This is the genuine, original equipment (OEM) ignition switch. Ignition switches serve multiple purposes, ranging from starting the car (ignition) to security (locking the steering wheel when the key). Wear to either the electrical or mechanical parts of the assembly can prevent proper functionality.

If you are having electronic issues related to the ignition switch, such as the starter not engaging when the key is turned to "Start", but the switch is otherwise still functional (the key turns fine and the steering lock works), you may only need to replace the electrical portion of your switch; see 12-4208 in Related Items.

*Key Note:
Ignition Switches come with 2 pre-cut keys. These are cut to match the replacement switch itself, and will not match your existing locks. A skilled automotive locksmith may be able to rekey the lock in the switch if desired.
