services can take care of any other car key replacement needs, such as making new keys for your doors, trunk, and glovebox if your ignition replacement involves a new key, or in many cases, we can rekey the ignition to match your existing keys. We also offer ignition key, EEPROM, and ECU or ECM repairs to go with your ignition repair services.

Specialized Volkswagen Ignition Repair

We specialize in everything automotive including VW brand ignition repair.

With over 25 years of experience, there isn’t much we can’t do. That includes VW ignition repair. This is something that not many locksmiths can do and up until recently, it meant having to go to a VW dealership to have the issue fixed. If your steering lock or ignition fails, we can fix the issue promptly and completely. We have the expertise to get the job done right on-site.

How Does the Key Get Stuck?

When your VW ignition is broken, it can be frustrating and even dangerous if the key is stuck in the On position. If this is the case, the engine can’t be turned off unless you disconnect it under the hood, which obviously presents its own problems. The key may also get stuck in the Off or Accessories positions as well. Luckily, this VW faulty ignition problem can be solved by our locksmiths. Our team has seen this issue time and time again, and we have the experience and knowledge to get your vehicle up and running again in no time.

What Causes This Issue?

Wear and tear on the ignition system over time can cause small parts to seize up, leading to the key getting stuck in one position. We know exactly what needs to be done to get your ignition back in working order. The solution is to remove the ignition and replace it, which can be a long process. However, our skilled locksmiths will remove and replace the broken parts on-site, without moving your car to a workshop or auto garage.

What Models Are Affected?

If you’re driving a Volkswagen made between 2000 and 2012, your vehicle may be at risk for this ignition problem. Models like the Golf, Polo, Amarok, Beetle and Jetta are some of the most affected. We can help with all of the following VW ignition issues:

  • VW ignition replacement
  • VW Beetle ignition replacement
  • VW Golf ignition replacement
  • VW Jetta ignition replacement

We’ve got the VW parts to fix your ignition issue.

Specialized Audi Ignition Repair

Much like VW vehicles, some Audi vehicles have issues with the ignition lock cylinder. This can be an incredibly frustrating issue to deal with as it can mean the key gets stuck in one position and will refuse to turn no matter how much you wiggle the key or how much pressure is applied. Our team has extensive experience with Audi models, including the Audi A3, TT, and R8, which are known to develop ignition issues over time. When this problem occurs, your key may get stuck in the ignition in the Off position, Accessories position, or even the On position with the engine running. Our team can quickly and efficiently replace the broken ignition system, so you can get back on the road in no time.

Our experienced Audi locksmith technicians can assist with any of the following:

  • Audi A3 ignition replacement
  • Audi A4 ignition replacement
  • Audi A5 ignition replacement
  • Audi A6 ignition replacement
  • Audi TT ignition replacement
  • Audi Q5 ignition replacement
