How Does Knowing How Each Position on the Ignition Switch Works Inform You of Upcoming Ignition Problems?

The ignition switch on your vehicle is built to reduce power usage during startup and to close the circuit that allows your electrical components to work. Each of the three positions of the Ignition switch provides power to different elements of your vehicle.

When your car is “off,” you can still send power to the headlights. The brightness of your unpowered headlights provides a preliminary idea of battery charge. When the second position does not turn on all your electrical components, you know that the ignition system is worn. When you try to crank in the third position, and you get no response, you know that you have an issue with the ignition system.

When you experience any of the initial ignition switch symptoms, bring your car to our service center at Palm Springs Lincoln in Cathedral City, CA for a quick analysis.
