It’s happened to most of us at one time or another. You’re leaving to go to work, come home from work, or wherever you happen to be traveling. You get in the car, seat belt goes on, and you put the key in the ignition. At this point, you’d expect your engine to roar to life or, if you have a Hybrid vehicle, hear the telltale hum to let you know the engine is running. Instead, you just hear a click click click. Is the problem a dead battery? Maybe, but it’s more likely that the ignition has a problem. DId you know you can call a locksmith to solve ignition problems? You can! Call Lock Poppers!


First, how do you know if the ignition switch is faulty? Other than the obvious clicking noise in place of the car starting, there are a few things to watch for. First, you might hear the engine cranking but not starting up, or you might not even hear the cranking in the first place. Basically, when the car isn’t starting like this, it’s because the power is disrupted right at the point when the ignition switch is turned by the car key.

If you’re not someone familiar with auto mechanics, this might sound like a big deal. Trust us, it’s not too bad. The first thing that happens is we need to determine if repairing or replacing the ignition makes more sense. With repairs, if a certain wire or part needs to be swapped out, it can be done quickly. But there can be numerous issues with ignitions, and sometimes it just makes more sense to replace it. No big deal, because replacing an ignition usually takes around 20 minutes.

That’s good news, but want better news? The friendly professional locksmiths at Lock Poppers have the skills and equipment to come to you and either fix or replace your ignition entirely.
