The car or truck you love driving should start and run like the day you drove it off the lot, wouldn't you agree? GM makes ignitions to help make sure it can keep doing just that.
How your ignition works is straightforward. Turn your key in the ignition lock cylinder, the ignition switch triggers, and your vehicle gets going. Under the hood, the starter motor, a starter solenoid, an ignition coil, and your car battery work together to send an electrical charge to the engine cylinder head. That's where your spark plugs are. Their leads capture the charge, using it to ignite the mix of fuel and air in the engine. The mix combusts and releases power -- power your engine runs on. Your vehicle then starts. With a little help from its alternator, it keeps running, too -- as well as it can.
If your model's having problems starting, though, it can mean your ignition is going bad, if it hasn't failed already. To figure out what could be going on, run a careful inspection: plug in a code reader. Also, look for the signs of an ignition going out. They include:
- Your vehicle stalling
- Flickering lights and displays on your dashboard
- Being unable to turn your key in the cylinder
- Being unable to start your vehicle at all
