Ignition switch


Recommended Posts

Hello,

Noticed this morning that my 2000 Boxster's ignition switch was acting very strange.

They key is very difficult to get in and once it's in, it sometimes will have no resistance and can completely make a full circle in the key hole.

It also gives me trouble taking it out and sometimes the dash lights and gauges are still on after the key finally comes out?

I'm guessing a new switch is needed?

Does anybody have any experience with this type of behavior?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Jim.

Thanks Loren,

I've seen these articles and other ones from pelican parts.

I'm still trying to figure out if I need a whole assembly or just the switch.

I think my real question is does this behavior sound as if it's just a switch replacement?

Regards,

Jim

It's a $10-$15 switch relay that you have to replace. It's a pain in the rear to get under the dash to replace it. If you're a big guy, it's going to be very difficult to get under the steering wheel area to replace it. Good luck!

Start looking for a flat-head screw driver. Small and short....about 3 inches in length....

Once you get it fixed, pray that you won't set off the airbag light.....then you have to order the Durametric tool to reset the light...about $300
