What is a Key Ignition Barrel?

Changing a key ignition barrel (also known as an ignition switch or lock cylinder) can be a complex task and requires mechanical knowledge and tools. Fast Car Locksmith can provide automatic support depending on your vehicle’s make and model.

How it Works

  2. The initial steps are to disconnect the negative terminal of the battery to prevent any accidental electrical shorts. Remove the Steering Column Covers

Remove the Old Ignition Switch

The next step involves locating the ignition switch on the steering column. There may be a case to remove the steering wheel itself, depending on your vehicle model. This may involve removing the airbag and other components, which can be complex and require specialized tools.

1. We safely disconnect battery, ignition switch and connecting wires.

2. We also manage any securing bolts that hold the ignition switch in place.
