One of the signs that you might not associate with a failing ignition switch in your car is stalling while driving in Vancouver. This is a common sign that something is wrong because the key won’t stay in the proper position to keep the car from cutting off.
Pay attention to the lights on your dashboard. If your ignition isn’t working properly, then the lights will usually flicker or go off completely if the car stops running. Marine Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM can examine the battery to ensure that it’s not an issue with an electrical component.
