Lotus Elan Ignition switch replacement

Do I need to replace my Lotus Elan ignition switch?

The ignition system plays the important role in being able to start a Lotus Elan. An integral part of the ignition system is the ignition switch. The ignition switch or starter switch is typically located on the steering column and is activated when you turn the key or push a button to start a Lotus Elan.

When you turn the key on your Lotus Elan, the ignition switch kicks the electrical system into gear so you can use the power windows, stereo and other accessories and it also powers the starter motor which is needed to crank over the engine.

If you get in the Lotus Elan and it won't start and doesn't make any noise when trying to start it or the engine is running but it stalls and you can't restart the car, then you may have a faulty ignition switch.

Over time the ignition switch can fail, the contacts and components can wear or break. If you notice difficulty starting the Lotus Elan and you have to jiggle the key around in the lock to get it working then get it inspected. The last thing you want is your Lotus Elan to stall while you're driving.

The ignition switch on your Lotus Elan can wear out or simply fail suddenly and need to be replaced – that’s why you should be familiar with AutoGuru!
