If you encounter an ignition problem Grand Rapids MI -- We are here to help. Here are some common causes.
My key is broken off in the ignition . . .
If you have a spare key, we can come and extract the broken key. If you'd like a copy of your spare, so you have an extra, we can do that too!
If you do not have a spare, we will come and extract the broken piece and, if possible, recreate a key from the pieces left. If key is badly damaged or a piece has been lost, this might not be possible. We'll need to replace the key and can do this as well, at the same time.
My key won't go into the ignition, or is stuck in the ignition and won't come out . . .
There are small wafers or pins inside (lining) the ignition. If these are broken or bent (from normal use, or a wrong key is used to try and start the car) they will prevent the key from being inserted and will need to be replaced. We are able to remove the ignition and replace these very small parts. Once this is done, the key will insert freely and without trouble!
