As you drive around Caldwell, ID. you may not think about the processes involved in getting it started. However, we at Team Mazda, don't want you stranded, so here are signs the ignition needs repairing.

A common sign of an ignition needing repair is you cannot turn the key. Try to jiggle the steering wheel to remove the ignition lock, or ensure the battery has been charged. Sometimes, if a key breaks, metal gets stuck in the ignition, which needs professional repair.

The ignition has to make an electrical connection from the motor to the battery, which could also fail because of the battery. Try electrical components, such as windows or the radio, to check for a dead battery.

If the battery isn't dead, listen for the motor to click when you turn the ignition. Silence from the motor is commonly an indicator the ignition needs servicing. Sometimes, an ignition that needs repairing will cause the dashboard lights to flicker or the vehicle to stall.
